All of this talk about Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall that doesn’t need to be built is nothing but grandstanding and political theater, because Trump thinks he will get re-elected if he keeps shooting his mouth off about a wall that will never be built.

But I emplore you, those of you whom support Trump and his ‘wall,’ to take a step back and really think about how silly this whole thing is. What would happen if/when we have a real emergency, like the collapse of the financial system, a natural disaster like an earthquake decimating New York City and our financial system on top of it, or a national outbreak of a deadly disease? Trump has lost all ability to effectively manage such a situation after his wall fraud, and all of us will pay a gigantic price for believing him in the first place.
