For the second time Thursday, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) canceled his press conference on the Republican health plan. It was announced shortly after that the vote on the bill in the House has also been postponed. The move came less than an hour after White House press secretary Sean Spicer assured the media that there would be a vote. Trump previously worked the caucus of tea party members to vote for the bill, but 10 members announced they wouldn’t be supporting it.
Trump further humiliated himself by promising a table of truck drivers that there would be a vote Thursday because his staff neglected to tell him the vote was canceled. The White House has yet to respond to the announcement, but Twitter has already blown up with mockery calling Ryan and Trump losers for failing to pass the bill.
Check out the hilarity below:
@realDonaldTrump Yeah, big day for healthcare. No vote. First your ban, then Russian collusion, and now your AHCA – how's it feel, Loser?

So the "expert" closer and "deal maker" named Trump couldn't' close his deal on health care. This is what winning really looks like.

@SarahBurris This is the same guy who didn't know healthcare was complicated

Failed travel ban.
Plummeting approval rating.
