Trump's national emergency sparks PROTESTS - FURIOUS activists hijack Presidents' Day

Baldwin's Trump then said the show's signature catch phrase, "Live from NY ... it's Saturday night".

Baldwin's Trump went on to evade questions from the satirized media. Critics said Trump didn't help his case when he acknowledged: "I could do the wall over a longer period of time".

"You all see why I gotta fake this emergency, right?" Trump wrote. "Likewise for many other shows?" One person who was not a fan of the skit, was Trump himself.

"We're mobilizing rapid-response events on Presidents Day - Monday, 2/18 - against Trump's fake crisis and racist deportation force and to stand with immigrant, Muslim, and Black and brown communities to stop Trump's unsafe and illegal power grab", MoveOn wrote on its website organizing the efforts. Very unfair and should be looked into.

A statement posted on MoveOn's website read: "We are mobilising on Monday (Presidents' Day) with nonviolent rapid-response events to stand up to defend our democracy and immigrant, Muslim, black and brown communities from Trump's risky national emergency power grab".

White House senior adviser Stephen Miller told "Fox News Sunday" that "the president is going to protect his national emergency declaration".

Peter Baker, Chief White House Correspondent of The New York Times, noted on Twitter that "no other president in decades publicly threatened "retribution" against a television network because it satirized him".

NBC's comedy flagship took aim at Trump's extraordinary decision to call a national emergency, a move he took to sidestep Congress' refusal to hand over billions of dollars in funding for his promised border wall.

"That's why we need wall: because wall works".

"If we give away, surrender the power of the purse, our most important power, there will be little check and no balance left", he said. Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came ... to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. If a Democrat becomes president after the 2020 election, he or she could easily use the same logic utilized by Trump to justify a border wall in order to achieve their own controversial policy goals.
