NYT’s Blow Explodes at GOP Over ACA: ‘Hate Obama So Much They’d Rather Die of Disease’

March 14th, 2017 10:55 AM

New York Times columnist Charles Blow went on another Twitter rant Monday, attacking the GOP again for being “on the wrong side of history.” This time, it was over the Republicans fight to repeal Obamacare. Blow actually claimed that Republicans were so “clouded by partisan hatred” in their hatred of Obama, that “they’d rather die of disease” than “be kept alive” by a plan bearing his name.

With the hyperbolic way Blow and the media have talked about Obamacare repeal, you would think that no one had access to medical care before the bill passed.

In a follow up tweet, Blow called Trump “boy” and ordered him to take a seat, after he tweeted out a report showing that Obama spent 77 million dollars to promote the Affordable Care Act.

Adding that the president was a “parasite.”

Blow’s strong rebuke of Republicans is perfectly balanced with his unwillingness to actually listen to any of them. As a guest analyst on CNN, Blow has ordered the network to take Trump surrogates off the air, and boasted that he “didn’t care” what Trump supporters thought.

In his NYT column, Blow reiterated his intolerance for the other side, saying he had “no patience” for talking to Trump voters (or “backwards-thinking bigots” as he called them.)
