"Well, you're probably done": Even Fox News says the GOP health care repeal is dead
Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans are in a world of hurt now that their plan to repeal Obamacare has failed disastrously. Again. Trump is raging on Twitter, Vice President Mike Pence is in hiding, senior counselor Kellyanne Conway is insulting her fellow Republicans, calling them “Loch Ness monsters of the swamp.” And now they’ve […]

McDANIEL: So we’re not done. We’re going to keep fighting for the American people.
KILMEADE: Well, you’re probably done with health care for a while though.
Fox is the reliably loyal pro-Trump propaganda outlet that is always happy to spin or just outright lie for the GOP. And “Fox & Friends” is Trump’s favorite show, always telling him what he wants to hear whether or not it’s actually true.

And that means it is time — it is long past time — for Republicans to stop waging a war on the health care of millions of Americans. It’s unpopular, it’s bad for the country, and the harder they try to repeal Obamacare, they more they will fail.
And even Fox knows it.
