During the presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly said that “we’ll be winning so much, you’ll get tired of winning.” Yep, Trump may have billed himself as a “winner”, but as the first 64 days of his administration have shown, the commander in chief is actually more of a loser, as Press Secretary just accidentally admitted.
As Damage control was underway at the White House after the Obamacare repeal bill was pulled from the House floor Friday afternoon, the White House sought to prevent any blame from landing on Trump. House Speaker Paul Ryan emerged as a prime target.
“The president did’everything’ he could to repeal and replace Obamacare,” Spicer said. “He did his best to help people see the opportunity that we have with this bill. He’s really been fantastic. Still, we gotta do better and we will.”
Really? He did his best and still lost? That’s a remarkable indictment by the Press Secretary. He is admitting that Trump doesn’t have what it takes to win.
And he doubled down on it: “We’ve done everything. We’ve done every single thing. Every meeting, every call, every discussion,” Spicer added. Still, Trump FAILED.
No wonder Trump hasn’t done anything of value for the American people. Even his hyped travel ban was shot down by the courts.
Here’s a list of Trump’s “winning” streak since his shocking election:
1. Lost the popular vote by the highest margin ever.
2. Failed Yemen raid that killed U.S. Navy Seal and an American girl.
3. Mexico isn’t paying for the wall.
4. Muslim ban struck by the courts
5. Under FBI investigation
6- Health care repeal EPIC fail.
After losing BIGLY with the entire world watching, the White House did what it does best: blame someone else for the humiliating defeat.
“This is 100 percent a Ryan failure,” one senior administration official said after the bill was pulled.
Ryan, meanwhile, was pointing his finger at his own pals on Capitol Hill, suggesting that the Freedom Caucus as responsible for the defeat.
“There is a bloc of ‘no’ votes that we had that is why this didn’t pass. They were a sufficient number of votes that prevented it from passing and they didn’t change their votes. We were close,” Ryan said.
But Ryan was full of public praise for Trump.
“The president did everything he possibly could to help the bill pass,” he said. “This is a setback, no two ways about it.”
Yes, Trump did his best and still lost in spectacular fashion.
