RUSH: As you know, the president cited me in an early-morning tweet today in the seven a.m. hour thanking me for my characterization of his press conference yesterday, and by virtue of that, I think acknowledging that he is appreciative of the fact that I get it, that I understand who he is, where he is, where he came from, where he’s going, how he survives, how he works.
I frankly don’t think there’s anybody else in media that understands Trump any better than I do. And I say that with no braggadocio. I say that with no airs of anything. I just factually believe it to be the case.
There’s a Politico story on Trump tweeting me. There’s TheHill.com story and a Daily Mail one. The Daily Mail, interestingly, is a little snarky. Even though we constantly refer to the Daily Mail and we hype them here and praise their work, they were a little snarky. Not big snark. It was minor snark.
