That Obamacare replacement really isn't going that well. In addition to making people pay more for less coverage and lying to the public for years, Republicans spent most of a decade complaining about something they never really had any intention of fixing. 

But at least there's this, one of the replacement plans is called the "World's Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017," which they had to have stolen from a "World's Greatest Dad" mug or something. 



Now you're probably wondering, how is this real? What the hell is going on? But this is just one of the possible bills that the GOP might use and rename the American Health Care Act.

This is a very real thing that you can read more about here.

J.K. Rowling would seem hellbent on keeping herself entertained post-Harry Potter through regularly preying upon unsuspecting Twitter personalities, or just Donald Trump all the time. Usually, she digs a bit deeper into the well of razor-sharp and unforgiving witty banter. This particular insult though, is just kind of awkward.

In case you haven't heard, last night, the GOP unveiled their long-awaited replacement plan for Obamacare. To no one's surprise, it's filled with policy that will not only leave million uninsured and penalized heavily for not having insurance, but also give lots nice tax credits for the rich! These guys are nothing if not predictable. 

For the most part, it seems a lot like a plan that was slapped together in a hurry (because it was), becoming something og shittier version of Obamacare, offering similar ideas but for more money and less coverage. Even some House Republicans are calling this thing "Obamacare 2.0."

One thing it did help, however, was the internet, which got 10 CCs of memes comparing the Affordable Care Act with its whack-ass knockoff, the GOP replace aka The American Health Care Reform Act.

It was a big weekend for that reality-TV gameshow host who is clearly not happy that his dealings with Russia are bubbling to the surface. Yup, President Trump woke up on Saturday ready to let the world know two things 1) Obama is wiretapping his phones and 2) The Apprentice is being canceled because of Arnold. Must be nice to compartmentalize like that. Or as this guy put it:

So in gearing up for dealing with this bullshit, Stephen King, the horror master behind It and The Shining, is roasting our president on Twitter. Truth be told, it's the best King work since The Stand.

That nightmare who escaped your dreams and was confirmed as United States attorney general, Jeff Sessions, had a rough week. How else would you describe getting caught lying under oath about meeting with Russians? I would describe it as perjury.  

Bad.

So it was nice of Saturday Night Live to bring some southern gentility to the scandal. Here, they put Jeff Sessions in the role of Forrest Gump, a man who proves anything is possible if you're a white man. I guess this would be charming, if you weren't so dang fishy. 

Nigel Farage, the loud-mouthed broadcaster, politician, and major figure behind the Brexit movement, appeared on Russia Today and got a little bit more than he expected. 

On RT's morning show News Thing, the show answered the wish of many Brexit supporters: knighting Farage. So what did they do? They had a little girl come out with a crown and an inflatable sword to perform the knighting. 

Farage got down on one knee and the ceremony was finished. As he returned to his desk, this happened:

The internet is losing it for this clip, which simultaneously tells Farage to piss off and makes us wonder whether this whole thing was staged. What do you think?

Infowars founder Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist who says Sandy Hook was a hoax and that "they" are putting chemicals in the water that is turning frogs gay, is the human embodiment of a dog taking a shit. 

And to make matters worse, he eats lunch without a shirt on. See:

Man, the Fonz really let himself go. 

Luckily, there are still some people in this country who are around a speak up for injustice when they see it. Here's how Twitter responded to a walking, talking rotten tomato eating lunch without a shirt on.
