How the Republican Health Care Bill Came and Went: The Daily Show

Welcome toThe Daily Show.Thank you so much for tuning in. I’m Trevor Noah.
Thank you, everybody. Our guest tonight,
legendary rapper and producer
of the Starz hit showPower,50 Cent is here, everybody. -(cheering, applause)
-♪ G-G-G-G-G-G ♪ ♪ G-Unit! ♪ And I am so glad
we could get 50 tonight. Because last night
Senate Republicans definitely could not. NEWSWOMAN:Overnight,
the Republican plan
to replace Obamacare
officially falling short,
with two more GOP senatorsunexpectedly pulling
their support.
For seven years,
Republican lawmakers have vowed to overturn Obamacare,
but this morning their latest plan has come
to a screeching halt. No…! Trumpcare is no more! Now I have no idea
how I’m gonna die. Oh… I don’t know why
we’re surprised, people. Let’s be honest, we all knew
the words “Trump” and “care” were never destined
to be together. Just ask Eric. -(laughter)
-So last night… the Senate plan
officially collapsed. And luckily for Republicans,
they had parliamentary genius and foreskin impersonator
Mitch McConnell in their corner. The Senate’s plan B
for Trumpcare seems dead, and plan C
had barely been introduced before it was slain as well. GOP senators balking at Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell’s proposal to ditch a replacement
for Obamacare, instead just going to outright
repeal without a replacement.At least three
Republican senators say
they will not support
that option.
♪ Ooh, all the Senate ladies ♪ ♪ All the Senate ladies ♪ ♪ Hold the plan up,
but no, no, no ♪ ♪ No, no, no, no, no, no ♪ -(cheering, applause)
-♪ No, no, no… ♪ Yeah! NOAH: Republicans
have been saying forever that Obamacare is going to fail. “It’s in a death spiral!” But after years
of them trying to kill it, it is somehow the only thing
that’s still around. All of their healthcare plans
collapse immediately. And they’re like,
“Obamacare is dead. “Check outourplan. “Oh, my God. Plan? “Wake up, plan. Wake up! “Oh, no! Our plan won’t wake up! Is there an Obamacare
in the house?!” If you’re a Republican,
like, today sucked balls. You have to admit. Uh, it actually…
it actually all reminds me of something
a wise man once said. Nobody knew that healthcare
could be so complicated. (laughter) (applause, cheering) (whistling, shouting) From the mouth of babes. (laughter) But the president was
at least partly right, because it’s true,
no one knew how complicated healthcare could be once Donald Trump got involved. Because… because,
I don’t know if you remember, but before he stepped in,
Republicans had a strategy for destroying Obamacare. NEWSMAN:A new strategy
is gaining steam
on Capitol Hill
that would quickly repeal
most of President Obama’s
Affordable Care Act,
but delay the effects
for up to two years.
Yeah, that was
the original plan. They would take it apart,
but slowly, over time. Their plan was basically
to treat healthcare like Jenga. Gradually dismantle it,
piece by piece, so when it finally collapsed, it would have been
someone else’s problem. And then Donald Trump
came along, and he’s like,
“Oh, boy! Jenga bowling!” Under the prodding
of President Trump, Republicans decided
not to just repeal and worry about replace later,
but try to do it in one bucket. It’ll be repeal and replace. It will be essentially
simultaneously. It will be various segments,
you understand, but will most likely be on
the same day or the same week, but probably the same day. Could be the same hour. So we’re gonna do
repeal and replace. (like Trump): In fact,
it’s happening right now. It just happened.
It just happened. To understand this…
just think of it like this. Donald Trump is basically
an unlikable Baby Groot. -Right?
-(laughter) Republicans were like,
“All right, Donald, “here’s the plan. Repeal. No replace.” He was like, “Replace.” “No, no, no, no, no, Donald. “No, no, no. No replace. -Repeal.”
-“Replace.” “No, you’re not listening! -Repeal.”
-“Repeal… and replace.” “Oh!” There’s a clearer reason
that the Republicans just suffered today’s failure, and that reason lives
in the White House. To add insult to injury, while the GOP’s healthcare
dreams were crumbling, Trump wasn’t even helping. He was hosting a play-play party
at the White House, celebrating something called
“Made in America Week,” where the president basically
checked out guitars, wrestled with baseball bats,
and of course, his favorite activity,
fake driving a truck. Where’s the fire? Put it out fast. Yeah, and everyone was, like, “The fire’s behind you
in the White House.” Like, it felt–
you know what it felt? It felt like the whole event
was designed to convince Donald Trump
to take up any other job. What about baseball?
No, no, you don’t want? You want to be a fireman?
Anything, man. We’ll give you anything. I mean, at one point,
he even got an applause just for putting on a hat. (applause) Yeah! Yeah! I told you he’d get
something right eventually. Yeah! And that’s where we are. And that’s how the Republican
healthcare plan came and went. With them failing
to get their votes, and the president playing
pretend in the White House. So the truth is,
for the Republicans, it’s not looking good. It’s July. Their healthcare plan
is officially dead. They have no
infrastructure bill, and they’re months behind
on tax reform. At some point,
they have to admit that their world
is burning down. Fortunately,
for the Republicans, they have a fireman
on their team.

