For some bizarre reason, Donald Trump tried to use Henry Kissinger to bash Obamacare without understanding that Kissinger is 94 years old and not buying private insurance.
Trump said, “We’re going to have to do something about Obamacare because it’s failing. Henry Kissinger does not want to pay a one hundred and sixteen percent increase in his premiums, and it’s getting worse. It is getting worse by the minute, so we’re going to have to do something about Obamacare.
1). Henry Kissinger is 94 years old and probably hasn’t paid a health insurance premium in decades.
2). There is this program called Medicare. It covers people over age 65.
3). Henry Kissinger’s premium did not go up by 116%.
Trump’s example was absurd and demonstrates how out of touch with reality the man in the White House is. What the President also failed to mention is that his acts of sabotage and the uncertainty that he is intentionally creating around the ACA is why health insurance premiums are going up. Trump used a man who is nearly 100 years old to argue against Obamacare.
He couldn’t have chosen a worse political prop if he tried.
The whole thing is hilarious because no matter how hard Donald Trump tries to turn the country against Obamacare, he always ends up failing.
