“Kill kill kill.”
President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday to circumvent Congressional opposition and gain $8 billion to begin his long-promised southern border wall.
The White House is bracing for legal challenges, as opponents are bound to dispute the constitutionality of the move.
“I am going to be signing a national emergency,” Trump declared at an improvised Rose Garden address, citing the “invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people” as the catalyst for his announcement.
Moments before the announcement, Trump signed into law a border deal struck by Congress, which did not include funding for a physical barrier.
Afflicted with incurable Trump Derangement Syndrome, many on the left couldn’t help but see Trump’s announcement as, yet again, the beginning of tyranny.
Trump is a monster. His fear mongering and fake emergency claim is an attempt to scare people. Making people believe they need to fear for their safety gives him a way to consolidate power. #trump #FakeTrumpEmergency

Or at least the end of democracy.
It seems to me that if the Emergency Declaration stands then the next election is about which candidate would we prefer as our autocratic leader.

Others just wanted to get the president’s voice out of their head.
OMG, why are you rambling on about the same thing over and over again. I can't believe you're calling a natural emergency declaration for a wall

“Kill kill kill,” suggested one Twitter user as perhaps a possible solution.

Another trend among the panicked seemed to be an attempt to locate the real “national emergency.” Guns, said Rep. Lucy McBath, a Georgia Democrat.

Climate change and healthcare, said Alyssa Milano.
Maybe no one has told you, but declaring a National Emergency for a wall sets a precedent that future Presidents can declare a National Emergency for:
All of which are more pressing and dire than your weird wall.

Comedian Ben Gleib found the emergency, where else, at Trump’s inauguration.
There actually is a national emergency. It started on trump’s Inauguration Day

And he was not alone.
The only emergency is why we haven’t enacted the 25th Amendment yet and how a monster surviving on the few shreds of brain matter the syphilis hasn’t rotted yet is still President.
