By wagering that MSNBC host Ed Schultz isn’t currently enrolled in Obamacare, TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch set in motion a lengthy Twitter battle that would end with the personality agreeing to appear on MSNBC Thursday to debate the health care law.
As of Wednesday night, it appeared that Loesch is scheduled to be the lead guest on Schultz’s show Thursday. She ended up having a phone conversation with Schultz on Wednesday night.
Loesch’s initial jab appeared to stem from Schultz’s attempt to use Glenn Beck’s recently revealed health problems to promote Obamacare.
Twitchy outlined the chaos that ensued online:
How much you wanna bet @WeGotEd isn't on Obamacare?— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) November 12, 2014
So I just had a conversation with @WeGotEd on the phone. We disagreed on Obamacare. We’re figuring out tomorrow night.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) November 13, 2014
He said that he’s “not backing down” from @glennbeck . I didn’t realize that this was a “back down” kinda thing. Should be fun.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) November 13, 2014
And Schultz had some nice things to say about Loesch:
Just talked to Dana , very nice and professional person. We are going to work on this tomorrow morning . Tech issues .. All good !— Ed Schultz (@WeGotEd) November 13, 2014
One thing is certain, the two TV hosts will have a hard time finding common ground on the issue of Obamacare.
