President Donald Trump reportedly singled out Republican Sen. Rand Paul during a dinner with GOP senators on Monday night, criticizing the libertarian-leaning lawmaker for his opposition to the Senate's healthcare bill.After the bill was sunk by opposition from the conservative and moderate wings of the Republican Party, Trump complained that Paul had gone out of his way to publicize his discontent with the bill, and he derided the senator's TV appearances as unnecessary grandstanding, according to a New York Times report (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/18/us/politics/trump-health-care-senate-bill.html?_r=0). Paul was not at the dinner.
Trump said that while it was one thing to vote against the bill, it was another to "go on all of the Sunday shows and complain about it," according to The Times.
Paul responded on "Good Morning America" (https://twitter.com/GMA/status/887635899550277633) on Wednesday, defending his relationship with the president and holding firm on his rejection of the bill, which would have repealed and replaced the Affordable Care Act, the law better known as Obamacare.
"I think the president and I have a good relationship I've been one of his strongest defenders. I will continue to defend him against mainstream-media attacks," Paul said. "But on issues of substance like healthcare, he knows where I'm coming from. ... I was at the first tea parties saying that Obamacare was a mistake and we should repeal it."

Trump will not beat Paul.
It's like War and Peace.
Trump is Napoleon, or the Czar. Either way, Trump is not where he is because of Trump. He is more guided by his army than guiding his army. He is where he is because of a populist propaganda campaign.

Can dannno confirm when Trump will do a 180 and endorse Rand's plan? I'm so excited for that.

It's all part of the plan! Any moment now Trump and Paul are going to roll us back to the Coolidge era!

Also.... when will Speaker Ryan be stepping down... remember he's "never been wrong" on his Trump predictions.

I think it it a wee bit hypocritical for Trump to call out any person for what they say, write, tweet........

I don't have the wherewithal to go back through the thousands of posts, but you did indeed say you have not been wrong. I forget the specific thread, but Trump had made some stupid appointment and there were a lot of "3D Chess" posts, followed by several trumpsplaining posts... If anyone has the patience to go find Danno's post where he said that, have at it. I remember it because I considered putting it in my sig line. lol

Then admit that you were wrong with your prediction that Ryan would be out and we'll call it a day.

Reading the headlines, it would appear the person who recently called Ryan a 'limp dick motherfucker' is not out yet, but he's certainly being handed his hat!

Whatever dude, Ron Paul says the economy is going to collapse all the time and people give him shit because it hasn't happened yet. Doesn't mean it's not going to happen, doesn't mean he isn't going to be right when it does.

Well that's what you get for believing the mainstream media headlines.

Whatevar duuude. :rolleyes:


As soon as Paul Ryan is out, Trump will be ready to debate health care again.


And if that is never?


It happens soon after the vote fails. /snip

The vote failed. Man the fuck up for just once.

It didn't happen soon after the vote failed, doesn't mean it won't happen, doesn't mean that still isn't the goal. You can be right on a technicality and wrong on the issue. Just like Ron Paul seemed to think the collapse would happen sooner than it is going to, doesn't mean he isn't right that it would happen, and why.
