How do you get a 26 year old stepson to grow up when his father coddles him?

Here's the deal. Stepson spent time incarcerated, not the first time. Then he had "no place to go, no job, etc...so he had to come live here for a time. Daddy gave him a job, and he was paid and stayed here rent free for 6 months. He did not save any money. Moved in with g/f but. cannot function on his own even if he doesn't live here. Significant other makes ONE lunch pail for the two of them (independent business) and gets angry when I confront him about making the baby lunch. I guess part of the problem is his father. It looks like a pattern with this boy; cannot be on his own, if he is he either ends up in jail or back here. I guess my problem is I cannot understand why it is his father will not make him responsible for anything. Mollycoddles him to the max. The kid can do no wrong.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this? Sure would appreciate some wisdom.
