Trump: Fie on Your Health Problems; I’m Busy with North Korea!

In the undercard to Donald Trump’s idiotic “prime the pump” interview, that man in the White House invents another expression to explain his health care policy… or lack thereof:

Donald Trump signing
This is all I have to do, right? Sign stuff?

But ultimately, you know I use the expression, “If you have a bad knee, I would rather have the federal government focus on North Korea than fixing your knee” [Donald Trump, interview, The Economist, 2017.05.11].

Apparently when he finds a topic unexpectedly complicated, Trump prefers to change the topic.

While he prefers to focus on North Korea, Trump still insists everyone will have “absolute guaranteed coverage,” and he thinks insurance should cost $15 a month:

Insurance is, you’re 20 years old, you just graduated from college, and you start paying $15 a month for the rest of your life and by the time you’re 70, and you really need it, you’re still paying the same amount and that’s really insurance [Trump, 2017.05.11].

If Donald Trump can get me health insurance for $15 a month, fine, he can ignore everybody’s busted knee and focus on North Korea.

    Don the Con has very small hands. As observed in his golf shorts, his knees are also very small. While trying to steal the people’s land in Scotland he was known as that “American Wee Knee”.

  2. No one believes Donald “invented” the phrase… well, except for Kristi Noem who received the memo from Wisconsin Skippy that Don coined it, ergo it is true! (alternative fact)

  3. Oops, sorry. Comment made in ref. to “prime the pump” article.

    Word out today Drumpf wants to politicize FBI and name Cornyn of Texas as new director. That would put Marlboro Barbie as the (and I’m gonna enjoy saying this) Number 2 in the Senate.

    Cafos come and they never really go away, but that Senate wingnut stench will last forever.

  5. prime the pump. invention of the world wide web. I did not have sex! these things lose elections, impeach presidents.

    karma is a beotch

    BTW-the little fat Drumpf in North Korea launched another missile today. Big fat Drumpf is still whining about Comey and probably didn’t get the message.

    @MFI Our President was heard muttering, “C’mon, world. One thing at a time, will ‘ya? Who’d ‘ya think I am? Obama?” :o)

    Actually, Poppa Don is still expending energy battling it out with Rosie O’Donnell. Conduct unbecoming……

  9. North Korea has launched a new missile that has successfully hit the ocean, good shot as it is hard to hit sometimes. republican senators have successfully found a way to pass the trumpcare with a few tweaks that will hit the streets soon enough. 24 million will loose coverage or have it so they cannot afford it outright and the timing could not be better. Ebola is back and what a better way to encourage it than the lack of medical care. Well done republicans, well done. Now to get those tax breaks as the party knows best.

  10. One of the problems with having health insurance in America is that the insureds are clueless about the bills. They think that they have a co pay that is 20 or 30 bucks and that should take care of the whole thing. trump thinks that as well as he has never seen a medical bill on himself.

    republicans always think party first and that they have the resources to cover the expenses that happen. I would make a suggestion that republicans take a look at the whole bill and not the part that says “what you owe” on their Explanation of Benefits. They would then see how much the charge is and how quickly their resources will be drained for the tax break of their elite brethren. When you pay hundreds a day to stay in the hospital and then have to pay for the drugs and follow up visits, a half million bucks is kind of a paltry sum. Party is always first, but one has to think about survival as well…or at least they should. Homelessness is no longer a guarantee that you are gonna get a square meal and your individualistic ideal of having a gun to defend yourself suddenly becomes a burden as you are the one you are defending yourself from.

    Good one, Porter. And it is prolly true. Did Obama ever show flustration when times got tough? Drumpf hasn’t seen anything until the impeachment charges come.

  12. I’m intrigued by the idea that a candidate who campaigned vigorously on “America First!” would deem foreign policy more important than domestic policy. To what extent will choosing Kim Jong Un over health care hurt Trump’s standing with any segment of his 63M voters?

  13. Andrew Jackson knows more about this health care bill and the state of health care in our country, than this bumbling idiot does.

    Drumpf’s base is solid-regardless of how he whines or screws up.

  15. mike from iowa

    Here’s the skinny on Drumpfcare. I can see why the koch bros love it.

  16. mike from iowa

    My humblest apologies for messing up your name, Dana P. Drumpf did it when I wasn’t looking. :)

  17. ha ha, MFI. Didn’t bother me in the slightest. However, the Drumpf excuse? Love it

  18. GOP Party members, repeat after me:

    I pledge blind allegiance to the flag
    of the GOP Party of America
    and to the lack of principles for which it stands
    one party, under Trump
    with liberty and justice for the 1%

  19. Nailed it Mr. Rorschach, the republican cult actually makes that pledge each day, throughout the day.

    The letter from Drumpf’s lawyers claiming he has no Russian assets in his taxes was written on March 8th, over 2 months ago. The law firm was recognized as Russia’s best last year. America first Drumpf even outsources his legal work.

  21. mike from iowa

    Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

    Info he was not authorized to share with Russia about Islamists. WaPo has the rest of the story. Can we impeach the doosh now?
