Rush 24/7 Morning Update: It’s Panic Time
RUSH: In New York, Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo and city officials are worried that wealthy New Yorkers will decide to leave if the deductions are eliminated. Trump budget director Mick Mulvaney had the perfect comeback. He said, “Is it the federal government’s fault that New York taxes are so high that they’re driving people out of the state?”
New Assault Allegations: Franken (While Senator), Bill Clinton, Glenn Thrush
RUSH: Well! Another woman has come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Al Franken. Franken says he’s not gonna resign. He’s sitting out there contemplating and reflecting, which means he’s trying to remember any others that could come forward and try to get hold of him. If anybody’s gonna hire Hillary Clinton, it would be Al Franken.
FBI Has Not Verified the Trump Dossier
RUSH: They haven't verified anything. They haven't verified any collusion between Trump and Russia. They haven't verified anything, and yet this investigation is ongoing, and we all know why. But I'm telling you, the news that's popping up here is causing an implosion on the left. The details are all there. You're just not getting that particular characterization because it's the left writing about themselves.
One Year Later, Hillary STILL Won’t Accept the Election Results
RUSH: Maybe they could create a new PAC or nonprofit called Move On. Oh, wait, there already is one. I’m sorry. You know what the original Move On was? The original MoveOn.org, “Stop all this about Clinton and Lewinsky! It’s time to move on. It’s time to move on from Clinton and the women. It’s time to move on from Clinton and Lewinsky. It’s time to move.” And that’s the origins of MoveOn.org.
If Global Warming Were Science, It Wouldn’t Need a PR Campaign
RUSH: You don't have to sell science. Science doesn't need a marketing plan. Science doesn't need a political action committee. Science doesn't need donors. Science doesn't need to run ads. Science is, by definition, science. It's tested to the point of infallibility, and only then are conclusions published. And even then it's ongoing.
The Hateful Left Is Never Going to Have a Conscience and Apologize for Reprobate Behavior
RUSH: F. Scott Fitzgerald said the rich really are different. They're not like you and me. Maybe. But I'll tell you who isn't like you and me, and that's these leftist liberals and communists. They are not like you and me. And it is a mistake to assume you can rationally persuade them, talk to them, or whatever, like you would talk to anybody else that you feel comfortable talking to. They hate you. They're predisposed to hate you, and there's nothing that can change that, especially if they don't know who they are.
White House Names North Korea a Sponsor of Terrorism, Takes a Shot at Obama’s Pallets of Cash to Iran’s Mullahs
RUSH: This is America standing strong. This is America leading, this is what it looks like. And it's gonna make liberal snowflakes very nervous. It's going to frighten them. It's gonna make them feel offended and scared and make them think that Kim Jong-un might rightfully attack us because Donald Trump is provoking him!
People Bought Obama’s Lies About Obamacare, and Now They Blame the Trumpster for Sabotaging Health Insurance
RUSH: This is what we've all been talking about for four years now or longer. The design of this plan was to implode by indicting the private sector, the insurance companies as greedy SOBs. And you're supposed to say, "Yeah, let the government do it all from now on."
Tina Brown Goes After Google, Social Media (But Who Has Made Twitter/Facebook a Source Authority?)
RUSH: I got an email just yesterday, "Twitter is blowing up over something somebody just did or said." So what? What do you mean Twitter is blowing up? Who's Twitter? If you people in the news business would simply stop quoting what's said there, nobody would care.
Simple Manners and the UCLA Basketball Players
RUSH: This is just another example of how Trump happens to capture — what this is about is gratitude. It isn't about race. It isn't about anything other than simple manners and how we're raising people without them, it seems, more and more.
Rush 24/7 Stack of Stuff
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
