In the last election there was a ton of confusion over President-elect Donald Trump’s actual policies. We were told to take him “seriously” but not “literally” (LOL) which is apparently leading to some pretty messed up outcomes.
In addition, this confusion was not helped by the presence of “fake news” that invented and proliferated the craziest conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton, and the Russian government who aided Wikileaks in acquiring emails stolen from the DNC and Clinton surrogates.
As a result, many people — even those who supported Donald Trump — were completely unaware that he wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Indeed, many didn’t even realize that “Obamacare” and the Affordable Care Act were exactly the same thing.
Here are some of those people who voted for Trump, but now feel betrayed that he is going to repeal Obamacare:
@realDonaldTrump You d-bag. Your making America great again by killing affordable healthcare? Regretting that I voted for you already.

It’s sincerely very unfortunate that these people who supported Donald Trump are now surprised that they may be losing their health insurance.
HOWEVER, we all should’ve known better. This is something that Donald Trump promised to do, and here at least, he seems to intend on keeping his promise.
