    Trump is insane, and needs to be removed from office. If Republicans do this, they'll still have Pence in place. What are they waiting for, World War III?

  • SJC

    Trump paints himself into a corner in an oval office...hilarious!

  • foldincaulfield

    There's a national emergency alright, but it's not at the southern border. It's at the border between Trump's mind and reality.

  • Laney D.

    Somebody get rid of this twisted moron. When trump denies something, it's obviously true.

  • inonepeice

    Trump's emergency at the border is a HOAX!!

    The Government employees must get sick days, Right?
    Couldn't they all just call off sick and get paid for their sick days?
    If they all call off, I'm certain that Donald, Sarah, and KellyAnne could run the whole show by themselves.

    This the incompetence level that Trump has, combined with his irrational, erratic, narcissistic behavior, people need to understand that he is already a huge danger to this nation and if anything, he needs less power, not more.

    Graham is as plastic as Hillary is. GOP is the party of hypocritical morons.

    Quote from above "This fight, as so many do, comes down to power. The president wants more of it". It is the Emergency Powers Act, it ALREADY EXISTS and has been used 59 times, including by Obama and Clinton, he isn't asking for MORE power, he already has it.

    Trump,the dictator, will not stop,until he is stopped.

    The headline needs to read:
    "Trump wants more power.The Republican Senate is ok with that.The House wants him to have less."

  • Sharon Vaughn

    Trump would like nothing better than to have complete power over the government much like Putin, Salman, Duterte, an other dictators he admires so very much. This wall he's demanding is a vanity monument and will only prove to become Trump's folly.

  • JonnyDeuce

    Trump needs no more power. He shouldn't have any at all. Like his money, he can't manage the power he has.

  • mollydtt

    The Trump bus eventually runs over everyone but Trump and the Trump mafia. Just lay down and accept the inevitable.

  • Anthony

    Congress will give Trump nothing while Trump holds his own government and 800,000 federal workers hostage.

    Trump knows that it is the end of his presidency if he does not get the wall. Well, to paraphrase Pence,

    No Wall, No Trump.

    The Russians have a saying for this—“Repetition is the mother of learning”. Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat....

  • KatsMind

    Please Mr Mueller, please. This corrupt political operative of Putin needs to be stopped.

  • WorkingClass

    The right would welcome a dictatorship as long as they believe he's on their side. Guess what? He's not!

  • What?

    Please Bernie - Stay home! Nader did enough damage (previously).

  • notagain

    Allow Trump more power and you might as well start calling him by his correct title. Dictator.

  • JuPMod

    Of course Trump wants more power. That Time magazine cover is becoming true more every day, given Trump sees himself as 'King of America' so he would do what he can to make that close to reality as possible. He does not care to compromise, for he wants everything done his way, no matter what. He's now finding out his vision is not how the American government works, and if he does not like it, tough luck to him.

    Mr. Klein needs to understand the difference between opinion and fact.

  • Erwin Schrodinger

    Trump is creeping toward megalomania... and the GOP just sits there on their hands.

    Caption with picture should read: "US Border Patrol brownshirt tours the border with known racketeer Donald Trump. The Border Patrol renews its vow to follow Trump without pay." Here's where sycophants get us, the complete abandonment of our form of government and our humanity to please the dregs of society and Ann Coulter.
