After weeks of talks behind closed doors, Senate Republicans finally released their healthcare plan to the public. On Thursday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah looked into the Obamacare replacement and how it will affect Americans.
The bill was called a “vampire bill” because Democrats thought it couldn’t survive outside the GOP’s secret room, but as Noah said Thursday, like a new iPhone reveal, we slowly learned the details.
“No one knew, there were leaks, we weren’t quite sure. And just like Apple, today the Republicans sent out their own turtlenecked leader to reveal the bill,” Noah said, referring to Mitch McConnell.
Essentially, Republicans decided to “cut American’s health care so we can give people tax cuts,” but that’s “not the point. It’s like a fireman running into a burning building and saving the fire, not the baby.”
Noah then moved on to Trump’s recent speech in Iowa in which he contradicted many of his campaign claims. “You know what was really impressive to see last night?” asked Trevor. “Was how Trump supporters are so on board with their dude he can say anything and they’ll come along for the ride.” Watch the clip to see Trevor break down the many examples.
