President Trump’s first executive order, other than appointments, related to Obamacare. It directed agencies to interpret Obamacare regulations so as to impose as little financial burden as possible. CNN explained:
Within hours of taking the oath of office, President Donald Trump on Friday night signed an executive order aimed at trying to fulfill one of his most impassioned campaign promises: Rolling back Obamacare.
Republicans have been railing against the health care law for years…
“Railing against” is code. Republicans “rail,” Democrats don’t. To “rail” means “to revile or scold in harsh, insolent, or abusive language.”
…using “repeal and replace Obamacare” as a political rallying cry to gin up support within the GOP base. [Emphasis added.]
Seriously? The Oxford English Dictionary defines “gin something up”:
Generate or increase something, especially by dubious or dishonest means:
‘the trade press has ginned up a controversy’
‘the reason for this kind of fearmongering is obvious—it’s a way to gin up support for radical reforms’
Is CNN incapable of reporting any news story involving Republicans in a straightforward way? It seems that way.
