Forget about what assholes like Bill'O have to say.

They've abandoned reason and truth years ago, when they realized that feeding the stupidity of their base is what makes them rich. Truth certainly doesn't.

They want to be coddled, and feel warm inside.

It'll probably pass Congress with a veto-proof majority now that he's given the GOP the go-ahead, no?
veto-proof majority doesn't mean anything

if he vetoes it (he wont) the GOP isn't going to override him regardless of how many voted initially. It's no different than their failure to pass a CR that previously passed unanimously. They will do what Trump tells them, because they've abdicated all of their power to him

He'd still have to explicitly veto the bill and then Congress can choose to vote on it again in order to override to veto. From a purely technical point of view, a veto-proof majority on the first vote doesn't mean anything.

It definitely means something as it would pin the blame squarely on Trump and McConnell and turtle don't want anymore of this shit.

The new CR should be able to reach a close to 100-0 veto proof majority, but with Bitch Mitch eagerly sucking the farts directly out of Trump's butthole I'm sure he wouldn't let that happen.
I mean, pretty clearly Cotton and Lee won't vote for it, and I expect show votes from likes of Cruz.
