Last Friday, Donald Trump was forced to pull the Republican Health Care Bill from the floor of the House of Representatives because it failed to gained enough support to ensure it would pass. Trump's decision marked a major failure for the administration and the GOP, which is not done being called out by the media.

MSNBC on Trump

For the better past of the last eight years, Republicans have made opposing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, an almost prerequisite to join the party and run for office. Promising to repeal and replace Obamacare became second nature for any Republican politician, and was one of the top talking points for Donald Trump during his campaign for president.

After Trump pulled off the upset and defeated Hillary Clinton to become the new commander in chief, it was only a matter of time before the GOP-controlled Congress pushed for an attack on Obamacare. However, after failing to get on the same page, Trump and Republican lawmakers gave up their replacement efforts only two and a half weeks after revealing their plan. As seen during the March 27 edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, one host is not willing to let them forget about it.

Discussing Donald Trump's decision to end their health care replacement effort after only two and a half weeks, co-host Joe Scarborough referred to the president as "pathetic." "How do you change one-fifth of the economy in 17 days?" Scarborough wondered, before adding, "This is the gang that couldn't shoot straight."

"You know, we've all been very concerned about the White House, concerned about Steve Bannon, saying he's a Leninist, he's going to tear down the government, the challenges to the courts, questioning the courts, calling the press the enemy of the people," Joe Scarborough continued.

"I think we should, 60 or so days in, just stop and go, 'Wait, 'hold on a second,'" he noted.

Double down

Joe Scarborough then went on to point out that Donald Trump has been unsuccessful in almost all of his major attempts at change, citing his failed "Muslim ban" executive order, and the aforementioned health care bill. The former Republican congressman then went on to mock the billionaire real estate mogul, using his own version of the Police song "Every Breathe You Take." "Every step he takes, every move he makes, every tweet he breaks," Scarborough said, concluding, "the press is there every second, hounding him." As of press time, it's unknown when Republicans will push to repeal Obamacare for a second time, but the former host of "The Apprentice" has indicated that he'd rather shift his focus onto tax reform.
