  1. **No bigotry, brigading, trolling, advocating violence or being a dick.** It’ll get you banned. See the sidebar for the full version of the rules.

  2. He’s not the only one. The flip flop puts suspected Russian asset Graham in an awkward spot, having already flip flopped himself in just a matter of days, declaring the emergency ‘deferred.’

    > Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), like Trump, seems to have changing views on the national emergency declaration. On Friday, he tweeted that Trump should declare a national emergency “NOW.” On Sunday, he tweeted that emergency powers should be a “last resort” and suggested Trump reopen the government for three weeks *and then declare the emergency*. [Emphasis added.]

    Apparently, ‘last resort’ means in about three weeks, to Graham.

    The Russians need to get their talking points straight, or else they risk making their puppetry look like a bunch of clowns. Is it a Brownshirt moment, or isn’t it? If it’s truly an emergency, time is of the essence, right?

    *’If you’re listening Russia,’* please give your assets more credible talking points. You’re undermining their false authority.

  3. It’s about what he can get away with, he’s completely dependent on Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate to protect him.

    If he crosses a line and they turn on him he’ll be backed into a corner.

  4. Isn’t it obvious that if you dither and hem and haw that “maybe, possibly I will declare an emergency” you are demonstrating that there is, in fact, no emergency?
