Newsweek is one source with the story at https://www.newsweek.com/white-house-fence-protests-washington-1508703 but all their pictures are from Twitter.
Somehow I don’t think this will help with Presidential approval ratings.
I’m already hearing “Mr President, tear down this wall” as Reagan said about the Berlin Wall.
Lately, I’ve been surprised that I can still be surprised by events.

Put barbed wire on top, Guard towers at the corners, and lock the gates. Let him rot in a prison of his own making.

Talk about a BIG, beautiful wall! By the time I saw it, barbed wire and glass at the top of it was gone. The East Germans had installed these slick ceramic tubes that would spin if you put a hand on top and tried to pull yourself up. They were a soothing off-white color.
Much prettier than this overgrown black cyclone fence.

The President is afraid of his people. That speaks volumes.

Does the infant president need any bumpers on the inside, so he doesn’t damage his little brain?
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

You better keep Melania and Ivanka close by in case you need to pull a Hannity and shove one of them between you and a protester.
I think you could make a moat around the White House look nice. Eric could have RC boat races in it too!

as “tRumps wall” and forever a symbol of his failure. And a reminder to other presidents what ignoring the needs of the people looks like.

The president has escalated his conflict with the people. The people don’t seem interested in invading his house or hurting him, but his paranoia makes him think they might attack him, as illustrated y his bunker inspection yesterday. As he becomes less connected to the people, he will make more threats and build more walls, which will cause him to become more isolated, which will cause him to build more walls and make more threats, and so on, and so on.

So will this mean he won’t be crossing into our country anymore?

Time to attach signs to it, such as “CAUTION – DECONSTRUCTION IN PROGRESS” or whatever your imagination can add. Place some of them with the message facing toward the White House. Use zip-ties so that it takes more effort when they remove them.
