This is a BIG deal.

Setting the record straight!
On Thursday, Marie Osmond took to Twitter to clarify that, despite her neutral stance about Donald Trump's upcoming inauguration, she has NO intention of performing at the political event. Sorry, Drumpf!
The Donnie & Marie star posted:
The end is nigh!
On Wednesday night, the Senate voted 51-48 to instruct committees to start drafting legislation that would repeal President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.
Wednesday's vote approves committees of both the House and Senate to draft repeal legislation by January 27. At that point, the branches of government need to approve the legislation before a repeal can go through.
It's widely known that Republicans have been seeking to repeal Obamacare — the thing that gave health coverage to 20 MILLION previously uninsured Americans — and it's possible the process could take months. But what's worse is Republicans don't even have a solid plan to replace the ACA!
As a result, many Americans with health problems took to Twitter in the last 24 hours to express their concerns over the insurance changes, and to show their support for the ACA, saying:
Sure it's easier than ever to poke fun at Donald Trump thanks to #GoldenShowerGate, but late night hosts have even more to say about Trump's horrible treatment of a CNN reporter at Wednesday's press conference!
Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert couldn't resist the pee jokes, but Seth Meyers (who actually sat down with Donald's adviser Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday night) took a moment Wednesday to share a couple different points!
The funnyman broke down Buzzfeed's shady "reporting" — before BLASTING the future POTUS for being so hypocritical of "fake news." Remember the whole Barack Obama birther thing?
But Seth wasn't the only one disturbed by Trump's reaction. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah took some time during his show to criticize our future leader for how AWFUL he treated the press. Noah even pointed out:
"Wow, welcome to the next four years. You know, honestly, that was one of the most frightening moments of today's presser for me. Because in America, the press is supposed to be a check on the president, not the other way around."
Ch-ch-check out all the late night takes (below)!
He's no President Barack Obama…
But while Wednesday's speech from the Trump Towers lobby was supposed to be about his conflicts of interest when it comes to running both the United States and his multi-million dollar business… the only thing anyone really cared about was Tuesday night's golden shower allegations!
Leave it to the Obamas to have us in tears.
After President Barack Obama made his formal farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday evening, his wife Michelle Obama took to Instagram to reflect on her man's emotional speech. Alright, folks, get your tissue boxes ready.
