RUSH: Just to illustrate the disconnect for you. This has nothing to do with whether you’re a conservative mad at Trump or whether you’re a Trumpster mad at the establishment or what have you. Tom Brokaw is the establishment. Tom Brokaw epitomizes it. Tom Brokaw is the face of it! And he’s on with other members of the establishment, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, and they’re all wringing their hands over, “Wha-wha-wha-what’s going on with the Republican campaign? Why is there so much anger?”
And here is what Brokaw said…
BROKAW: President Obama promised change, but he initiated a blue state agenda: Health care overhaul, same-sex marriage, and met intractable GOP opposition. Congressional Republicans were not interested in negotiation or compromise. They had their own problems with the Tea Party.
RUSH: It’s NBC special correspondent Tom Brokaw report on why Americans… There’s actually a special NBC report on why Americans are angry, and that’s it. They couldn’t be further wrong if they tried to be. What do you mean, Republicans were “intractable”? Did not everything Obama wanted happen? We’ve got Obamacare, we’ve got gay marriage, we’ve got everything! Everything that he was serious about trying to accomplish, he’s got. Well, maybe you throw Gitmo out of there, but what “intractable GOP opposition”? There wasn’t any!
This is how far off the beaten path these people in the establishment are. They are so cliched, they’re in a time warp. They’re back 30 years ago, 20 years ago. It’s still the “angry white male,” as far as they’re concerned. “The angry white males are a bunch of Republicans, and they hate ‘progressives,’ and they don’t understand modernization. They don’t understand moving forward. They don’t understand compromise.” That has nothing to do with why Trump’s where he is right now. Or, more properly stated, it has nothing to do with why people don’t trust Tom Brokaw, Matt Lauer, or any other members of the establishment.
It isn’t about that.
