BREAKING: Obamacare Repeal Bill Pulled

BREAKING: Obamacare Repeal Bill Pulled

There is breaking news in Washington, DC regarding the controversial Republican healthcare repeal bill to replace Obamacare.

According to Politico, as of about 15 minutes ago, House leaders “pulled the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare just ahead of a planned vote.”

This comes fresh on the heels of many people taking issue with the bill that would have replaced Obamacare. This was due, much in part, to the fact that it was going to end up depleting millions of people of their healthcare coverage.

Sorry, GOP, but it looks like (for now at least) Obamacare is here to stay.

Something tells me Barack and Michelle are currently popping the cork to a nice bottle of champagne.

Stay tuned for more updates on this breaking report.

Weekly Trump Dump – 10 Most Outrageous Things President Donald Trump Said And Did This Week

Weekly Trump Dump – 10 Most Outrageous Things President Donald Trump Said And Did This Week

It’s been another week in Trump’s America and we’re here with your weekly therapeutic review of the ten most outrageous things President Donald Trump said and did this week. Let’s get into it:

    • In a press conference with the Chancellor of Germany, all seemed to be going well and no outlandish comments were made. This was until the end, though, when Trump was asked about the wiretapping claims he made about former President Barack Obama. Rather than own that he made the accusation, Trump told the reporter that, “you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox” as a lawyer on Fox had been the first to suggest this had happened.
    • Speaking of Fox, Trump complimented them on his Twitter, while at the same time getting a dig in at one of his favorite targets- CNN. Specifically, he tweeted that, “Just heard Fake News CNN is doing polls again despite the fact that their election polls were a WAY OFF disaster. Much higher ratings at Fox.”
    • Trump also took to Twitter to blast the Democrats for making up the “Russian story,” tweeting that, “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!”
    • He wasn’t done talking about the Russian “story,” though, as he tweeted later in the week that, “Just watched the totally biased and fake news reports of the so-called Russia story on NBC and ABC. Such dishonesty!”
    • After the tragic terrorist attack in LondonTrump offered condolences via his Twitter account, but the way he did it was sort of bizarre. Specifically, he tweeted about speaking to London’s Prime Minister to offer condolences and how she is “strong and doing very well.” Meanwhile, former President Obama tweeted a more appropriate and Presidential message, writing that, “My heart goes out to the victims and their families in London. No act of terror can shake the strength and resilience of our British ally.”
    • While Trump didn’t offer condolences to the families/victims in London, when he found out an American life was lost, he tweeted, “A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack. My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends.”
    • In an interview with Time Magazine, Trump talked about the wiretapping, bizarrely claiming that, “When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes. Because a wiretapping is, you know today it is different than wire tapping. It is just a good description. But wiretapping was in quotes. What I’m talking about is surveillance.”
    • In the same interview with Time, Trump took- ironically- time to boast again about his Presidential win, noting that, “Remember they said there was no way to get to 270? Well I ended up at 306. I had election night, 306. But there was no way to get to, in fact I went to Maine four times, four times I went to Maine, because I had to get one vote, because there was no way to get to 270, but I ended up getting to 306.” 
    • Trump also defended some of the outlandish things he’s said to Time– including that Ted Cruz‘s father was with Lee Harvey Oswald, asking Time, “Why do you say that I have to apologize? I’m just quoting the newspaper…”
    • Finally, not to harp too much on the Time interview, but what Trump closed out his interview with is too priceless not to close out our Trump Dump with. Specifically, he claimed, “I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not. You know. Say hello to everybody OK?” 

With that wrap up- which sounds much like a school aged child saying nana boo boo- we bid you ado, and will see you next week for the Trump Dump. We shudder at the thought of all that Trump will dump on us in the week to come.

Donald Trump- Investigate The Clinton Campaign’s Contact With Russia!

Donald Trump- Investigate The Clinton Campaign’s Contact With Russia!

