Rand Paul Looks SO Uncomfortable Being In The Same Room As Donald Trump — Just Watch The Awkwardness!

no title

That awkward moment when you feel ashamed for contributing to the destruction of American health care but still have to pose with the president for the cameras.

We've all been there, right??

Well, Rand Paul certainly has — and the Kentucky senator made it quite clear he did NOT want to be in the same room as Donald Trump at a recent White House press event.

On Thursday, POTUS gathered members of congress to watch him sign an executive order on health care, which could radically transform Obamacare.

While Paul had refused to support the previous GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, he actually approved of this latest order that will allow some people to leave the Obamacare markets — but come signing time, his face said otherwise!

Twitter users couldn't help but hone in on Paul's reaction to Trump entering the room on Thursday, immediately switching from a normal conversational mode to running-into-an-ex-at-Whole-Foods. See for yourself:

John McCain Will Vote 'No' On The Evil Graham-Cassidy Health Care Bill & Jimmy Kimmel Is Eternally Grateful!

no title

For the past few months, the GOP has been trying to repeal Obamacare with shitty — er, "skinny" — replacement bills that would take away healthcare for millions of Americans.

And they would've gotten away with it, too… if it wasn't for that pesky John McCain!

On Friday, the Republican Senator announced in a statement that he cannot "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal knowing how it will affect those with pre-existing conditions and insurance premiums overall.

McCain said Republicans and Democrats "have not yet really tried" to work together and come up with a bipartisan approach, which he feels is necessary to do when drafting a bill that affects so many lives.

The veteran's opposition makes it very unlikely that the bill will garner the 50 votes needed to reach Donald Trump's desk before September 30, since Senators Rand Paul and Susan Collins are also expected to vote "no" on the proposal.

GOP leaders are reported to be at the "evaluating options" stage right now, but critics of the bill are already thanking McCain for standing his moral ground — especially Jimmy Kimmel, who made his opposition no secret to late night audiences.

Read McCain's full statement (below) along with the love and respect he got from most of Twitter!
