Trump's Premature Congratulation

Here's a photo of Trump in May prematurely taking a victory lap on Obamacare repeal in the House. Because Trump's a policy dunce and knows nothing about our government and how it works, he apparently didn't realize that the Senate would have a whack at delivering him a death blow on his feeble attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Americans are calling this Trump's "Mission Accomplished" moment, because Trump has shown himself to be a lousy deal maker and astoundingly incompetent in accomplishing his goals.

Trump in his weakest position yet. 

Six months into the job, he has failed to unify his party, at a time when the GOP controls all of government, to pass their No. 1-priority issue. He’s proven to be a terrible dealmaker. He’s demonstrated that his grand promises to his base about repealing President Barack Obama’s signature law were empty, and that he’s more interested in showmanship than substance.

Here's a nice, quick recap of what President Elect Trump said on January 11, 2017.

President-elect Donald Trump speaks at a news cenference at Trump Tower on January 11, 2017 in New York City.

President-elect Trump on Wednesday [Jan 11, 2017] said a "repeal-and-replace" plan for Obamacare would be submitted as soon as the Senate approves his nominee, Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., for secretary of the U.S. Health and Human Services Department.

"It will be essentially simultaneously," Trump said. "The same day or the same week ... could be the same hour."

What are we waiting for? He already had a plan. When will he share it? Why are McConnell and Ryan working on a plan? Why can't they just use President Trumps plan or the one he said Sec Price had ready to go?

Unless of course he was deliberately lying to the American people, knowing full well he and Sec Price had nothing...

But of course our values voters don't care about that do they?

No they don't care about Trump's lies and And our friend skudrunner won't come here and talk about Trump's promise to repeal and replace Obamacare with something "beautiful" that's "better and less expensive and everyone will be covered!" No skud won't ever mention that because he's too busy telling us about how Mr. Obama once said you could keep your doctor if you want to with Obamacare. He's been repeating that for years now, but he has nothing to say about Trump's BIGLIEST promise to kill Obamacare and replace it with something "beautiful."

See, for the "values voters" breaking promises or lying is bad ONLY when Dems do it. If a Gooper preznit does it, they just ignore it.
