The National Emergency is that Our President is a Bit of a Putz
The first rule of national emergencies is that once you declare one you shouldn't admit that you are only doing it for reasons of political expediency.
The Week: After announcing he would declare a national emergency and redirect federal funds for the border, Trump suggested he's doing so because it's the "faster" option."
I could do the wall over a longer period of time," he said. "I didn't need to do this. But I would rather do it much faster."
I'm sure all five conservative members of the United States Supreme Court cringed upon hearing our President's reasoning, especially Chief Justice Roberts. At some point the Court will be called upon to rule on Trump's "national emergency." The President may get the five votes he needs on the Court, but their decision will always be seen as purely political. Thus, he will have undermined public confidence in the Court, much as he has sullied everything else he has touched in his life.
