If this had been an actual emergency, a real president would not have DONE NOTHING FOR TWO YEARS while his party controlled all branches of government, then another five weeks of a shutdown, and another three weeks to negotiate a deal and then, failing that, declared a fake “national emergency” using a power delegated from Congress to take an action Congress had prohibited (thus violating the Constitution), and then admitted on national TV that he “didn’t need to do that” but wanted “faster results” (as Stephen Colbert parodied: “Hello 9-1-1, please send an ambulance to get to the movie theater. I didn’t really need it, but I wanted to go faster than an Uber”), and then gone to play golf for the weekend.
Oh, for an “emergency” that ALL heads of his intelligence agencies (that he appointed) refuted, and for which all indications show improving, not getting worse (illegal border crossings down every year for the past ten years straight now at the lowest number in 46 years).
FAKE “EMERGENCY”; the real threat is in the Oval Office. On days when he’s not golfing or arranging “play dates” with porn stars or Playboy nude models at $130,000 a pop.
