The View Trump Healthcare Complicated


“The View” co-hosts on Tuesday mocked Donald Trump for saying “nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated.” Check out the video below.

On Monday, the president said he’s learning how “hard” it is to deal with healthcare legislation, and said “nobody knew” how “complicated” it is. The ABC talk show also showed a clip of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ incredulous response, in which he noted how people in government have always known this. Whoopi Goldberg explained the situation in a mocking tone, as if Trump was a baby whining about his tough job.

The moderator went on to say, “This is how complicated it actually is: Ted Kennedy was tying to do this for years. Years and years. So if you didn’t know how complicated this, perhaps it would’ve behooved you to sit down and talk to people before saying you’re going to get rid of it.”

Sunny Hostin complained, “Presidents have been trying to get this done for over 100 years, and finally President Obama did it, and now they want to get rid it.” And Sara Haines, noting the difficulty in getting the Affordable Care Act passed, asked, “Why would he think with all that complexity and reaction that it wasn’t hard to do?”

Jedediah Bila pointed out that many of Trump’s supporters don’t want the government involved in healthcare matters, and brought up “death panels.” Goldberg shot back, “No one ever talked about death panels. That was a made up [boogey] man to scare people around.” And Joy Behar cracked, “If you take Obamacare away from people, you’re really going to see death panels.”

Bila did concede, though, “I think it’s irresponsible to suggest repealing and replacing without a plan.” As the tense discussion continued, Goldberg ended up getting bleeped. Watch below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
