Trump Is a Big Cowardly Wuss, Illustrated

Of course the candy ass weenie had more fencing installed around the White House. Notice the concrete barricades, too.

Lyndon Johnson certainly wasn’t that big a weenie.

It’s not like the old antiwar protests in Washington weren’t impressive.

Even the eternally disgraced Richard Nixon wasn’t that big a wuss.

Hundreds of thousands of angry young Americans descended on nation’s capitol on May 12, 1970 to protest U.S. involvement in Indochina and the Kent State University shootings earlier in the week.

A lesser weenie, Ronald Reagan, in 1983 had three-foot-high concrete barricades placed at the northwest and southwest entrances to the White House grounds after slaughter of Marines in their barracks in Lebanon. I don’t have a photo. After that it became common to put up concrete barriers at entry points during security alerts, such as after the September 11 attacks.

There were some sizable protests at the White House during the Bush II Administration. I’m not seeing extra fencing.

  1. He should renamed the White House…Wolf's Liar. Or better yet,the Big Bag of Shit's Lair.

    As depressing as it is to see a bunker mentality engulfing the White House,  the barricade is also a good thing in a sense because it stands as a beacon before the world that openly shows the separation of a freedom loving people who seek after justice and the current occupant of the White House.

     "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

  2. Well chosen quotation, Swami!

    When Trump's childish, phony aspect comes into view,  which is to say, daily, there's a relatively mild scene that comes to mind.  It's one where he jumps into the driver's seat of a fire truck, grasps the wheel, and starts making engine noises.  For all the world, he truly seemed like an eight year old playing with race cars.  The first thought that came to my mind was that he had probably never even tried to drive a car in his whole sheltered life, yet here he was behind the wheel of a large powerful vehicle that required a lot of skill to manage, pretending that he could master it.

    Any metaphorical similarity is purely coincidental, and also eclipsed by far more sickening moments. 

    • snow_watcher: Please see With White House effectively a fortress, some see Trump’s strength — but others see weakness. It shows exactly what’s been put up this week.

      The security perimeter around the White House keeps expanding. Tall black fencing is going up seemingly by the hour. Armed guards and sharpshooters and combat troops are omnipresent.

      In the 72 hours since Monday’s melee at Lafayette Square, the White House has been transformed into a veritable fortress — the physical manifestation of President Trump’s vision of law-and-order “domination” over the millions of Americans who have taken to the streets to protest racial injustice.

      The White House is now so heavily fortified that it resembles the monarchical palaces or authoritarian compounds of regimes in faraway lands — strikingly incongruous with the historic role of the executive mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, which since its cornerstone was laid in 1792 has been known as the People’s House and celebrated as an accessible symbol of American democracy.

      From the Washington Post.

      • Thanks. I no longer have adequate words to describe what's happening to us. I read and appreciate your perspectives daily.

        To expand on the incongruity described in the WP article, from the VOA article (and this contrast is just for the new, previously approved fencing unrelated to whatever monstrosity is being hastily erected now):

        The new enclosure is a far cry from the very first White House fence, which was made of wood and erected by Thomas Jefferson in the early 1800s. A few years later, he replaced the wooden fence with a stone wall. By 1819, portions of the fence were made of iron. Sections of today’s fence date back to around 1830.

        The early fences were designed to keep out animals, not people. Visitors often freely roamed the White House grounds. 

        “It was relatively easy to get inside and go upstairs to the second floor. That's where the president worked before the West Wing was built,” says Matthew Costello of the White House Historical Association. “So, you can imagine the president trying to get work done and just being besieged by office seekers, lobbyists, all types of people who would essentially stand out in the hallway and hope to get a quick meeting with the president or catch a glimpse of the president.” 

  3. I prefer to look at it as if WE'RE fencing that amoral monster IN!

    Bunker Boy's Baby Gate!

    So, instead if Obamagate, we get Babygate!


    In the word of that great American philosopher, Bugs Bunny:  What a dope!  What a MAROON!!!

    Does anyone know if  IT's toilet-trained yet?

    74's a bit old for making poopy in you pants, don't you think? 

    Unless he's wearing Depends, which would at least be age-appropriate.  But he's so full of shit, they'd have to be changed every half-hour!  



  4. Actually, Nixon had buses encircling the White House at the height of the anti-war protests after the invasion of Cambodia Kenta State.
