Of course, it was just the first actual write up I could find for the obvious horse**** talking point that the tax cuts paid for themselves. Republicans can spend trillions of dollars and nobody gives a **** but AOC talks about spending money and the media ****s its pants asking her where it's going to come from.

I posted an article in the thread about it yesterday. It's true. It's ****ed up. He can even freeze bank accounts for anyone he assumes is helping refugees. He can also declare martial law in sanctuary cities where the police refuse to do ICE's work.

Yeah he can pretty much take over the media, the internet, declare martial law, whatever

Our government is based on congress checking the president but doesn’t really do much to protect us if one group gets president and one branch of congress and wants to go rogue together

The other reason it's a problem is ~40% of the country actually wants him to do it.

The dopes in OOT would erase AOC's votes and claim the president declared a national disaster if they could.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

If I was an "Iowan", I'd be pretty upset that one of my Senators assumed I was so simple that the President would need to dumb down his speech so I could have a shot at understanding it.

Lol, just kidding no I wouldn't.

He probably meant it more in terms of not sounding like a smarmy ****, which he's similarly incapable of.

That Stetler tweet is also a nice reminder that media executives rank their fear of being criticized by conservatives as equally important to giving factual information to the public.

People need to stop hanging on every word he says, every tweet, every lie and just ignore the bull****. This speech is going to be a bunch of bull**** and lies about how immigrants are raping and pillaging the country. He feeds off of all the attention and it just gives him more power. So don't watch it, don't talk about it, just ignore it.
