House Speaker Paul Ryan, not content with simply killing the Affordable Care Act, decided Thursday night was the right moment to resurrect the deceased dab and promptly kill that, too. Ryan was standing on a stage in an ill-fitting suit with CNN cameras pointed toward him when he performed his version of the dab, prompted by someone's apparent need for proof that Ryan even knows what a dab
UGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH. Ryan then had the audacity to act like he's always known what a dab
is was, refuting that whole sneeze story from last week. "He wasn't doing a dab, by the way," Ryan said of the teen filmed attempting his own dab in a photo. "It looked like he was sneezing."
Thankfully, a TON of people promptly called Ryan out for his lame attempt at seeming youthful and hip and cool and whatnot:
As for the Affordable Care Act, i.e. that other thing being killed, Ryan was confronted with the reality of that decision during CNN's town hall event Thursday night:
Jeff Jeans, a lifelong Republican, told Ryan he was a small business owner and had been diagnosed with cancer at age 49. Given six weeks to live, Jeans was able to secure treatment thanks to the Affordable Care Act. "I want to thank President Obama from the bottom of my heart," he told Ryan directly, "because I would be dead if it weren't for him." But, hey, don't worry everyone! Paul Ryan knows what a dab is!
