For the third time in three days, he has changed his stance on Obamacare.

Instead of letting Obamacare fail as he proclaimed yesterday, Trump Now Asks Congress to Stay in Session until they get something done.

Here is the sequence of events.

New Definition of Always

Today, President Trump told senators at the beginning of a lunch meeting at the White House “We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace, and we shouldn’t leave town until this is complete — until this bill is on my desk and until we all go over to the Oval Office. I’ll sign it and we can all celebrate to the American people.

‘Close Again’


“We are very close again,” Trump said.
Trump directed some joking but pointed remarks to the senators whose opposition sunk McConnell’s plan. To Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah, he called them “my friends, they really were and are, they might not be very much longer.”
He also delivered a veiled threat to opponents. Speaking to Dean Heller of Nevada, who opposed the first version of McConnell’s bill, Trump suggested the voters in Nevada would appreciate him voting to replace Obamacare.
“He wants to remain a senator doesn’t he?” Trump asked. “Any senator who votes against starting debate is really telling America you are fine with Obamacare,” he added.

Do You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?

I just happen to have a fitting musical tribute.

The new definition of “always” is 9 hours and 41 Minutes.

For anyone who has problems making of their mind, that new definition sure is handy.

By the way, what happened to “I’m Not Gonna Own It‘?
