While Republicans have majority-control in the House of Representatives and the Senate, Donald Trump has been unable to sell the GOP Health Care Bill to enough conservative lawmakers to ensure it passes a floor vote. As Republicans fight with themselves over the issue, one host on MSNBC was quick to point out the hypocrisy.

MSNBC on health care

During the 2016 presidential election, repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, continued to remain the number one priority for the Republican Party. Donald Trump led the charge, and made attacking the current health care law one of the corner stones of his campaign.

After pulling off the upset and defeating Hillary Clinton last November, it appeared that the future of Obamacare was bleak. However, after Republicans revealed their long-awaited replacement plan, it was universally panned, with many conservatives pushing back at the bill in question. After failing to convince enough Republicans to support the bill, Thursday's planned vote was postponed until Friday, with the former host of "The Apprentice" threatening to keep Obamacare in place unless the party came together and voted before the weekend. As reported by Mediaite on March 24, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough went off on the GOP for their total confusion and hypocrisy on the issue.

On Monday's edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, host and former Repubican congressman Joe Scarborough didn't hold back his thoughts about the Republican's struggle to pass new health care reform.

"This was such an obviously stupid play done by somebody or a group of people who didn’t know how Washington worked," Scarborough said. "When they decided to lead with healthcare, why did they decide to lead with Paul Ryan’s version of healthcare?” Scarborough wondered, before noting, "It was completely opposite of what Donald Trump promised every day on the campaign trail.”

Not stopping there, Joe Scarborough then ripped into Donald Trump for making similar mistakes that were made during Bill Clinton's first term.

"It made no sense," he said, while explaining, "so much of this was the same mistake neophyte president's make when they come into Washington, D.C."

Moving forward

As of press time, Republicans are waiting to hold a vote on their health care bill, the American Health Care Act, which is scheduled to take place later in the day.

It's unknown whether or not the GOP will have enough support to pass the bill to the Senate, but it's likely that Donald Trump will lash out if it doesn't.
