Whenever Trump plays in a shiny new truck, a Republican healthcare bill dies

Toot toot! If you see Trump playing truck driver while sitting in a big shiny truck, you can bet a Republican healthcare bill has just failed. It's happened twice so far.

According to the A.V. Club:

The first incidence was way back on March 23 when the president's healthcare bill was dealt its first seemingly mortal blow while still in the House. The president responded then by sitting in a truck, honking a horn.

And on Monday, during the Made in America product tour at the White House, Trump was playing fireman in a gleaming red firetruck and waving out the window. "Where's the fire?" he asked Vice President Mike Pence. "Put it out fast!" Meanwhile, on the same day, the healthcare replacement bill failed yet again.

The play day didn't go unnoticed by Republicans. In one of CNN writer David Wright's tweets, quoting a Republican lawmaker: "Top Republican: [Trump] was playing with a firetruck & trying on a cowboy hat as the bill was collapsing, and he had no clue."
