According to the Washington Post, the Secret Service will be changing up its presidential detail to bring on agents who’ve previously worked with Joe Biden, fearing that agents who’ve worked with President Trump may have been politicized — which seems to come as a great relief to a number of Biden supporters on Twitter who were apparently afraid agents who’d been politicized by Trump might have tried to harm or even assassinate Biden.
Secret Service is altering the presidential detail to bring on agents who previously worked with Biden amid concern that some agents were politically aligned with Trump, @CarolLeonnig reports https://t.co/RX5st9GEC5

Why would any Secret Service agent be politically aligned?

We were just assured this week that Biden, unlike Trump, was going to show “deference and respect” for professionals like those serving in the Secret Service, so what’s the concern? Does he not trust the Secret Service?
This is smart.

I am soooooo f*cking glad to hear this! I knew this was going to be a genuine concern. I want to know how many of trump's private security was allowed in Secret Service detail without clearance. https://t.co/r6DPxd7r1J

This makes me very nervous for VP Kamala Harris. Should we now question her detail?

The American people should not trust ANYONE that has had ANY dealings with Trump OR his administration. ?

That we have to worry about the integrity of our Secret Service agents is something we have never even dreamed of on this country.
Frightening that we could possibly be in this place.

They have every right to be concerned. Political assassinations have plagued our history. https://t.co/FQo5XYRujB

Seriously? So we don’t trust the Secret Service anymore to do their jobs?
Wouldn't you just make that guy the food taster? https://t.co/ooDLe3vX05

Wasn't there a recent news cycle about the secret service all hating Trump because of his lack of covid precautions? https://t.co/QDdyjZlM2l
— Noam Blum (@neontaster) December 31, 2020
Oh, so they're just saying out loud that they think the Secret Service agents would harm their protectee?
What a wonderful protection of norms and such.
This doesn't undermine the Secret Service at all. No sir. https://t.co/HqEwy19VzO

Or, it could be Joe likes to run around naked in front of female agents.

Yeah, maybe he’s just more comfortable swimming naked in front of female agents he’s worked with before.
