    The Giants destination for Monday is a government building and not a stadium.

    A protester stripped naked in front of tourists near the White House Friday afternoon.

    About 3 p.m. outside the northwest gate of the White House, a man demanded a meeting, sources told News4. When he was denied, he started taking off his clothes.

    Officers tackled the man and covered him with blankets.

    The reason for his protest is unknown. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.
