3. Here's exactly what Trump said...

Transcript here:
http://time.com/4872118/trump-boy-scout-jamboree-speech-transcript/

Secretary Tom Price is also here today. Dr. Price still lives the Scout oath, helping to keep millions of Americans strong and healthy as our secretary of Health and Human Services. And he's doing a great job. And hopefully he's going to gets the votes tomorrow to start our path toward killing this horrible thing known as Obamacare that's really hurting us.
(APPLAUSE)
CROWD: USA! USA! USA!
TRUMP: By the way, are you going to get the votes? He better get them. He better get them. Oh, he better. Otherwise I'll say, "Tom, you're fired." I'll get somebody.


ETA link to video of just that part:

I got a just kidding/not kidding vibe from watching it. I don't understand how any quasi intelligent human being with even a trace of ethics or morality can support this narcissistic abusive jerk.

4. I caught that line too.



The Donald did indeed say that if Tom Price did not deliver on the Health Care vote, he would be fired. Like Price had any influence on the Senate anyway.

Jeff Sessions and Tom Price are both skating on thin ice right now.

6. We need Sessions for now because of Russia. Price can go.

The fear is - what nutjob would he replace him with.

5. I really thought the scumbag former Congressman from Georgia would whip the Senate into shape

 

Maybe he was too busy insider-trading to really put the hammer down.
