Nancy Pelosi is about to experience the biggest embarrassment of her life

Nancy Pelosi drew a line in the sand and dared Donald Trump to cross it.

Her gamble backfired spectacularly.

And now Speaker Pelosi is about to experience the biggest embarrassment of her life.

Nancy Pelosi drew up a resolution of disapproval to stop President Trump’s declaration of national emergency to use military funds to build the border wall.

Pelosi hoped enough Republicans would jump ship and embarrass the President into suffering either an historic bipartisan defeat, or shame him into withdrawing the emergency declaration.

Trump refused to blink and vetoed the resolution.

Now Pelosi is stuck holding a doomed-to-fail veto override vote.

Politico reports:

The House on Tuesday will try — and fail — to overturn President Donald Trump’s veto of a congressional resolution killing his national wall emergency, capping off a months-long congressional battle over the president’s signature campaign issue.

But even as some members of the GOP face a backlash for defying Trump, few if any House Republican defectors who supported the disapproval resolution are expected to flip their votes and side with the president in the override vote, according to lawmakers and aides.

After the effort to block Trump’s veto fails, the fight over his attempt to use executive action to build a border wall will shift to the courts, where its fate is far less certain.

Still, Tuesday’s override vote will hand the president yet another victory this week following the conclusion of special counsel Bob Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, adding a cherry on top of what is undoubtedly the GOP’s best stretch since losing their House majority last fall.

Pelosi lost round one of this fight.

Now the next phase will take place in the courts.

Will President Trump emerge victorious there as well?
