On Tuesday, President Donald Trump participated in a town hall event with ABC in which he took questions from voters, and one of the topics that came up was healthcare. Trump has repeatedly talked about trying to enact some sort of vaguely defined health care plan, but for awhile, there’s been basically nothing on the table from the administration. They have no current health care plan, according to any reasonable understanding of the idea. During the town hall, Trump yet again touted supposed health care plans that are just behind the scenes, and alongside a follow-up video, the anti-Trump group called The Lincoln Project mockingly quipped that Trump “finally unveiled” his proposal. The joke is that there is still nothing.
In their caption for the video, The Lincoln Project wrote:
‘Trump had 4 years to release a healthcare plan, and last night he finally unveiled it.’

The video itself features Trump rambling about a supposed plan from his administration that would protect people with pre-existing conditions. Via ObamaCare, Democrats already enacted many protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and the Trump administration itself is currently embroiled in a court case in which they’re arguing that the entirety of ObamaCare should be thrown out, even though they have no replacement plan ready to go. Pressed about the issue by host George Stephanopoulos, Trump suggested that his administration has run ObamaCare “so much better” than Obama ran it, but even at the maximum greatness from the law, it’s supposedly still not as great as a Trump plan could be. However, Trump has repeatedly promised a health care plan that’s supposedly coming soon but has actually never materialized. He’s just spouting off nonsense.
Across the entirety of the town hall event, Trump lied a lot — CNN’s Daniel Dale characterized Trump’s remarks as a “fire hose of lying.” It’s clear that Trump is totally unfit for the presidency because he has basically no idea what he’s doing, and instead of trying to figure out what he’s supposed to be doing, he’s just going all in on the egomaniacal bluster in an attempt to distract people from his abject failures.
"This was just a fire hose of lying, again, from the President."
