Rush Limbaugh Calls Out Media for Pretending Trump Is Losing Base

Written by Joe Scudder

Despite the media claiming people are softening on immigration, says Rush Limbaugh, it is still a lead issue.

The media went on a “charted course” to convince us that Donald Trump was losing his base, according to Rush Limbaugh. As part of that strategy, the media is also pretending that voters are softening on immigration.

The fact is, as Limbaugh points out, that people may actually be feeling MORE strongly about illegal immigration.

Breitbart reports, “Rush Limbaugh: Ignore the Media Crap, We’re Winning on Immigration.

People openly getting into this country with no effort to stop them. The Republican and Democrat Party both advocating for amnesty and continuing to let any number of people in. Donald Trump’s elected because he’s the one guy in the campaign with a position that said, “Stop it!” So Donald Trump gets elected on that basis, and there were other things, too, but that, I’m convinced, was at the top of the list.  It might have been tight.  The top five might have been close together, but it was at the top.

The media then immediately begins on a charted course to destroy Trump’s popularity and to specifically drive a wedge between Trump’s voters and Trump.  As part of that campaign, they lie about it and suggest that they are succeeding.  After others here and there about, “Yeah, some Trump fans are very nervous.”  Remember every special election the media would tell us that people now realize they erred greatly voting for Trump and are eager to vote for the Democrat now to make amends for their mistake. Every special election!

And yet they were wrong every time because the Republican won practically all of them. […]There wasn’t a bit of truthfulness to any of the allegations that Trump was losing his base. And yet throughout the past months, year and a half or longer, the media has been trying to suggest that many Trump voters are embarrassed and wish they had not voted for Trump, wish they could do it again — and in fact, cannot wait for the next election to go out and correct their mistake.

Part of that is to try to create the illusion — and that’s what it is — that the people that voted for Trump on the basis of immigration are softening on it and are not nearly as hard on it as they were when they election him. They want you to believe that momentum and public opinion is shifting and is now trending toward being in favor of illegal immigration. Nothing could be further from the truth.
