Please grab Bernie Sanders tissues and the world’s smallest violin, because he’s totally going to go comfort President Trump over his latest problem. JK — Bernie’s laughing uncontrollably when he found out that Trump’s thinks health care reform is ‘complicated’! Watch the hilarious clip here!
This is the funniest thing Senator Bernie Sanders, 74, has heard in a long time, probably ever! President Donald Trump, 70, bafflingly said in a meeting with the nation’s governors on February 27 that “nobody knew that health care could be so complicated,” despite the fact that pretty much everyone who’s ever lived knows it.
When Anderson Cooper, 49, told Bernie that Trump actually said this, while they were discussing the Affordable Care Act in a February 28 interview, and the senator could not stop laughing. Bernie turned red and gasped as Anderson stifled a giggle, as well; the absurdity of someone who railed so hard against repealing the ACA having no idea what it really means is too much to handle. Bernie gathered himself like a champ and told Anderson that he was well aware of just how complicated health care reform is. He lived it the first time around!
“Well, some of us were sitting on the Health Education Committee, who went to meeting, after meeting, after meeting, who heard from dozens of people who spent night after night trying to figure out this thing — yeah, we got a clue,” Bernie said. “To provide healthcare in a nation of 320 million people, yeah it is very complicated.
“And maybe now, maybe some of the Republicans and the president understand you have to go beyond the rhetoric ‘we’re going to repeal the Affordable Care Act, we’re going to repeal Obamacare and everything will be wonderful.’ Little bit more complicated than that.”
