Bigly Boy Donald Trump worked hard so he got to play with bigly trucks

I call these photos “BIGLY BOY LOVES BIGLY TRUCKS.” Emperor Baby Fists is so bigly and strong and he is such a Bigly Boy. Bigly Boy had such a hard day – he had to try to pass a bigly healthcare bill which would punish old people and sick people for being old and sick! He worked so hard to punish women for being sluts and getting pregnant. So Bigly Boy got a reward: he got to play with bigly trucks at the White House. Bigly Boy got to go vroom-vroom in the bigly trucks and he even got to honk the bigly horn!

So, yeah, that happened. And now I think I might need to change his name again. From Emperor Baby Fists to Easy D to Agent Orange and now to Bigly Boy. It’s all one and the same. Here are some other political stories going around:

The vote on Trumpcare was delayed. Bigly Boy was personally deal-making and pushing the legislation with Republican Congressmen and every time he tried to convince a representative to vote for the ever-changing bill, Bigly Boy ended up losing two more votes. Turns out, he’s a pretty sh-tty dealmaker. The Republicans look like idiots who couldn’t get the bill passed after they A) have control of every branch of government and B) have been bitching about Obamacare for seven g–damn years. Bigly Boy is trying to force a vote today, throwing in the ultimatum that if the House doesn’t vote to repeal this week, Obamacare will stay.

“Essential Health Benefits.” Part of Obamacare is that women are not punished financially for being of child-bearing age, or for actually giving birth to babies. Pregnancy care, natal care, mammograms, pap smears and more are considered Essential Health Benefits and preventative care. Yesterday, Senator Pat Roberts (Republican) made a “quip” about EHBs. When asked if he supported “scrapping Essential Health Benefits,” he snarked: “I wouldn’t want to lose my mammograms.” Ha, so funny Sen. Roberts. Jokes about women with breast cancer! He later apologized.

This Devin Nunes thing is so stupid. Nunes screwed the pooch on Wednesday afternoon when he raced to Bigly Boy to tell him exclusively that Bigly Boy should feel completely vindicated because Nunes’ secret source passed him some (classified?) information about how Trump was totally wiretapped, except not really, there was probably a FISA warrant out on someone and Trump spoke to that person. Now Nunes is saying oh right, maybe he doesn’t have hard evidence after all? Maybe he completely misrepresented everything?

Democrats to filibuster Gorsuch? Maybe. Chuck Schumer wants to filibuster Gorsuch. Sean Spicer threw a hissy fit about that during Thursday’s briefing. Ol’ Spicey had never, ever heard of the filibuster being used for such nefarious political purposes!

Last thing: reporters need to keep asking Spicey about Paul Manafort. Spicey keeps downgrading Manafort’s involvement in the Trump campaign at every single press briefing and it’s getting really ridiculous. Manafort was the chairman of the campaign!!!

    Days without being a global embarrassment: 0.

  2. Nicole says:

    Actual child as the leader. WTF
    Also loved that picture of all men deciding if women should get basic healthcare. We are so progressive yall

    • Esmom says:

      I know. I’m sick at the mockery these guys are making not only of healthcare but…everything. During the Gorsuch nomination when the “would you rather” nonsense came up I almost flipped at their smug little giggles.

      • Nicole says:

        I mean it seems fitting. They are giggling because they won bigot and they can do all this cool stuff like collapse the insurance market! Because Obama was a big meany!
        Meanwhile the world is laughing at us because we are a international embarrassment

      • Kitten says:

        They are so repulsive. And now Graham is threatening to use the nuclear option to force Gorsuch’s SCJ confirmation. I f*cking hate these people.

      • Esmom says:

        Omg, Kitten, I’ve lost track but last I heard I thought the Dems had a chance to block the confirmation. For the seat that should be Garland’s. I’m sick.

        On a completely unrelated note, after 15 years with no pets, I am the proud mama of a new kitten! So excited to pick her up from the shelter tonight. We’ve been getting the house ready with gear and food and toys in giddy anticipation…

      • doofus says:

        Esmom, congrats on your new kitteh! good for you for giving a needy animal a home.

      • Esmom says:

        Thanks, doofus :)

      • Kitten says:

        Esmom! That is so awesome about your new baby kitty! This administration is sucking the life out of me and making me forget about the things I love most, like animals and music.

