RUSH: Get this. Representative Ilhan Omar has called Stephen Miller a white nationalist. Stephen Miller is the high-ranking immigration adviser for President Trump. He’s a brilliant guy. I think they ought to put him on TV more. The thing is he’s Jewish. And she doesn’t like Jewish people to begin with. White nationalist? A Jewish guy is a white nationalist, Ilhan Omar? This is all they’ve got. Somebody does something, “White nationalist. White supremacist.” White this, white privilege, white whatever. You just have to laugh.
By the way, grab sound bite number 8 real quickly. This is Alex Burns. I mentioned that many in the Drive-By Media are really frustrated. What does Trump think he’s doing here? On immigration. He’s being hemmed in by having to keep campaign promises. This happened on CNN’s New Day today, discussion about Trump. New York Times national political correspondent Alex Burns had this to say about Trump’s thinking about being reelected in 2020.
BURNS: You’re seeing a picture of somebody who feels really kind of hemmed in by his 2016 campaign promises, right? That this is a guy who is looking back at the things he said he would do. His advisers have said consistently he wants to run on a theme of promises made, promises kept. A more three-dimensional politician might say at this point that I’ll get into some new spaces and I’ll show voters a side of me or an agenda that they haven’t seen yet because elections are also about the future, but this is a president who is focused on the past, his past campaign.
RUSH: Focused on the past! He’s focused on the past campaign! He’s keeping promises! He’s being sidetracked! And they say it’s Donald Trump who is out of touch. Now, we have had montage here, Stephen Miller, a bunch of Democrats and the Drive-By Media obsessed by Stephen Miller. They think he’s running Trump’s immigration policy and demanding all these people be fired. So we put together a montage of the obsession the Democrats and Drive-Bys have regarding Stephen Miller.
