‘A BIG DEAL!’ RUSH: Biggest Mistake Trump Could Make Is To Take Any Advice To ‘Tone It Down’

RUSH: There’s a story here that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention.  I think it’s big, and I think it’s important, and I think it is, for those of you who are deeply invested in Donald Trump, it’s crucially important, and it’s very, very comforting.  It’s the story about how he fired Rick Wiley.  But a lot of people, “What’s the big deal about that, Rush?”

Well, I’ll tell you why it’s a big deal.  It’s a big deal for what it stands for and what it represents.  You know, Rick Wiley is an establishment guy.  Manafort hired him. He was also an establishment guy. He ran Scott Walker’s campaign in Wisconsin.  So he’s got establishment bona fides, and Manafort brought this guy in, and they were going to try to, I don’t know, overthrow, they were gonna try to take control of campaign from Trump’s team that he’s had throughout the primaries, led by Lewandowski and whoever else is in that mix.

Now, you might remember, it was either last week or the week before that I issued a warning of sorts that one of the pitfalls Donald Trump is going to face as the weeks and days go by and as he gets closer to and then surpasses the number of delegates — this is human nature; it happens in many businesses; it has happened to me. One of the reasons I am fully aware of this is because of personal experience with it — the effort to change Trump is going to be intense from within his own campaign. It’ll be well intentioned, but it’ll be wrong.

There are people who tell Trump, “You’ve gotta change, now. You have won the nomination.  It’s not the primaries.  It’s the general.  You have to change.”  And what that means is: “You have to tone it down! You have to dial it back.  You have to become more presidential.”  Whatever the advice is, it will consist of people thinking that Trump now has to grow in stature, in office, and drop whatever it is that worked during the primaries because they’re over now, and we’re on to the general, and it’s not a whole slate of opponents. It’s one opponent, and there’s all kinds of money involved now.

And the biggest mistake Trump could make would be to take any of that advice.  The biggest mistake Trump could make would be to listen to anybody who tells him it’s time to change.  Now, some of the advice is intended to sabotage, even people supposedly in your own circle.  Folks, there’s envy and there’s jealousy within every organization, and in something like Trump’s — which is red hot. It is the focus of attention in the modern world today, and everybody involved wants the light to shine on them, too.  It’s human nature.
