The resistance never sleeps, but as Twitchy reported, it does indulge in a weekend time-out now and then so its members can “reflect and resist” and maybe sober up after St. Patrick’s Day.
It’s a strange time for the resistance. Just think: only days before Donald Trump’s inauguration, Rosie O’Donnell let it be known that she fully supported imposing martial law in order to delay Trump’s swearing-in ceremony, and now Trump’s opponents have pretty much handed the reins to the not-so-able cast of Saturday Night Live.
Speaking of things that aren’t funny, those pre-inauguration concerns that President Trump would immediately seize all power don’t seem to have faded completely. Richard Engel of NBC News tweeted this tidbit Monday:
A sr US official told me he's worried if there's a major event, like terrorist attack, trump/allies will take more power, point of no return
— Richard Engel (@RichardEngel) March 20, 2017
@RichardEngel To quote you on election night …'terrifying'.
— janet Gutierrez (@Jaxjanetg) March 20, 2017
So an unnamed senior official somewhere in the federal government passed along a vague outline of his concern over what Trump would do following a major event; that’s not much to go on, but more than enough to set off the resistance.
Trump is so devious, though, he’s trying to sign a temporary travel ban into effect that the experts are certain will inflame terrorists worldwide, while the resistance is doing all it can to prevent that from happing by mobbing airports and holding up “Let them in!” signs to ensure people from all countries are allowed to enter indiscriminately.
@RichardEngel – um, hope your wrong for a lot of reasons. But I don't see this country rallying around that man.

@RichardEngel this is the major fear. And why Trump needs to go down sooner rather than later.

@RichardEngel Totally agree. We will become a police state

@RichardEngel I believe this is exactly what they are engineering in order to enact martial law. Congress is complicit in all that happens.
— Katie (@mkvktm) March 20, 2017
Remember when everyone had a fit when “Queen of Nice” Rosie O’Donnell declared her support for martial law in early January? We don’t.
@RichardEngel I think that's what most of us are worried about.

@RichardEngel Worried? Worried?? It's a damn done deal. Unless he's impeached soon we are history as a democracy.

The classics never do go out of style, do they? Certainly there were those who were afraid Obama was going to do whatever it took to hold onto power, and instead he went kitesurfing in the Caribbean with Richard Branson.
@RichardEngel It's something many of us assumed, but is absolutely terrifying to hear confirmed from a senior official

@RichardEngel This is their "in case of emergency break glass" plan.

Good luck getting ready for war with an armory full of pussy hats and safety pins.

@KmbrlyKnght Not sure how that helps, are you not a resident of Earth? Sounds pretty selfish.

A lot of credible experts … and Stars Tinkle.
@RichardEngel Really it took someone to tell you that. Have you been living under a rock. Why do you think we are going to war w NK.

This could go on and on, so before it does: is there anyone responding to Engel’s tweet who’s not taking it a confirmation of armageddon?
@RichardEngel Richard, you have become such a disappointment to me as that is just inflammatory again. You've lost your credibility to centrists. Sad
— James H. Somers (@Goofyfoot5) March 20, 2017
@RichardEngel WTF are you talking abt 'point of no return'. Are a legit reporter or a LW conspiracy nut? Is there even a diff anymore?
