Secret Service Blocks UK Press From Entering White House

Blimey! British journalists were stymied from entering the White House on Friday because of the unfamiliar formats of their birthdays.

Unlike in the US, where the month appears ahead of the day and year, the dates across the pond are written with the day first, followed by the month and then year.

“White House press officer just told me off on the phone for laughing when they told me about not knowing British date formats were different,” reporter Ned Donovan of Mail on Sunday tweeted.

The mix-up occurred about an hour before British Prime Minister Theresa May was ready to take part in a White House press conference with President Trump, The Hill reported.

It was not immediately clear how the issue had been resolved.
