All hail our lord and savior Donald I wish I was a dictator Trump.

I doubt the Supreme Court will support this, but if they do it will be funny to watch Republicans/Conservatives squirm when the next Democrat is elected as President.

Side note: Republicans were in an uproar that Obama was going to do this sort of thing, but he never did.

But on a realistic note:

The likelihood of law suits blocking Trump's emergency is probably 100%.

There will be a lot of plaintiffs... probably ranging from Corporations (both for profit and non-profits) to the Democrats to various groups and individual citizens to individual states.

It all depends on which and how many government programs are impacted and which civilian entities are impacted... etc.

It is likely that most if not all of these suites will out last Trump's term of office, especially if the various plaintiff spread out their law suites over 12 to 18 months in various parts of the country.

If Trump is not re-elected, the next president will most likely drop the case.

In spite of what McConnell says, Congress could block the redirecting of allocated funds...they probably will have to do this with some programs.

Even if Trump is re-elected, it won't be a done deal.

What "it" will really do is divide Americans more.

In addition, our economy is presently vulnerable... this could easily tip the proverbial scale.

Regardless of all that we can be certain of one thing: Putin is probably very happy.

Orange is behind the curve in declaring national emergencies.

OK yes it’s a dumb trick but at least for now he still more hesitant than either 43 or black.

"More hesitant"?

About what... grabbing pussy? Refusing to negotiate with Congress? Inventing fake emergencies? Claiming that he is the best at everything? Insulting decorated war heroes? Playing golf?

What exactly is he "more hesitant" about?

No worries... I know that you won't answer... mostly because you don't have an answer... but that is ok...

ALL HAIL OUR LORD AND SAVIOR DONALD "JESUS CHRIST" TRUMP

Didn't you once state that western civilization was dying?

Hmmm... maybe not... I mean maybe that was another person.

Oh well

Never mind.
