Trump to Sign Budget Deal and Declare National Emergency: President Trump has agreed to sign the massive budget deal moving through Congress in time to avert an impending government shutdown, but will also declare a national emergency so he can get the additional money needed for his border wall.
Gee, that Donald Trump has really got himself a pretty decent gig. I mean, declare a national emergency - and then fly down to Mar-a-Lago to play golf for the weekend. Sounds like good work if you can get it. Wonder what he got Melania for Valentine’s day? Eh, probably a portrait of himself.
But come on, Trump just finished tweeting about how great the country’s doing under his leadership. Not to sound skeptical, but just how great can we be doing if we have to declare a national emergency? You know, love him or hate him - I think the one thing the Trump presidency has taught us is - what a dreadful, dreadful disease late-stage syphilis really is.
