I’m not sure everyone got this. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just sent Donald Trump one of the most thinly veiled threats in the history of American politics:

“A Democratic president can declare emergencies, as well” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.”
Pelosi noted that Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 students and faculty dead. She argued that the real national emergency is not illegal border crossings, but gun violence in the U.S.
“Let’s talk about today: The one-year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America,” Pelosi said. “That’s a national emergency. Why don’t you declare that emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would.”
“But a Democratic president can do that.”

Chew on that, Republicans. Oh, wait.. some already have:

Doug Heye, a Republican strategist and former aide to former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), sounded a similar warning on Thursday, moments after the White House announcement.
“Make no mistake: the next Democratic President will declare national emergencies on guns and climate change and cite the Trump precedent when doing so,” Heye tweeted.

Pandora has a big box in front of her, right now.

I cannot believe, that with ALL!, the evidence both houses have, this discusting individual is not being impeached or removed from the WH. What are they waiting for the start of another war in the middle east!, riots in the streets, the collapes of the USA into a banana republic,????
