Obama Urges Democrats To Call GOP Health Plan ‘Trumpcare’


WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M STEPHEN COLBERT. I’LL TELL YOU, WITH A GREETING
LIKE THAT, YOU MAKE ME WANT TO RUN IN 2020. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
OH, MAN. MY HEART IS THUMPING. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S FROM
RUNNING OUT HERE OR STANDING NEXT T TO KATE BECKINSALE. WHAT’S GOING ON? BIG NEWS FROM CAPITOL HILL. TODAY VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT MIKE
PENCE MET WITH CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TO TALK ABOUT
REPEALING OBAMACARE. ACCORDING TO SOME REPUBLICAN
CONGRESSMEN, “THE REPEAL
MEETING.” TWO, FOUR, SIX, EIGHT, MAKE THE
POOR SELF-MEDICATE! GOOOOOO (BLEEP) YOURSELVES!”
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) HEY, GUESS WHO ELSE WAS ON
CAPITOL HILL? PRESIDENT OBAMA STOPPED BY TO
MEET WITH DEMOCRATS, TO RALLY THEM TO DEFEND OBAMACARE. HERE’S OBAMA ROLLING IN WITH HIS
CREW INCLUDING SCARLETT McREDBOOT, CONGRESSIONAL
COWGIRL! ACCORDING TO SOURCES, OBAMA
URGED DEMOCRATS NOT TO RESCUE REPUBLICANS BY HELPING THEM PASS
REPLACEMENT MEASURES. DON’T HELP THEM FIX OBAMACARE OR
CHANGE IT OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THAT’S IN THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH:
FIRST, DO NO HARM. SECOND, HOPE THE OTHER DOCTOR
KILLS THE PATIENT. THEY GET BLAMED AND, IN TWO
YEARS, YOU REGAIN CONTROL OF THE HOSPITAL. OBAMA ALSO SUGGESTED THAT
DEMOCRATS START REFERRING TO THE G.O.P.’S NEW PLAN AS
TRUMPCARE.>>Jon: WOW.>>Stephen: THAT WILL SHOW
HIM. BECAUSE IF THERE’S ONE THING
DONALD TRUMP HATES, IT’S PUTTING HIS NAME ON THINGS. IT’S GOING TO STING. SPEAKING OF WHOM, WE’RE A LITTLE
OVER TWO WEEKS FROM TRUMP’S INAUGURATION. TYPICALLY– I KNOW, I’M
EXCITING, TOO. TYPICALLY, YOU’VE GOT A BUNCH OF
STARS THERE AT THE INAUGURATION TO PERFORM FOR THE NEW
PRESIDENT. REAGAN HAD FRANK SINATRA,
CLINTON HAD FLEETWOOD MAC, GEORGE W. HAD RICKY MARTIN,
OBAMA HAD BEYONCE. SO, OBVIOUSLY, FOR TRUMP,
EVERYBODY WHO’S ANYBODY IS GOING TO BE THERE, EXCEPT FOR ANYBODY. BECAUSE HE’S HAVING A WEE BIT OF
TROUBLE GETTING FAMOUS ACTS TO PERFORM. BUT THIS WEEK IT WAS ANNOUNCED
PROUD TO HAVE THE CAISSON PLATOON, HOME OF THE ARMY’S
OLDEST AND MOST FAMOUS HORSE, BLACK JACK. OKAY, OLD HORSE. THAT’S A CROWD PLEASER. KIDS LOVE OLD HORSES. THIS IS EXCITING. NOW, BEFORE YOU DROP A BUNDLE ON
STUBHUB TO GET TICKETS, YOU
MIGHT WANT TO KNOW THAT IN ADDITION TO BEING THE ARMY’S
OLDEST AND MOST FAMOUS HORSE, BLACK JACK HAS BEEN DEAD
FOR 40 YEARS. NOOOOO! WHY DO THE OLDEST HORSES ALWAYS