        Last night I went out with friends to see live music and it briefly made me forget about the world going to shit. I hope your new kitten sooths the sole as much as last night did for me. It’s important that we remember to make time for then people and things we love right now in the midst of all this chaos.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Congratulations on the new kittycat. And also for rescuing. Big applause!!

      • Kitten says:

        *soul not sole

        (sorry it was a late night)

      • Lady D says:

        Rescuing animals elevates you to rock star status Esmom,(not that you weren’t before) congrats on your new family member. You are going to laugh so much.

      • Esmom says:

        Thanks, all. She’s not a new baby, about 9 months old, but still on the small side and playful and frisky. It’s fun to see my teen boys so excited and loving. It does help to have these sweet moments during the crazy sh^tstorm known as Trump.

      • Nicole says:

        Graham forces the nuclear option and the GOP torpedoes any hope of retaining 2018 seats. They really don’t want to force that option esp with the investigations happening

      • Kitten says:

        @Nicole-I doubt the GOP cares about losing seats at this point. The Dems would need a LOT of things to go right in order to take back Congress in the mid-terms. Also, I’m not sure I have a lot of faith in Dems turning up in their local mid-terms to vote, not after this election. But who knows…maybe the resistance movement will still be in full-force next year.

        But I don’t think that the current GOP cares much about the liberal voters nor their conservative constituents. They want Gorsuch and as we know from how they treated Garland, they will make sure that he gets the confirmation at all cost.

      • Mumzy says:

        @Esmon–Cheers for the kitty love! My son loves our little shelter kitty, he calls her the “Mayor of Sassytown” and we laugh that, despite her tiny 6 pound size, she is totally in control of our two very large dogs, and us too. Words of advice — best toys for cats are a cardboard box and a paper bag (both large enough for them to fit in, even if barely). Our cats over the years have rarely played with actual cat toys…but boxes and paper bags, and balled up bundles of alum. foil are wonders. Cheers and enjoy!

      • Flan says:

        Merkel is the leader of the Free World to me now, not this child.

      • Jessica says:

        Congrats on the kitteh! We’re the proud parents of two Siamese. Re toys: their dad buys them everything, but boxes and bags are the favorites, as another commenter noted. Enjoy!!

      • mary mary says:

        Nicole. I don’t believe the world is laughing at America, as much as they are laughing at the huge embarrassing leader of our country.

        It is an anomaly in American politics, as the worst selection in an election and this is what, not only America, but the world has to contend with.

        We didn’t all choose and vote for this embarrassment, and I refuse to believe that we are all being a laughing stock for the ignorance and assistance that enabled this bunch the keys to the White House.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      Where was Ivanka? Since she cares so much about working women?

      Oh, right, in Aspen. ON VACATION.

      • FLORC says:

        It’s called selective apathy and it sets off a rage inside me.
        If I take issue with people in the spotlight it’s not about their hair or clothes or makeup. It’s their high level of apathy.
        If they say they care and they’re going to do things, do it! Do all you can that is within your power. Or shut up, sit down, and don’t get in the way of someone who will deliver.

        I work directly in women’s Healthcare as a lot of you might know. And I’m seeing the fear in most ladies on their future of being able to find available future care. Never mind being able to afford it. Will it even be in existence?

        Also, why I’ve been silent lately. Sends me into a frenzy.

      • Green Valley says:

        Let’s not fall into apathy ourselves. Call your reps, your state’s GOP office, and if you have an R state governor, call that office too. Tell the the AMA is against the bill as well.

        And don’t give up on the resistance. Caroline O wrote a good thread on how regimes can undermine people’s spirits.

      My thoughts exactly, Nicole. My personal favorite nickname for 45 is Geriatric Toddler, because it’s so accurate, but Bigly Boy is excellent too.

      Congrats Esmom! Hope you have so much fun and a long kitty lifetime of happiness with your new girl!

    • doofus says:

      that picture was so shocking.

      a bunch of men making decisions about what’s best for women in the area of healthcare.

      • Mumzy says:

        What is with the first picture of him in the truck with balled fists? His skin looks as though he has greenish brown scale in places. Is that just an odd photo effect or is his inner reptile bursting forth? He looks like a special effects evil villain about to burst in a very gruesome way. Seriously, anyone…what *is* that?

    • Rachel says:

      Yet, when female members of Congress try to discuss the actual physiological aspects of being a woman, the men get all uncomfortable and don’t want to hear it. So you want to make laws concerning my body, but you don’t want to hear about my period because ewww that’s yucky.

