2014 Donald Trump Landed a Sick Burn on 2017 Donald Trump

Update, May 4, 2017: This is relevant AGAIN because today, May 4, is also a Thursday and the GOP is again supposed to vote for the American Health Care Act. 


1) Congressional Republicans are supposed to vote on the American Health Care Act, which would repeal Obamacare and be disastrous for millions of people.

2) Donald Trump is president. Trump strongly supports the American Health Care Act, which would be disastrous for millions of Americas (see item 1).

3) It is a Thursday.
