How sweet it would be to see Donald Trump’s face when he encounters the Wednesday edition of the New York Daily News!
Yep, right there on the cover they’ve got the so-called president as Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movies, and you gotta admit it’s very appropriate:
The Daily News hasn’t been shy about comparing Trump to some less than flattering figures. They’ve depicted him as the Antichrist, a zombie clown, a pervert, a Putin sympathizer, and a regular clown. All of which, it should be said, are really not that much of a stretch.
Why turn Trump into Dr. Evil? Well, it all has to do with his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a giant turd sandwich which has taken on the name of Trumpcare. The Daily News notes:
“President Trump, with his Mini-Mes in Congress, has bald-faced scheme to pass Trumpcare at expense of city taxpayers.”
According to another New York newspaper, the New York Times, the changes to the repeal plan which were made by the administration earlier this week would only affect the state of New York, and could wind up saving $2.3 billion for local governments upstate. But it would also give the shaft to New York City, meaning that Trump is more than willing to screw his own hometown.
At latest count, it doesn’t appear the administration has the votes needed for passage in the House of Representatives, with a great deal of the opposition coming from the far right of the GOP. And Trump cannot count on a single Democratic vote to help dismantle Obamacare.
So, with the Trump team desperately needing some good news this week as hearings on the Russian connection beginning, could a failure on the healthcare bill show that Trump has zero political capital less than 100 days into his presidency? We can sure as hell hope so. Traitors deserve to lose.