  3. Jenns says:

    That last picture is Trump’s presidency in a nutshell. He’s the driver, we’re the cargo and he’s taking us straight towards hell.

  4. Insomniac says:

    Someone on Twitter captioned that pic where he looks like he’s yelling “Looks like someone found out Furiosa made off with his best breeder wives.” I laughed for five minutes straight. Especially because I had Fury Road on at the time.

  5. grabbyhands says:

    Wait, was he really wearing a pin that said “I heart trucks”?

    This is cracking me up probably more than it should.

  6. Esmom says:

    That photo of Trump in the truck with his fists clenched, I have no words.

    What a day yesterday. I’m off work this week and instead of doing something relaxing or fun I just stuck like glue to the news all day. I was exhausted and zombie-like by the evening.

    I guess I can’t blame Nancy Pelosi for her “rookie error” comment but I sorta wish she’d just stay above the fray.

  7. original kay says:

    They clapped because he actually got his bigly fat ass up into the truck. God, what a view that was.
    I’ll never cleanse my mind’s eye.

  8. MunichGirl says:

    Seriously, he needs to go on a diet, he’s so fat. He’s gained so much weight since he moved into the WH.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      Wrong! His ass was fat before he moved to the white house. He is so fat Air force one needs refueling in mid air to make it to Mar A Lago in Florida. His ass is so fat it almost matches the size of his ego.

      • Guest says:

        “He is so fat Air force one needs refueling in mid air to make it to Mar A Lago in Florida.” – LMAO!

      • doofus says:

        oh, are we doing “your momma” jokes on him?

        “he’s so fat that when he sits around the house, he really sits AROUND the house.”

        “he’s so fat that when he backs up, you hear ‘beep beep beep’.”

        “he’s so fat that he sat on his iPhone and turned it into an iPad.”

        who’s next?

      • hnmmom says:

        “He’s so fat they are going to have to send a police van instead of a patrol car when they go arrest him at the White House”?

      Reaffirming once again that any man who wants Viagra should have to go before a panel of judgmental teenage girls who will decide whether he’s “doable.” And if they think he’s gross and old, well, no viagra from him.

      • Erica says:

        I never understood how the men are quick to say we don’t wanna pay for your birth control but for all men that wanna take Viagra we will pay cause having a stiff one is more important .

  11. mrspanda says:

    Hahahaa I love ”Bigly boy loves bigly trucks” :) This is the most engaged and animated I’ve seen him during his entire ”presidency”.

    • Kitten says:

      I lol’d at that headline and I really enjoyed that Kaiser continued with the “bigly boy” narrative.
      Sometimes it helps to laugh when you’re reading about the destruction of our country.

  12. IlsaLund says:

    I think Lawrence O’Donnell described him accurately:

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell went after President Donald Trump on Thursday night for giving up so quickly on health care reform. Trump reportedly told Republicans in Congress that he was done negotiating and that if the bill didn’t pass on Friday, he’d leave Obamacare in place.

    “This is the laziest, most ignorant president in history,” O’Donnell said on “The Last Word.” “President Obama never once said something like this in the crusade to get that thing passed because he knew how to stay with it and get it passed.”

    • Nancy says:

      If at first you don’t succeed, quit. He has been in the crooked (I borrowed his word) business world so long, all he knows how to do is wheel and deal. This bill has to fail. The people who finally got insurance can’t have it ripped away by these thugs. These men have no souls. Keep throwing out positive vibes people, that this bill fails, it has to.

    • original kay says:

      We knew who he was, and now is supporters know. When it gets tough, he declares bankruptcy, gets loans from shady banks and refuses to pay people.

      This time, he is refusing to pay the US, in the form of healthcare. It still amazes me daily people did not make the connections. Critical thinking skills are lost on his supporters. They all need Sudoku.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        Yes. And don’t forget, he had his rich daddy to back him and to repeatedly bail him out whenever he screwed up, right up until he was in his 40′s. He’s a terrible businessman – or maybe “businesschild” would be more accurate!

    • Megan says:

      How is he “letting” Obamacare stay in place. It’s the law of the land. If they don’t vote, Congress is choosing to keep the law.

      As for Schumer filibustering Gorsuch, I’m not buying it. It’s all posturing while he figures out how to let a vote go through without enraging the base.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    That picture with the fists , we did not need to see his constipation face.

