Democrats are melting down after President Trump declared a national emergency on Friday despite the fact that they had no objection when Barack Obama similarly exercised his executive power on multiple occasions during his tenure.
Following weeks of warnings about his intent to do so in order to circumvent Nancy Pelosi’s obstructionism and refusal to protect Americans, the president followed through during a rose garden announcement during which, he entertained questions from the press.
Trump’s announcement set off the predictable hysteria and cavalcade of exploding celebrity heads and lawsuits have already been filed as Dems are determined to prevent the construction of a border wall.
Some are even calling for civil insurrection by urging Americans to take to the streets in protest of Trump’s “fake” national emergency.
And when it comes to cranking up the crazy, there few who are more accomplished at ginning up mass hysteria than Rep. Maxine Waters.
The octogenarian who some believe may be the most corrupt member of Congress has a deep-seated loathing for Trump that can’t simply be explained away by partisan hostility and some might suggest that she truly hates the POTUS because of his skin color and that he serves as a convenient proxy for all white people.
Auntie Maxine issued her call to arms during Friday night’s “All In With Chris Hayes” where she inveighed against Trump and called for the resistance to take to the streets.

According to the goofy granny with the James Brown Hair.
“I really expect we’re going to have a growing number of Republicans that are going to join with us in this disapproval. Yes, they’re concerned if a Democratic president gets elected then they can use emergency powers to do a lot of the things they don’t like. As you know, they don’t believe in climate change. They don’t want us to talk about Medicare for all or any of those subjects they think we’ll spend too much government money, even though they’ve created the largest debt we’ve seen in government for many many years.”
“I’ve been talking about impeachment for a long time. I’m absolutely stunned and amazed that the American people have taken so much off of this president. This president has lied, I think it’s been documented, 8,000 times in the last two years. This president has committed obstruction of justice right before our very eyes. And if we could ever get Manafort to tell the truth, then we will find they conspired to get Trump elected so sanctions could be lifted off of Russia.
President Obama created sanctions, placed them on Russia, because of their invasion, basically in Crimea, and they can’t drill into the Arctic, do some of these things they want to do. They don’t have the equipment. Our allies are working with us to honor the sanctions, and that’s what this is all about. The Americans have taken too much off of this president. He is dishonorable. He does not deserve to be president of the United States. As a matter of fact, he loves Putin, dictators, loves Kim Jong-un, talking about they’re in love now.”
“And so it’s time for everybody to stand up. All hands on deck to refuse this president these fake emergency powers that he would like the have. And so I’m urging everybody get together —rally in every community across this country all this weekend, send a message to Washington, D.C., ‘No, Mr. President, we’re not going allow you to do this.”
This sort of dangerous rhetoric continues to be spewed by leading Democrats but especially by Waters who last summer called for attacks on members of the Trump administration in public places but absent any sort of leadership, they will continue to push the envelope since they no longer have any respect for the legitimate democratic process – only the rule of the mob.
Maybe if Waters and her ilk eventually succeed in triggering a civil insurrection then Trump can declare another national emergency to restore order but that may not turn out very well for the so-called Resistance.
