Here's what's happening today in the world of politics:

Trump tweets about health care  

--President Donald Trump must have been watching the Sunday morning talk shows because he took to Twitter around 8:30 a.m. to forecast the passage of his health care bill in the Senate. 

"Republican Senators will not let the American people down! ObamaCare premiums and deductibles are way up - it was a lie and it is dead!" he posted. 

The American Health Care Act passed the House last week but Senate passage seems it could be a more challenging feat for TrumpCare. 

Where is Kellyanne Conway? SNL wants to know

No doubt a dig at rumors she's been sidelined due to controversial messaging and alternative facts, included a claim that microwaves can act as surveillance devices. 

"There are many ways to surveil each other now,unfortunately" she said. "There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life."

Conway's appearances on news shows throughout Trump's campaign and in the weeks following was ubiquitous.
