Trump: I Am Tired of the Senate Declaring Fake "Pro Forma" Sessions Which Are Not Sessions to Block Me From Making Recess Appointments.
I Will Now Use My Constitutional Authority to Adjourn Congress and Make These Appointments.

Note that Congress is in fact adjourned -- all Congressmen and Senators have been sent home, and Congress is closed for business.

But to keep Trump from making recess appointments, they declare "pro forma" sessions -- which are not sessions. They're fictions. They just enter into the books that a Congress which is actually adjourned is, on paper, in session.

It's a lie.

How much force are we supposed to give a lie?

I'm sure the usual folks are shrieking, but guess what? He does have the power to do this, in an emergency. And of course, we've had a national emergency for a month.

Is the left going to claim it's not an emergency?

Are NeverTrumpers going to suddenly flip from "this is such an emergency we must shut down the US economy (until the day after the election!!)" to "this is not an emergency at all"?

Given the recent flip on the binary nature of elections: I say, yes, they certainly will flip!

And here's a question I've been wondering about for three years, that I hope will finally be asked of Mitch McConnell:

Why have you been declaring these fake pro forma sessions to block Trump from making his appointments, which the Democrats are blocking en masse in committee?

Why are you actively partnering with Democrats to keep Obama's appointees in place, now into the fourth fucking year of Trump's presidency?

Are you doing favors for your patrons?

Who are you working for, Mitch?
