I’m glad Trump is nipping this Schumer thing in the bud. The first foray by Schumer after being elected minority leader was to make a very public attack on Trump. It’s been fairly effective in that Schumer’s name is floating around and he has made some headlines. Trump fighting back and discrediting this boob is exactly what is called for and will most likely take the wind out any sails that this whining liberal might have gained.

- President Obama headed to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to caucus with Democrats about about how to save Obamacare from GOP repeal efforts

President-elect Donald Trump lashed out at congressional Democrats on Thursday – including ‘head clown’ Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader – saying they should work with Republicans to find a workable replacement for the Obamacare medical insurance overhaul plan.
‘The Democrats, lead [sic] by head clown Chuck Schumer, know how bad ObamaCare is and what a mess they are in. Instead of working to fix it, they do the typical political thing and BLAME,’ Trump wrote in a series of morning tweets.
‘The fact is ObamaCare was a lie from the beginning.”Keep you [sic] doctor, keep your plan!” It is time for Republicans & Democrats to get together and come up with a healthcare plan that really works – much less expensive & FAR BETTER!’
A day earlier, the president-elect urged Republicans to blame Democrats for the ‘mess’ of Obamacare, while outgoing president Barack Obama counseled Democrats not to bail Republicans out by signing on to replacement efforts once the GOP goes through with its plan to repeal Obama’s signature legislative proposal.
President Barack Obama arrived on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to meet with members of Congress to discuss his signature healthcare law
The counter-charges in the rekindled Obamacare wars came as Republicans are planning an immediate attack on the law thorough executive actions and an early legislative push.
Obama went to the Capitol to meet with Congressional Democrats to plot strategy in an effort to prevent his achievement from getting dismantled – a victory Democrats won only at great cost, including with the loss of their congressional majorities.
The president told Democrats not to ‘rescue’ Republicans by joining their effort to passing replacement measures, amid GOP efforts to court some conservative Democrats.
He pointed to the post-Obamacare Tea Party revolution, and even urged his party to try to brand Republican-backed changes as ‘Trumpcare’ as a rhetorical way to saddle the opposition party with responsibility for what ensues, CNN reported.
Asked by reporters what he said on his way out of the closed door meeting, Obama said only, ‘Look out for the American people.’
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama said he felt ‘envy’ for those who have the opportunity to ‘keep up the fight’ as he prepares to decamp the White House for a rented home in Northwest Washington.
