1. Good idea!

And Lil' Marco, in years to come, you can explain to your constituents why you didn't do jack shit as the most widely anticipated crisis in human history ate their state, destroyed their property, sank their cities and ruined their lives.

Pantload.

Cities in Florida being underwater at high tide is not Marco Rubio's nightmare scenario. President Kamala Harris declaring climate change an emergency is.

2. If I were Marco Rubio

I'd be working on my opposition response to the State of the Union Address.

And if I were Speaker Pelosi, I'd be working on my State of the Union Address.

9. almost every republican attack on Democrats

...has been met with a resounding "Yeah, so what?"

Their politics is such an anachronism they don't realize their complaints serve to reveal the worst about their own objectionable, ignorant selves instead of harming their targets.

24. She is my Senator

I never noticed race beyond being a little jealous off her, the Obama's and my grandaughters lovely tan complexions.

No baking to get a tan. Sweet!

I think it's her brains and spirit which pisses them off.

7. Why not?

At least it would be a true emergency after all that the Orange Buffoon has done to the EPA to eliminate or water down climate protections in the past two years.

8. Repubs are asking too if they're willing to see assault weapons restricted by Dem national emergency

Not just climate change, but I would say multiple mass shootings with hundreds of victims is more of a national emergency than the wall.

11. but not alarmed at seeking to use the military

...to effect Trump's domestic political goals at the border.

Wait until the folks in Texas whose land is being sought for seizure by the feds for Trump's Wall get their backs up.

15. Setting the Harris knock aside...

Rubio asking a question like this is not good news for drumpf. Basically letting drumpf know that the GOP is not on board with the national emergency bullshit.

Of course in typical GOP fashion they will reign concern and probably bow down to drumpf in the end.

And this is why SCOTUS will rule against Tяump if he declares a national emergency.

21. It's bigger than a NATIONAL Emergency... It's a WORLD Emergency.

People are already dying as a result of Climate Change.

Billions of people are going to die from this within the next century.

More than any pandemic or plague, more than a world war, the devastation will be apocalyptic.

26. What a stunning contrast. A made up emergency that does not exist, at all, at all.

And an emergency that is going to kill hundreds of millions, no matter what we do.

But even little Marco understands why and emergency declaration is a bad idea.