DIE SO YOUNG! AND TRUMP’S EVEN HAVING TROUBLE
WITH SOME OF THE ALIVE ACTS THAT HE’S BOOKED. TURNS OUT THE MORMON TABERNACLE
CHOIR IS SCHEDULED TO PERFORM– ONE FAN OF THE MORMON TABERNACLE
CHOIR HERE. I HAVE SOME TERRIBLE NEWS FOR MY
ONE MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR-HEAD. OVER THE WEEKEND, A CHOIR MEMBER
RESIGNED BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T WANT TO PERFORM FOR TRUMP. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THIS IS A DISASTER. I MEAN, WHO WANTS TO LISTEN TO
THE MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR WITH ONLY 359 MEMBERS? ( LAUGHTER )
OBVIOUSLY, OBVIOUSLY, NOW THE CHOIR NEEDS TO FILL THAT EMPTY
SPOT WITH A MORMON WHO HAS FREE TIME AND CAN SING. LET’S SEE, WHO COULD THEY
FIND? ♪ WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? WHO? WHO? ♪
>>Stephen: ALL RIGHT, TRUMP HAS A JOB FOR MITT AFTER ALL. IT’S NOT A PLACE IN THE CABINET,
BUT IT’S PROMINENT. YOU KNOW WHO’S DEFINITELY GOING
TO BE AT THE INAUGARAL? BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON WILL
ATTEND. I THINK THAT’S VERY NICE THAT
SHE’S BEING A GRACIOUS LOSER. AND IF YOU COUNT THE POPULAR
VOTE, A GRACIOUS WINNER. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
, OF COURSE,, OF COURSE, IT MAKES– DOESN’T CHANGE ANYTHING. ( LAUGHTER )
OF COURSE, IT MAKES SENSE THAT BILL CLINTON WOULD BE THERE. FORMER PRESIDENTS TRADITIONALLY
ATTEND THE INAUGURATION, AND THE NEXT DAY, A 200,000-WOMAN MARCH
WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE WASHINGTON MALL. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND THERE IS NO WAY BILL’S GOING TO MISS THAT. “200-THOU. I LIKE THOSE ODDS.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I WANT THEM TO LOWER ME. “I WANT THEM TO LOWER ME DOWN
LIKE A PORK CHOP IN A PIRANHA PIT.” ( LAUGHTER )
OF COURSE, ONE LITTLE SHADOW HANGING OVER THE INAUGARATION IS
THE WHOLE “RUSSIA CHOSE OUR PRESIDENT” THING. OUR ENTIRE INTELLIGENCE
COMMUNITY SAYS THAT RUSSIA HACKED CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN BUT
TRUMP DOESN’T BUY IT. AND LAST NIGHT HE TWEETED, “THE
INTELLIGENCE BRIEFING ON SO-CALLED RUSSIAN HACKING WAS
DELAYED UNTIL FRIDAY. PERHAPS MORE TIME NEEDED TO
BUILD A CASE. VERY STRANGE!”
( LAUGHTER ) YES, I AGREE, VERY STRANGE. FOR THE FUTURE COMMANDER IN
CHIEF TO USE SARCASTIC QUOTATIONS ABOUT THE
INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES HE WILL RELY ON. MR. TRUMP, YOU’RE NOT AN
OUTSIDER ANYMORE SHOOTING SPITBALLS FROM THE SIDELINES,
RIGHT? IN TWO WEEKS YOU’LL BE PRESIDENT
