Paul Ryan Used a PowerPoint to Explain Trumpcare and, Surprise, People Are Meme-ing the Hell Out Of it

Why do politicians keep doing this?

Every few weeks another politician stands in front of a screen to make their case, and it just gets destroyed on the internet. As if Trumpcare didn't have enough bad press, now it's getting another meme-ing. One healthcare plan can only take so much meme-ing! 

He's asking for it. 

Trumpcare might be on meme life support, but it definitely can't afford the deductible.

The GOP Threw Any Old Quote on a Picture of Lincoln For Lincoln's Birthday, So Now Everyone's Getting in the Game

Yesterday was Abraham Lincoln's birthday, a day for us to remember one of America's finest leaders. So why not post one of his quotes to find the strength of a man who brought this country together? There's so much to choose from, like say, maybe something from  "The Gettysburg Address."

But the GOP isn't just any Grand Old Party, they are, as they so often like to remind people accusing them of racism, "the party of Lincoln." Of course, this is a meaningless sentiment since everyone knows that the Democratic and Republican parties essentially switched platforms during the 20th century. But hey, bringing up Lincoln don't hurt. Unless of course, you misquote him. 

To celebrate Lincoln and his words, the GOP wanted to quote the man, but not just you're old "Four score and twenty years." They wanted a deep cut, a cut so deep that Lincoln didn't even say the quote they attributed to him. Apparently, it comes from some advertisements for an anti-aging book from the 1940s.

So Twitter does what Twitter does and started just attributing any quote to Abraham Lincoln and the results are hilarious. Check it out.

Political Fail of The Day: Ben Carson Doesn't Want Refugees in America, Can't Even Draw a Proper Map

GOP presidential candidate and literal 24/7 sleepwalking man Ben Carson really doesn't want Syrian refugees to be allowed in the United States.

Unfortunately, he can't even draw a map of the country he wants to deny them access to (and be leader of).

His campaign tweeted out a message of support for the dozens of governors who have expressed concern over allowing Syrian refugees into the country following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

From The Washington Post:

As you can see, in Carson's map the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine are moved northeast by about 150 miles or so. Vermont and New York now have hundreds of miles of new beachfront property. Massachusetts shares a border with Canada. Maine straddles what is now the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Also, if you look closely at the mid-Atlantic area, you'll see that Virginia's portion of the Delmarva Peninsula is colored red to match Maryland, rather than gray with the rest of Virginia.

Nice job, Ben!

Planned Parenthood has had it tough lately. First, some undercover films were released showing some alleged back door selling of fetal tissue, then calling for defunding the organization became a political necessity for candidates seeking the GOP presidential nomination.



The videos, which many see as aggressively edited, were captured by an undercover sting operation by the Center for Medical Progress. They swiftly led to Republicans in the Senate bringing a vote to defund the organization Aug. 3. It failed to pass.

Then, in the crowded, 17-person GOP primary field, the topic of defunding Planned Parenthood in wake of the tapes became something of a bingo free space in currying support from pro-life voters. Candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal even went so far as to approve an executive order to withdraw from the state's contract in funding Louisiana's two Planned Parenthood clinics.

Well, things are about to get even worse with this video, which showcased the true experience had by millions of women who reach out for the provider for help and guidance with reproductive health.

Scathing is one word for it.

Maybe now, the assistance that Planned Parenthood gives can be rightly scrutinized.
