Trump Declares A National Emergency

Posted on Feb 15, 2019

Per the New York Times:

In a televised announcement in the Rose Garden, Mr. Trump said he was signing the declaration to protect the country from the flow of drugs, criminals and illegal immigrants coming across the southwestern border from Mexico, which he characterized as a profound threat to national security.

Does this mean I can stop work for the day?

Seriously, though, this is the ultimate abuse of office—the sort of thing that turns a republic into an empire.
