President Trump tweeted that "Obamacare" is "dead" four times between Thursday and Friday. Trump has been referring to the Affordable Care Act as "dead" since 2013, but it turns out he likes to use that adjective for a few other things, too.

Why it matters: It suggests that he considers these things so egregious and failing that they're no longer in existence. This is especially problematic when something becomes "dead" to Trump because it criticizes him or doesn't serve him — like the countless media outlets he condemns.