  1. "All the Senate ladies, all the Senate ladies. Not for the plan, oh no no no no no, oh no no no no no no no." LMAO

  2. I love this show but the Youtube channel needs a bit of fixing. The intro and outro are far too loud and the main segment is a lot quieter.

  3. ahh republicunts: the party of racist, misogynist, classist FAILURES can't pass shit in 6 months WHEN THEY CONTROL EVERY BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. what a pathetic laughing stock piece of shit party.

    and remember how he pretended to "save Carrier jobs"???? today is the 6 month anniversary of him taking (yes he took it, didn't earn that shit) office, AND CARRIER IS FIRING 338 PEOPLE TODAY! ahhh sweet irony of the dumb fucks that voted for him. fake news? FACTS YOU IDIOT TRUMPTARDS

  4. That's what Trumps presidency is all about. Accomplishing nothing, while getting applause for meaningless things as if he just made potty for the first time.

  5. Trump: being a president is hard, healthcare is complicated, speaking coherent sentences is hard, getting an orange tan is hard. Lol
    So, we've to cut this joke-of-the-world some slack.

  6. i'm from germany and i think trumps approach to this is actually good.
    he thought that it was unthinkable to just get rid of obamacare and to leave people without insurance. thats why they had to replace it immediately, which was too much work and they fucked up.
    he fucked up his own party because he wanted to do something good.
    so in the end he didn't screw america for once, which is kinda nice i guess haha

  7. None of the bills they create are dead until the majority is dead. Stop lying to us. Stop giving people false hope. Until people get off their ass and flip the houses in 2018 they will keep going after every single one of us. This bill is dead, but republican healthcare and the crusade to remove Obamacare is not dead. Not even fucking close to it.

  8. The fact that he was not okay with simply repealing it, but wanted to replace it with what he hoped would be something better actually speaks in Trump's favor. Which is something I did not see myself sayign about Trump (not a fan). Everything else is a complete debacle though.

  9. China's one party system is almost starting to look desirable right now.. ffs I mis the old Republican party when bush was president (can't believe I'm saying this).

  10. America. A unique country which has god knows how much money to bomb other countries, however providing free healthcare to their own citizens is too much?

  11. as ineffectual as some left-leaning activism can be, I certainly hope that people calling their senators had something to do with the bill's failure.

  12. Republicans were hoping that the media would be sufficiently distracted by DT that they can pass a bill that would kick tens of millions of Americans out of health insurance…

  13. Republicans, the party of "feed the corporations, not the people", hate Obamacare because they can't come up with anything that does better service for the people. Point blank. It's all about their lack of popularity.

  14. It's so insane, the republicans are wasting time trying to take healthcare away from Americans, instead of trying to make American lives better.

  15. its like he's in the truman show…. like only someone with A LOT of money, is paying off tons of people to make Trump think he isnt crazy… but it's the world whose crazy "look at these people cheering me" just validating a false reality, while everyone else picks up the slack…

  16. Thank God for the internet! Whenever i watch a clip about Trump, i have to watch some Obama clips to wash Trump's Ineptness out of my brain.

  17. That EKG tracing is a little off. That person needs a cardiologist now! Oh! But wait! No healthcare for the masses!

  18. Here is my 2 cents. Get rid of the 3rd party insurance companies who are taking millions from the people that need it. Then we all pay the Hospitals a monthly premium when we are well, because they are doing their job. When we are sick you don't pay anything. Then the Hospitals have a vested interest in making sure you get well. We already pay insurance companies when we are well so what's the difference? The difference is wellness industries would actually try and make you better instead of convincing you to purchase drugs/services that keep you hooked to the system.

  19. Their only agenda is to undo anything that Obama accomplished. This administration is playing on the hatred and division of this country.

  20. How about Repeal of the Republican Party once and for all time. they have had their time in the Sun but the Sun is setting now.

