Trump Just Woke Up, Entered Bizzaro World, & Went On A Level 8 Sunday Tantrum


Leave it to Donald Trump to tweet a message this asinine.

Sunday morning, President Trump sent out the following message:

‘Anybody (especially Fake News media) who thinks that Repeal & Replace of ObamaCare is dead does not know the love and strength in R party!’

‘Talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck.’

Yet, it was Donald Trump who tweeted on the morning of the last day they were intending on voting on the ObamaCare replacement: the American Health Care Act (ACHA) that Republicans had better get behind it, or be stuck with ObamaCare indefinitely.

He tweeted a series of messages with similar underlying motives before he finally gave up on the healthcare bill. It seemed, the disparity within the Republican party was growing, and their leader was becoming all the more hostile due to representatives who refused to blindly support anything he wanted them to.

Furthermore, instead of focusing on perceived “love and strength” within your party, Donald, you should think of the millions of people outside your clique who have shown immense resilience and strength, who have poured out in droves to protest the discriminatory agenda you push. You can’t have “love” without respect, and Donald Trump has shown he is incapable.

The very fact that any time healthcare comes up, Trump tweets about how great he is, how great the bill was, and how great his party is, is extremely telling. Instead of patting yourselves on the back that maybe now you’ve decided you’ll all work together to have another crack at a replacement bill, it might be a novel idea to consider — for even a moment — the people who that healthcare bill will affect, and the ways the uncertainty surrounding the future of American healthcare is frightening to them right now.

Of course, that’s too much to ask of this president. As long as he, his advisors and Cabinet and his party are looking good (in that order) — what’s a few dozen million people dying if he gets it wrong again, and the GOP pushes it through?
