I hate that I “liked” your comment, but I couldn’t help it…

Dear GOP Legislator-

In less than two years time you will fully and wholly come to regret creating this very low bar ‘National Emergency’ precedent contrary to the written law.

Climate Change
Healthcare
Gun Violence

If this is all it takes to side-step a potential republican congress then we will apply this new standard to critical issues that result in thousands of verifiable American deaths.

I **** you not.

What national emergency?

They’re banking on one of two things:

One, never being in the minority again

Two, the Democrats being run by the likes of Harry Reid rather than AOC.

Off to the Courts… and don’t believe the hype that Trump can do this… He can’t, and we are likely to end up with either (a) this found not to be an “emergency” under the act, (b) his use of funds illegal, even if he can declare an emergency, or © the National Emergency Act declared unconstitutional - as applied in this case - assuming as is almost certain, both houses vote to overturn his emergency declaration (i.e. that the cession of authority is not valid if Trump can veto it, in the light of a refusal of congress to act, and actually acting contrary to what Trump wants).

P.s. its fun to check out George Conway’s (Mr. Kelly Ann Conway) twitter feed at a time like this: https://twitter.com/gtconway3d

The one where he declares it and promptly debarks for Mar a Lago to play golf. He hasn’t been there for weeks - emergency!

Death is too good for Trump. A prison cell is best, since torture is un-American.

I am guessing that Pelosi, et.al., are way ahead of Trump on this. They have gamed it out. Trump just effed up (again), but this time, it will really cost him.

You didn’t let me finish my fantasy!

It’ll happen in a helicopter. And his whole family will be there. And the cause of death will be officially listed as “pilot error”.

So… as near as I can tell, there was a rambling presser with severe mass/count noun confusion (the articles where are all the articles!) and a greatest lie montage, but no actual declaration?

Also, has he signed the continuing resolution yet?

Today would be a fantastic day for Mueller to drop some indictments.

So I didn’t watch any of that stream of bullshit, but Twitter seems to think dotard was absolutely fucking wacko squirrel-shit crazy, even by his usual astonishingly low standards.

Please accurately fact check each rationalization the president used to justify his action and report these to the public, whether his statements are supported or not by facts. The citizens of these United States deserve and require nothing less. Accountability in the real world means something.
