7:01 am
is this the clue that finally helps crack the case? all that plus o.j.'s life if he's paroled. the shocking moment a woman is dragged along a subway platform. and ready for more? what duchess kate said that has royal watchers going gaga, today, tuesday, july 18, 2017. >> from nbc news, this is "today," with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today." nice to have you along with us on a tuesday morning. we have willie in for matt again. >> let's get to the breaking news on capitol hill overnight. for seven years, republican lawmakers have vowed to overturn obamacare. but this morning, their latest plan has come to a screeching halt. >> that's because two more republican senators announced they would vote no on their own party's proposal. that left party leaders short of the required votes to move forward.
7:02 am
we have complete coverage on this breaking development. we'll start with nbc white house correspondent kristen welker. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. this is a devastating blow to one of the president's top agenda items and biggest campaign promises to repeal and replace obamacare. the white house was caught by surprise after two more republicans defected overnight, effective killing the bill. the president tweeting this morning, we were let down by all of the democrats and a few republicans, most republicans were loyal, terrific and worked really hard. we will return. the new strategy now, repeal and replace much later. overnight, the republican plan to replace obamacare officially falling short, with two more gop senators unexpectedly pulling their support. senator jerry moran of kansas, and senator mike lee of utah, both tweeting their opposition at 8:30 last night on twitter, about the same time president
7:03 am
trump was meeting with several key republican lawmakers at the white house, and just hours after the president appeared confident the legislation would pass. >> so, we're going to get that done, and i think we're going to surprise a lot of people. but we're getting it together. and it's -- it's going to happen. >> reporter: president trump tweeting out a new strategy late last night. republicans should just repeal failing obamacare on a new health care plan that will start from a clean slate. dems will join in. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell saying that vote to repeal much of obamacare could come in days. with a two-year grace period to allow for a table transition. but senator mcconnell stressing even that will be a tough path. the defeat coming hours after snars delayed a preliminary vote on the bill because they were missing a key vote, senator john mccain who is recovering in arizona after surgery to remove a blood clot. >> we miss him. he's a crusty voice in washington.
7:04 am
plus, we need his vote. >> reporter: senator mccain weighing in overnight. we must not repeat the original mistakes that led to obamacare's failure. the congress must receive input from members of both parties. but the republicans are facing a fierce opposition. >> your job is on the line. >> reporter: many made their voices heard on capitol hill monday. leader mcconnell didn't give an exact date for the vote to repeal obamacare. but indicated an announcement will be coming soon. republicans privately acknowledge even securing the votes for their fallback plan will be difficult. savannah? willie? >> kristen stand by there. i want to keep this conversation going but bring in kasie hunt to course capitol hill for us. let's pick up right where kristen left off. are there the votes for the repeal now replace later idea? and is there any reason to think this gets easier with time? >> i'm not sure that there's a reason to think it does get
7:05 am
easier with time. the reality, they set out the repeal and replace plan originally because leadership knew they didn't have support to just do a straight repeal. this is really the difference being between a party opposing a president, barack obama, in congress, and having to be the party that governs. you actually have some senators out at home at town hall meetings acknowledge that up front. say, hey, it's a lot harder to govern than we thought. and frankly, the repeal only push came out of a party that was trying to oppose instead of one that was trying to write laws. so i think this is still a very tricky political calculation. trying to only repeal it. >> kristen, repeal and replace obviously was a core promise of the trump campaign over the course of about two years now. we've been hearing it, also from republicans in the house and the senate. now yesterday, as you point out in the tweet that the president changing to well let's at least repeal this thing and work with democrats to replace it later. how shaken was the white house
7:06 am
with this development last night? >> they are shaken. they know this is a risky strategy. the plan is to force democrats back to the table to negotiate over a new health care plan by repealing it. there's no indication democrats will play ball with them. chuck schumer rushing republicans to start to approve obamacare. in a statement he said overnight, rather than repeating the same failed process yet again, republicans should start with scratch and work with democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, and improved our health care system. this underscores the political risk for republicans if they can't get democrats on board with their new plan. the gop could really pay for this by losing seats, willie. >> let me take that hot potato and kick it back to kasie.
7:07 am
what do you hear on the hill? would democrats do something with republicans in the name of replacing obamacare? >> i think that if the frame on this is, we've repealed president obama's health care while replacing it with something better, i don't know democrat it's are going to go with that. the politics have gotten so calcified. both sides are way down in the trenches. you have trumpcare on one happened, obamacare on the other. if republicans fail to push forward a plan, you may see a situation where democrats work with them to try to make basically a smaller fix to those individual obamacare markets that we've talked so much about. the ones where many states only have one plan, for example. i think we are still a ways away from that. if you still see president trump looking for a victory. i do not think there's any way democrats will try to help him out on that. >> our team on capitol hill on this latest development.

9:31 am
i'm kidding. the fact is, it is normal to have a favorite child. you have different interests. you have more than one child. and one is really doing great with you and you're clicking and the other one is not. you're going to favor the one that you're getting along with better in that moment. but we want to be mindful of how we favor our children, right? a little bit of favoritism as it flows. but if you favor one as a parent all the time, it is going to cause some disruption in your other kids. >> it sure did. >> it sure did. >> we do joke about it with my brothers all the time. it has become a running joke at this point. >> right. >> this question for our married viewers. is it normal to hate your spouse? >> strongly dislike your spouse, yes. >> is it normal? >> yes. you're bringing two people with distinct personalities into a relationship. and relationships ebb and flow. what if you need your spouse to

9:33 am
how to do it on their own. we know that's what's happening. you have to sit on your hands a little bit, tolerate your own anxiety. talk to your partner and your friends. and let your kids try to do it. if you swoop in, you will really impact your kids' self-esteem. >> i can see that. moving to social media. is it normal for an adult to get caught up in the social media world? >> you discussed this before? >> i think it is. going to it mindlessly. >> we're all relationship driven. and we compare ourselves to others all the time. we like our kids and teenagers are going to compare ourselves in social media. it's a black hole. it's normal. but model what you think should be appropriate screen usage. you can only do better that way. >> i just interviewed that we
