Today Alaska Senator Lisa Murkoswki failed to heed Lindsey Graham’s dire warning to the GOP over the border and stabbed the President in the back.
Graham had warned that illegal immigration is the defining issue for the GOP at the moment and if party leaders fail to back President Trump on the border emergency the base would turn on them.
Well Senator Murkowski apparently does not care about any of this, so she plans to back Democrats who want to stop the President from doing everything he can to protect American citizens.
Watch as Lisa Murkowski sticks a knife in President Trump’s back:
Despicable. She should be ashamed of herself for this.

REPORTER: “Do you support terminating that, this resolution, to terminate the emergency declaration?”
MURKOWSKI: “Yes, I will be.”
MURKOWSKI: “Based — based on everything that I have seen that we will be receiving, yes is the answer.” … “I have been concerned whenever any president, Republican or Democrat, moves beyond what I think most would consider to be their authorities.”
Reaction was swift:

And she was absent on the Pro life senate vote to prevent infanticide.

Fox confirms that GOP AK Sen Murkowski will support a resolution to terminate Trump’s nat’l emergency for the border. This virtually assures that the measure will pass the Senate if/when it comes up if Dems stick together …after it passes the Hse later today (which is expected)

Lindsey Graham is right. The GOP needs to stick together to do what’s right for America and American citizens. If they fail to do so they’ll pay the price in 2020.
