Trump lies and claims his health care repeal didn’t fail

With Trump you really can’t imagine what fantastic lie he will say next. But in a Thursday’s “Fox and Friend”  interview Trump actually said, “Health care didn’t go down. We have the votes.”

The facts are these. There are three Republican “no” votes on the legislation put forward by Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. No one — including Graham and Cassidy — dispute that fact. Given that there are only 52 Republican senators, when you lose three of their votes, you don’t have 50. You have 49.

It’s why Senate Republican leaders called off the vote planned for this week. They don’t have the votes.  They just don’t. Everybody knows that.

Yet another outlandish Trump lie.
