Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff on Tuesday afternoon was rushed out of a DC school by Secret Service after a bomb scare.
Kamala Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, was visiting Dunbar High School for Black History Month when Secret Service whisked him out of the school.
The schoolchildren were evacuated after Emhoff was taken to a secure location.
U.S. Secret Service was made aware of a security threat at a school where the @SecondGentleman was meeting with students and faculty. Mr. Emhoff is safe and the school has been evacuated. We are grateful to Secret Service and D.C. Police for their work.
