This just in: Burglars take Jenna Bush Hager's bikes

It can happen to anyone: Henry and Jenna at a Washington party last month. (Vicky Pompo)

  • Jenna Bush Hager and her husband, Henry, lost two mountain bikes worth $3,500 in a break-in at their South Baltimore home Friday, police told the Baltimore Sun. The couple originally had Secret Service protection when they moved in two years ago (an agency van was infamously ticketed and towed from outside their place last year) but no longer; police said there's nothing to indicate the robbers knew whom they ripped off.

    Conspicuous consumption. Dilettantes, with high priced toys. Sorry they got robbed, but, seriously who needs $1,700 bicycles. . . in Baltimore?

    That's why I do not live in Baltimore. Fun to visit the Inner Harbor and Federal Hill. Other than that -- the city needs a lot of work to turn it around. Starting with all-day schools for the city youth whose parents don't know how to be parents.

    It may sound like a lot, but a $1,700 bike is not actually that much to pay. Admittedly, it does get you a nice bike . . .

    Baltimore is not the place to start a family. And to live in Maryland of all places.. Its full of Socialist. Jenna needs to relocate to Virginia.

    Now did they actually pay the $3,500 for the bikes, or were they a "gift" and are just claiming they were "worth" that amount?

    This will not stand. I think we should unilaterally invade Baltimore, seize all their oil and find the culprits.

    What an intelligent response AlbyVA. I hope that message isn't an indicater of the public school systems in VA. Let me guess. Judging from your ill-informed words and lack of grammar,you probably live in a VA armpit like Culpeper,Fredricksburg or Winchester. I moved to Baltimore City 10 years ago, and haven't even thought of moving back to the D.C. area. Baltimore City is a real treasure to those who choose to take a few steps out of our comfort zones and discover it's hidden gems. To those who only know Baltimore from Fed Hill, Canton, Fells Point and the Wire; do me a favor and stay where you are. Please shut your mouth regarding what you do not know.

    Baltimore is a rough town no matter where you live, I hope they can turn it around, I actually like Baltimore, if wasn't for the rampant crime I'd like to live there.

    This is news? Gold digger daughter of worst President ever has overpriced bikes stolen?

    You "this is news?" people do understand that this article is in the Reliable Source, which is a distinct section of the Post that openly advertises itself as a gossip column, don't you? See right at the top, it even says "gossip?" What are you doing reading a gossip column if you're that concerned about what is or is not news?

    How did everyone resist citing the contrast to the more modest reported value of the bikes ($300) recently stolen from the Fenty's residence?
