Trump again mocks Sen. John McCain, brags that Republicans 'gutted' healthcare reform

One of the most unforgivable actions taken by President Donald Trump,  our idiot 'n chief, was his destruction of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. Trump has bragged about destroying health care for a lot of people. So it is important to keep up on his actions or in-actions on health care. -SJ Otto
 WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 27:  (L-R) Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) hold a news conference to say they would not support a 'Skinny Repeal' of health care at the U.S. Capitol July 27, 2017 in Washington, DC. The Republican senators said they would not support any legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare unless it was guaranteed to go to conference with the House of Representatives.

From the Daily Kos:

By Hunter 
Republican Sen. John McCain continues to remain in Arizona, battling brain cancer. National Republican leader and manifestly unfit president Donald Trump continues to mock and belittle him, this time singling McCain out in a Saturday rally in Nevada for his vote against a Republican bill repealing the Affordable Care Act, the healthcarereform law widely known as "Obamacare."
"Nobody talked to him. Nobody needed to, and then he walked in: thumbs-down. It’s alright, because we’ve essentially gutted it anyway," Trump said of ObamaCare at the rally.
Trump was in Nevada to campaign for McCain's colleague Sen. Dean Heller, who has offered no apparent public comment about his party's leader continuing to publicly sneer at McCain. Heller has also has long attempted to play both sides of the the healthcare debate hemself, so he may have been even more alarmed at Trump bragging to his Nevada constituents that the law has been "gutted."
Trump has at this point taken to attacking John McCain on a regular basis, during his public speeches. Daughter Meghan McCain responded to a similar Trump attack on her father last week as "gross."
