When the history of the rise and fall of @realDonaldTrump is written, #ValentinesDay 2019, House & Senate with #vetoproof majorities forced Trump to give up his wall. But for @foxandfriends @AnnCoulter @rushlimbaugh the @Trump presidency might have survived.
I can't estimate how many traditional Republicans are still Trump supporters but can say with almost certainty that a very powerful base of the GOP will not stand still for a overreaching emergency powers. Nobody, right or left, should turn a blind eye to this @POTUS overreach.
For Trump today was the first time that Congress just hammered him. Today 83 Senators voted to kill his wall. We need 67 to remove him. Building that coalition is the craziest thing Trump could do. And the right wing talk shows got him to do it. It was 100% predictable.
Here is my Jan 5 post. It was obvious.

I wonder if anybody in @WhiteHouse political shop tried to stop him. Surrounded by incompetent ideologues. But I always thought Fox was supporting Trump. So why tell him to go all Kamikaze with idiotic shut down?
Now he's going to alienate any remaining conservatives. Any conservative who had not already headed to the lifeboats to wait out the Tumptanic's sinking is paddling to a new affiliation. For Democrats to put last nail in GOP coffin we need to create a place for conservatives.
In totally Red districts and states we can still put forward candidates who share the fundamental views of the Dem Party without being in lock step. Remember: we elected @DougJones. Democrats can run & win in deep red states. But it is easier when GOP picks a pedophile to run. 😬