    Essential benefits – the maternity care is getting the most attention but there is so much more that this would allow insurance to drop and still call itself “healthcare.” Most importantly: ER, ambulatory or outpatient, and inpatient hospitalization. Basically anything involving a hospital. I had 3 of my 4 breast cancer surgeries and my chemo through ambulatory care – that wouldn’t be covered. Nor would my overnight stay for surgery or the surgery itself. Or the mammogram or ultrasound. Or the drugs. Or the weekly lab work I had during treatment and quarterly since. Or the PT I’ve had to have four times to help with the chronic pain.

    Mental health services could also be excluded.

    These people are evil.

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously evil. I can’t believe this is happening. And yet his supporters seem to keep on supporting him.

    • swak says:

      I have no words for all this. Hugs to you for all you’ve been through and are still going through.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      I cling to the belief that there is a special place in hell for Cheeto Mussolini and his supporters.

      • Lightpurple says:

        And within that a special ring of Hell for Ryan, Price, who claims to be a MD, and Diane Black, who claims to be a nurse – the three architects of this mess.

    • Kitten says:

      LP I am so f*cking sorry. JFC I am so angry for you… and ALL of us. These people are a special kind of terrible, the likes of which our country has never seen.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Thanks, Kitten, I’m okay. I’ve had my treatment. Just pointing out what others will have to face.

        And most of us don’t choose our healthplan, our employers do.

      • Kitten says:

        I just shared a bunch of the info you guys posted here, which was then shared four times by friends on FB. Thanks so much for the information. Admittedly, I’ve been a bit unclear as to what Trumpcare really covers (which is nothing, apparently) so this is great to get the word out.

    • damejudi says:

      Are Republicans in office aware that men get diagnosed with breast cancer?

      SMH.

    • Megan says:

      @LP So sorry you had to go through so much, but I appreciate you using your experience to illustrate what other women will be facing if this horrific bill passes.

    • Nancy says:

      Lightpurple: Good vs. Evil. Even if it seems as though evil is breathing down our necks and our world is falling apart, the good, such as YOU will always win. You post with more intelligence and wit and integrity than they could ever dream about. You own them. You have been through what these pussy boys couldn’t survive. I stand by you and support you and respect you.

  14. Giddy says:

    Spicer’s descriptions of how very limited Manafort’s role was are getting more and more ridiculous. Manafort was campaign chairman for five months and ran the convention, but supposedly Trump barely knew him. I expect Spicer to next claim that Manafort was just a stranger that Trump once stood next to at a urinal. Ewww, I just made myself a little sick.

  15. SusanneToo says:

    Just a few of the things trumpcare would not cover: hospitilization, maternity/newborn care, prescription drugs among other things.
    http://twitter.com/gregpak/status/844742578352328704

    POS Mulvaney is on CBS right now saying it is states’ responsibility to require insurers to cover those things. Question: What about states that don’t do that? Answer: change your state requirements.
    Easy to do when you’re suffering from a serious disease, A$$hole.

    • Kitten says:

      So it covers absolutely nothing, basically?

      • Megan says:

        The idea is that the law does not mandate coverage so you, as the consumer, can pick and choose what coverage you need. Rather than spreading the cost of certain types of coverage across the market, this allows insurance companies to discriminate based on age, gender, and pre-existing conditions.

        Who benefits from this? Old white men. Who is writing the law? Old white men. Go figure.

      • Kitten says:

        Thank you, Megan. Thanks again for all the info, guys. I f*cking hate the GOP for deliberately NOT making this bill transparent and easy for the American people to understand.

      • Lady D says:

        It’s a group called the Conservatives that are pushing Trump to totally gut healthcare coverage, right? I thought at first those guys were on the side of right, but they’re almost worse than the republicans.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @LadyD. They’re Republicans, just ultra-right. Many are Tea Partiers.

      • LA Elle says:

        Remember when the GOP complained about some of the bills during the Obama Administration being too long and complicated?

      • Esmom says:

        SusanneToo, yes. They are the people who mostly backed Ted Cruz and hated Trump but now, shockingly, are putting party above country. But also clashing a bit with the Bannon faction.

