Rush Limbaugh: Sessions-Russia Story Is About Obama, Democrats ‘Attempting to Sabotage the Trump Presidency’ (Audio)
RUSH SPEAKS THE OBVIOUS TRUTH ABOUT THE DEMOCRAT WITCH HUNT …
Rush Limbaugh stated on his show yesterday that this story is not about Jeff Sessions. This story is not about illegal talks between Trump and his campaign people and the Russians. This story is about Barack Obama and the Democrat Party attempting to sabotage the Trump presidency. Rush went on to say that the LEFT’s attacks like this of Trump is all this failed party has left. After President Trump’s amazing Address to Congress speech, the LEFT had no alternative but to double down on the sabotage.
This story is not about Jeff Sessions. This story is not about illegal talks between Trump and his campaign people and the Russians. This story is about Barack Obama and the Democrat Party attempting to sabotage the Trump presidency and do everything they can to either render it meaningless and ineffective or to get him impeached or force him to resign. That’s what the story is. And that is what has to be attacked, not defended.
We have no reason to be on defense all the time. We won the election. These people are barely hanging on. This is all they’ve got. And there’s no evidence, despite a year and a half of allegations of illegal contact between Trump, his campaign, and the Russians. There is no evidence.
How are they going after Sessions? Sessions lied. Sessions lied to Franken. Now Trump has no choice but then to get rid of Sessions. This is what they’re trying to do. Now, do not misunderstand me. I’m not saying Sessions doesn’t deserve to be defended and I’m not saying this shouldn’t be explained, because I’m gonna do that today. I’m talking about tactics and strategy, the immediate knee-jerk reaction when these allegations come is to accept their premise, and once we do that, we’re cooked.
No matter how much brilliance we come up with, no matter how much evidence to refute what they’re saying, if we accept the premise, we’re cooked. We have got to redefine what this is really all about. It is all about Barack Obama and the Democrat Party attempting to unseat President Trump. It’s all about sabotage and a scandal from the highest levels of the Democrat Party. That’s what is happening here. And that’s what people need to be told.
All of this needs to be explained to casual observers, American citizens, as to what is really going on. You know, I can play the game of defending Sessions. I’ve got all the Claire McCaskill tweets that show she met with the Russian ambassador and bragged about it even though she’s saying that Sessions should quit for having to do it. Sessions in his testimony during his confirmation hearings, this was not even about anything official. It was about that phony, fake dossier that the media and BuzzFeed had published.
Sessions was being asked questions about a dossier that was packed full of lies that nobody even maintained was true except the media. As I say, I’m gonna get to all of this in due course, but I actually think, folks, that the focus here needs to be on Obama and the Democrats and their motives. And I’ll tell you what’s driving this is Trump’s speech. Trump’s speech on Tuesday night has scared the devil out of these people.
They thought Trump was gonna continue to be what they think is a bumbling fool, you know, fortunately, luckily running into good things and eventually he was gonna start bumping into bad things, and he’s gonna screw everything up. He didn’t know politics. He didn’t know the establishment. It was gonna be easy to do end runs around him, and that speech came, and in their minds, that’s the greatest speech they’ve ever heard, and it scared the hell out of ’em.
Now, they were gonna do what they’re doing today anyway, but their intensity has been ratcheted up. I mean, I could point out all of the hypocrisy I want. Remember when special prosecutor was appointed for Loretta Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton just before the election? No, you don’t remember that because it didn’t happen. What was at all about? The Clintons and their Crime Family Foundation were under FBI investigation. They might still be, for all we know. But we don’t hear any clamoring to get to the bottom of that.
It looks like the Democrats were conspiring to cover up influence peddling and God knows what else. The Clintons were out selling access to the White House and her future presidency. Last time I checked, all of this is what led to the Republicans being elected. The Democrat Party has soiled itself in front of the American people, and they don’t want any more of them. That’s why Trump won.
CBS Poll: 76% of Viewers Nationwide Approved of President Trump’s Address to to Congress Speech (VIDEO)
THE MSM AND DEMOCRATS ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE AS THE JOINT OPPOSITION PARTIES TO TRUMP AND HIS MESSAGE ARE ALSO IN OPPOSITION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
First a CNN poll and now a CBS one, Americans nationwide who viewed President Donald Trump’s joint Address to Congress overwhelmingly approved of his speech. An amazing 76% of viewers stated they approved of his speech, while only 24% disapproved. While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” more importantly, about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”. No one expected Democrats to side with President Trump, as they have opposed all of his ideas, even the one’s they would normally agree with, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency. Democrats and the MSM find themselves on the wrong side of the American people as Trump called for unity and for Republicans and Democrats to work together to provide real healthcare reform for the American people.
Viewers nationwide strongly approved of President Trump’s speech Tuesday night, with many Democrats joining Republicans in calling it “presidential” and positive in tone. Republicans and Independents found it “unifying,” though Democrats were slower to come around on that measure.
The President gained support for his policy plans among viewers: Interviewed before and after the address, they came away from it more positive on his ideas for the economy, immigration, terrorism, crime and Obamacare.
As is often the case in addresses to Congress, those who watched were more likely to be from the president’s party – in this case, Republicans. And they described a president they felt was keeping campaign promises and offering an “inspiring” message.