OF THE UNITED STATES. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO– YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GET
FACTS FROM YOUR INTELLIGENCE SERVICES TO KEEP ENEMIES FROM
KILLING US ALL. ( LAUGHTER )
AAAHHH. STILL, IT IS SUSPICIOUS THAT
THERE’S BEEN THIS MYSTERIOUS DELAY OF THE INTELLIGENCE
MEETING. I MEAN, WHY WAIT TILL FRIDAY? POSSIBLYBECAUSE THE INTELLIGENCE
MEETING WAS ALWAYS SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT’S AN INTERESTING FACT. YOU KNOW WHERE TRUMP COULD HAVE
LEARNED THAT? FROM AN INTELLIGENCE MEETING. INSTEAD, TRUMP HAS DECIDED TO
TRUST INTELLIGENCE FROM A MORE RELIABLE SOURCE: WIKILEAKS
FOUNDER AND HOBO ANDERSON COOPER, JULIAN ASSANGE. ( LAUGHTER )
AFTER WATCHING ASSANGE ON FOX NEWS, TRUMP TWEETED, “JULIAN
ASSANGE SAID A 14-YEAR-OLD COULD HAVE HACKED A PODESTA. AND THAT’S NOT EASY. WE KNOW THAT’S NOT EASY. MOST 14-YEAR-OLDS SURF THE
INTERNET WITH JUST ONE HAND. SPEAKING OF TRUMP’S TWITTER–
WHICH WE WILL BE SPEAK ABOUT FOR YEARS NOW– EVEN THOUGH TRUMP
HAS 18 MILLION FOLLOWERS, HE ONLY FOLLOWS 42 ACCOUNTS. HE DOESN’T EVEN FOLLOW BARACK
OBAMA– AND HE’S LITERALLY ABOUT TO FOLLOW BARACK OBAMA! BUT THIS WEEKEND, TRUMP FOLLOWED
SOMEBODY NEW ON TWITTER: THIS IS
TRUE. “EMERGENCY KITTENS,” A TWITTER
ACCOUNT DEVOTED TO ADORABLE CATS. THE FEED FEATURES CUTE KITTY
PHOTOS AND MEMES, LIKE THIS ONE THAT SAYS “YOU WIN AT LIFE IF
YOU CAT CUDDLES WITH YOU.” THAT MUST BE STRANGE FOR TRUMP
TO SEE– I MEAN, A MAN BEING GRABBED BY A PUSSY. IT’S SO UNUSUAL. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Jon: OH! OH! OOOOH!>>Stephen: ARE YOU OKAY? ARE YOU GOING TO BE OKAY?>>Jon: MAN, YOU PUT THAT OUT
THERE, DIDN’T YOU?>>Stephen: YOU DON’T PUT IT
OUT THERE, THEY WON’T PUT IT IN THERE. BUT STILL… ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) AND IT’S GOOD! OKAY. WE’LL SEE IF THAT MAKES AIR. DON’T KNOW WHAT CBS IS GOING TO
DO. BUT STILL, I THINK WE’VE GOT A
REAL OPPORTUNITY HERE. I SAY WE NEED TO CREATE A
TWITTER ACCOUNT WITH ACTUAL EMERGENCY KITTENS, ADORABLE CATS
WITH VITAL INFORMATION FOR THE NEW PRESIDENT, LIKE, “GLOBAL
WARMING COULD MAKE OCEAN LEVELS RISE UP TO TWO FEET BY THE END
OF THE CENTURY? I’M FELINE SCARED!”
OR “A NUCLEAR ARMED NORTH KOREA COULD BE A THREAT TO GLOBAL
STABILITY. AND THAT’S FUR REAL!”
OR, “THE NOR-MEWL-IZATION OF WHITE SU-PURRR-MECISTS IS
PAW-SIBLY A CAT-ASTROPHIC RISE OF THE FURRED REICH!”
YOU’RE WELCOME. YOU’RE WELCOME. WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW TONIGHT. KATE BECKINSALE IS HERE. BUT WHEN WE RETURN, I’LL HAVE
BREAKING NEWS FROM A 104 YEARS AGO. STICK AROUND.

