Internet ridicules Trump's 4th of July Mall fencing that will keep his VIP pals in 'cages': 'Poetic justice'
Fence across reflecting pool (Will Sommer/Twitter)

President Donald Trump will deliver a Fourth of July speech from the Lincoln Memorial -- separated from most of the crowd by chain-link fence hastily set up across the monument's reflecting pool.


The areas closest to the president will be accessible only to friends, family and donors, leaving the president's MAGA-hat wearing supporters far away from the tanks that he requested as a show of power.

Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer posted photos of the fence, and the distance away from the president they'll keep non-ticket-holders, and other Twitter users noticed some highly symbolic details about the images.
