Contradicting Trump, Neighbors Say Obamas Definitely Don’t Have A ‘10-Foot Wall’

Trump “has a very active imagination,” one neighbor quipped.


After partly shutting down the government over a lack of funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall, President Donald Trump has been tweeting extensively over the holiday season in defense of the controversial structure. In one such tweet, Trump suggested that former President Barack Obama had erected a 10-foot wall around his Washington home for “safety and security.” The U.S., Trump said, “needs the same thing” — only “slightly larger.”

Neighbors of the Obamas have since refuted Trump’s claim. One neighbor, described as a longtime resident of the Kalorama neighborhood where the former first couple now lives, told The Washington Post on Monday that Trump “has a very active imagination.”
======================================================
Trump has both an overactive imagination & problems with conveying the truth. In reality, the Obama's fence is in conformity with those of their neighbors & 'was tastefully done' according to one who lives nearby. And I read recently that the fence in question was installed at the suggestion of the Secret Service who are charged with protecting the Obamas.

Everything Donald Trump says is a lie, and anyone who supports him is a retrograde moron.

Hummm... when will you left communists ever learn. It is there, but only Trump is smart enough to see it. It can only get seen by stable geniuses.

Reality is frequently inaccurate. Trump is definitive.

In actuality, Trump is mentally delusional. That explains everything about him.

I don't believe he's seen the Obama fence. It's all in his addled brain. He should pick up a copy of the WaPo - but I hear he doesn't read.

Trump claims there’s a 10-foot wall around the Obamas’ D.C. home. He is wrong.

In one of his most recent arguments for a southern border wall, President Trump on Sunday falsely claimed that the Washington home of former president Barack Obama and Michelle Obama is surrounded by a 10-foot wall.

Trump’s tweet comes in the midst of a partial government shutdown, which was spurred Dec. 22 by Trump’s demand for $5 billion in funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall. He alleged that the “wall” around the Obamas' mansion was necessary for the former first couple’s “safety and security,” adding that the United States needs a “slightly larger version!”

Perhaps if others have convinced Trump Obama has a wall, they can convince him that we've already built a wall along the border?

The really stunning thing about Trump and his lies and delusions is he could in all likelyhood pass a lie detector test about every one of them. He truly believes his dark fantasy of the moment even if he changes it minutes later.

Now Obama's building a wall! Workers put the finishing touches to a brick barrier around $5million DC mansion where Barack, Michelle and Sasha will live after leaving the White House

Renovations have been ongoing at the property since it was revealed the First Family will soon be moving in
A crew of workers was hard at work on Friday morning building a brick wall at the front edge of the property
The Obamas are staying in DC so 15-year-old Sasha can finish out high school at the Sidwell Friends School

President Obama is no fan of President-elect Trump’s plan to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexican border, but he is reportedly building a wall around his new digs in an upscale Washington, D.C., neighborhood in the same general area where the new president’s daughter and her family will reside.

Well, if the picture is current, it appears that the fence is about 10' tall but so what? Could be 20' or 30' because it's not like it was to stop someone from climbing over, that's the job of the secret service stationed on the other side. Point being, they have a wall and armed guards to protect their domain yet gripe about a wall to help protect Americas security. Fine, build a wall just like that on the border and place armed guards every 500' with the same authority to protect America that the secret service has to protect the Obamas.

Did he say he would get us out of that booby trap of a deal, the Paris Accords, was that a lie, Kob? Did he say he would dash the debacle known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action more commonly called the Iran nuclear deal or Iran deal? Lie about that did he, Kob.? Lie about putting more conservative Justices on the SC bench, Kob?

You obliviously don't have a clue, never have had about anything Trump or for that matter... trying to think of an instance where you might have had a clue, nothing is jumping out at me right off the top of my head, however.

Ah, but that the antiTrumpers could reach such heights... acrophobia maybe, vertigo? Just plain old-fashioned stupidity on the part of the antiTrumpers?

You folks cannot win, you have been dealt a losing hand, all jokers.

Another neighbor said the Obamas' home is “100 percent visible from the street.” “There is no 10-foot wall in the front, back or sides of the house — and no wall is going up,” the person said.

Trump - The gift that keeps on giving.

This actually ties in perfectly with the whattaboutism thread someone started (to blame whattaboutisms exclusively on "the left", but whatever).

Let's just assume someone has a wall around their property. Anyone who thinks it makes some kind of sense to compare that with proposing a 2,000+ mile long idiotic wall as national policy along a border, a wall that would only do anything if it basically had a standing army deployed along its length, for purposes of calling anyone on the left a "hypocrite" should be laughed out of the room, out of the country, and preferably off the planet.

It's a perfect example of pretending to completely unalike things are the same to support some irrelevancy.

Our bigger problem is Trump’s audience. We are not talking about a group of people all that interested in what is really happening, nor will they do much other than go to right wing commentary sites that will validate the story (look above at post #10.)

Trump's vision of a wall is changing so fast that it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Trump supporters argued that the fence Obama has is their own vision of a wall.

Obama would be insane to not to have a wall to protect his family from Trump cultists, QAnon, religious racists and "patriotic" morans.

Show us a living former president who lives out here with real Americans.

On the other hand we have moralist Donald J. "Stable Genius, Cadet Bone Spurs, Individual-1, Mr. Ranty" Trump who actually is in fact insane.

That wall is fierce, isn't it? A 3' wall with 10' columns. Should be able to keep out toddlers, maybe some small dogs.

The stupid **** people feel they have to argue about.

OF COURSE they built a wall around Obama's new home. There are security requirements in protecting former presidents. So yes...they built walls around the property.
