The Tiny Tyrant is now claiming that he never wanted to “do” healthcare first, no. He’s claiming he never ever intended to pass the repeal and replace in the first 100 days, nope, nope, nope. There is one thing to say about all those Trump fanatics, they did actually listen to him, and I’m pretty sure they heard all the times the Tiny Tyrant yelled about destroying the ACA. I wonder if they’ll stop a moment now, and figure out that no, it’s not just actual politicians who lie. In comparison to the Tiny Tyrant, politicians don’t lie much at all, because they know they will be called to account. The Tiny Tyrant hasn’t seemed to have figured that one out yet. He just lies, and expects everyone to swallow it down.
Think Progress has a complete list of the 68 times Trump swore to kill off healthcare, immediately. Here are three of them:
“Someone said what’s the first thing you’re going to do? Well we’re going to work immediately on repealing Obamacare.” [Sioux City, IA, 10/27/15]
“I would work immediately on Obamacare repeal and replace, and we would do something terrific there.” [FOX, 11/3/15]
“Everybody in here, many of you know me, from day one I’ve been talking about we’re going to repeal and replace Obamacare from day one, we’re going to do it. If you remember, so important, from day one I’ve been saying, repeal and replace Obamacare.” [Milford, NH, 2/2/16]
Anderson Cooper has been busy laying down the truth in light of all the current refutations by the Tiny Tyrant and regime. Cooper has two videos of all the times the Tiny Tyrant promised to “do” healthcare on Day One. Oh, that infamous Day One.
“Today, Republicans failed to do what they’ve been promising for years, the president failed to do what he said he would from the beginning of his campaign,” Cooper said, claiming that he was speaking from the “smoking political crater formerly known as Washington.”
But according to Trump, he never intended to pass the repeal and replacement of Obamacare in the first 100 days. Cooper fact-checked the claim with a supercut of videos showing that over and over again Trump pledged for Trumpcare to be the first issue and take place on “day one.”
“That was the president on repealing and replacing ASAP on the campaign,” Cooper said.
After the commercial break, Cooper called out Trump for being unable to do what he has always claimed “he knows how to do best:” Make a deal.
Cooper rolled another supercut of each of the times Trump claimed that he would make the best deal and his lesson on how to make a deal. There were even cases in which Trump attacked Democrats and Republicans for being unable to make a deal, as he said that he could have done in their place.
