“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!”

Published

CNN host Alisyn Camerota seemed visibly stunned on Friday morning as a Republican senator spun an elaborate conspiracy theory about Sen. Chuck Schumer by claiming the impeachment trial of Donald Trump is just a cover for the New York Democrat to make himself Senate majority leader.

Defending President  Trump, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) complained about having to watch videos of House impeachment hearing witnesses multiple times during the Senate impeachment trial, before turning his ire on Schumer.

"You know, Alisyn, what this is about -- and Chuck Schumer has been out front about it -- this isn't about removing the president. It's about Chuck Schumer trying to become the majority leader in the United States Senate," he accused. "He has targeted specific members of the Senate. He has attacked the Senate, the process, the senators [by] running commercials against them."
