Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Trump’s outlandish claims of wiretapping, and the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. The Republican plan in no way resembles the campaign promises Trump made before he learned: “Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated!”
While no public hearings were held for the plan, it’s enlightening to look in on the marathon policy-making sessions. We learn that Republicans resent paying for pre-natal care, clearly a luxurious extra for both fetus and mother. Republicans bitterly complain that doesn’t benefit them in the least, having been hatched somewhere. But don’t even think about charging more for their erection set prescriptions! Also on the table; – I swear, was the possibility of taxing ice cream, and in all seriousness – of taxing the sun.. Seth observes: “Yeah! Why don’t we tax the sun? Is it that we already know that an orange ball of gas would never pay its taxes?”
Trump is vague on the details, telling a crowd: “You know what the plan is…This is the plan.”
Paul Ryan is utilizing Trump’s special talents, tapping him to ‘sell’ the plan. Trump has already planned a pizza and bowling party, although I didn’t know that Chuck e Cheese caters. Then again, in the rush and confusion, it’s possible Trump mixed the event up with Barron’s birthday – and a lot of bemused kids will find themselves seated in a topless, cigar bar.
