In the eight months that #Donald Trump has been President of the United States, he's caused many higher-ups in the party to question whether his style [VIDEO]will be good for the GOP brand moving forward. In recent days, the president has made even more decisions that have left the Republican Party in a position where they have to explain themselves.

Wallace on Ryan

It all started when Donald Trump announced his plan to run for president [VIDEO]back in the summer of 2015 on the floor of the famous Trump Tower in New York City. With his family behind him, the former host of "The Apprentice" quickly made headlines for referring to illegal immigrants as "rapists" and "murderers." Despite the negative attention that would surround him in the year that followed, Trump was able to weather the storm and become the GOP nominee.

Just a few short months later and Trump went on to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, giving the Republican Party control of the White House and all of Congress. However, even with GOP control, Trump has made moves that have not gone over well with his own party, including a recent deal with Democratic leaders on the debt ceiling and funding the government. In a move that took many by surprise, House Speaker #Paul Ryan came out in support of Trump, which was met with ridicule by #Nicolle Wallace during a September 7 broadcast on MSNBC.

During Thursday's edition of "Deadline: White House" on MSNBC, host Nicolle Wallace mocked Paul Ryan for constantly cowering to Donald Trump, even if it meant going against the positions he's held for years as a conservative Republican. "If you’re Paul Ryan’s adviser...what do you tell them to do today?" Wallace asked her panel guests.

When a panel guest agreed with Paul Ryan for backing the president, Nicolle Wallace hit back. "With his tail between his legs walk out and admit he was totally humiliated by the president that he’s taken guff from for seven months?" she said. "Why can't Paul Ryan be a man and say, 'he's treated me like crap. He's cyber bullied me,'" Wallace continued to wonder.

While some in the mainstream media are questioning Republican leaders and how they have responded to the current administration, Donald Trump appears to be comfortable going rogue in how he has handled the normal political game. Though Trump has created chaos on the political right, the left has continued to push back strongly, which is reflective in the latest round of polling that shows just a 35 percent approval rating for the commander in chief.
