RUSH: We've already seen what one member of the Democrat base living on a steady diet of political hate was willing to do. If Democrats keep on doing what they're doing — stoking flames of anger like this — they'll produce more shooters like him.
RUSH: They can't separate themselves from Watergate. "Oh, my God, are we getting close to where the Republicans drive up and tell Trump?" And this guy from The Atlantic says, "No, we're not there yet. It's really, really hard to get rid of a president, it's really hard."
RUSH: So Trump has knocked it out of park as far as I'm concerned. He's put the Cubans back where they belong, but left intact the ability to buy Cuban cigars legally and bring them back into the country.
RUSH: Gergen just said, "You just don't do this. You don't attack the investigator. It's been a long-standing practice. You don't attack publicly the investigator. It only stirs 'em up." Now, he was there when James Carville, Begala, Lanny Davis, and everybody did it. I mean, it was a major operation, these people destroyed Ken Starr.
RUSH: Wouldn't that be — what, ironic — that the green crowd got in there and demanded a retrofit of this building to enforce sustainable green energy requirements, and the requirements ended up turning the whole building into a tinderbox?
RUSH: Now, you might say, "Well, I mean, Rush, the swamp's the swamp. There's no other way to get a bill passed. The president's not a dictator." I understand that. But Trump has more tools at his disposal than he is using. The power vested in the president by the Constitution in the executive branch is awesome.
RUSH: I ran this theory by a sitting member of the Republican House of Representatives, and he thought, "Rush, I haven't heard that. I haven't heard a word of that." And he started looking into it, and he wrote me back. He said, "I must ask your forgiveness."
RUSH: We can play the what-if game. What if he hadn't fired Comey, would there be an independent counsel? But I do think things would have been different. Because you can't gain anything with Democrats by being nice to 'em. You only weaken yourself to them.
RUSH: I love it when they make fools of themselves. And make no mistake, that is happening. They do not represent the majority of voters in this country by a mile. They are in the minority, these people, and I think it’s something that they may not be consciously aware of, but they know it, and that bothers them too.
RUSH: The evidence is clear that Comey multiple times cleared Trump publicly of any obstruction.
RUSH: Donald Trump is bigger than Steve Jobs. Donald Trump is the biggest star in the world today. And do not doubt me. It grates. It grates on everyone. I don't know how many Washington political class members get all concerned about the stardom, but the popularity and the name recognition, everything they seek, the power, the adulation from supporters, Donald Trump has it, and they don't.
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. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
