THERESA May is set to resign tomorrow after losing the support of her party and seeing her Brexit deal collapse. The bleary-eyed PM dug in at No10 overnight, under siege from all sides and facing the imminent end of her time in office. Theresa May is set to quit as Prime Minister as soon as tomorrow She has arranged to see Tory chief Sir Graham Brady tomorrow after Andrea Leadsom dramatically quit the Cabinet. Aides expect her to announce she is stepping down – triggering a leadership election which will take around six weeks. Even the most loyal Tory MPs are now going public with their demands for Mrs May to resign as soon as possible. Yesterday the PM’s closest officials told her she has lost the confidence of the party, and has no chance of getting her Brexit deal through Parliament. As Mrs May enters the endgame of her time in office: The Tories face a battering at today’s European elections Leadership rivals jostled for position with Boris Johnson favourite to take over Andrea Leadsom hit out at Remainers who have undermined Brexit Other ministers threatened to quit if Mrs May clings on The Prime Minister bought herself a few more hours in office last night by sending the Chief Whip to address furious party grandees. But she refused to go and see them herself, bunkering down in 10 Downing Street instead. Julian Smith told the 1922 Committee Mrs May will hold a meeting with chairman Sir Graham after the Euro elections are over. She is expected to announce her resignation, although she’ll stay as interim leader while a new PM is elected by Tory MPs and members. If Mrs May refuses to step down, the committee is likely to change party rules to allow an immediate no-confidence vote. It’s understood members have already cast votes on a rule change, with their ballots sealed in an envelope which will only be opened if the PM tries to continue in office. Cabinet rebels are furious at Mrs May for saying the Government will legislate for a second Brexit referendum if the Commons votes for one. One minister said: “It’s not just her intention of legis­lating for a second refer­endum. It’s also become a clear reality the PM is no longer getting a hearing, so someone else now needs to do it.” It also emerged that 76 Tory MPs — a quarter of her party — are now vowing to vote down her deal. As well as Mrs Leadsom, seven other Cabinet ministers have told No10 they won’t back Mrs May’s high-stakes final Brexit gamble — a clear signal for her to step down. Others in the top-table revolt include Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Environment Secretary Michael Gove, Trade Secretary Liam Fox, Treasury Chief Secretary Liz Truss and Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay. In the event of a new Tory leadership contest, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would be a front-runner. But allies said Mrs Leadsom is considering whether to mount a new Tory leadership challenge to succeed Mrs May. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN POLITICS” posts_category=”13″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] It would be her second tilt at the top job following her controversial bid in 2016 when she was forced to withdraw after appearing to suggest she was a better choice for the PM because she had children. In her resignation letter, Mrs Leadsom said the PM’s plans would fail to “deliver on the referendum result”. She acknowledged that leaving on the eve of today’s European elections was damaging but she insisted she had to quit as she was “fundamentally opposed” to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which she was due to unveil to MPs today.

Actor John Cusack faced pushback on social media after he was caught not standing for a military salute at a Cubs game at Wrigley Field Wednesday night.

“I didn’t stand up for Boeing military salute – fast enough for some maga f— – see?” he tweeted in his defense. The “Hot Tub Time Machine” star was apparently referring to President Trump supporters.

Cusack tweeted that he eventually stood up “just not on que – like an Obedient pet.”

The “Say Anything” actor has been a vocal critic of the president and has called for his impeachment and removal from office, according to The Hill. “Trump. Wraps himself in the us flag – literarily hugs it . You think he’s a patriot?” he asked rhetorically on Twitter Wednesday.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Peloi’s actions today proved that Democrats are “uninterested” when it comes to working with President Trump.

“I still remember, maybe some of you do, as well, when Democrats actually cared about issues like the abuse of government authority, the overreach of the surveillance state, the presumption of innocence. But all of that went out the window, all of those principles, when key figures in the Obama DOJ became obsessed to their core, every fiber of their being, with taking out Trump,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle,” referencing the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe.

ANGRY DEM SAYS TRUMP ‘RAPING THE COUNTRY,’ AS IMPEACHMENT PUSH NEARS CRITICAL MASS

Shortly before a meeting to discuss infrastructure with Trump Wednesday Pelosi accused the president of engaging in a “cover-up” prompting the president to cut the meeting short and call for Democrats to end their investigating during a Rose Garden presser.

Ingraham says those comments by Pelosi and her actions afterwards probe that Democrats are do not plan to do anything except stall the president’s agenda.

“That move naturally infuriated the president, and it revealed once and for all that the Democrats are uninterested in actually working with the president to solve problems. Their sole goal, to stall his agenda through 2020. The people be damned,” Ingraham said.

The Fox News host also called Democratic leaders “unserious.”

“I am now convinced that these are just totally unserious people up on Capitol Hill. They are more interested in grandstanding in the Democrat party than doing almost anything constructive for the people who put them there into office,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham touted the president’s work despite the opposition and criticized Pelosi for not working.

:”Think about Trump. Despite everything he has been through, investigations, all the accusations he was a traitor, he was working with Putin, all of these ridiculous charges. He pushed through policies that have revved up this economy that have resulted in increased wages, stoking manufacturing jobs, consumer confidence way out. And meanwhile, what has Pelosi actually accomplished?” Ingraham said.

The Democrats’ fixation on taking down President Trump ahead of the 2020 election is not in the country’s best interest and ultimately overlooks his accomplishments, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Wednesday.

Jordan’s comments came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s earlier remarks that Democrats “believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

“When entire your focus is on attacking and stopping the president, you can’t do what’s best for the country,” Jordan said during an appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“When entire your focus is on attacking and stopping the president, you can’t do what’s best for the country.”

— U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio

REPS. ROY, JORDAN, BIGGS: PELOSI, DEMS JUST DON’T CARE ABOUT OUR NATIONAL EMERGENCY

Reacting to a comment by NBC’s Chuck Todd that Republicans’ only accomplishment is protecting Trump, Jordan touted the president’s list of accomplishments:

Despite the Democrats’ persistent efforts to attack Trump until the 2020 election, he said, the president has had an “unbelievable” record of achievement during his two-and-a-half years in office, including reducing regulations, cutting taxes, appointing conservative judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, and getting the U.S. out of the Iran deal, among other achievements.

“I think it’s a pretty good record to run on,” Jordan told host Laura Ingraham. “The only thing the Democrats are going to have to run on is attacking the president, who’s responsible for all those good things.”

Jordan then speculated that the Democrats’ concerted effort on Trump was a ploy to cover up Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, in which Barr said intelligence officials spied on the Trump campaign.

“All the evidence is seeming to point to, the FBI was out to get the president,” Jordan said. “That’s the investigation that counts, and that’s the one that scares all these people.”
