RUSH: You know, back on January 16th, 2009, when I said — in response to the Wall Street Journal asking me for 400 words on my hopes and dreams for the Obama Regime — “I don’t need 400; I can do it in four: ‘I hope he fails,'” there was a cacophony of outrage that went on for all eight years. And it’s still, folks, it is still reverberating. Washington Post: “Sotomayor: Country Can’t Afford for President to Fail, But People Must Continue to Be Heard.”
Supreme Court Justicette Sonia Sotomayor, “the wise Latina,” says the country cannot afford for the president to fail. Why is it even on her mind? Me. That’s why it’s on her mind.
RUSH: Thomas Friedman. “However, I’m not going to spend every day, Mr. Trump, hoping you fail. Too much is at stake.” So Sonia Sotomayor and Thomas “Loopy” Friedman all addressing the concept of Trump failure. Who put this on the table?
It was I, your beloved host almost eight years ago. Bill Press (a failed talk show host and a failed Democrat National Committee honcho) was on TV somewhere (a failed TV network), and he said he hopes Trump does fail. And this is the problem with Bill: He’s never been original. But he’s out there saying he hopes Trump fails.
