According to several reporters traveling with President Donald J. Trump, four motorcycle police officers were injured in a crash while escorting his motorcade.

“Breaking: Trump’s vehicle is fine, but some officers who are part of his motorcade crashed. We could see at least a couple officers on ground and injured,” said Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs. “I saw 3 officers down on Interstate 10 near Lake Charles as Trump motorcade headed to Hackberry. One in grassy ditch, sitting up. One flat on his back on highway shoulder, bleeding. A third standing up, bleeding from his arm. Our whole side of highway was closed to traffic.”

Steve Herman of Voice of America confirmed that four officers were injured in the crash.

“‘Four motorcycle police officers were involved in an accident as the [President’s] motorcade left the airport’ in [Louisiana] confirms [The White House] which says no one was seriously injured,” he said.

Secret Service also released a statement on the accident.

“Today, at approximately 1:30pm CDT, four motorcycle police officers were involved in an accident during a Presidential motorcade in Lake Charles, LA. Three of the four officers were taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries,” the law enforcement entity said. “The injured officers were from the Westlake Police Department, Sulfur Police Department and the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office. The accident did not impact the movement of the motorcade,”

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
