Rush and Donald Have a Conversation

Trump is a much more likable person with a friendly audience and time to speak.

President Donald Trump joined Rush Limbaugh for two hours Friday in what Rush called “the largest radio rally in history.” Having received the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the State of the Union Address in February, Rush was certainly a more friendly audience than most media talkingheads. Low bar, we know.

The crazy thing is, it made Donald Trump extremely likable. To listen to him have a conversation about a great many issues over the course of two hours without being hectored, bullied, or asked biased gotcha questions gave those tuning in the sense that Trump is actually a pretty decent guy.

Who knew, right?

Well, the president has proved himself likable to anyone who loves this country instead of disdainfully viewing it as a racist backwater. He’s likable to anyone who wants lower taxes, fewer regulations, economic recovery, sane immigration policy, judges and justices who uphold their oaths to the Constitution, to defend the Second Amendment, and election integrity. He’s likable to people who want the world’s terrorists and state bad actors to know the U.S. means business. Or, as Trump put it, “They’ve been put on notice: If you f—k around with us, you do something bad to us, we are going to do things to you that have never been done before, and they understand that.”

We suppose the Iranian mullahs and anyone from the Obama Clinton Kerry School of Diplomacy may object to the “likable, decent guy” sentiment.

Trump and Limbaugh discussed all of the above topics and more. That’s important because, particularly on the subjects of immigration and the Second Amendment, there wasn’t a single question about either topic at either the presidential or vice presidential debates. And there probably won’t be in the future. The mainstream media is utterly failing to provide a simple service to the American people: Exploring what the two major presidential candidates think about the issues. They’re too busy covering for Joe Biden.

Speaking of Biden, his declining mental state should worry every American, especially those who suspect Kamala Harris is the real candidate. And, as Rush pointed out, even a COVID-recovering Donald Trump is a formidable force. “We’ve now been chatting with the president for an hour and 42 minutes, ladies and gentlemen,” he said. “We have not had a commercial break. I would thus have to say the president’s status with COVID-19 is pretty solid. The second thing that I would say is that not once during the hour and 42 minutes has the president been stumped, has he not known what he wanted to say.”

In any case, the overriding point is that anyone who’s exposed to Trump without the Leftmedia filter is left with a much different — and far better — impression of the man.
