Even if you don’t know his name, you probably know who Sabo is — he’s the right-wing street artist who plastered “Obama Drone” posters featuring Gwyneth Paltrow all over her neighborhood earlier this month right before Obama’s fundraiser was held at the actress’ house. I honestly don’t know much else about Sabo, other than he has a cool website and he isn’t afraid to speak his mind.
Well now he’s making headlines again. This time, it’s due to the fact that allegedly the Secret Service paid him a visit, and he uploaded the interview on YouTube for the world to see.
The back story is that a few of Sabo’s anti-Obama tweets caught the attention of the Secret Service. Tweets like these:
DEAR GOD! I PRAY YOU MAKE ZOMBIES REAL AND THE FIRST ONE I HOPE REANIMATES IS OSWALD. :) – THANK YOU GOD.

A MESSAGE TO THE SECRET SERVICE. I HAVE $10,000 IN HAND WHICH I WILL USE BUY A MONTH OF COLUMBIAN HOOKERS FOR YOU TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY.

IT REALLY WOULD BE A CRYING SHAME IF SOMEONE CALLED TO REPORT A MAN WITH A RIFLE IN THE AREA ON THIS NIGHT. pic.twitter.com/lpgsYNAkHQ

What happened next is this was left on Sabo’s door:
LADIES AND GENTS THE SECRET SERVICE JUST PAID A VISIT TO MY PLACE. pic.twitter.com/ldKr3bj4ra

The artist says that he called the agent back and scheduled a meeting at his home for Wednesday morning. The conversation apparently went like this…
I’m not sure what the best part of the interview was. It was either the fact that Sabo was painting Obama toilet seats while he was talking to the Secret Service, or that he was brave enough to spout off this line: “I realize we have a fuckhead in the White House. And the constitution no longer means shit. As far as I’m concerned, this is a First Amendment issue.”
According to The Blaze, “The Secret Service has confirmed that they interviewed Sabo, though they would not provide additional information about the visit.” If the video isn’t fake, it’s totally hilarious. I have no reason to think those guys weren’t really Secret Service, but some people on Twitter are doubting Sabo’s story.
Personally, I can’t wait to see what Sabo does next. Hopefully he doesn’t get stifled now that he has the Secret Service watching him.
