    Deliberately or otherwise, your post is confused, starting with your reply not matching with my post you quoted.

    You argue that the President is in the immediate presence of the Secret Service at all times. What is the factual basis for that assumption? Do you mean during bowel movements? Intimate moments with a spouse? All meetings with foreign leaders, the NSA, family members, telephone calls, etc? I never argued that the Secret Service exists as federal lifeguards. But swimming poses the danger of drowning and dying alone, unlike the activities I listed above.

    Swimming nude in front of offended/trapped federal employees is wrong, as you agreed: "Female Secret Service Agents shouldn't be used in that situation. " Post 1333.

    Allowing them to opt out or, simply, wearing a swim suit takes care of the problem. And wouldn't make you twist yourself in knots trying to defend his behavior.

    Warbler confuses "guarding" with "presence".

    Secret Service doesn't need to be present in a bathroom. Secret Service doesn't need to be present in the bowling alley in the basement of the White House.

    Secret Service probably does need to be present out of doors, like a swimming pool.

    The question arises whether Warbler is being obtuse out of willfulness or ignorance.

    Okay, the secret service isnít always in the immediate presence of the President, but they are always close by. They have to be because otherwise the President would be in danger of an attack. Weíve already lost 4 Presidents to assassins, we donít need to lose another. I do agree he should either wear a swimsuit or female agents should not be used.

    I saw in the paper that Trump is talking about pardoning the Jan 6 rioters. One a-hole pardoning other a-holes. I guess we need to pass an amendment to the Constitution taking away the Presidentís pardoning powers. The founders never though Americans would elect idiots to the Presidency who would abuse the pardoning powers.

    Founders anticipated some would want to amend the Constitution based on feelz. Thankfully itís not that easy.

    Yeah, while I don't know what the rules are regarding what the bar can and can't tell its members to do or say, but this seems like it would be be a violation of the 1st amendment.

    the reasons I want to amend the Constitution aren't based on "feelz", they are based on the fact that Trump wants to abuse the pardoning powers to pardon those that rioted at the Capital. Shameful.

    Well, that would eliminate the need to think and be responsible for your decisions.
