The security guard whose shared elevator ride with President Barack Obama while carrying a gun sparked controversy and led to his firing said in a new interview that the ride and events that followed have ruined his life.
“This was unjust and has been a nightmare,” Kenneth Tate told the New York Times. “I’ve tried to rationalize it. It won’t go away.”
