‘ROBOTIC PODS!’ Limbaugh BLASTS Post-Debate Media’s ‘LOCKSTEP’ Response
RUSH: Good grief, it’s worse than I thought. We are surrounded, totally utterly surrounded by glittering jewels of colossal ignorance and absurdity. It’s breathtaking to behold all of this. No, no, no. I’m not talking about Trump. I’m talking about the lockstep that everybody in the media is in. It is stunning! They all might as well be robotic pods being programmed by somebody.
Every damn one of them has the same reaction to virtually anything in that debate last night that anybody’s reacting to. It doesn’t matter where you go. You could go to Fox. You could go to CNN. You could go to PMSNBC. You could go to anywhere and the reaction is identical.
Is there not one human being in journalism today that has an independent thought about anything? Is there not a one of them paying attention to what’s actually happening in this country and in this campaign? Is there not a one of them that understands why Donald Trump is the nominee? Is there not one of them that understands why he hasn’t lost the election yet? Is there not one of them, is there not a single person who has been paying attention since last June when Trump entered the race?
Is there not a single person in the Drive-By Media anywhere that hasn’t figured out who Trump is, what he does, and why he does it? Is there not a single person yet who has figured out that the way they measure the performance of politicians doesn’t apply to Donald Trump? We only have over a year’s worth of evidence. Every one of them! I don’t care who you talk to, it doesn’t matter who you read, it doesn’t matter who you listen to, Trump lost the debate last night.
Wait a minute. I thought Trump lost the debate weeks ago. I thought Trump lost the debate in the first debate. I thought Trump lost the debate when he came down the escalator at Trump Tower announcing his candidacy. From the get-go, this guy has never had a chance. Every time he’s opened his mouth, they, almost in unison, have said, “That’s it, he’s finished, it’s embarrassing, it’s over.” They’re acting like last night Trump was winning. In order for them to have any credibility with what they’re saying about Trump’s debate performance last night, you have to believe that they thought Trump was on the way to winning last night, but last night he snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with one ill-timed comment that they’re not even getting right.
