RUSH: After this new Democrat Party slogan was revealed social media went wild mocking it. The most popular memes noted the similarity to a slogan almost everybody knows: “Better ingredients, Better Pizza — Papa John’s.” Yup, the Democrat slogan does sound like a rip-off.
RUSH: You were elected to build a wall and repeal Obamacare and reform taxes. Cut them! A number of other things. Not elected to defend Trump? Really?
RUSH: This is such a great question. You are so right on the money. Especially the old Soviet Union. The Democrat Party felt a special kinship.
RUSH: He has the bully pulpit, and he could use it to — not shame members of Congress. That would happen as a by-product with the information that you wish he would impart. But just go out and sell it. Just go out and tell everybody how wonderful it is, how great it is, how it's necessary for the nation.
RUSH: You're not gonna find any more utopian-like liberal Mecca than New York City.
RUSH: What this continues to be is a major, major insult and dose of high contempt for the people that elected Trump. That's exactly what this is. It is a slap in the face that has not stopped. "Trump could not have won this! People that supported him are minor, they're dupes, they're idiots. There are not very many of them." Kushner is exactly right. It ridicules the people that voted for him, and it claims they're not serious and they were tricked and they were befuddled and they were manipulated and all this.
RUSH: I think this is what Trump was talking about when he sends out that tweet wondering why Republicans and his "beleaguered" attorney general are not investigating all of this.
RUSH: For our caller, the reason he got on board the Trump train at the outset? Immigration. On that basis you would have to say Trump is succeeding with flying colors. But you heard him say that if he gets rid of Sessions, that's not gonna sit well out there with the Trumpists because Sessions was one of the early guys, and it's gonna make them question Trump's loyalty in all this.
RUSH: I have Trump’s tweets for the last two days, and let’s review these things, and I’ll see if I can pick out the ones that our caller was talking about.
RUSH: The Republicans run the show. It's time for the Republicans to start acting like it. Politics is what it is. The Republicans don't appear to want to play the game. I know the old saw: They didn't think they were gonna win, therefore they weren't prepared. So what? They did win. It ought to be euphoric. It ought to be exciting. Apparently it isn't.
RUSH: Fifteen hours a week. Is it really too much to ask?
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I got a cryptic email this morning from a friend who said that a friend of his, who I know (all these people must remain nameless) has been charged with some serious vetting of people. The administration, the Trump administration is vetting people as they would if they were considering somebody for cabinet secretary or similar position in the bureaucracy.
RUSH: If you have a daughter, he's the guy you would want your daughter to marry. He's the kind of guy you'd like to have as your son. He's just… I don't want to ruin his image by saying "clean cut" but the guy is just cultured and mannered. He had one of the greatest acceptance speeches yesterday.
RUSH: They have a body camera on everybody, because they get up every day thinking that day is gonna be the day that some bombshell is discovered, that they're gonna be able to get rid of Trump by sundown that day, and this is what is motivating them.
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.
