This is only the beginning.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) will break with President Trump and vote to reopen the government without funding for a border wall, his spokesman told The Denver Post editorial board.
Gardner is one of three Republicans expected to vote to advance the “clean” funding bill.
Gardner’s spokesman told the Denver Post that the senator planned to vote for a “clean funding bill … with no border-security funding attached.”
Gardner, who is up for re-election in 2020 in a state where Hillary Clinton defeated Trump in 2016, also intends to vote for a measure backed by Trump that the Senate will consider on Thursday.
Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) are also expected to vote for the “clean” funding bill.
“I’m in the camp of being happy that we’re going to be going to the floor and having an opportunity to vote on proceeding to anything,” Murkowski said. “I’m not very optimistic at its chance of passage but we’ve got to get ourselves off of dead center here.”
I think having Nancy Pelosi slap his dick in public has destroyed Trump’s mythos as a strong alpha male.
He got wrecked and now people are seeing him for the phony that he is, and his chances of bullying them into compliance are diminishing by the day.
I do have to say that I am continuing to enjoy this rare sense of pride in one of my Senators.
I realize that it will not last for long but at least for the time being Senator Lisa Murkowski is not acting like a sheep.
