Obama Veto OVERRIDDEN By Senate For 1st Time In 8 Years, And By A MASSIVE Amount

President Barack Obama suffered a huge blow today as the U.S. Senate voted 97 to 1 in favor of overriding his veto of a bill that would allow 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi Arabian government for their role in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.


According to Fox News, Obama's own party turned against him, with New York Democratic Senator Charles Schumer proclaiming, “It’s very simple. If the Saudis were culpable, they should be held accountable. If they had nothing to do with 9/11, they have nothing to fear."

The measure now goes to the U.S. House of Representatives, where it will need a two-thirds majority as well to pass. If passed it would become law as well as a big bruise on Obama's tarnished legacy.

According to Jordan Fabian for The Hill, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the override of Obama's veto "'the single most embarrassing thing the Senate has done' in decades."

Democratic House Minority Leader Harry Reid was the lone dissenting vote, according to Roll Call.
