LIMBAUGH: Trump Has Got To STOP Being A ‘Consumer Of News’
RUSH: I said earlier that I really think Trump needs to shuffle some advisers and get some people around him.
He needs to stop watching the news, number one. Trust me on this. That’s why I don’t watch it anymore. I don’t. It’s an alternative reality anyway. It’s not what’s real. The steel industry is thriving; the mining industry is thriving. There’s too much to do! Tax reform, repealing Obamacare. He’s the guy that has to drive those things. It’s not gonna be driven in Congress. The legislation is not gonna come from K Street. He has to do it. The more he’s distracted by this stuff — which is one of its intentions. The media’s purpose is to destroy him.
The Democrats want to distract him so the agenda can’t go forward. If Trump succeeds with his agenda, they’re not gonna win anything in ’18 or ’20. So Trump needs to stop getting bogged down. I don’t mind him tweeting because he’s the only guy reacting, but don’t watch and absorb all this stuff and have it govern what you think of the day every day. This stuff is poison. It’s, by definition, negative. It’s, by definition, destructive. It’s aimed at harming him. And all he’s watching is the evidence and the progress and the success every day that that movement to destroy him is having.
He’s gotta stop watching it. He’s gotta stop being a consumer of news like he was when he was a civilian. He’s gotta get some people to keep him focused in there and understand and can tell him what’s going on. He should not be surprised this investigation isn’t going away. But he is, apparently. He shouldn’t be surprised that firing Comey does not satisfy the Democrats. He ought to have some people around him that should be able to tell him, “If you’re firing Comey ’cause you think you’re gonna quiet things down, that’s not gonna happen, Sir.”
There’s a lot of progress in the Trump agenda that’s happened, but nobody’s hearing about it ’cause of this stuff. And I think on the agenda side, Trump is having major successes and has the opportunity for much, much more. And if he really wants to nail these people, if he really wants to stick it to ’em, do it there. Focus on get thing these tax cuts through there. Congress says, “Why, we can’t go to taxes! We’re distracted with the Russian investigation.”
Ah, you’re not distracted with the Russian investigation. You want to be distracted by it! Force it on ’em. You’re the guy that’s gonna drain the swamp. Go in there and drain it. Tell ’em what’s gonna be what-for. You don’t have to tell them why you fired Comey. Nobody deserves an explanation of the timing or anything else. He can fire whoever he wants! It’s the executive branch! He doesn’t owe anybody an explanation, and he doesn’t have to go defensive with it.
