President Trump may get all the credit, but Vice President Mike Pence knows how to work the Twitter too, as evidenced by his epic Monday take-down of Connecticut Senator Christopher Murphy.
In response to Pence tweeting this video in which he stated his support for the GOP health care bill now being debated in the Senate…

… Senator Murphy tweeted:
I'm going to say it – there is real evil in the epidemic rate of lying that is going on right now. This is not normal. https://t.co/ifkV1GWAUH

Pence didn’t respond to Murphy until Monday, but it was worth the wait.
You mean like, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor."? 🤥 https://t.co/GUpFKhe7pz

“You mean like, ‘If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor’?” Pence tweeted, referring to former-President Obama’s promise in the midst of trying to pass the Affordable Care Act, right along with a Pinocchio emoji for effect.
Because as we all found out later, it was a lie.
Needless to say, Pence’s mic-drop tweet was the source of much social media buzz:
Interesting the way the truth sends the left into a spasm of hate and rage.

And yes, plenty of rage from the left:
Disingenuous. YOU KNOW that the plan was “If you like your doctor, you keep your doctor.”
Failing on a promise is a far cry from lying.

you’re going to take away my family’s healthcare, you beady-eyed mutant. go call your wife “mother” and otherwise shut your goddamn mouth

Stay classy, Sean.
You’re a lying sack of crap.

I think at this point people are more worried about keeping their loved ones alive than they are your stale ’12 talking point reboot.

As if healthcare in America hasn’t gotten progressively worse since Obamacare.
Dude, you’re cutting Medicaid by $2.1 trillion and claiming that strengthens Medicaid. You are a dirty, stinking, naked liar. Period.
— Matthew Chapman (@fawfulfan) July 17, 2017
Um, no Matthew. Cutting the rate of growth isn’t “cutting” anything, and if it staves off insolvency then yes, it has “strengthened” it.
Instead of offering positive case for “health care” bill that will cost tens of millions their coverage, GOP resorts to whataboutism. Sad!

fuck you, Mike.

Yep, this is what passes for an “argument” from the Left these days, but isn’t that pretty much what we expect by now?
