You know that move where you have your best friend break up with your girlfriend for you? Possibly by slipping a note in her locker? Keep that in mind, because President Trump tweeted us yesterday to make sure that we all watched Jeanine Pirro’s show last night.

Ok, so let’s see what the Judge has to…
“Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the House. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill. Speaker Ryan, you come in with all your swagger and experience and you sell ’em a bill of goods, which ends up a complete and total failure, and you allow our president in his first 100 days to come out of the box like that, based on what?”
I mean, of course the President sent his other friend to say “it’s not true, he still loves you” and followed up with this…
Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!

I’m sure we’ll be discussing this on the show this week. For today, let’s focus on the colossal failure that was #RyanCare (see Nancy Pelosi Thinks We Should Read #RyanCare Before Passing… and Ted Cruz Destroys Paul Ryan’s Ridiculous “Solution” to Obamacare), because Judge Jeannie is spot on. For the past seven years, Republicans were elected to Congress to repeal ObamaCare. The Democrat Party under President Obama was the losingest party ever, up to and including over 900 local seats, almost entirely because of ObamaCare. So Republicans, when they finally have everything they need and after seven years to have a bill ready, they give us… ObamaCare?
And use the same tactics to ram their bill down our throats that we spent seven years blasting Democrats for?
And Paul Ryan is supposed to be the smart one?
The only thing that happened is that Paul Ryan has been exposed as a fraud. A fraud, who never wanted the Speaker’s job in the first place. But let’s be fair here. President Trump has been complicit with this fraud when convenient and tried to distance himself when it’s not. There’s plenty of blame to go around. Not to mention the fact that, I hated it when the Clintons had CNN doing their bidding for them and I don’t like it when Trump has FoxNews doing the same thing. Consistency: it’s what’s for dinner.
This was a really crappy week for Republicans. So enjoy the one sliver of light, in the epic victories of Neil Gorsuch.
