“I’m here to declare a very urgent, important national emergency,” he began. “This is a big one, so I don’t want to waste any time. That’s why first I would like to blow my own horn a little bit. I had a great health exam, I’m still standing 6’7″, 185 pounds — shredded!”

“Let’s cut to the chase, folks. We need wall. Okay? We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into the country from the southern border — or the brown line as many people have asked me not to call it,” he continued.

“That’s why we need wall. Because wall works. Wall makes safe,” he argued. “You are not having to be smart to understand. In fact, it’s easier to understand if you are not that smart.”

“You can see why I have to fake this national emergency, right? I have to, because I want to. It’s really simple,” he explained.

Baldwin went on to mock Trump’s bigotry by showing the commander-in-chief do multiple impersonations of minorities.

The segment showed Trump taking questions from journalists, but not NBC, because “they suck.”

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta then asked a question.

“Oh, seriously, man, how do you keep getting in this room? I would love to build a wall around Jim,” he replied.

Acosta cited numbers showing undocumented immigrants commit crimes at lower levels than citizens.

“Those numbers are faker than this emergency,” Trump replied.

“This is a total emergency, a five-alarm blaze and I need to go to Mar-a-Lago to play some golf — and live from New York, it’s Saturday night!”

Republican lawmakers ask judge to destroy smoking gun documents proving GOP’s white supremacy

Published

Republicans on Monday sought a court order to block damning documents from being used against them in a lawsuit.

"North Carolina Republican lawmakers on Monday asked a court to make sure the files of the now-deceased GOP strategist Tom Hofeller are destroyed, or at least kept secret, instead of being used in a high-profile gerrymandering lawsuit," the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

"The filing comes after the groups behind the lawsuit, including Common Cause, accused Republican lawmakers of making false statements in court in a previous gerrymandering case, when the state’s 2011 maps were ruled unconstitutional," the newspaper noted. "That blockbuster accusation made national headlines and was, it said, based on Hofeller’s files which had been secret until recently."

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.

Media Matters for America Senior Fellow Matthew Gertz, who has previously noted that Trump appears to record news segments and watch them a few hours later, suggested that the president appeared to be reacting to an earlier segment from Special Report with Bret Baier. The segment showed that, even according to Fox News’ polling, Trump trails every single leading candidate in the Democratic field in head-to-head matchups.
