Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Trump’s wiretapping claims and the new Republican health care plan,and concludes that we’re all PRONGED! Prong is Sean Spicer’s new safe-word. Faced with uncomfortable questions about the health care plan that fulfills none, zip, zero, not even one of Trump’s promises, Spicer invokes The Prong! Calm down everyone. What we see now is merely the first prong. Prong two and three will be tremendous – as Trump often says,’believe me!’
Like the Easter Bunny, you can believe Trump or not…Neither one is really going to drop chocolate eggs in your garden…Although someone reliable will stand in for the bunny. I apologize – poor comparison. Sometimes we are to believe Trump’s tweets. However, when Trump tweeted about wiretapping, we weren’t meant to take it literally! We do know that we cannot believe Trump on his healthcare promises.Oddly, Trump frequently promised no one would die in the streets, but he didn’t mention that 24 million would be dropped and Medicaid would be on the chopping block. I’m not holding my breath on the ‘clean streets’ promise either.
One person who’s delighted about the plan is a bubbly and excited Paul Ryan, seen here telling Bret Baier how ‘encouraged’ he is! In a ‘Bye Felicia’ moment, Baier replies “If you’re encouraged by this, what kind of news makes you dis-couraged?” Seth invokes the evil, money-grubbing Mr. Burns from the Simpsons, to ask Ryan,: “Is that the E-word you were searching for?”
