"I think for about 100 years, one of the political parties has always tried to get a safety net under people and the other party hasn't.

And now we have Obamacare, which is an enormous accomplishment.....And it started with glitches and problems -- but I love to remind people that all of our national endeavors started out badly.

World War II did not start start well, or the Highway Act, or Social Security, or the Hoover Dam.

And what happens is they get FIXED by a Congress of both parties, and that's what should happen now.

And if one party says "no", then they should anticipate having the sick and the dying and the dead on their lawns."

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
