Here’s something we never thought we’d say: Donald Trump just pulled out!
The House was set to vote on the legislation on Friday, though most congressionals opposed the half-baked American Health Care Act.
Trump and house speaker Paul Ryan were once confident they could get enough Republican votes to replace the Affordable Care Act — but shit went SOUTH first on Thursday and then during the formal debate on the bill Friday morning.
How south? The House called for a recess just MINUTES before the official vote was supposed to go down. Republican representatives dramatically called for a secret meeting, frantically scrambling for last minute support.
That effort proved to be futile minutes later, when it was reported that the President called for Ryan to pull the bill completely:

Damn, that’s embarrassing!!!
We’ll report more on this as the story develops, but it looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Trumpcare!
