Seth Meyers on Wednesday lambasted the GOP healthcare replacement plan, and Donald Trump’s tepid support of the bill, noting while Trump has promised people will not “die in the streets” under his healthcare plan, we still don’t know “if we’re supposed to take him literally.”
Meyers noted that the Republican talking point in favor of the replacement plan is that premiums will be lower, adding this is “technically true, but only for young, healthy people.”
Referencing the Trump administration’s attacks on the Congressional Budget Office over its report that the plan could leave 24 million people uninsured, Meyers pointed out Trump made a “complete 180 here,” as the president frequently brought up the CBO when it was critical of former President Barack Obama.
“The only constant in all of this is Trump loves something if it agrees with him and hates it if it doesn’t,” Meyers said, later adding, “We can’t be sure if we’re supposed to take him literally.”
“One thing we do know, is we can’t believe his promises on healthcare,” Meyers said.

The Trump depression: Experts see a serious psychological depression taking hold in America
Julian Castro nails McConnell and GOP to the wall for putting ‘sexual predator’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court
Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault before getting down to the heart of the matter.
"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
Condi Rice deflects Trump’s racism by saying slavery was just ‘a number of people being treated badly’
Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.
During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.
"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.
"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."
