The mainstream media was aflame on Friday over reports that President Trump was derogatory about less-developed countries and the immigrants they send to the United States.
According to sources that wouldn’t identify themselves, he called those countries: “S—holes.”
But the nation should ignore the words used, and focus on the results reached by the president, according to talk radio superstar Rush Limbaugh.
The conversation was about Democrat demands that illegal aliens already in the country be protected, even given citizenship and the vote. They had had an open discussion with the president earlier, and appeared confident that their new proposal, to hand out citizenships and voting rights – without much if any border security – was about to be moved forward.
Then they presented it to Trump.
“And what did Donald Trump do?” Limbaugh said on Friday, while the mainstream media repeated, over and over and over, what the two unidentified sources claim Trump said.
“He blew the whole thing up with one question, with one question he blew it up. And you know what the question was? Forget the words used. The question was: Why do you people on the Democrat side want to continue to bring people to this country that are not going to benefit this country? Why instead do you not want to bring the best and brightest of the world to this country? Why is it that you think that we need to bring people to this country who are incapable of helping themselves.”
Limbaugh said the Democrats had left the earlier meeting in the White House “thinking that they were on the verge of getting a deal on two things: the DREAMers, the DACA kids and comprehensive immigration reform.”
He said the answer to why the Democrats are insistent on those actions is clear.
“Because Jennifer Palmieri of the Center for American Progress let the cat out of the bag earlier this week by admitting something that we all knew, and that is that the Democrats’ version of immigration is all about securing additional votes. She let the cat out of the bag, and that’s what they were going up doing, and Trump knows it,” Limbaugh said.
He reports that the Center For American Progress Action Fund distributed a memo saying illegal immigrants brought into the United States at a young age are a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”
In fact, a report suggested that four or five GOP-majority states could be shoved into the Dems’ column if those hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens abruptly are given the vote.
The memo was sent by Palmieri to allies asking Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”
In essence, it was a call to shut down the government, since its funding runs out next week unless the GOP and Democrats agree on further spending.
The memo explained if Dreamers don’t get the vote, it would “jeopardize Democrats’ electoral changes in 2018 and beyond.”
While reports on Friday confirmed that former President Obama used comparatively offensive terminology, too, and was defended by those in the media, there’s a long list of previous presidents and vice presidents who have expressed their feelings with very strong words.
Those include, besides Obama multiple times, Abraham Lincoln, Vice President Joe Biden, Vice President Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, John F. Kennedy and Harry Truman.
Limbaugh explained that after the earlier meeting, Democrats thought Trump was “weakened.”
“And they show up and they present this to him. And his reaction, forget the word that he used, or is alleged to have used, the terms or what have you, you can have your thought on that or not. But his question to them was essentially, ‘Why in the world do you look at this issue as something that is not helpful to this country? It’s only helpful to you.’”
He said it’s a good thing that the DACA deal is “blown sky-high.”
He pointed out that Democrats say they cannot deport people to such places, that are in strife, poverty-racked and more.
“Trump said, ‘Why do you want them in the first place?’ And then he threw in ‘Why not people from Norway?’ Well, of course that caused another conniption fit, because then the Democrats in the room, ‘A-ha. He’s a racist. He’s a pig. He’s a racist. We knew it.’ And now they can’t stop talking about it. They offend me far more than Donald Trump does,” Limbaugh said
Trump, however, looked at what the Democrats wanted, and “instinctively understood that this is rotten, that this is not anywhere near making America great again.”
“Remember, the Democrats want these people as voters. The Democrats need a permanent underclass. Donald Trump is looking at all of this. Every bit of his agenda as aimed at making America great again. It’s not just a slogan with him. So when you strip away all the wording and all of the histrionics and this overblown and offended, ‘Oh, my God,’ reaction to what he said… When you look at the substance… There’s a column here by Scott Greer at The Daily Caller. The headline is right on the money: ‘Trump Blows up the Immigration Debate with Just One Question.”
He said the media is lathered up about the comment because they live for their hope that something will happen that will force Trump out.
