Real News Breaks Down Latest on Egypt Protests and Power Crisis

As previewed by TheBlaze's Buck Sexton Friday, the frustration towards Mohammed Morsi's government boiled over in massive protests across Egypt through the weekend. Protesters stormed and ransacked the Cairo headquarters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group early Monday, firebombing and vandalizing the building. In peaceful protests Sunday, millions flooded streets throughout the country denouncing the regime that came to power after the nation's first democratic, and controversial elections in 2012 following the 2011 revolution.

Protest organizers have given Morsi a deadline – Tuesday 5pm (Cairo time) to step down.The Morsi government remains defiant though. Reuters has reported that the Egyptian army plans to push Morsi aside and the suspend the constitution if he fails to strike a power-sharing deal with opponents within 24 hours.

President Obama added fuel to that fire Monday night when he called Egypt’s president to impress upon him that democracy was more than an election and that the U.S. only supports the process, not one side over another.

On 'Real News' Tuesday the panel discussed the deadline set by protesters and what seems like the end of Morsi's leadership in Egypt.
