Proud Boy Leader Says He Was Invited to White House. White House Says It Was Actually a Public Xmas Tour. - 2020-12-12
Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio said on Saturday that he had been invited to the White House, ostensibly while he was in Washington, D.C. to attend a series of rallies protesting the results of the 2020 election.
His posts, which were made on the Trumpian social media site Parler, set off alarm bells over the possibility that a top figure with a far-right, neo-fascist movement had been granted an audience with top government officials.
But the White House says that he was not, in fact, invited at all and was merely on a public Christmas tour of the complex.
