President Trump, Donald Trump, Washington Examiner discussed on Rush Limbaugh


You're listening to Russia's week in review like yesterday. I was well, I don't complain and I don't wine, but I guess some could have been terported that way. I was lamenting that going to watch these democrat debates this week. I really really want it. But now I've had my mind change because the drive by media today is overwhelmed story after story after story supposedly big wig, Democrats, worried, as they can be over these debates coming up because they fear that it's going to end up being a circular firing squad that all these democratic candidates are going to do nothing but attack each other rather than Donald Trump. What eight crock? Of course that's what's going to be. It's always that when you have a crowded field in a presidential primary doesn't matter what party. It doesn't matter how many hundreds of years you go back, the immediate opponents are the people you have to take out. There's nothing new about this. I get to thinking about media cycles and how repetitive they are. From generation to generation not just year to year and how much of it is really cut copy. And paste, there's nothing new. There's nothing revolutionary about a large field of candidates going after each other. But if you turn to the drive by media today, you would think it's a I and at the democrat party is in a panic about it doesn't know how to deal with now. That may be true. But the idea that this is something that hasn't happened before is just complete BS, and we'll get to that in due course. But I want to kick off by the white, greetings, great to have you here. Eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two. If you wanna be on the Rush Limbaugh program. It was in the third hour yesterday. During the segment of the program taking phone calls, a very disturbed an irate caller named Vicky. Had been on hold for nearly the entire program. When I connected with her. She said, I'm about to melt down. I've been waiting all day for you to mention this, and you haven't mentioned that yet and I don't know what to do. She was talking about Trump cancelling the ice raids to deport all of the illegal immigrants that could be found I spoke with her about it. I talked her off the ledge I calmed her down. I gave her theory. And I had I told her that you're right. I didn't mean to get into this in the first hour I got sidetracked, though with a. Recounting of the story that reminded me of something I'd seen HBO the night before, and I never got back to this story. So I thank you for calling me. She was very, very alarmed at Trump and caved and it led to a quite spirited discussion that contained two things on my part. One. I expressed a little shock. And a moderate amount of anger over the fact that these rates were even announced. Why announce them now Trump had tweeted about them. I think on the Friday before, but he had not specified, when he just said they were going to happen. Then a leak hit in both the Washington Post the Washington Times of the specific timing for the raids, which required them to be called off. Now there, there was a story that at the end of the program, just after the program is over a story ran at townhall column by Matt Vespas, and it explores the possibility that the acting director of homeland security may have leaked the raids himself, a Trump cabinet official may have leaked the raid information. In order to torpedo the rain, so estimate himself. Look good with the Washington establishment and media. It's not confirmed. It's merely mentioned as a pop the possibility it was the operation that reportedly cost kearse Jin Nielsen her job. She was reluctant to go through with it the raids. So Trump grant got rid of her part of the massive overhaul. The department of homeland security that occurred in April. To put it simply we're going to have a large scale raid on the legals by ice. It's not cruel. It's not immoral. It's the right thing to do. It's the law for crying out loud. You cannot come here illegally, no matter how sad, your sob story is. And now we have a new sheriff in town, Donald Trump. It's time for these people ago, the president tweeted about the plan raids last week, but they repose ponied why. Well, Mr. Vespas says that from sources at homeland security, the acting director, Kevin Macalinsan leaked the plan in order to torpedo, the raid now Trump did mention them, but the Washington Post got their hands on some key information, reportedly, no one, but a select few people knew according to an jer tally of the Washington Examiner. In fact, these five sources that spoke with her. Accused mcelwain end of leaking the plan to the media in anticipation of the blowback that could follow. Meaning this guy didn't want the grief. He didn't want the media grief. He didn't want the Trump treatment, so he leaked this to torpedo it so that he wouldn't get any personal media grief. Here is the story from the Washington Examiner. The pool quote in a move. He said, was to placate Democrats, President Trump announced on Saturday that the nationwide immigration enforcement operation plan to start Sunday was called off to give lawmakers two weeks to work on the planet of more on that and just second because that's the real key here. I just want to cover this possibility. However, all five officials knew about the raid spoke with the Washington Examiner confirmed, mackinaw in the acting directors decision to go. Rogue. And stymie the operation was, what prompted the White House to call it off there. We're going to be raised in ten cities. Major blue Democrats cities, Los Angeles Miami, Houston, not so blow, but look out the Washington Post first reported that on Friday. The, the news is that, that Mr. Macura Macalinsan leaked it so that he could be the martyr in the face of anticipated. Blowback in the future. Third official claimed that and cares more about what liberals and never Trumpers, in congress in the media think of him. Than achieving the express mission of his department. This is not confirmed its source to people unnamed and the reported in the Washington Examiner but it doesn't surprise. I mean, there's so much sabotage has been so much sabotage unreasonable amount. The Trump administration and the fact that the raiders are going to happen, and we all know what happened to Kirsten Nielsen, the guy that replaced, her can remember what happened to her and. He may not want the blowback Email. I don't wanna look bad to the media. I know what to look bad never Trumpers. They wants to curry their favor. So he sabotages Trump. That's the story now the second part of this. When I was talking to the caller yesterday. She was livid that these rates have been called off. We didn't know yesterday about the possibility that the rains had actually been leaked by the director of homeland security in order to stab Otagao them that was unknown. And what I told her was just played about the play the vite grab sound bite number one. This is what I send to the caller in tempt to explain to her. What might be a reason for this giving them two weeks knowing they're not gonna help so that when he doesn't he can say he got no help. They didn't want to join didn't wanna cooperate. They've done nothing but try to stop this. It's positioning them on the completely opposite side of the issue from him. As we head into the democrat debates at twenty twenty campaign. That's my guess is to what this is. I don't wanna think it's anything else. I know where you're coming from. This is Donald Trump. He campaigned on care what these people, he's going to deport these people, he's going to fix the wall. He's gonna fix the border build the wall stuff. He's not gonna care. In fact, he was elected to not listen, these people he was elected to go over their heads. If he had his why he was made president, you wanna see that kind of action. I totally understand that and agree with you after give it time a little bit more. So let's now take what we know is a possibility and plug it into all this the rains were going to happen. They were scheduled to go and then a rogue leak from somewhere. Let's just say and homeland security to the media alerts everybody. And so they have to be canceled. That's one possibility. The other possibility is that we do know that Pelosi called Trump and said, you can't do this. You're scaring the children. You're scaring. The children you can't do this. Trump's an okay? He went onto the Democrats don't want to do this now. So many them two weeks. This is the real key to it now. I told her that what this was was more than likely an attempt. To give the Democrats a chance in the midst of a campaign season. Give the Democrats at chance to come on board and work together to fix the problem that they are calling out all of this time and Democrats refused to acknowledge there's a crisis at the border, and then all of a sudden when they get the pictures of squalid conditions in a couple of places. They all of a sudden start talking about the crisis at the border, demanding that something be done about it. Now they're refusing to participate, and I told the caller that I think one of the we're in the midst of the twenty twenty reelection campaign. This is a opportunity for Trump to demonstrate while the eyes of everybody in America are on this issue. It is an opportunity for Trump to demonstrate to one and all the Democrats don't care. The Democrats are not interested in border security. The Democrats are not interested in solving the crisis in any way shape manner reform he's gonna get in two weeks to come on board Pelosi's out there, so we're going to have a Bill. We're going to have a Bill today, Pelosi's in big trouble audio sound bite number two. We have a montage. This is amazing. I nailed it yesterday. The, the Democrats are holding up the funding of humanitarian aid at the border and the drive by media is blaming them Democrats.

Coming up next
