Government is people, not a building. 

Let him fortify the White House and if he refuses to leave in January just seal his coward-ass in.

Let's build the new one as a pink house. Or rainbow house. Plaster it with Hello Kitty and Sailor Moon stickers.

That way it will be wholly unappealing to anyone insecure about their manhood.

darkhorse23: It's a chicken coop.


It's a baby gate.

Here's the actual short story, so you don't have to scroll halfway down the page to find it (if you can get past the paywall):

The Secret Service on Wednesday delayed the removal of the tall metal fence that has kept protesters far away from Lafayette Square and the White House for the past several days.

The more than one mile of fencing that surrounds the Ellipse, the sweeping green lawns south of the White House, will come down "on or about" Wednesday, a Secret Service spokeswoman said. That timeline does not appear to include the fencing around Lafayette Square.

"The Secret Service is in continuing discussions with the U.S. Park Police regarding the temporary security fencing in and around Lafayette Square," the spokeswoman said. She declined to provide a timeline for its removal.

On Tuesday, the National Park Service said it would remove all fencing - around the Ellipse and around Lafayette Square - by Wednesday. But the agency began hedging near the close of the day, issuing a second statement that said the fence would come down "on or about" Wednesday and noting that the Park Service was maintaining constant contact with the Secret Service.

Officials put up the fence early in the past week, shortly after police aggressively cleared a crowd of largely peaceful demonstrators from outside the square using chemical irritants and rubber bullets.
In the days since, thousands have gathered outside the square to protest. More recently, protesters converted the fencing to a crowdsourced memorial wall, filled with posters, names and paintings of black men and women who died during encounters with police.

Early Wednesday, demonstrators took down much of the art stuck to the fence. They rehung some signs on a concrete wall across the street, took some home for safekeeping and stowed some away for Smithsonian museums, which had expressed interest in preserving the protest art for the historical record.

They usually use USSS (United States Secret Service) as an acronym to prevent that from happening.

Michelle Obama says she and daughter Malia sneaked out of the White House in 2015 to see the residence bathed in rainbow lights to mark the legalization of gay marriage.

I'm  sure this is because he can hear the protestors.  He goes to the bunker to not hear them.  Because he's a thin skinned chicken shiat. . .like all conservatives.

I went back and read the story. It hit me in the feels.

"I stuck my head into the Treaty Room. 'You want to go out and look at the lights?' I asked Barack. 'There are tons of people out there.' He laughed. 'You know I can't do tons of people.'

"Sasha was in her room, engrossed in her iPad. 'You want to go see the rainbow lights with me?' I asked.

"'Nope.'

"This left Malia, who surprised me a little by immediately signing on. I'd found my wing-woman."

Obama explains that normally, they have to check in with the Secret Service agents posted by the elevator anytime they want to leave the residence, but this time they broke the rules and strode on past.

We probably need to. With what they've done to it, we'd need to be like Gene Hackman's character at the end of The Conversation.

Okay, this will seem off-topic at first, but I'm going somewhere with this.

In the 1939 The Wizard of Oz, there's a scene where the Wicked Witch of the West tells the leader of the Flying Monkeys before sending them off that she'd sent an insect to take the fight out of them. That seems to be a continuity error because there was no such scene involving an insect.

Actually, there was, but it was cut out because of time. She sent a creature known as a jitterbug, which had the power to force people nearby to sing and dance the dance known as "the Jitterbug." Dorothy and her companions were caught by the spell as they were on the Yellow Brick Road,

The footage has been found, and here it is (apologies for the poor video quality ― it's apparently from an old degraded video tape):

I showed you that Wizard of Oz "Jitterbug" song because it's the one that Randy Rainbow used as the basis of his latest gem from just three days ago:
