Donald Trump is so jealous of President Obama’s popularity, he is no bashing his own party’s healthcare bill for a “neener neener” moment. As you may recall, Trump referred to the House bill as “mean,” recently and said he hoped the Senate bill has more heart. Then the Senate bill was released and it was even more terrible than the House bill which prompted President Obama to speak out.
In a Facebook post on Thursday, the former president said of the bill:
Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.
This, apparently, grinds Trump’s gears because he called the bill “mean” first. No, seriously, he actually pointed that out.
On Sunday, during an interview with Fox & Friends the president said:
Well he used my term, mean. That was my term because I want to see—and I speak from the heart, that’s what I want to see. I want to see a bill with heart.

Yeah, Trump is now claiming ownership of the word “mean” and all of its variations because he is that petty. What’s hilarious about this is that in his rush to claim Obama is being a big copy-cat, he basically told the American people that the bill his party is pushing is absolutely going to screw them. What kind of moron does that when they are trying to pass legislation?
Trump. That’s who.
