LIMBAUGH: GOP Is About 30 Years Late On Fearing Damage To Their Brand

RUSH: So here comes this story about the Republicans fearing damage to the brand. “Republican campaign chiefs raced to distance themselves from Trump’s decision not to single out white supremacists…”

He did single ’em out! He singled ’em out in the second press conference on this. (laughing) He did! But the media didn’t let him get away with it. The media said, “You didn’t mean it! You’re only doing it because we shamed you into doing it. So you’re not gonna get any credit from us! You didn’t mean it, it isn’t in your heart, so it doesn’t count.” So Trump went out and did a third press conference in total frustration. “Okay, screw you! You want to know what’s up? Here’s the deal,” and he unloaded, and everybody had a cow.

If I may be bold here, if I may be helpful, Republicans, the idea here that you fear damage to your brand? You’re about 30 years late in realizing this, and the reason that you have ongoing fear of your brand is that for the first time it somebody’s fighting back against these allegations, and that’s what’s making you nervous. You’ll note that it’s Donald Trump fighting back against all this that’s really what makes the Republicans nervous. The Republicans have never pushed back on this. You know it as well as I do, especially you who have voted for them based on their promises to push back, to fight back.

They never do!

For 30 years, the Democrats have been able to call Republicans anything with impunity — racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe, and add on to that — and there’s been never any pushback. All there is, is Republicans trying to kiss up to the media so that they individually are not included in the smear. Well, this is what pushing back looks like, just like this is what trying to strip power away from the establishment looks like.

This is what it looks like when you push back. It was never gonna be easy, and it was never gonna be pretty. Somebody is trying to save the Republican brand by defending it against all of these smears: Racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia. Too many Republicans have been conditioned to go along with the allegation and to ask for exemption from it.
