Stephen Colbert Tap Dances on the Grave of Trump's Calamitous Health Care Bill
The American Health Care Bill, at least in its present form, is dead and buried. On Monday night, "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert tap danced on its grave.
"The White House tried to get this thing through,” he noted. “They sort of tried to swing their balls at members of the conservative Freedom Caucus who were resisting this.”
Without the support of several dozen Republicans, the vote for the bill, pushed from Thursday to Friday, was ultimately cancelled.
“So, it’s a failure. Who does Trump blame for this failure?” Colbert asked.
The opposing party, of course. The "Late Show" host found this especially rich.
â€¨â€¨“Not enough votes to get a majority,” he mused. “Well, that didn’t stop you from becoming president.”
Perhaps Trump supporters are starting to realize maybe they "can't trust a fast-talking city slicker who rolls into town promising a magic solution" to all their medical needs.
