Trump Tweets Montage of McCain Pledging Obamacare Repeal: ‘My Oh My Has He Changed’
President Donald Trump was back on Twitter targeting Sen. John McCain Monday night for his decision to vote against the latest GOP attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
Trump tweeted a video montage of McCain pledging to repeal and replace Obamacare at rallies, in interviews and campaign ads — with the caption “My oh my has he changed-complete turn from years of talk!”

McCain came out in opposition to the GOP health bill — spearheaded by his Senate colleagues Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy — last week with a statement claiming he could not “in good conscience vote” for the law.
Trump has repeatedly targeted McCain since, in both tweets and his rally in Alabama on Friday.
On Monday, Maine Sen. Susan Collins joined McCain in announcing her opposition to Graham-Cassidy, based on the CBO analysis of the bill that found it would slash Medicaid.
And with now three Republicans officially voting against the bill (McCain and Collins join Rand Paul), it is likely dead on arrival.
