Climbing over the Trump Wall

1. Manu Raju is a senior congressional correspondent at CNN, covering Capitol Hill and campaign politics. The following are excerpts from a December 12, 2018 news report by Manu Raju and Caroline Kelly (CNN breaking news reporter) under the headline "Pelosi questions Trump's manhood, compares him to skunk after border wall meeting".

(Begin excerpts)
(CNN)House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi privately questioned President Donald Trump's "manhood" after a contentious meeting Tuesday about funding his wall at the southern border.

"It's like a manhood thing for him," Pelosi told Democratic members at a closed meeting of the Steering and Policy Committee on Capitol Hill, according to an aide in the room. "As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing."

Pelosi, in a feisty mood after the heated exchange with the President, also compared the President to a skunk.

"I was trying to be the mom," the California Democrat said, according to the aide. "I can't explain it to you. It was so wild. It goes to show you: You get into a tickle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you."....

"The fact is we did get him to say, to fully own that the shutdown was his," she said to applause, according to the aide. "That was an accomplishment.".... (End excerpts)


2. With regard to Pelosi mocking Trump’s fragile masculinity, I humorously coin the expression "climbing over the Trump Wall" to mean "reaching adulthood". The following examples show the use of the new expression.

(a) In Greek mythology, the mountain Pelion was held to be the home of the centaurs. When the twins Otus and Ephialtes waged war against the Olympian gods, they tried to pile Mount Pelion upon Mount Ossa in order to storm heaven itself. Had they climbed over the Trump Wall, their attempt would have been successful, but Apollo destroyed them before their beards began to grow.

(b) Having gone through their trials and tribulations, one should not question those who had survived the Vietnam War (whether they had been captured or seriously injured) that they had yet to climb over the Trump Wall.

(c) If the Trump Wall could ever be built, don't arrest or fire at those Latin Americans who try to climb over it every year because it is just a once-in-a-lifetime ritual for them climb from adolescence over the Trump Wall.

To deport those who have climbed over Trump Wall is an act against God or Nature, that is, to turn the clock back to adolescence.
