Shep Smith lambastes Trump for claiming ‘Obamacare is dead’: ‘It is still the law of the land’ (The Raw Story)

Prior to holding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s hand in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump spoke to press and told them that they shouldn’t even bother covering the Affordable Care Act anymore because it’s “dead.”

“Obamacare is finished,” the president said during a cabinet meeting. “It‘s dead. It’s gone. It’s no longer. You shouldn’t mention it. It’s gone. There’s no such thing anymore.”

But as Fox News’ Shep Smith pointed out, that statement is categorically untrue.

“It is, actually, still the law of the land,” Smith said. “It has not been repealed.”
