Despite claiming to be a great negotiator, Donald Trump was unable to get enough Republicans on board to support the party's new Health Care Bill. While many have blamed Trump for the bill's failure, one host on Fox News was there to come to his defense.

Hannity on Trump

With Donald Trump now in the White House and Republicans controlling both the House of Representatives and the Senate, it was only a matter of time before the GOP used their majority to push for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. After just over two months in the White House, the former host of "The Apprentice" stood with House Speaker Paul Ryan to promote the American Health Care Act, despite the bill being universally panned by liberals, most conservatives, and even the Congressional Budget Office.

The bill was short of at least a dozen votes, so Trump pulled it from the House floor, setting up yet another setback for his administration. These issues were discussed during the March 24 edition of "Hannity" on Fox News.

Starting his show on Friday night was Fox News host Sean Hannity, who was quick to absolve Donald Trump of all blame for the GOP health care bill not being a success. "After seven long years of Republicans promising to repeal and replace Obamacare, not getting the job done is unacceptable," Hannity said. "This is not Trump's failure," Hannity insisted, before stating, "The president went above and beyond, did everything in his power to get this bill across the finish line."

Sean Hannity then ripped into House Republicans who he blamed in part for the lack of success of repealing and replacing Obamacare.

"Make sure the bill is not released until you have consensus on the bill," Hannity suggested, while noting, "This would take a lot of the ugliness out of the process." As expected, the Fox News host also took a shot at Democrats, who celebrated earlier in the day due to the bill being pulled. "Don't worry, Democrats," Hannity remarked, before adding, "You're going to be forced to own this mess because you created this mess."

Moving forward

Sean Hannity attempting to remove responsibility from Donald Trump comes at an odd time when even the president himself said he was all in on the GOP health care bill.

While Hannity and other hard-line supporters of the president appear willing to stick by his side, the pressure is mounting and doesn't look to be backing off anytime soon.
