Obama Speechwriter Peppers Trump With Healthcare Questions In Response To Twitter Tantrum

Donald Trump claimed he “knows everything” about healthcare. President Obama’s speechwriter wants him to prove it.

In yet another tantrum on Twitter Wednesday morning, Trump attacked the New York Times after the newspaper published an account of the meeting he had with Senate Republicans on Tuesday.

“A senator who supports the bill left the meeting at the White House with a sense that the president did not have a grasp of some basic elements of the Senate plan — and seemed especially confused when a moderate Republican complained that opponents of the bill would cast it as a massive tax break for the wealthy,” the Times wrote.

So Trump attacked the Times and whined that the publication didn’t call him to confirm the story. Of course, Trump would have disputed the story since he attacks any story that doesn’t stroke his ego.

Trump also had the audacity to claim that he “knows everything about the subject” of healthcare.

Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau was quick to respond to Trump by challenging his knowledge of healthcare with a series of questions.

Predictably, Trump has not answered any of Favreau’s questions. That’s because Trump knows nothing. That would require doing research and reading. And actually giving a damn.
