Hey Guys, remember that time less than a week ago when Hair Fuhrer twatted out that neither the VERY conservative immigration bill, nor the other VERY Conservative immigration bill written by ZEGS (who was trying to get a bill with zero Democrats passed) would do:
Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!

Well, as always the Stable Genius changed his mind, bigly, and in all CAPS so you know he means it:
HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH THE DEMS WON’T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE. PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY WHILE THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS = CRIME. WIN!

…but it was too late, his orcs and minions had already read the first tweet.
The House delivered a massive defeat to a Republican immigration bill Wednesday, despite President Donald Trump’s last-minute push for the legislation and weeks of negotiation between GOP lawmakers.
The 121-301 vote came amid opposition from all Democrats and dozens of Republicans, who feared backing a bill that could be tagged as “amnesty” by the right — even though it closely aligned with Trump’s immigration proposal and received an all-caps Twitter endorsement from the president earlier in the day.
So, now it is on to the 2018 Pie Fight and the only thing that the Republicans have in their quiver is an unpopular tax cut that does nothing for Possum Hollar, and trade wars which will kick the mens(es) of Possum Hollar in the ‘nads. Now to add to their accomplishments—that even with complete control of all the levers of power in all branches of the gubmint—they couldn’t get it together to kick out the Dreamers.
Possum Hollar will not be amused.
