Parker Molloy (@parkermolloy) joins the show to talk about the House voting to repeal Obamacare and how awful Trumpcare is: premium hikes for people with asthma, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and even people who are pregnant (how pro-life of the GOP!); the plan jeopardizes out-of-pocket caps in employer plans, could consider sexual assault a pre-existing condition, targets special education students by gutting Medicaid in order to give rich people another tax break, Congress can exempt themselves from the plan and keep Obamacare, and Jason Chaffetz rolls in to strip healthcare from sick kids after receiving foot surgery from a pre-existing condition that will be covered by his insurance. Also, Steve Bannon's cartoonishly evil "To Do" list, James Comey says that the idea of the FBI having swayed the election outcome makes him "mildly nauseous," gross: Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski are engaged, Kushner didn't disclose investment in startup with Goldman Sachs or George Soros links, White House leaning toward exiting Paris Agreement to combat climate change, and the NYT Public Editor Liz Spayd pleads with readers to give climate change denying bigot Bret Stephens a chance