      • Lightpurple says:

        The problem is most people really don’t know what health care entails or the costs and how they are calculated. You break a leg, you go to the ER and you think it will all be fixed but there are so many different pieces involved in putting your leg back together – including stuff we really don’t think about the the hospital laundry and the heating bill and the gloves the workers wear. And the people voting on this know nothing either, probably didn’t read the Trumpcare bill and probably never read the ACA, even though they’ve had 7 years to read it. They just know the ACA must be bad because the GOP says so. They think Trumpcare covers pre-existing conditions because Ryan says so but it doesn’t because if your condition requires blood work for monitoring and the plan doesn’t cover laboratory services, you’ve been denied care. My sister is a policy manager for MassHealth. She screams whenever she sees Price or Ryan and I think she challenged Diane Black to a wrestling match.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Outpatient care (which is just about everything you go to a hospital for these days), mammograms, prostate exams, pap smears, throat cultures to test for strep, ER visits for broken bones or concussions or communicable diseases or gunshot wounds, physical therapy, and mental health services.

  18. RussianBlueCat says:

    So is this overhaul of healthcare supposed to make the United States into some sort of “survival of the fittest” society? I honestly do not understand how some politicians can be in favour of a healthcare system which hurts more people than it can help. This is like something Charles Dickens would have written about. Just cruel

    • Lightpurple says:

      And last night, Pete Sessions was complaining on the floor of the House about people complaining that they were going too fast because he spent 13 hours the day before, 3 of which were with Nancy Pelosi, and he thought that was more than enough time to spend on this.

      • RussianBlueCat says:

        If debating something that could affect the lives of millions of Americans is too tiring(or he was most likely bored) for Sessions. Then maybe he should retire and let someone who actually cares about people take his place. That goes for any politician who wants to rush this bill through without proper debate.

  19. Eric says:

    And all the new pieces of the DeathCare bill would still leave 24m off of healthcare. It’s like the Keystone Kops are in the GOP.

    Manafort has been downgraded to that “gentleman.” WHAT?

    Funny how Roger Stone double-lawyered up. Why would he do that?

    Waiting for more Russian dissidents to die. Emperor Zero’s crew must be scared s#itless because loose ends wind up dead in Putin’s world.

    • Megan says:

      Manafort and Stone better watch their backs. We know how Putin deals with people who know too much.

    • Kitten says:

      I need to start doing meditation or something to deal with the murderous rage. I’m not even kidding. I have never in my life had these evil (yet wholly justifiable) thoughts about fellow humans.

      But are these people even human? They’re just a bunch of f*cking monsters.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        @Kitten – in all seriousness, my levels of rage against this willful, utter destruction of our country by this entire orange/republican sh*t show has cause my blood pressure to skyrocket. Every time I see Cheeto, his family, Ryan, that dong head head of HHS (who is a doctor, FFS!), Devin Nunes, et al (oh, I forgot the defrocked priest, Pence), I literally yell out “F*ck You!”

        I have NEVER felt such a need to wish ill upon someone.

      • SusanneToo says:

        I used to be a quiet, shy, retiring person. Now I channel Furiosa.

      • Kitten says:

        Same. It might sound silly but just knowing people share my rage is comforting. Because I don’t even feel like myself these days, PunkyMomma.

      • Megan says:

        @Kitten last night my husband and I were talking about how neither of us has ever felt such hate and rage before. It is a very uncomfortable feeling.

      • LA Elle says:

        I’ve been reading books about compassion and tolerance, and I’m surprised by how much it’s helping. I’m working my way through How to Be Compassionate by the Dalai Lama right now.

        I’ve also been writing to elected officials for doing the right thing and thanking them. It’s nice way to remember the good things.

      • HappyMom says:

        I get it. It’s so frustrating and scary.

      • Lady D says:

        I think you guys are amazing. You not only encouraged everyone to write, fax, or email their congressman and senators, you led by example, and it worked! I am in awe that your efforts countrywide managed to sink his healthcare bill and destroy his travel ban. You are living proof that speaking up and stepping forward works. Your Women’s March had the attention and participation of the world. If you can keep your blood pressure down and keep this pressure up, the senate will be democrat-dominated next year.
        The first comment on this thread about days without being a global embarrassment made me laugh and feel sorry for you at the same time. I wish you luck.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      They are bona fide sociopaths. Many, like Paul Ryan, are followers of Ayn Rand. I believe she is their true messiah. Ryan used her philosophy to craft his budgets and the health care bill. Read up on her kind of crazy and see how many other of these Repubs also laud her. The Mercer billionaire is a huge follower of Rand’s philosophy also. It is a philosophy that justifies the rise of selfish strongmen and the demise of “the weak.” Among other evils. Google “Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand” for more info.

