LIMBAUGH: Is Trump This IGNORANT? Does He Not Know What Got Him Elected?

RUSH: Now, I’m not defending Trump.

What I’m telling you, folks, is I don’t know yet. But it looks to me like Trump is tweeting all morning long that there is no deal, period, and there certainly isn’t a deal on getting rid of the wall. It may happen later, but it’s not gotten rid of. It’s not gone. Boil everything down. Is Trump…? I’m asking you who voted for him. Is he this tone deaf? Is he this ignorant? Does he not know what got him elected? Does he not…? And I’m telling you, some of the staunchest Trump supporters are out there, and they’ve jumped ship.

Steve King from Iowa’s talking about (paraphrased), “This is it! Trump’s blown it. What the media couldn’t do, Trump did,” i.e., force his supporters to leave. Mitch and Paul are probably up there going, “All right! All right! We’re saved.” And Chuck and Nancy are having talks with the media saying, “What do we need to do to keep it going our way?” Meanwhile, Trump’s down in Florida actually doing some work what the rest of these people are engaged in PR messaging and so forth, which will probably triumph over reality.

It always does. That’s one of my major problems with media in general. So here’s Trump’s tweet: “No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.” “The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built.” And Schumer and Pelosi more or less agreed with Trump’s take on the meeting. They had a joint statement that hit inboxes as Trump was talking this morning.

“President Trump’s tweets are not inconsistent with the agreement reached last night, and, as we said last night, there was no final deal, but there was agreement on the following…” Oh! There wasn’t a deal? But Chuck and Nancy said they had a deal and that Trump had caved on the wall. Or somebody did. Maybe they didn’t assert or allege it and the media reported it. “President Trump’s tweets are not inconsistent with the agreement reached last night.” Not inconsistent? “As we said last night, there was no final deal.” There wasn’t?

Well, America woke up today thinking there was and that they’re eating the excrement sandwich. Now Chuck and Nancy said, “As we said last night there was no deal.” You didn’t say last night there was no deal, Chuck and Nancy. You led everybody to believe there was a deal and Trump caved on it. “But there was agreement on the following. We agreed the president would support enshrining DACA protections into law and encourage the House and Senate to act. What remains to be negotiated are the details of border security…” That remains to be negotiated? Like the wall remains to be negotiated? Yes. “What remains to be negotiated are the details of border security with a mutual goal of finalizing all details…”

So they’ve not finalized the detail.
