The man-child is at it again, deflecting to persuade his gullible masses.

Ratings. Because whatever the most people are doing must be the best.

He's scared and trying to change the narrative ahead of the Senate hearings today. But it won't work, because his tweets have already been contradicted by Comey.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread



This bullshit narrative is what bothers me the most.

No, you idiot man-child, they were not "way off", they were well within the accepted margin of error, and Clinton actually did get way more votes than you, just as the polls predicted. You only won by an aberration of the electorate.

He got his phone back.













Can't he call Ivana and hang up like any other self-respecting drunk who has nobody to turn to?

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

Trump's tweets are basically doing this to the American people:



Many fall for it.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

I'm tempted to set up a twitter account again just so I can call Trump an idiot on a daily basis.

I'm worried about the 20K to 40K people who "liked" those tweets.

Don't be. "Fake eyeballs" is what I call it when pertaining to online advertising. It's all smoke and mirrors.

But I really am worried about the legitimate users who liked those Tweets. To think somewhere we're allowing them to pee in the same bathroom as women and children.

I'd imagine that too many people utilize healthcare. Premiums get to a point where people (and businesses) just can't afford them. If premiums hold where they are, people will presumably be able to afford it. But if there's another spike in premiums, there will be a breaking point.

My breaking point passed. I cannot afford $420/mo for insurance with high deductibles (low deductible option was around $650/mo). It's just out of the question. In the same way I'm not going to go and finance a luxury car, I cannot afford to pay what the healthcare.gov marketplace was offering. So I'm uninsured (and will probably be stuck with the fine).

I have a suspicion that a lot of the marketplace users do not manage to keep their insurance throughout the year. Once your payment is 15 days past due, you don't have coverage. At 30 days, you are dropped. I would gamble to say that is a statistic that proponents of the ACA suppress.

Yeah, when I got moved to a high deductible plan, my company contributed to an HSA to cover most of the deductible, so it was an easy move. Then they dropped the contribution. Now I'm paying $300 a month and have a $4500 deductible. I think I tore a rotator cuff reaching behind my seat in my car a couple months ago, but I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars to have it looked at, so I deal with the limited motion now instead of an X-ray, surgery, and/or physical therapy. I basically now have catastrophe insurance which I won't use unless it's life or death because I have no idea how much treatments will cost. It's messed up.

So, in other words, you are paying money for an insurance that you will not use? You are giving them free money without them doing their part and being held somewhat accountable when you need them. What good is it doing to pay for something but being too afraid to use it. I really think insurance companies will continue to fleece us for as much money as they can until the number of insured drops to such a small percentage that they can no longer operate. Do we really think that by having less people be insured that they are going to suddenly drop the amount that the insured have to pay?

This is my favorite, simply because he @ed the FBI. Like he was sitting in the West Wing thinking "What's the best way I, the president of the United States, can make James Comey aware of this explosive information I just learned by watching Brian Kilmeade? I know -- I'll put it on his timeline!"

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

Twitter's 140 character limit stinks, because that tweet clearly should have ended, "Sincerely, U.S.A."