  20. Juls says:

  21. Abbess Tansy says:

    It makes me so sad and infuriated that these people who are supposed to represent our interests in government, take care of us, treat universal healthcare as an abstract concept and not as a human right. They want to take what should be the backbone and basic elements of care which cost nothing to cover, and deny even that to people. Just cruel. Our government representatives call themselves proud to be Americans, yet by their actions they clearly hate Americans. Greed, power, money, and control are the only words they understand. Just cruel.

    • Esmom says:

      It is cruel. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m appalled at his supporters for being ok with this. The lack of humanity and compassion among my fellow citizens is what might be killing me most right now. One Trump supporting woman I know has a son who has faced cancer four times in his short life. She’s very vocal about her Christian faith, too. I’m just floored that she can go along with this madness.

    And of course he cannot ever miss an opportunity to toot his (own) horn. God, he looked like an idiot screwing his face up and pretending to drive. Yeah, that’s what truck drivers look like when they’re driving though probably more at the start of a 12 hour shift, or maybe at the end when they’re fighting fatigue.

    I kind of liked seeing Nancy Pelosi give the rookie some advice on how to bring a bill to the floor. She was talking to Trump but it was really more or as applicable to Paul Ryan. He could not have screwed this up any harder if he tried. And let’s face it they really didn’t try that hard. Seven years of bitching then they take a whole two weeks to chuck something together that they then admit is more about taxes than healthcare? How lazy and cynical does one have to be?

    Essential Health Benefits – cut those and tell me what is left to insure? Sen Roberts was less joking about breast cancer than the disease these politicians seem to have which compels them to say stupid stuff to win “soundbite of the day” so it can be played 100x on cable news. He failed to note in his apology that men also get breast cancer.

    By the Devin Nunes thing, I’m thinking you mean the thing called Devin Nunes? What an absolute twat. Imagine if Eliot Ness was tipping off NYC mobsters… Lately everyday I’ve been saying a quick thank you to the universe for Adam Schiff. Hmmm, former asst US Attorney v career politician with Degree in Agriculture. Nunes is complicit in a cover up.

    Schemer’s filibuster move may or may not just be theatre but at this point it has to be done. Or as one commentator suggested the Democrats just don’t turn up with the explanation being they cannot in good conscience move forward while the Trump Administration is being investigated for Treason.

    Spicer can have his hissy fit, nothing new here. I know how Trump can sleep at night – but I really wonder how Spicer can. Has to be chemically induced surely, though god knows it must be exhausting lying and bubbling for answers all day,

    What happened to the ultimate deal maker? The king has no clothes, his butt is showing. In the real world, DT was taking credit for everyone’s accomplishments and sticking his name on all the shiny objects, eg, buildings that others build. Now he was willing to stick his name Paul Ryan’s stupid health care bill but it backfired. He was calling himself the “closure”, he couldn’t close this. DT conman is a fraud now everyone can see for themselves, except his stubborn followers.

      Omg, I’m so sick of winning!!! When is this winning going to stop, lol. I remember DT saying only he alone can fix this country, WHAT happened!! Can’t pass a health care bill?? Ha, ha, ha, ha.

    • LA Elle says:

      I like how Trump is blaming the Democrats for the health care bill’s failure. Um, yeah, Donald, that’s what they wanted.

    So happy this bill failed. Small victory but much needed!!!

    • Lady D says:

      Congrats, congrats, one for the good guys. I thought for sure his horror-show bill would pass. Every thing else that could go wrong has.

      I’m so happy for all Americans, but especially women. The GOP war on women was never so evident as when the essential services were being axed. Many of you on this site have expressed what the ACA has done for you and your families and how scared you were to see it repealed. I’m quite relieved for all of you. 🙂😘

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      Felt so much relief when I came home this evening and saw that it had failed.

    • TheOtherOne says:

      Yayyyyyy. Small victory for all of us. Thanks to all of you who keep me sane and motivated. Keep resisting.

    Trumpcare crashed and burned without even going to The House for a vote. This, of course, is wonderful news and comical considering Republicans were screaming for the last seven years that they were going to repeal and replace Obamacare. When they had they chance they failed epically. I swear a bunch of high schoolers taking U.S. Government could run the country better than this current administration.

    Tr*mpcare fails! Now look for Paul Ryan to be pushed out of the speaker role and replaced with a true Tr*mp toady. It’s well documented that Bannon hates Ryan and has Br*etbart publishing articles about how weak he is. Sometimes I wonder if Tr*mp didn’t advocate for the healthcare repeal so early just to sink Ryan (Bannon was actually quoted as saying he wanted to see Ryan gone by spring). Everything involves some shady deal.
