Maybe Donald Trump believes that he can control all of the Republicans at once by Tweet. He appears to be trying to do so. In the past, one negative tweet could take out a senator, which is probably why the GOP is so subservient to POTUS. When the president tries to manipulate the Democrats via tweet, they just go “yeah, yeah” and move on. Check out the commander-in-chief attempting his gravity-defying mind control tweets now.
Of course, most of the Democrats think that Trump’s fake national emergency is just a joke. First of all, to be an emergency, an event must be timely, and his wall fetish has been going on for years. Secondly, everyone knows that a wall is useless, because people can go over it — sometimes in airplanes, under it, through it, and around it — say by boats.
Trump tweeted out his threat to the Republican senators. If they vote for the halt to Trump’s national emergency wall, the president will say they are like the Dems, “for open borders and crime:”
‘Democrats will have a unanimous vote on a 20% issue in opposing Republican Senators tomorrow. The Dems are for Open Borders and Crime!’
Then, Trump got really serious. He tweeted that the “Republican senators are “overthinking (sic)” the upcoming vote:
‘Republican Senators are overthinking tomorrow’s vote on National Emergency. It is very simply Border Security/No Crime – Should not be thought of any other way. We have a MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY at our Border and the People of our Country know it very well!’
Even the Secretary of Border Security Kirstjen Nielsen had to admit that most of the drugs come through the current, legal border crossings. The Democrats nailed her on that one in a recent hearing.
Tomorrow should be interesting. Maybe the great Trump remote control experiment of controlling all of the Republican senators will work. Maybe it will not.
