This cracked me up. Trump is such a clown. He interrupts praising his Trumpcare passing the house to say
Hey, I'm President! Hey, I'm president! Can you believe it, right?
Hahah. As Mediate says
Nothing to see here. Just Trump stopping a speech to talk about the fact that he won the presidency. It’s been six months, but “can you believe it, right?”
Course he's either lying or clueless about Trumpcare.
The bill’s impact is wide-ranging, potentially affecting not only the millions who could lose coverage through deep cuts in Medicaid or no longer be able to afford to buy coverage in the state marketplaces. With states allowed to seek waivers from providing certain benefits, employers big and small could scale back what they pay for each year or reimpose lifetime limits on coverage. In particular, small businesses, some of which were strongly opposed to the Affordable Care Act, could be free to drop coverage with no penalty.
The prospect of millions of people unable to afford coverage led to an outcry from the health care industry as well as consumer groups. They found an uncommon ally in some insurers, who rely heavily on Medicaid and Medicare as mainstays of their business and hope the Senate will be more receptive to their concerns.
House Republicans gleefully passed a bill that would kill millions of Americans.
Republicans in the House of Representatives jammed through their health care bill, the American Health Care Act or AHCA, by a narrow margin. The AHCA is a monstrosity, a moral disgrace, a document that would allow insurance companies to treat rape, pregnancy complications and post-partum depression like pre-existing conditions. It takes away money from special education and Planned Parenthood. If the AHCA was enacted today, millions of Americans would lose health insurance and millions of Americans would die horrible deaths from completely treatable diseases. So what are the odds that the AHCA will actually make it through the Senate?
Trump's healthcare bill allows rape to be a pre-existing condition
When House Republicans passed the American Health Care Act on Thursday, many Americans likely thought of their family and friends living with cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. These diseases are commonly referred to as “pre-existing conditions” – conditions which, under the Republican health care bill, could result in them being denied health insurance.
But another, less publicised group of people were also concerned by the bill's passage: rape survivors.
Before Obamacare, some insurance companies considered rape and domestic abuse pre-existing conditions. One woman, Jody Neal-Post, says she was turned away after telling a potential insurance that she was a domestic violence victim – despite otherwise being perfectly healthy.
Trump has now made 33 visits to Trump-branded properties since his inauguration
Recognizing that criticism of his trip was likely, Trump tweeted about his visit to Bedminster on Friday morning.
Rather than causing a big disruption in N.Y.C., I will be working out of my home in Bedminster, N.J. this weekend. Also saves country money!
That staying at the White House would both save money and avoid the criticism that his visits to Trump-brand properties may help to line his own pockets wasn’t addressed in subsequent tweets.
Juditical Watch finds out it costs US over a million bucks for 2 weekends at MarALago
The conservative legal watchdog organization Judicial Watch says President Trump's flights to the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for two weekends in February and March cost taxpayers $1,281,420.
According to the watchdog group, the figures were obtained from the Air Force in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
The records also revealed that the average cost to operate president's airplane is $142,380 per hour, Judicial Watch said.
Chuck Lorre trolls Donald Trump
Donald Ttump just makes up stuff about history. Of course.
Like many of Mr. Trump’s claims, the inscription was evidently not fact-checked.
“No. Uh-uh. No way. Nothing like that ever happened there,” said Richard Gillespie, the executive director of the Mosby Heritage Area Association, a historical preservation and education group devoted to an 1,800-square-mile section of the Northern Virginia Piedmont, including the Lowes Island site.
“The only thing that was remotely close to that,” Mr. Gillespie said, was 11 miles up the river at the Battle of Ball’s Bluff in 1861, a rout of Union forces in which several hundred were killed. “The River of Blood?” he added. “Nope, not there.”
Trump's Civil War History Comments Show a Lack of Interest in America
Americans have placed vast military power at the discretion of this mind, a presidential discretion that is largely immune to restraint by the Madisonian system of institutional checks and balances. So, it is up to the public to quarantine this presidency by insistently communicating to its elected representatives a steady, rational fear of this man whose combination of impulsivity and credulity render him uniquely unfit to take the nation into a military conflict.
The Trump GOP’s attempt to abolish it is therefore, to my mind, neither conservative nor decent. It’s reactionary and callous. Its effective abandonment of 95 percent of us with preexisting conditions will strike real terror in a lot of people’s hearts. Its gutting of Medicaid will force millions of the poor to lose health care almost altogether. It will bankrupt the struggling members of the working and middle classes who find themselves in a serious health crisis. It could hurt Republicans in the midterms —though that will be cold comfort for the countless forced into penury or sickness because of Trump’s desire for a “win.” But it’s clarifying for me. It forces me to back a Democratic Party I don’t particularly care for. And it destroys any notion I might have had that American conservatism gives a damn about the vulnerable. It really is a deal-breaker for me. I hope many others feel exactly the same way.
