This was his plan wasn't it? lose and keep losing til it ends up at the supreme court where he'll win and honeslty given whose on the court he very well be right about that.

For the life of me I swear I heard him say that, but don't remember where exactly. I'll try to find the quote later on.

Naturally Trump's first veto is for the worthless cause of his stupid border wall, which is too idiotic even for most Congressional Republicans.

Maybe I'm being cynical here, but I think it's more turtle face and his peeps did it to save face. Because it is a s*** move and smells of abuse of power. So they don't have to be held responsible. Nice cop out yeah? However, they did this knowing Trump would veto, and the supreme court would okay it. I think even Trump touched on this tact.

I hope that is not the case.


Tillis and Lee were pretty open on their reason

They knew a future Democratic president would try and use this as precedent to do something terrible like give people healthcare or protect the environment

Provided Trump doesn't get another Justice, I don't think SCOTUS will rule in his favor.

Roberts is a reasonable man, Trump has flat out admitted there was no need for an emergency, it was just faster, and I don't think Roberts wants to be known in history for letting such a flagrant violation of Congressional procedure go unchecked.

I really don't see Roberts supporting trump on this one. It'll be 5-4 with Roberts being the deciding vote.

Gorsuch isn't a guarantee to side with Trump either.

At the presser he used the shooter's rhetoric to make his case for the wall, referring to Mexicans as "invaders"

https://twitter.com/ddale8/status/1106641548740100097

Per pool: Trump called the terror attack a "horrible, horrible thing" and said he called the PM to convey US "sorrow," then turned to “crimes of all kinds coming through our southern border.” He added, "People hate the word invasion, but that’s what it is.”


The shooter literally called his targets as invaders, yet Trump used the same term on a different group of people in the same call. His cultists got the real message loud and clear. Donnie is a really dangerous man to have in power right now.

And Trump's f***ing wall would have done jack s*** to stop the shooting. But don't tell his cult that.
