“They hate Trump, but they hate you more. Trump’s gonna come and go — he’s term-limited, he can’t serve more than two terms — but you can continue to vote for people like Trump,” Rush Limbaugh said as he dropped the hammer on CNN and Don Lemon.
“I and many others, have opined over the years that it’s not really Trump that the Washington establishment and the Never Trumpers hate.”
“It’s you — you who voted for him, you who continue to support him, you who cannot be persuaded to abandon him. It is you they really hate. It is you they really despise. It is you motivating them and inspiring them to try to overturn your election in 2016 because they disapprove of the result because you made it happen. If anybody believes that the Washington government, the Washington establishment, the Democrat Party is looking out for the little guy,” he said.
“How many of you believe that it’s the Republicans that are the mean-spirited, extremist, rich white guys that don’t care anything about people; it’s the Democrats who have all the compassion, it’s the Democrats who have all the understanding, Democrats looking out for the minorities, Democrats looking out for the downtrodden, Democrats looking out for the homeless and the hungry and the thirsty, Democrats looking out for the disadvantaged, Democrats looking out for all of those who have grievances?
You could not be more wrong. I have a little 45-second sound bite here. This is what this impeachment is all about. It’s what Trump-Russia collusion and that effort was all about. It’s what the Kavanaugh hearings were all about. They hate Trump, but they hate you more. Trump’s gonna come and go — he’s term limited, he can’t serve more than two terms — but you can continue to vote for people like Trump.
You are despised. Last night CNN Tonight with Don Lemon had a discussion about secretary of state Mike Pompeo challenging an NPR reporter to find Ukraine on a map. Pompeo was lied to by the NPR reporter. He was set up twice. She promised him she was not gonna ask him about Ukraine, only Iran, and then she didn’t ask anything about Iran, and then she promised him that any conversation after the interview would be off the record. She lied about both.
Pompeo called her out, demanded that she find Ukraine on a map, and she couldn’t. The NPR reporter pointed to Bangladesh when Pompeo asked her. “You’re asking me all about Ukraine; you don’t even know where it is. Find it for me on the map.” She thought it was where Bangladesh is. So Pompeo kicked her off his airplane because she lied to him twice and set him up in this interview and the interview conversation afterwards.
This is what they’re talking about on CNN last night.
So we have Don Lemon, the host, we have a New York Times contributor named Wajahat Ali, and a Republican strategist named Rick Wilson who just hates Trump. He has hated Trump from 2016 on. Mr. Snerdley, I’m having a tough time remembering who he worked for. Who did Rick…? His name is Rick Wilson. Who did he work for? It was… (interruption) Nah, Chris Christie.
I’m thinking somebody like McCain. Was it McCain that was…? All these guys, they run together. I can’t remember. I should have looked it up. Anyway, he is a Republican strategist. Now I’m gonna have to take a break here and get to despite after the break, but wait ’til you hear it. I mean, you talk…? It’s ridiculing you. It’s making fun of you. It’s a window into how they look at you, folks.”
Don Lemon and CNN mock Americans who support President Trump. Disgusting. pic.twitter.com/WMCy6arLJc— ACT for America (@ACTforAmerica) January 28, 2020
