‘GOP admits to being out of ideas’: RNC buried in mockery after demanding health care plan from Clintons

Published

on

The Republican National Committee challenged Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Democratic lawmakers to come up with their own health care plan, if they didn’t like what GOP senators were cooking up — and social media users pounced.

The RNC’s official Twitter account issued the challenge to the Clintons, neither of whom currently hold elected office, along with Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

“Our healthcare system is collapsing, but Democrats refuse to bring anything to the table,” the RNC tweeted. “Where’s THEIR plan?”

Democratic lawmakers have said they would not participate in any efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which Republicans have threatened to do since it passed into law and President Donald Trump promised to do immediately upon election.

Twitter users heaped mockery on the challenge, and pointed the RNC to health care reform plans posted on the campaign websites for Hillary Clinton and Sanders.

On Monday, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone sent a letter to House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings, saying Conway would "respectfully decline" the invitation to testify before Congress on her violations of the Hatch Act.

CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju spoke with Cummings about what comes next.

"Elijah Cummings told me they will subpoena Kellyanne Conway if she doesn’t show up Wednesday for his hearing on the Hatch Act - and 'of course' she’ll be held in contempt if she doesn’t comply with subpoena," Raju explained.

‘Good to know he has a rape type’: Internet scorches Trump for saying E. Jean Carroll isn’t attractive enough to assault

Published

on

President Donald Trump is faced with the fallout from advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's accusation that he forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s. His response, in an interview with the Hill, is to say that he couldn't have done it because "she's not my type."

The callous, misogynistic, and ignorant nature of this response shortly earned the fury of social media:

"Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened."
