Tom Perez: Satisfying Rush Limbaugh Is Not a National Emergency
PEREZ: "Well, satisfying Rush Limbaugh and making sure you have a political trophy is not a national emergency. This is ridiculous. He will face problems in the Congress and he will face problems in the court. Because the Congress, I’m confident, will take up a resolution of disapproval. Once the House does it, the Senate must do it. You heard so many Republicans in the run-up to this most recent invented crisis of the President say, 'You should not to do this.' Republicans have done this. So once you pass it, the resolution of disapproval in the House, it will go to the Senate. And those Republicans in the Senate who said he should not this, this will be a put up and shut up moment for them. And, again, I have no doubt that this will then go to the courts. And, again, justifying a national emergency because Rush Limbaugh is chattering in your ear, that’s just not the definition of a national emergency. This is ridiculous. But he’s got to satisfy his base and scratch that itch."
