Today in Trump Stupid on Twitter:

The Democrat Governor.of Minnesota said “The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is no longer affordable!” – And, it is lousy healthcare.

Democratic Governor. Democrat is the noun, Democratic is the adjective.

But that’s not the stupid. The stupid is “And, it is lousy healthcare.” It’s not healthcare at all you imbecile! It’s a system for distributing and financing healthcare, it’s not healthcare itself. College loans are not “lousy education” because they’re not education at all, they’re a (bad) system for distributing and financing higher education.

Plus of course there’s the fact that health care was not affordable before the ACA and it won’t be affordable after Trump and the Republicans trash it.

Other than that, right on the money.
