After five years of promises Kayleigh McEnany reveals there’s a Trump healthcare plan — but they won’t reveal it

Published

President Donald Trump’s ABC town hall event teased a healthcare plan that he has been promising for months. The plan was then confirmed Wednesday by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who acknowledged the plan but said that Americans and the press couldn’t have access to it.

In 2015, Trump promised that the GOP would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. In an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show, he claimed the replacement would be “something great,” but five years later, the plan still hasn’t been revealed to the public.

Once Trump took office in 2017, he complained that the Senate must confirm former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price because the “repeal and replacement of ObamaCare is moving fast!”

There was another promise during his State of the Union Address later that month when the president promised, “The way to make health insurance available to everyone is to lower the cost of health insurance, and that is what we are going to do.”

But after Price was confirmed and over three years after that announcement, the proposal from Trump’s White House still wasn’t revealed.

Trump’s plan seemed to evolve later that year when the GOP failed to repeal Obamacare because there was no plan introduced to replace it. It was a deal-breaker for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who voted down the measure.

“ObamaCare is a broken mess. Piece by piece we will now begin the process of giving America the great HealthCare it deserves!” Trump announced.

Despite promises from the president in 2019, the plan still has not been unveiled.

“The Republican Party will become ‘The Party of Healthcare!'” Trump promised.

In April, however, Trump pulled back on his healthcare efforts explaining that he never planned to pass a new GOP healthcare law so early. According to the president, he wanted to wait closer to the election.

“I was never planning a vote prior to the 2020 Election on the wonderful HealthCare package that some very talented people are now developing for me & the Republican Party. It will be on full display during the Election as a much better & less expensive alternative to ObamaCare…”

“We’re going to produce phenomenal health care,” Trump said of his plan in June 2019. “And we already have the concept of the plan. And it’ll be much better health care,” Trump told George Stephanopoulos. When Stephanopoulos asked if he was going to tell people what the plan was, Trump responded: “Yeah, we’ll be announcing that in two months, maybe less.”

“You’ll have health care the likes of which you’ve never seen,” he promised later that year in October.

Finally, as 2020 began, Trump gave Americans a timeline of “two weeks” for the plan.

“We’re signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do,” Trump promised in a July 19 interview with Fox News.

After two months, Trump teased the plan again in the town hall. It matches his criteria of being closer to the election and certainly more than two weeks after his July promise. McEnany confirmed the White House’s proposed law is ready to go, but she told reporters that Americans and the press aren’t allowed to see it. It’s unclear why the plan is a secret since the president talked about it for so long. Still, McEnany didn’t clarify why the plan will remain a secret.

“I’m not going to give you a readout of what our health care plan looks like and who’s working on it. if you want to know, come work here at the White House,”  McEnany told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.

SNL does campaign ad asking what they’ll do without Trump to trash — then they have a revelation

Published

"What is the news even going to be about now?" the Saturday Night Life cast joked, saying that without President Donald Trump.

The fake ad began saying that everyone knows it could be the most important election of our lives.

"And the two choices couldn't be more different," the ad continues. "Do we want four more years of Donald Trump or a fresh start with Joe Biden? Can we survive four more years of scandal, name-calling, and racial division? Or do we want a leader who unites the country? I want to vote for Biden because he's better, smarter. better and better."

But, the cast members confessed, "I'm worried, because if Donald Trump isn't president -- when what are they going to talk about? Like, what would our conversations even be? Because the only thing I talked about for four years is Donald Trump. Every single day I tell someone, 'Can you believe what Trump just said?' My entire personality is hating Donald Trump. If he's gone, what am I supposed to do? Focus on my kids again? No thanks. He changed the game. He called the attorney general he appointed mentally retarded. That's some next-level sh*t!"

Published

"Saturday Night Live" began this week's show with a recap of the presidential debate showing President Donald Trump confusing Kirsten Welker with Hoda Kotb, Mindy Lahiri, and at one point, even a waitress.

Alec Baldwin explained that the coronavirus loved him so much that it didn't want to leave his body because it was so beautiful.

He also explained that he couldn't share his coronavirus plan because it was still under audit like his taxes.

Jim Cary toned down his portrayal of Joe Biden from last week's over-the-top yell-fest.

"Learning to live with it? We're learning to die with it, man!" said the fake Biden, quoting the real Biden, but with a glint of Clint Eastwood.
