Kirsten Gillibrand's rejection of most Trump nominees. Like Jerry Brown's defying the Trump administration in his State of the State. Like American scientists planning their own March on Washington. Like America's mayors (including Ithaca's) saying, "Fuck you, feds, we'll do the right thing on sanctuary cities without your damn money."
The American presidency lost a lot of ground in the Nixon years and has been steadily shedding its trappings of dominion, but this hourly pushback seems designed to topple it entirely.
