Trump's a master wall builder; watch him stonewall

Donald Trump already has his wall but itís not concrete or steel slats or anything else. Itís made of stone.

This stonewall doesnít run along our southern border from sea to shining sea, but encircles his White House, runs up and down Pennsylvania and Constitution Avenues, around Foggy Bottom and all Der Furorís other outposts. And Mexico isnít paying for it, we are, every day, in a commodity more precious than gold: truth.

Itís a fact Trumpís stonewall works ó keeping Congress, the media, and Americans, not migrants, out; and truth, facts and open government locked up.

Yes, gentle reader, when it comes to stonewalling, this administration has no equivalent in American history.

(There is a small crack in his wall. More about that later.)

Letís first examine some examples of Trumpís stonewalling as my strict, but kindly editor, wonít give me the 5,000 or 6,000 words needed to detail all Trumpís stonewalls.

To begin, Sarah Sanders, Trumpís press secretary, is the keystone in the White Houseís stonewall; and sheís elevated bricklaying to a high art. Her main tool: canceling press conferences, press briefings and even gaggles (on Trumpís say so). The easiest way not to answer questions from the free press: donít take them. So she doesnít.

Government agencies such as the EPA or Health and Human Services or Homeland Security also stonewall: Congressional committees, legislators, public interest groups and the press. The tactic works for Sarah and it works for them.
