A protester was arrested on Tuesday for posing as journalist and throwing Russian flags at President Trump as he arrived at the Senate GOP lunch.
Ryan Clayton was wearing a suit and posing as a member of the press pool when he began screaming that “Trump is treason” and threw a handful of small flags at the president as he was walking alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Trump kept his cool and did not react as the unhinged protester was apprehended.
When asked about the incident, McConnell told reporters that he had not even noticed it happening.
“You guys were hollering so loud frankly I didn’t even notice it,” the Senate Majority Leader told reporters who were gathered.
In July, Clayton was also apprehended in a Senate office building after throwing Russian flags at Jared Kushner.
Clayton is a member of Bob Creamer’s group “Americans Take Action.” Someone from the same group was previously kicked out of CPAC for handing out Russian flags with Trump’s name on them to members of the crowd.

Shortly after the incident, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe posted a video of Clayton following and screaming at one of his young female undercover reporters and attempting to enter the cab she was taking to get away from him.

It is unclear who signed Clayton in to the area, allowing him to gain such close access to Trump for this stunt.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
