Stephen Colbert Talks About Why Trump Cares About Us Not Calling Trumpcare Trumpcare

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Show, where Stephen Colbert recaps the GOP’s Obamacare replacement plan and the news that, in a surprisingly un-Trumplike move, Trump said he doesn’t want the plan to be called Trumpcare. “He just doesn’t want you to call it Trumpcare, and when it comes to whether you should call it Trumpcare, that is one thing about which Trump care,” Colbert says. He also notes that if the plan falls through, Trump’s plan is to just let Obamacare fail so he can place all the blame on Democrats. “Okay, hold on there, chief. You’re in charge now. If you let healthcare collapse, I don’t think we’ll blame the Democrats. We will blame you,” Colbert says. “That’s like a firefighter letting the house burn down to make the space heater look bad.”
