So the Creature has announced that he is declaring a national emergency in order to build the wall. Here he is explaining what he thinks will happen next:

Add a percussion riff to that and it would almost be rap. So he’s anticipating a court fight until the SCOTUS gives him what he wants.
However, House Democrats plan to pass a joint resolution condemning the move, and the rules say the Senate has to vote on it within 18 days. Every Republican senator would have to go on record to show whether he stands with Trump or with the Constitution. I’m really looking forward to this. But watch Mitch sit on it until the 18 days are up.
If both houses of Congress pass the resolution with a supermajority vote, it’s over. And I bet that’s not impossible. The resolution would only need a majority to pass, but then of course Trump could veto it.
