A round up of Trumpian events 🍊🍊🍊

Hmm, maybe. Seems like it could just be pure venality.

It’s weird that so far the reaction I’ve seen has been β€œβ€¦welp”.

After all the vicious fights over the ACA, they just quietly removed over 16 million people from their healthcare in a run-around clause tucked into a tax bill. And there’s absolutely nothing we can do about it but not have insurance anymore.

What pisses me off is how pleased Trump seems to be about lying about this, knowing that it would anger most Americans. He’s literally celebrating the fact that he screwed over Americans, and thinks nobody knew. His exact quote:
β€œWe didn’t want to bring it up. I told people specifically 'be quiet with the fake news media because I don’t want them talking too much about it. Because I didn’t know how people would - but now that it’s approved, I can say the individual mandate has been repealed.”


#4062

We’re the bad guys.


#4063

JFC.

Dogwhistles are so 2015.


#4064

Hey, the rest of the world. When she says β€œAmerica” and β€œAmericans”, she means Donald Trump. Not the rest of us, honestly. Just him.


#4065

Absolutely disgusting.

I’m not even convinced this (chain migration) is a real thing.


#4066

It’s a verfied account, fwiw, and it’s not unbelievable from this group.

Even if fake, they’re probably thinking it.


#4067

Oh, I’m sure it’s a real tweet. I was questioning if this so called chain migration is really a thing.


#4068

Ah. That. Probably not, not the way they’re claiming, anyways.


#4069

Depends on your opinion of FAIR since they are pretty much the single citation for chain migration figures outside other β€œnonprofits” using β€œreal” β€œdata.”


#4070

Really puts this past year in perspective. Setting aside all the sensational things that have been going on, real damage has been done.


#4071

This is fine.


#4072

a couple of interesting stories in newsweek, (to give us false hope)

#4075

Quite an honor for a trumpite to be our ambassador to the court of the House of Orange.


#4076

another case of the fox guarding the henhouse:

Slate: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Has a New Mission: Protecting America From β€œBurdensome Regulations”

Did the administration have the gall to argue that the EPA protects the business environment, or is that just implied?
