My feelings are that if this is needed in a true emergency, he doesn't need their permission. If it isn't a true emergency, HE doesn't need to worry about it anyway. This isn't how America works...and he's being thrown out on his butt in a couple months to make that point.
King Barry needs to take a breather......all he is doing, at every turn, is pissing people off. Isn't he even mildly interested in this re-election
thing or has he got other plans? Seems mighty unconcerned for a man about to face the wrath of unemployed and pissed off voters.
