Good luck getting your money, ya farkin chump.

What a twat.
2019-02-14 03:24:07 PM  
Definitely a ground breaking president.

First fake emergency declaration in the history of the republic.
2019-02-14 03:24:19 PM  
Good luck with that, asshole.

Just at the border? What about 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?
2019-02-14 03:24:27 PM  
We have a national emergency, alright, and his name is Donald Trump.
2019-02-14 03:24:42 PM  
How about no? Does no work for you?

We're living in a reality show... DRINK!

President Harris thanks you from 2021 for giving her the precedent to declare national emergencies on climate change and health care.

We all saw this coming. Not really a surprise there. Then it can be blocked in court and Trump can blame the deep state for blocking his wall and he can move on to the zillions of other things for awhile.

/Then we'll hear about the wall again when his poll numbers tick down a bit.
2019-02-14 03:25:22 PM  
"Despite a 35-day government shutdown over $5.7 billion for a border wall, the president came out with a worse deal than he would have gotten if he had backed the funding bill that lawmakers from both parties agreed to last June as part of the normal appropriations process."

Art of the Deal!
2019-02-14 03:25:27 PM  
ZOMG!! Panic!
2019-02-14 03:25:30 PM  
So no wall. And "emergency" measures that will get tied up in court.

He Makes "incompetent" look smrt.
2019-02-14 03:25:36 PM  
Your building tenants are removing your name. You're not getting the wall. And Nixon wasn't buried at Arlington. Get used to it, asshole.
2019-02-14 03:25:40 PM  
This in no way will come back to bite them in the ass.
2019-02-14 03:25:41 PM  

Strap in, y'all. This is going to get...interesting.
2019-02-14 03:25:42 PM  
No way this is going to come back to bite the GOP in the ass.
2019-02-14 03:25:42 PM  
This should backfire spectacularly, get some popcorn ready.
2019-02-14 03:25:46 PM  
Didn't he literally just pull troops from the border, or am I just thinking of my liberal hellhole California?

And McConnell said he will support Trump's declaration, after saying multiple times he thinks it's a bad idea and bad precedent.  I don't know why that Olympic-level asshole still surprises me yet here we are.

He must know the declaration will fail miserably in court and just wants to shut Cheeto Dick up and play to the base.

Fark McConnell
Fark Trump
Fark the modern Republican party and anyone who still supports these assholes

This is not how you use the Why Not Both meme.
2019-02-14 03:26:05 PM  
This is best thing for the country. Now, it'll be tied up in the courts for the next decade. Trump will be long dead before it's decided.
2019-02-14 03:26:06 PM  
Last spring, he could have gotten a budget deal and gotten $23 billion for his wall.  Then in December, he could have gotten $1.7 Billion for his wall.  Now he gets $1.375 billion for 55 miles of fencing.  He truly is the greatest negotiator!

I hope the court smacks his ass down hard for this BS national emergency declaration.

How many times has Trump played golf as President of the United States? Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Mr. Trump has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses or played golf elsewhere 169 times since becoming President, and that's as of Feb. 3, 2019.

And I bet he was terrified each and every time, due to the "emergency".

Magruda: This in no way will come back to bite them in the ass.

2019-02-14 03:26:23 PM  
I don't care anymore. Stubborn assholes on both sides as far as the eye can see.
2019-02-14 03:26:27 PM  
National Emergency declares that something else is an emergency that is not.

Good luck with that. Already proven that Congress will slap his peepee if he does.

Turtle said it. I now doubt the existence of my own nation.

Oh, also this. I look forward to our next Democratic President using this precedent to actually deal with issues like Climate Change and the like.

I'm also frustrated with NBA officiating but this is a bit of an overreaction.
2019-02-14 03:26:56 PM  
Ambiguous headline is ambiguous:

Is it the Emergency Declaration or the Mania that is unnecessary?

So, he's f*cking him twice. Good job, Donnie, if it wasn't already done before, you've likely sealed your fate in 2020.
2019-02-14 03:27:23 PM  
A critical, super-important, dangerous, panic-worthy NATIONAL EMERGENCY 2 months in the making.

Man, this stuff really sneaks up on you.

I saw this movie... now we will send in a secret military team led by Willem Dafoe to kill drug lords with cellulose encased laser guided bombs?

Enjoy the next two years of court driven drama.

In the extremely unlikely case this starts to move forward....well USA, enjoy your Spruce Goose.
