The former CBS news anchor on Monday reacted to Trump’s startling admission that he “didn’t need to” declare the emergency with the following tweet:
"I didn't need to do this" is something I occasionally say after ordering dessert, not after ordering national emergencies.

In 2018, Rather coined the “Flock of Felons” nickname to describe the people that Trump surrounds himself with, a moniker that subsequently went viral.
His latest Trump-themed quip spread similarly online, with actress and singer Nancy Sinatra calling it “brilliant.”

Well said. And I bet you wouldn't fly to FL for golf if you had just declared a national emergency. https://t.co/7gu3pSZjM0