  21. Hurrrr ray. I can keep paying 900 a month now. And I wish I could of kept my doctor but o well. I love socialism. I can't wait to be only valued at 45 000 at the age of 50. Like in other socialism healthcare. If I cost over well fuck me silly I'm going die… I can't wait till socialism brings us starvation. Like in Venezuela as socialism produces stagnation the inflation then collapse. Why do I want this cause I wanna watch you liberal fuckers suffer at your stupidity. this though it's a soul thing. And ohhhh how smug liberals will wear a mark on right hand forehead you have no fucking idea the deceit that is coming no idea at all..

  22. The hilarious thing is that no one knows what the mythical "steps 2 and 3" in Trump's supposed 3-step plan is, and no one even bothers asking.

  23. 5:51 – "At some point they have to admit that their world is burning down"
    Trump – "You underestimate my willful blindness!"

  24. Remember when the daily show was about making fun of the news instead of just mocking trump? I remember when I used to actually learn shit watching this; when was the last time you even watched the daily show and learned a thing you didn't already know? I miss jon Stewart.

  25. I tried looking up that hat scene and it seems that the applause behind it was because that hat was one of the most expensive cowboy hats made just for Donald Trump.

  26. Dead bill huh? Well it just passed in the senate due to the Ministry of Darkness getting back on the same page just in time….soooo yeah, I guess a bunch of people just got "trumped" again. smh

  27. In fairness, he didn't think the job would be as difficult to that which he was accustomed.
    "..This is more work than my previous life. I thought it would be easier." – Said the big dumb, tiny-handed, backwoods clown.

  28. Whoever voted Trump(which means every other american), earned everything that came and is yet to come. Good Luck you guys ! <3

  29. You know what tho? I hate Trump but I'm glad he forced republicans to work for repeal and replace simultaneously bc those fuckers were really about to screw people over slowly but surely and then let someone else deal with the fallout.

  30. Before you say Oh my God, think about what got the health care system there in the first place. It is looking at the holistic person. What made them get there – what did they have to overcome – and what new ideas and truths evolved. If our goal IS to forever evolve – we must do just that. If we are fortunate to still be the on this Earth – there is a reason for that. A reason guided by something bigger we might not be able to understand. But health care is just that. Complicated. It is necessary to look at the whole person – where they have been, what they learned, and how that transforms them to pursue their ultimate calling they have felt since birth.

  31. This is too harsh of a judgement. What do we all know – something we all know to be true. It is looking at the intentions of a person. Trump might need to get some help and advice – but look at who he said are always upright and well intended. It is not the old geezers he has in his office. It is who he always said would help him along the way. Let's not turn a blind eye to the truth. What we ALL agreed uniformly was the truth. What we died for because we believe it was destined to be. The refuse to give up this American dream and think millions died with honor and vain. THAT is the ultimate failure and tra defy. Never forget your past- but let it help give you strength to move forward for what the greater good and people wanted. For a better and more glorious earth. Please. Please. Please. Don't silence The voices of those not here. For though you might not see them – they are hear and are rolling over in their graves hearing this. The idea that America will not thrive. Because we will.

  32. You know, I’m starting to see the GOP’s support of him as their presidential candidate as a brilliant long term move. They knew they didn’t have anyone that could beat Hillary in a popularity contest so they pushed him in front, knowing how bad he’d be. And in four years, Americans on both sides will be so desperate for ANYTHING better that it won’t matter who they put in front of them!

  33. He mentioned that the GOP was months behind in introducing a tax reform and now it's October and I saw an ad before watching this video about the tax reform bill being in congress

  34. I used to ask myself why does his eyes match his hair. Then i realized its probably from those glasses they give you spray tan

  35. All they wanted was to make sure some poor billionaire in the Ritz Carlton didn't have to pay for the medical care that some schmuck working unpaid overtime making money for the billionaire's company needs because the billionaire didn't want to pay an extra cent per person to meet basic work safety standards! Have you people no hearts? D=
    Those poor, shiftless, golfing lardasses… sniffle

  36. It seems that pretty soon the USA will becone a third world country with dictator in chief God help America.. that hat looked good on Trump it does suit him

  37. I think Trump has infected you somehow.
    You are from Africa, located in the USA trying to interfere with its system. Your colleagues keep doing videos about censorship, racism and human rights. Eventually, we aren't allowed to watch your TV show outside the USA using your website or Comedy Central service just because at the moment we are located outside the USA. A message will say: SORRY 'BOUT THAT
    This video is not available from your location.
    Are you kidding me? maybe you should start making jokes about yourself first and about your hypocrisy then you can talk about racism and human rights.

  38. Ideal job for Trump hat model. Solves the problem of his strange hair looking ridiculous. And realeases all sentient being from headache for not longer worrying about what he might do as president
