In 1976 Congress relinquished their power and made it possible (and legal) for the President to declare a state of emergency. So if anyone doesn't like the President declaring such then they should blame Congress, not the President.
It's another example of Congress not fulfilling it's responsibilities.
I believe there have been 32 states of emergencies declared since 1976, most still in effect. Where was all the "outrage" when those were declared?
