People Are Trolling Trump's "Deal-Making" Skills After The Health Care Bill Died

"He published a book called 'The Art of the Deal' then couldn't sell a GOP healthcare bill to the GOP!"

Posted on

On Friday, President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan announced they were giving up on repealing Obamacare after their health care plan failed to attract enough support from their fellow Republicans.

The failure unleashed some pretty epic trolling.

A lot of people referenced Trump's best-selling quasi-memoir The Art of the Deal, which laid out the then–real estate tycoon's strategies for business.

Many were like, "So, how's that 'art' of the deal going for ya?"

Looks like you know nothing about the art of the deal, @realDonaldTrump. Obamacare is still the law of the land!… https://t.co/W7llix9HXI

And many used this photo of Hillary Clinton and former president Obama laughing with glee.

"Hey everyone, look at me. I'm Donald Trump. I wrote The Art of the Deal! We'll get it passed!"

"Hey everyone look at me, I'm Donald Trump, I wrote the Art of the DEAL!, We'll get it passed!" BWAAAAAAAAAAAAH AHA… https://t.co/6dfkwhU1Db

The Twitter trolls were shady AF: "I guess Obama is just better at the art of the deal."

I guess Obama is just better at the art of the deal. #KillTheBill

They also shaded the GOP.

The art of the deal is no longer it was all in his head! Couldn't repeal Obama Care! Republicans had 8 fucking year… https://t.co/qyOcSJgDsQ

"For seven years the GOP railed against the ACA and when they have full control they can't pull it off. The Art of the Deal, please. Sad."

But mostly, they clowned on Trump and his ~deal skills~.

"NOT!"

Is this the "art of the deal"?

"Don't be afraid to walk away. Make crazy claims you can't back up. Blame everyone else. Whine. Sit in a big truck." -- The Art of the Deal

To be fair, "Art is hard."

Basically, this is everyone who supports Obamacare rn.

@Freeyourmindkid The "Art of the Deal" and shit!

"NO."
