The Only Important Takeaway from Trump's National Emergency Declaration

As expected, President Trump declared a national emergency in an effort to build his wall this morning. He also answered some questions from the press, where he called on Jim Acosta even though he hates Jim Acosta because he probably knows that calling on Jim Acosta will give him the attention that he wants.

In either respect, it was mostly blather. He did basically say that, if he built a wall, all the “talented” law enforcement officials he has working on the border right now would basically be out of a job. He also said that Obama didn’t deserve a Nobel peace prize but that he does, but no one will ever give him one, although “many people” think he deserves one.

Most of it was pointless, incoherent, and hard to watch! Good times.

However, there was one important takeaway from the production. First, he knows that declaring a national emergency will invite legal challenges. He also seems to be singing(?) about the journey the case will take through the court system.

However, Trump says that he ultimately expects to win in the Supreme Court, which will basically determine whether diverting funds to build a wall constitutes an “emergency.” Is it an “emergency”? Let’s ask Trump!

Huh. So, like, “I didn’t need to call an ambulance because I could have just driven myself, but I’d rather call an ambulance so I can get to the hospital faster.” Does that sound like an emergency to anyone else? Did Trump just basically scuttle his own legal argument?

Yes, yes he did. Good luck with that case in the Supreme Court, buddy.
