USA Politics Now has ridiculously claimed that the failure of President Donald Trump’s healthcare bill this week must have had more to it. This site could not fathom that Republicans might vote against the idea of repealing Obamacare because it was a terrible bill.
The headline read:
“BREAKING: Paul Ryan Had A Secret Meeting An Hour After He Killed The Healthcare Bill”
It has surprised even right-wing sites like these that even Republicans might have some kind of conscience when it comes to leaving more than 20 million people without care. So the totally made up article decided to report on a ‘conspiracy’ – an ‘alternative’ fact, or theory – that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) met with associates of President Barack Obama after rejecting the bill.
The insane report claims Ryan met with Obama’s former agent and driver at a private address in Washington straight after rejecting Trump’s disastrous health bill. They even wrongly quote “Walter Lyons” (not a real person) of the Examiner (once a real but now defunct outlet, but likely doesn’t exist now) as saying to his friend from the “Federalist Papers” (a set of founding papers written by three of the Founding Fathers in 1787):
“He was full of smiles. It was as if he had just accomplished a mission that he had been working on for months.”
The ridiculous story then accuses Paul Ryan of being part of Deep State (a fictitious conspiracy theory involving President Obama and a secret, shadow government), wonders if he has been promised monetary and political rewards for voting against Trump, and then even goes as far to say he is a ‘traitor,’ and that Ryan will get a “percentage” of the “royalties” that Obama gets each year Obamacare is around.
How about he just hated the idea?
There is definitely trouble in paradise for the Republicans, but did they consider for a minute that perhaps fellow Republicans could simply not support a half-baked scheme that seemed more about the petty dissolving of an Obama bill, rather than providing care for the people?
Also during campaigning we could all see the massive divisions within the party. Many Republicans did not support Trump for office, including Ryan. He is crude, offensive and with no political experience. Trump also insulted almost everyone he ran against in the primaries.
Is it really any wonder that a man with no political experience whatsoever, who is famous as a reality TV star and supposed business man, might not have support of fellow party members?
Trump is furious about the bill not being supported of course. It is embarrassing for Trump as he is on the record saying how ‘easy’ this would all be.
He has tweeted out this ominous threat:
ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!
