How About That Obamacare Repeal?

First off, despite the title of today’s post, I’m going to stop referring to the Affordable Care Act as Obamacare. On the real, Republicans have used this phrasing to stigmatize the issue in the minds of their base. This is exactly why a number of GOP voters don’t even realize that Obamacare and ACA are the same damn thing. In any case, now is a good time to laugh at the right-wing. Despite being in control of the presidency AND both houses of Congress, they still couldn’t muster up enough votes to pass the American Health Care Act. I’m sorry, but that’s fucking hilarious, son.

Now, I’d like someone to explain this failure to me. Ever since ACA became law, the GOP has made it their mission to bring it down. I mean, along with taking away women’s rights and banning all Muslims, repealing ACA is at the top of the Republican agenda. So, with that being said, how could they lose in such epic fashion? The GOP literally has home court advantage, son.

Look, they control the House of Representatives, the Senate and the presidency, man! That’s like having Shaquille O’Neal, Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the same team, bruh. The Democrats really can’t do shit but cry in a corner. All that, and Republicans STILL couldn’t convince enough members to vote for the new bill. Shit, “pitiful” isn’t even a strong enough word, son.

Moving on, as expected, Donald Trump is lashing out at anyone within arm’s reach. First, he took aim at the Democrats. He blamed them for not supporting ACHA at all. Once he remembered that his party controls everything, he shifted the blame to his own people. Ultimately, he attacked the House Freedom Caucus and Club for Growth and Heritage Action for America for the crushing defeat. All in all, I don’t give a fuck who’s responsible, man. The bill was trash, most Trump supporters actually signed up for ACA and the White House has no idea how to lead. All I know is, if they can’t get this done, they’re going to have a tough road ahead of them.

In the end, shout-out to the GOP for blowing a 3-1 lead. I’m sure the Golden State Warriors would be very proud. Now, was that an unnecessary knock on Stephen Curry and company? Yes, yes it was, son. Big whoop, wanna fight about it? LC out.

The Day Ann Coulter Went Too Far

So, Ann Coulter finally did it, huh? She finally said something that gave conservatives ulcers and conniption fits. Honestly, I never thought I’d see this day, man. After the years upon years of top shelf tomfoolery, her own constituents finally see her for the shiny turd she’s always been. I only have one question for her former supporters? What the hell took y’all so long? In any case, welcome to the side of the rational. Apparently, today is the day Ms. Ann finally went too far. Well, depending on who you ask.

To be fair, there aren’t too many things that are off limits in this country when it comes to free speech. Anytime I take a stroll through the wonderful streets of FacebookTwitter and Instagram, I see some of the most vile comments imaginable. However; there’s one faction of people who are generally left alone by individuals with even a morsel of morals: soldiers and their families. This general rule of thumb was blatantly violated by Ann after Khizr Khan‘s speech at the Democratic National Convention. Khan, the father of deceased Army Captain Humayun S.M. Khan, ridiculed Donald Trump‘s rhetoric against Muslims, especially since his son sacrificed his life for this country. During a tour in Iraq in 2004, Captain Khan saved the lives of his troops by telling them to stay back while he investigated a suspicious vehicle. Ultimately, this vehicle was packed with explosives and claimed Khan’s life. Based on the fact Trump’s plan is to ban all Muslims from the United States, Khizr Khan painted a real life picture of the sacrifices made by members of this community.

Since good ol’ Ann is a star player on Team Trump, she decided to take aim at Khan and his wife. According to her, Khan is an “angry Muslim with a thick accent like Fareed Zacaria.” Now, there are several things wrong with this statement. First, the CNN host’s proper name is Fareed Zakaria. Second, why was his name brought up in the first place? He had nothing to do with nothing, son. Third, talking about someone’s accent is a textbook example of racism, man. His accent doesn’t sound like hers, so apparently, there’s something wrong with him. Fourth, a man’s son gives the ultimate sacrifice for the country she claims to love and THIS is what she says about his family? Man, there is literally no pit of Hell this woman won’t sink to. You know things are bad when conservatives lose their collective minds. According to John Podhoretz, he’s ashamed to have ever known her. Jerry Saltz forwarded her a picture of Captain Khan’s gravesite and Yair Rosenberg questioned whether Ann was hugged enough as a child.

To be frank, I’m confused as to why it took people so long to realize Ann Coulter is a terrible human being. She was a terrible human being when she talked about Latin America‘s imaginary “rape culture” while campaigning for Trump. She was a terrible human being when she told a disabled Vietnam vet that people like him caused us to lose the war. She was a terrible human being when she suggested making a televised sport out of torturing Arabs. I mean, the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on, son. She’s literally one of the most despicable people walking this planet, man. It’s no wonder she has such a deep love for Trump. They’re made for each other.

In the end, do I really have to say anything else, bruh? Ann Coulter is exactly who we think she is. She’s always been this person, and FINALLY, her own compatriots are starting to see it. Hopefully, her audience has had enough of her, man. To be honest, I was done with her about fifteen years ago. Good day.
