President Donald Trump is doing just great after the Republican healthcare bill failed to make it to a vote Friday, thank you so much. No heads will roll for that humiliating defeat. Especially not the Just Cuts noggin of House Speaker Paul Ryan. It's all love and affection and onwards and upwards on Pennsylvania Avenue. SEE ALSO: Trumpcare might be gone but the internet is memeing it to death just in case So, please don't read anything into the fact Trump told his 27 million Twitter followers to watch
Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox News at 9 p.m Saturday, in which the host absolutely eviscerated the Speaker and called for him to resign. Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2017 It was just coincidence, surely, that Jeanine Pirro tore Ryan limb from limb. "Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the house.The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill." #openingstatement pic.twitter.com/75WbI4mcYX — Jeanine Pirro (@JudgeJeanine) March 26, 2017 "I want to be clear: this is not on President Trump. No one expected a business man to completely understand the nuances ... of Washington," Pirro went on, fulsomely defending the president in a way Trump definitely did not intend for America to hear. The Fox anchor insisted she had not spoken to Trump directly. Nevertheless, in her honest opinion, he is handling the healthcare collapse "with dignity." White House press secretary Sean Spicer downplayed Trump's tweet earlier Saturday. According to the
Washington Post, Spicer said Trump tweeted only because he was a fan of Pirro's show. In any case, no one noticed that little Trump-Pirro coincidence apart from most of the internet.

The British government said Sunday that its security services must have access to encrypted messaging applications such as WhatsApp, as it revealed that the service was used by the man behind the parliament attack.
