Donald Trump took a victory lap Tuesday night in Ohio, hours after being on the winning side of a legislative squeaker that will restart the national debate over Obamacare.
‘You think that’s easy? That’s not easy,’ the president declared as he congratulated the U.S. Senate for moving ‘to begin debating a bill repealing and replacing the Obamacare disaster!’
‘It’s time for Democrats to stop resisting. That’s their term. “Resist! Resist!”‘ Trump fumed, moments after drawing a giant ‘Boooo!’ at the mention of President Barack Obama’s name.
‘They have to do finally what’s right for the American people, but probably we’ll do it ourselves,’ he said, referring to Republicans in Congress.
‘Today we won 51 to 50 and didn’t get one Democrat vote. Think of it,’ he vented.
Earlier, after a raucous round of ‘CNN sucks!’ cheers brought on by a presidential critique of ‘fake news,’ a more sinister roar floated through a Youngstown arena.
A man holding a pillowcase painted with ‘Trump/Pence Must Go’ shouted at the president from about 20 yards away.
For two full minutes police made their way to the solo demonstrator as fans clawed at his banner. Trump stood silent, watching and furrowing his brow.
At last, with the protester and his banner yanked outside, Trump deadpanned: ‘Where the hell did he come from?’
