Rush Limbaugh just made major news.
The top-rated talk show host confessed to a surprising truth about the President.
And Limbaugh said four words about Donald Trump that no one ever thought they would hear.
Limbaugh made a special appearance on Fox News Sunday for an interview with host Chris Wallace.
Like many in the media, Wallace believes Limbaugh and other conservative media figures are puppeteers pulling Trump’s strings.
During the government shutdown, many in the press – as well as in the Democrat Party – accused Limbaugh of being the mastermind behind the government shutdown.
They claimed Trump was going to sign a compromise bill, but then Limbaugh pitched a fit on his radio show and Trump cowered in fear of a conservative media backlash.
Limbaugh took this obvious fake news head-on during the interview.
“If these people in the media, Chris, really thought that I was telling Trump what to do and when, they’d be calling me, they’d be asking me about it, they’d want to get down to the dirty details,” Limbaugh declared.
Limbaugh continued picking apart the so-called “mainstream” media lie that Trump was nothing more than a stooge who sat around not knowing up from down unless Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity weighed in.
Republican Presidents constantly face media insults about their intellect.
Even though Dwight D. Eisenhower oversaw the D-Day invasion, the liberal reporters at the time considered him a fool.
Fake news reporters in the 1980s smeared Ronald Reagan as an “amiable dunce.”
Today, alleged “journalists” paint a picture of Donald Trump as a couch potato who consumes Fox News and talk radio to figure out what he’s supposed to think on any given issues.
“People don’t really believe what they’re saying about this,” the top-rated conservative talk show host continued. “It’s just another effort to continue to try to diminish the president, diminish Trump, as somebody who doesn’t know what he’s doing, can’t do it without guidance from the so-called wacko right.”
Limbaugh flat out told Chris Wallace that he himself has no influence over White House policy.
“It’s not at all the way he’s governing, and there isn’t anybody doing what I do that has a thing to do with actually making policy for this president,” he said.
“He cares about what everybody thinks, but I don’t make policy.”
Trump has praised Limbaugh for having millions of listeners.
So if anyone holds the ability to push policy in any given direction, it is the American people.
Limbaugh’s program gives an outlet for concerned citizens to make their voices heard.
And politicians should be responsive to the concerns of their constituents.
Unlike other Republican Presidents – such as George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush – Donald Trump actually cares what his base thinks.
The Bushes would lie to voters about their commitment to conservative principles on the campaign trail and then govern like liberal Democrats once in office.
Trump keeps his finger on the pulse of his base.
Fake news reporters – looking for a way to attack the President without looking like they are smearing the voters – cast the President as a windup doll for conservative media.
But it’s a lie that Trump supporters easily see through.
Do you agree that the media unfairly attacks President Trump as a puppet of conservative talk shows hosts?
