Here’s something sure to strike a nerve with a lot of people. On Thursday, the president turned his ire upon — guess who — the widely beloved Senator Bernie Sanders.
In a battle of reputations and characters, does Trump really think he has even the slightest chance of winning against Sanders? The prospect that he does is laughable at best — demented at worst.
The bone that the president endeavored to pick with Sen. Sanders is over the latter’s recent introduction of a single payer health care act on the floor of the Senate. Sanders’ measure has garnered the support a number of Democratic Senators — but Trump takes the proposal as a personal slight, since he tried to get a health care bill passed earlier this year and failed.
He wrote on Twitter:
‘Bernie Sanders is pushing hard for a single payer healthcare plan – a curse on the U.S. & its people. I told Republicans to approve healthcare fast or this would happen. But don’t worry, I will veto because I love our country & its people.’
And with that, the nation laughed itself to death, a “curse” that many probably never saw coming.
A single payer health care plan would literally provide health care to more people than have it now, but lo and behold, Donald Trump does not care.
