Considering all of the things that are considered protected speech under the First Amendment, it’s a little surprising to learn that, no, you can’t jump the White House fence and claim free expression.

NBC 4’s Scott MacFarlane reports Thursday that a judge in Washington, D.C., ruled against a Connecticut man who jumped the White House fence on Thanksgiving Day 2015 while wearing an American flag over his shoulders.

Joseph Caputo argued that he entered the White House grounds with the “noble purpose” of “calling attention to various deficiencies in the Constitution.” He has been charged with a misdemeanor count of unlawfully entering restricted government grounds and faces a trial next month.

“There is, after all, no First Amendment right to express one’s self in a nonpublic area like the White House,” the judge determined.

That wasn’t the only White House fence news today. Caputo might have though he was drawing attention to domestic issues, but at least he wasn’t there to collect prize winnings.

He came to D.C. to collect money from the government? That’s not how it works at all.

Ryan Cain, 22, pleaded not guilty on Thursday to a charge of illegal entry.

The Secret Service plans to raise the White House fence another 5 feet in 2018.