  1. I remember when Democrats were claiming George Bush would start a war with North Korea over false accusations that they had or where developing nuclear weapons. And now Stephen Colbert is wondering how this coward Trump is going to handle a nuclear-armed North Korea. it seems like the left wants a couple Wars, one with North Korea and another with Russia. All based on false claims.

  2. Love you Colbert! This is officially my only source of political news. Now that we have a clown heading the US this is the best way to hear the latest from the hill. 😜

  3. Not sure what the new system will be but Obama-non-care is no answer to anything. The person who has to pay their own fees cannot afford medical care due to the high deductibles. Basically this is a very expensive type of policy to provide care only for major events like major accidents and such policies were always inexpensive before.
    The real problem is that medical care needs to remain in the hands of the doctor and the patient and not some person thousands of miles away who does not know the patient.

  4. Never mind that the term "Obamacare" was coined by a healthcare lobbyist and then pushed by the media and democrat liberals, right?

  5. Now, now – let's not pick on fourteen-year-olds. MOST people surf the internet with just one hand. (Also, most of the computers fourteen-year-olds have access to are deliberately blocking the content that is the entire purpose of the internet. I remember what it was like being a teenager and how boring the internet was. Then again, that was back when the internet was young, at a time when AOL was a thing and Wikipedia wasn't….)

  6. lmao Trump does talk kind of dumb ….the GOP is probably setting the ni press meetings and briefing avoidance up because they are going to keep him in a dungeon …I wonder if his daughter us really worried ….she should be I dont see this ending well

  7. Obama was a joke. Bad for the economy, bad for race relations, bad for international relations, bad for health care and forever lost hardworking Americans as Democrats.

  8. Who is on Stephen Colbert's right during these monologues? I thought Jon Batiste and Stay Human were on his left, but Stephen looks and reacts to his right a lot, maybe even more than he does to his left.

  9. Actually, I'm thinking that calling it "Trumpcare" might work because Trump likes to put his name on things. If he likes it, then he won't fight the name, and then it will forever be associated with the gutting of the health care system.

  10. Honestly, Stephen Colbert, as much as I love you, in the past I wouldn't have voted for you due to a lack of political experience and qualifications… but if you run in 2020, I will totally vote for you! Just tell me when you start organizing your campaign teams, I want in on that!

  11. oh please Democrats, listen to Obama, and don't help the GOP replace OBAMAcare; you are the ones that got us in this destructive healthcare in the first place. My healthcare, since Obamacare took effect, monthly price has gone up and my quality of healthcare has dropped greatly! Clinton a gracious looser? yeah after, the recount, after trying to get the electoral college not to vote him in, and not accepting defeat; she is far from a gracious loser. You are funny, but so much exaggeration for the sake of humor; that can be bad for those who seem to believe you outright without actually doing their own research. And the CIA has always told the public what the president wanted them to say. Bush it was WMDs, with Obama it is Russian hacking. Honestly out intelligence agency has not done very well since WMDs, look at how many mass shootings could have been stopped; but where not. San Bernardino and Orlando are two of the many.

  12. No, not, Steven. Bad move. Remember the zero presidency curse. Let it take the donald.
    Black Jack died in 76. 1 year short of 30.

  13. I love Colbert but I wish that the videos were made in better quality like 1080p instead of 720. lol I know Im a nerd

  14. Again, it is the worst sign of "I mean no good" when a government that just got into office has as its major policy to destroy what the previous president has done. And has nothing to put in its place.

  15. ACA is cool and all, it's nice to have health insurance I can't use because of a $2500 deductible that's well outside my financial abilities.

    So yeah, basically I'm losing nothing.

  16. trump will not  be ready for another  year NONE  WAS  DRAFTERING OR  WRITING   SHIT   SINCE THEY  I  DO NOT GET GET FOR   FOR MY  FELLOW AMERICAN  COMPTAYBLE TOMPRICE ARRIVE TO THE COMMUNITY  EMEPTY  HADED AND THEY RECALLED   TIMES FOR  QUESTIONON  HIS ETHICS  ON INSIDER TRADE   OF    OBTAING STOCK FOR     COMPANY   WHOM    HE  GOITHETHE STOCK AND THEN RE WRITTEN THE ALW INTHE HEALTH COMMITTE OF THE  HOUSE    SO EXCEPT  SHIT  X SHITE –  SHITE UNIVAL  SHIT HEALTH AND CARE  SHIT POLICE AND  CONGRESS  INFOMRD THAT  OBAMA  CUT MEDICARE   JIDGE   WITH I TRILLION  DALLORS    TO TASE THE TRUMP HOB=NOTABLE COURT  AND THEN  HE  OBAMA  CUT MEICAD  440  ,000.000.000.00   BILINS  FORM MEICAID  SO THEESE WELOFARE  WELFRE RCEIEPNET  DO NOT   DO NOT   TOO UCH  BNEFITS AND  GET THE OAZZY   ASS WORKING  ASS ,  SAY  GOD BLESS TRUMP FOR ALL    TO STUMLATE THE ECOCMY AND LESS   STEAALING  FORM HIS  BUDGET

  17. Since Republican Senators are a bunch of dumb cunts. Calling it trunpcare will make them want to not cancel it because lord trump said so. Seriously those dumb cunts need to be taken back to preschool.

