This is about as close as I got to the White House.
We thought about trying to go closer. But it never worked out. We were on a tour and I thought they would take us closer to it. But that was about as close as I got.
I had a whole plan of what I would do there. Nothing bad. I was going to film a video for Just Justin YouTube channel. I was going to do a day joke for my Social Media. But I had to go to Plan B for both of those options.
I thought that it was a pretty cool view to see it from that far back. You can see how they have opened it up so you can see the White House from afar. I think they have to do that for Marine One to land.
