GOP Senators Show Trump Who's Boss On Shutdown, Just Kidding It's Susan Collins

It's not easy bein' queasy.

Remember watching now-former Nevada GOP Senator Dean Heller twist in the wind for the past two years, desperately trying to appear moderate while dodging shit-tweets from Trump, all the while knowing he was a dead man walking? Well bye bye, Dean! and HELLO CORY! Colorado GOP Senator Cory Gardner is heading into a 2020 campaign in a state that went for Hillary Clinton by five points, and in 2018, flipped its state senate to the Democrats, gave the Democrats a sweep in a bunch of state races, picked up a new Democratic congressman in the Denver suburbs and elected Jared Polis to be its openly gay Jewish Democratic governor. He's already in trouble, but pissing off Trump enough that he aims the fire hose of abuse at him or backs a primary challenger means certain death. Just ask retired South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford!

So what's a GOP squish to do? The Hill reports:

Gardner is the first Senate Republican to call for ending the partial shutdown even without a deal on Trump's demand for $5 billion to fund a border wall.

"I think we should pass a continuing resolution to get the government back open. The Senate has done it last Congress, we should do it again today," he said.

Ooooooh, TOUGH GUY takin' a real stand! Gardner would maybe sort of like Mitch McConnell to let the Senate vote on some of the stuff they all agreed to two weeks ago, when they voted unanimously to fund the government without WALL money. But that was before Senators Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter called Trump a limpdick and triple-dog-dared him to shut down the government, which Trump was PROUD TO DO, as he announced on national television.