  18. The democrats put-out a health care plan that wasn't thought-through very well. Now, the democrat's affordable care act has turned into The "unaffordable healthcare" program, is failing the American People and has fallen apart! Trump's Administration is creating a Health Care Program that will benefit Everyone!

  19. I thought Obama was a political genius. They should name it TrumpDontCare. That way people can remember why they got screwed on healthcare…

  20. Trumpcare will kill Americans and make the 1% wealthier. Would you want your name attached to it? Trump loves branding everything but Trumpcare. The 1% will be off the hook. It's always been about the 1% not the sick and the poor.

  21. Stephen ! english is my second language ,and u `re giving me headaches ….but i love it .apecare ,bumcare ,dumbcare or pussycare ,they all belong to trumpcare anyway….!!!!!!! and guess ,during foreplay ,where trump`s tiny hands….inside or outside????…..one in each !!!! and…when playing golf which hole is his first choice ??….ivanka`s !!!! and which room trump likes to grasp a pussy in ?….locker room!!!!!! and when he `s got an orgasm what would he grunt ???…"fuck america …. great again" !!!!!and what is he going to build the wall with ?…his mouth !!!!and who wants the terrorists to attack america most????….donald trump!!! why ? just to prove that his "ban" is right .this ape is your president ? this mentally- ill…. psychopath is an absolute disgrace for your country xxxxx

  22. From CBO:

    Trumpcare:

    2018 → 14 million uninsured
    2020 → 21 million uninsured
    2026 → 24 million uninsured

    #MAGA?

  23. Well everyone is already calling it Trumpcare, wait until they pass it, it'll be like passing a kidney stone, very painful.

  24. Holy shit, the shots fired XD. You can hear the shots being fired around the globe, but at the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, it's like he's holding two mini-guns with infinite ammo.

  25. All jokes aside. If we have to water information down into the form of memes or posts of 150 characters or less and deliver them, in secret, to "The President" in the form of kitten pictures and their captions; so be it. If we are stuck with him, and he is too broken to be fixed, then we will just have to accommodate him on his level, otherwise we won't get anywhere. Real Kitten Emergencies could be a perfect compromise to this most unfortunate circumstance. I can't stress enough that this is not a joke. But a legitimate proposition.

  29. Ah, but, Stephen… he didn't want his name on this "Ron" Ryan's replacement. Trump had little to do with it… Ryan & Co had SEVEN years to put it together… Trump distinctly didn't want his name on it when he realised it had little that his "base" would like… he would be p1ssing off so many people if that passed and millions of people suddenly realised that "Trumpcare" was to blame for their loss…and in some cases, death of relatives due to "Trumpcare" – and a terrible replacement for "Obamacare" (the ACA… for anyone still unsure out there in internet world… 😉 ). So he wanted it called "GOPCare". He didn't really try to get it through… he left it all to Ryan. But Ryan's not stupid… he made sure to pull Trump into it, telling people that he had just as much input to the new bill… Trump was checkmated… he either had to admit that he had f-all input into the bill OR admit he didn't know what was in the new bill… OR admit that he didn't support the new bill now that he knew what was in it… Instead we had Steve Bannon do what Steve Bannon only knows what to do… he went on the attack…he was off the lease but Trump had lost control of him. So he leaked the Paul Ryan story… and Ryan laughed and swallowed it saying that he and Trump were now basically BEST of friends and it was all water under the bridge. If you wrote this shit in a play or movie, no one would believe it…

  30. i feel like colbert only has that black guy on the show so it wont seem like a racist show. the black dude literally has no useful input besides sometimes playing the piano and laughing at everything he says and saying yea

  31. President Obama is right Stephen, changing government program quickly is bad for the people. i am Indonesian so i know.

  32. Hell no It's bad enough to watcht this clown as president. I don't want to have anything in my possession that has that name 😡.
