God damn it, just veto his ass already!
Is there no check against this kind of stonewalling? I was going to ask "why can't they just go around Trump" and I saw that was answered, but it seems insane that at any point there is a single point of failure like McConnell just sitting on his ass.
Again, its up to Senate GOP. They could force a revolt against his leadership in-caucus and get a new guy who would but like when there was a one-seat lead where any backbencher GOP could be King or Queen of DC, it seems he has some hold on them of a sort or other that nips that sort of hard dealing...
South Texas is not Republican, let alone pro-Trump. Why does everyone think Texas is some sort of monolith?
I don't think it's a monolith. As a Texan, I'm used to being disappointed by my neighbors.
Seriously. South Texas is culturally it's own thing and the size of a lot of states. Mostly Hispanic and liberal, but not the same type of liberal as Austin.