While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”; neither label drew a majority, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency.
And viewers of all stripes described the speech as at least somewhat positive in tone.
Overall, most watchers approved of the speech. Republicans did tune in to watch it in much greater numbers than Democrats (as a president’s party typically does) which bolstered those approval numbers. Forty percent of Democrats at least somewhat approved; 18 percent strongly approved.
Fox News Chris Wallace Says, “I Feel Like Tonight Donald Trump Became the President of the United States” (VIDEO) (Update: MSM Praises Trump Speech)
FOX NEWS CHRIS WALLACE PRAISES PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S SPEECH IN ADDRESS TO CONGRESS …
Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, Chris Wallace, the host of FOX News Sunday, had nothing but praise as he analyzed the speech. Wallace, who is no Trump cheerleader at Fox said, “it was by far the best speech that Donald Trump ever gave.” He further went on to say that “it was one of the best speeches in that setting that he ever heard any president give.”
Wallace then said, “I want to say this right, but I feel like tonight, Donald Trump became the president of the United States.” You could see the head of Dana Pirino, former GWB press secretary and Fox News host, in the background nodding with approval. What Wallace said was no disrespect to President Trump. Wallace went on to follow up and say, “Yes, of course he got it 35 or 38 or 40 days ago when he was sworn in, but so many Democrats didn’t recognize him. I think tonight whether you agree or disagree with him, he became the president of the United States and everyone is going to have to accept that fact.”
UPDATE I: From The Washington Examiner, Media applaud Trump’s first joint session speech.
Journalists applauded President Trump’s first joint session address on Tuesday, calling it presidential and predicting that it will be popular beyond his core base of supporters.
“This will be, I think, a very well-received speech for Donald Trump,” said liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow after the speech. She said part of the reason was “because of expectations” for Trump are lower, since he is not a typical politician.
In his speech, Trump maintained his campaign message to push for American interests on international trade and foreign policy, while calling on unity between Republicans and Democrats.
Chris Matthews said that Trump’s message of “economic nationalism” was likely to resonate. “I think left, right and center, people have a sense of righteous indignation,” he said. “It’s probably the reason [Trump] was elected in [swing states] Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio.”
“This is Trump at his most presidential — his most effective speech yet,” said ABC White House correspondent Jonathan Karl on Twitter.
Los Angeles Times White House Correspondent Mike Memoli said on Twitter that Trump’s speech was “playing out well” for Trump.
President Donald Trump at CPAC 2017 … “I want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. It’s fake, phony, fake.” (VIDEO)
TRUMP ATTACKS MSM … ‘THEY’LL SAY HE NEVER GOT A STANDING OVATION”…
President Donald Trump spoke today at CPAC 2017 much to the thrill and enjoyment of those in attendance. President Trump began his speech by calling out the MSM and their fake news by asking the people in the audience to sit down as the media will say that Trump never got a standing ovation from CPAC. Trump added that they will forget to mention that those in attendance never sat down during his speech. ZING!!!
Trump exposed the MSM and their fake news for not even being able to properly report the story where he said that fake news was the enemy of the people. The president stated, he is not against the media, he is against fake new.
I am only against the fake news media or press. I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be put out there. There are some great reporters out there. You have no idea how bad it is. You have a lot of them…the Clinton News Network is one.
Trump said networks like CNN, ABC and CBS use fake polls to discourage voters from voting and to promote their own agenda.
Via The Daily Caller, President Trump blisters the MSM and its fake news.
“Sit down, everybody,” Trump said as he took the stage. “You know the dishonest media, they’ll say, ‘He didn’t get a standing ovation.’ They are the worst.”
“You know my first major speech was at CPAC, probably five or six years ago. My first political speech. I wanted to come last year but I thought at that time I was too controversial.”
“The media didn’t think we would win. The pundits didn’t think we would win. The consultants that suck up all that money, oh they suck it up there so good, but the consultants didn’t think we would win. But they all underestimated the power of the people — you. And the people proved them totally wrong.”
“Never underestimate the people,” he continued. “Never. I don’t think it will ever happen again.”
“I want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. It’s fake, phony, fake. A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are. Because they have no sources. They just make it up when there are none. They make up sources. They’re very dishonest people. They did not explain that I called the fake news the enemy of the people. They dropped off the word fake. That’s the way they are. I’m not against the media. I’m not against the press. I don’t mind bad stories, if I deserve them. I love good stories. I don’t get too many of them. I am only against the fake news media or press. I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be put out there. There are some great reporters out there. You have no idea how bad it is. You have a lot of them…the Clinton News Network is one.”
Trump said networks like CNN, ABC and CBS use fake polls to discourage voters from voting and to promote their own agenda.
“It creates a whole false deal, folks,” he said. “And we have to fight it. They get upset when we expose their false stories. They say we can’t criticize their coverage because of the First Amendment. Nobody loves it [the First Amendment] better than me.”
“As you saw, throughout the entire campaign, and even now, the fake news doesn’t tell the truth. So, just in finishing, I say it doesn’t represent the people. It never will represent the people. We have to go out and speak our minds and we have to be honest.”
