RUSH: You know this tax bill? It actually may happen. I’m beginning to get a sense, I’m beginning to get a feeling that this thing is actually going to happen before Christmas. Trump is on his way to Missouri sometime this week to begin the process of pitching it. Trump is admitting that he’s open to some changes perhaps in the way they do the numbers on the pass-through with regard to the reduction in tax rate there. Don’t really know details yet.
But the point is there is a lot of flexibility that people are engaging in here. And now all the catcalls are coming that Trump doesn’t care about any of this. All Trump cares about is a vote in the Senate. He doesn’t care about Roy Moore. He doesn’t care about anything good or decent. He just wants a vote in the Senate. That’s a swipe at Trump for endorsing Roy Moore.
RUSH: By the way, Trump’s tweet today is laugh out loud, uproariously funny. Have you seen it?
“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”
You know, he just doesn’t stop hitting these people. You know, they’re trying to claim he doesn’t have the right to appoint Mulvaney to the CFPB. And he does. He has total constitutional authority to appoint whoever he wants to the CFPB. The CFPB’s a bogus, BS bunch of things anyway. It ought to be disbanded.
You know, Fauxcahontas created this, and it’s ostensibly to guard against the rip-off tactics of banks and lending institutions and financial institutions who, like every other American corporation, either want to kill their customers or cause their customers to go broke or cause their customers to lose their homes or cause their customers to destroy the planet.
And so Fauxcahontas comes up with this thing. And of course the Congress rushes to support it and enact it because it happened at a time when there was some financial malfeasance somewhere, and it’s made to look like it was everywhere and omnipresent. But Trump has the total authority, constitutional and otherwise, as the head honcho of the executive branch to put in charge of it whoever he wants.
And of course the Chihuahuas are nipping at the ankles again trying to say he shouldn’t and couldn’t, but he can.
