I just received a “news” alert from our good friends at The Washington Post, and LOL’d.
Trump changes course and tells senators to stay in Washington to finish health-care bill
Hoping to avoid a humiliating political defeat, President Trump on Wednesday demanded that Republican senators resume their efforts to approve a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, insisting that lawmakers are “very close.”
Umm, failing to repeal and/or replace the ACA is the very least of Trump’s “humiliating” political defeats. And I hate to be the one to break it to him (lol no I loooove it) but in the United States Senate, “very close” is NOT the same thing as “winning a majority of votes.”
“People should not leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we give our people great health care,” Trump said at the beginning of a lunch with GOP senators at the White House. “We’re close, very close… We have to hammer this out and get it done.”
YES! We’re soooo close to everyone having the Greatest Health Care That Ever Health Cared! Let’s git ‘er done!!!
The president’s effort to resurrect negotiations came a day after he declared it was time to give up on the contentious process to overturn President Obama’s signature legislative achievement and “let Obamacare fail.”
*snort* *snort* *snicker* BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
A day after giving up on it. Well I for one cannot wait to hear the president’s position on healthcare legislation tomorrow. Or perhaps Friday?
Ooh! Ooh! I hope it’s single payer!

What are the odds of him popping up at Mar-a-Lago before there’s a plan?

Spelled “MEDIOCRE” wrong. The Media Ogres will sue.
Robert Munck says
Apparently Mar-A-Lego closes for the summer, but he’ll almost certainly leave the District for one of his golf courses. I believe that the guy thinks he was elected president of the PGA.
