Hollywood stars melted down Friday after President Donald Trump announced he was declaring a national emergency over border security, with celebrities deciding that the real emergency is Trump.
“You can’t declare a ‘national emergency’ when you ARE the national emergency,” left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore said.

“We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our border,” Trump said Friday. “I’m going to be signing a national emergency, and it’s been signed many times before…there’s rarely been a problem.”
Trump explained that he is using a national emergency to build a southern border wall faster.
"I could do the wall over a longer period of time," Pres. Trump says.

“I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster,” he said.
Rosie O’Donnell urged the establishment media to not cover Trump’s “lies.”

Bette Midler chimed in, “Another distraction and another example of utter failure of leadership…shut down the Government? He’s going to shut down the country. But will Putin send the plane??”

By declaring a non-existent national emergency, The Pathological Liar is once again facilitating the slow erosion of Democracy. We must never allow his childish temper tantrum attempts at authoritarianism to become normalized. Keep fighting to preserve US!

Hannity, Coulter, Limbaugh, and others of their ilk must be happy. They've finally got a chump they can push around.

Trump is in the Rose Garden praising the death penalty + how much money we’ll make in a trade deal in the same breath.
This man is terrifying.
Please stand up for compassion, fairness + humanity whenever you can, as Americans we must set the example that he does not speak for us

If Trump can declare a “national emergency” get his wall funding, what’s to stop me from making the US women’s Olympic speed skating team record all their farts & email them to me when I’m president?

. @realDonaldTrump is behaving more and more like a dictator. #ThisIsAmerica #WeThePeople are disgusted with this senseless act.
The irony of taking money from drug interdiction is just too much.