Yesterday, it was reported that the F.B.I. was going to be investigating if members of President Donald Trump‘s campaign had worked with Russia to aid with the results of the past election. James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director, stated that this will be pursued “no matter how long that takes.” Additionally- and as a side note- the F.B.I. also refuted the notion that President Barack Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower.

Trump then took to Twitter last night to tweet a new allegation, stating, “What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?”

He also took time to call out CNN again for doing polls regarding him, tweeting, “Just heard Fake News CNN is doing polls again despite the fact that their election polls were a WAY OFF disaster. Much higher ratings at Fox.”

As we said in our weekly “Trump Dump,” it’s always an interesting week in Trump land and, already, this week is bringing lots of content to discuss, and it’s only Tuesday morning.

BREAKING: Donald Trump Calls Out Democrats For Making Up Russian Story

BREAKING: Donald Trump Calls Out Democrats For Making Up Russian Story

It wouldn’t be a Monday if we didn’t start the week off with an early morning Twitter rant from President Donald Trump.

While there has been a vast amount of talk surrounding Russia and their potential interference in the election- as well as talk of Trump (and some of his cabinet’s) relationship with them thus far- Trump took to Twitter this morning to put the Democrats on blast regarding it.

James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia,” Trump began, referring to President Barack Obama‘s Director of National Intelligence claiming there was no evidence (while he held his position) to support collusion claims between Trump’s campaign and Russia before the election. “This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!”

Trump didn’t stop there, though, adding that, “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!”

“The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information,” he wrapped with tweeting. “Must find leaker now!”

Grab your coffee, Dirty Readers, as it’s going to be a long week.

Trump Recites Irish Proverb At St. Patrick’s Day Event That Wasn’t An Irish Proverb

Trump Recites Irish Proverb At St. Patrick’s Day Event That Wasn’t An Irish Proverb

Leave it to President Donald Trump to always keep us entertained and having something new to talk about, even if it revolves around a holiday.

This past Thursday, at a St. Patrick’s Day luncheon with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, Trump made remarks where he quoted what he purported to be an Irish proverb. The only issue was that it was, in fact, not an Irish proverb, and many people of Irish descent immediately started calling him out on social media for it.

What Trump specifically stated was, “As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of that proverb — and this is a good one, this is one I like. I’ve heard it for many, many years and I love it. ‘Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.'”

While he was called out for it, a White House spokesperson defended him to The Hill, stating the following about the proverb: “(It was) originally supplied in an email on March 8 by the State Department via [the National Security Council] as building blocks in advance of this event. These building blocks were supplied in the context of the Shamrock Ceremony and were ultimately used in the prepared remarks for the luncheon.”

Interestingly, when people started researching the “proverb,” they stumbled upon a poem that had the same lines verbatim by Albasheer Adam Alhassan, a Nigerian poet who happens to be Muslim. 

Social media users also noted that, when googling “famous Irish proverb,” the phrase did pop up, put on a picture with a shamrock.

Perhaps whoever passed the “proverb” onto Trump should have done a quick double check to ensure it actually was an Irish proverb. Trump’s administration is always so quick to call out “fake news” one would think they’d be hyper-aware of “fake things on the internet.”

BREAKING: President Trump Tells Press- Talk To Fox News About Wiretapping, Not Me

BREAKING: President Trump Tells Press- Talk To Fox News About Wiretapping, Not Me

Today, President Donald Trump held a press conference with Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany.

At the end, Trump answered a question regarding the tweets he had issued that called former President Barack Obama out for allegedly having Trump Tower wiretapped during the time before the election.

When asked about the wiretapping by a German reporter, Trump said, “As far as wiretapping by this past administration, at least we have something in common perhaps.”

This first part refers to reports that have surfaced that Obama also allegedly had Merke’s cell phone wiretapped in 2010. It also seems to infer Trump may still believe the wiretapping claim.

“And just to finish your question,” he continued, “we said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it.”

“That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox,” he wrapped with saying on the wiretapping. “So you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox.”

This was an interesting answer overall to the question, as it more or less diverted from the question and put the blame back on Fox News, rather than Trump taking accountability for the tweets he issued.
