Trump Declared National Emergency

"This really is a state of emergency, folks," said President Donald Trump Friday morning. "And it's never been this out of control. It has been pretty bad for a while, for sure. But we haven't seen a threat to our Country this serious since, I don't know, maybe the Bay of Pigs."

The remarks came during a press conference in which the President demanded 8 billion dollars for fencing along the Mexican border. "This is an emergency, folks. And if I don't get that money it's only going to get worse. Much worse."

America reacted to the President's national emergency declaration with stunned acceptance. "This really is an emergency," said some person I made up. "Maybe we should give him the money? I mean, maybe this will calm things down for a while?" said that person. "I'm scared of what will happen if we do nothing."
