LIMBAUGH: The DANGER Is That Trump Is Not One Of Us. “He’s A DOER”

RUSH: There is a story today in The Politico. “Teflon Don Confounds Democrats — Democrats have attacked the president every which way, but polling and focus groups show none of it’s working.” None of it! In addition, Rasmussen has just come out with a poll. I printed it out here (shuffling paper) and guess what? A majority, most voters… Not Trump supporters; they’re in this, but this is a sample of most voters. “Most Voters Welcome Trump’s Outreach to Congressional Democrats.” Now, the conventional wisdom is that Trump’s hurting himself, that Trump’s base, who are they?

If you believe the media, Trump’s base is a bunch of Neanderthals, white supremacist right-wingers. They hate and they despise and they’re dumb and they’re stupid and they’re knuckle-draggers, and they will defend Trump no matter what he does and they are a vast majority of the American population — except they can’t explain how that group of people elected Trump. But that’s what they tell themselves. They lie to themselves about their opponents. They lie to themselves about themselves and their own supporters.

“Despite their failure to advance President Trump’s agenda, congressional Republicans aren’t happy about his outreach to Democrats…” Paul Ryan… In fact, it has been learned that Ryan has told people at private fundraisers and private gatherings — and this isn’t a surprise, folks. At least it didn’t surprise me when I ran into it, that Paul Ryan has said that there is no chance for a border wall. It’s never gonna happen. That the Republicans are never gonna help Trump do this — and of course, these private dinners are where fundraisers are taking place, where donors are, and Ryan was assuring them.

It’s not a surprise to us. We know that the Republican Party doesn’t want to help Trump advance his agenda. But the Democrats, you know, Chuck and Nancy after their successful powwow with Trump on the debt ceiling, and Trump loved it ’cause something got done. Trump’s a doer. He’s not an ideologue. He liked getting something done. The Republicans are not helping him get anything done. So now he went to working with the Democrats and Rasmussen’s gone out and polled it.

They have found out “66% of likely U.S. voters say it is good for the country if Trump works with congressional Democrats to advance his agenda. Just 13% think that the bipartisan cooperation” i.e., Trump working with Democrats “is bad. Twenty-one percent are undecided.” Now, likely voters is not a precise sample. You really want registered voters. Likely voters doesn’t include people that definitely do vote, and so what they think doesn’t matter as much, if they’re only likely to vote.

But you have a pool of registered voters, likely voters, there’s more guarantee that that is a better sample. And only 19% here believe the president should continue to rely on congressional Republicans to pass his agenda. This has always been a danger. In my mind, it’s always been the danger. Trump, because he’s not an ideologue — meaning he does a lot of things that people like me and conservatives applaud, but he’s not one of us. He’s a doer. He will work with people to help get things done. He knows what got him elected.

He knows the wall. He knows repealing and replacing Obamacare, taxes. He knows that stuff. But if he’s working with people aren’t gonna help him get it done, what good are they to him? And that’s who the Republicans are. So here come Chuck and Nancy. Chuck and Nancy are willing to help Trump get things done, and Chuck and Nancy are wily. Chuck and Nancy also know that Trump’s not an ideologue, and they can see that the Republicans don’t want to help Trump because the Republicans are scared to death of being tied to any success that Trump would have.

I know that sounds strange, but don’t doubt me.
