RUSH: Ever since he won the election, Democrats have been trying to turn that hotel into a political liability for Trump.
RUSH: Well, now, if this doesn't just take the cake. I was just watching Fox, the Fox News Channel. They had an interview with Steny Hoyer.
RUSH: For those wondering who I'm gonna blame, they'll have to wait 'til Monday. I might hide a little blurb on my website to give some indication.

RUSH: Trump is doing exactly what he said he was gonna do, as often as he can. He stormed into town and he's trying to take control and fix the functioning dysfunction of much of Washington, as much as he can. He's hated and reviled for doing it. It's not supposed to be possible.

RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time.
