Why won’t McConnell allow a veto override to open the gov’t?

Ok, I want to see a story that explains how Mitch McConnell can simply refuse to take up a bill to override Trump’s veto and re-open the government. He’s not a unique villain, is he? 100 Senators (including McConnell?) voted for it last time, but I guess a bunch of them secretly don’t want it to pass. So they knew it wouldn’t (or did they? Was that the deal that was supposed to pass?).

What’s going on? How does *McConnell* get overridden? Who are the Senators who can do that?
