RUSH: Look, I don’t want to start off here with a nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah See, I Told You So, but, man, I called it. I predicted it. Yesterday we had the cabinet meeting, and it was amazing. It was the first cabinet meeting with every cabinet secretary there. It’s taken this long to have them all confirmed. So they’re there, and it started out with each cabinet secretary, like the first day back in school from the summer. What you did during the summer; who you are; who’s your neighbor, what have you been working on; what are you gonna be working on; how much you like the teacher. And, of course, all that happened.
The cabinet secretaries, the ones that have been there described the work they’re doing as it relates to the Trump agenda. They talked about how great Trump is; how much they’re honored to be part of the Trump administration and the regime; how thrilled they are to be part of the cabinet; how exciting the agenda is, and the Drive-Bys were fit to be tied. The media was fit to be tied, and the Democrat Party was fit to be tied. And it’s mostly psychological.
Trump and his people are not supposed to be smiling. They’re supposed to be defeated. People are supposed to be defecting from Trump’s cabinet by now. People are supposed to be publicly resigning and raking Trump over the coals for being whatever the left thinks he is.
I mean, they’ve loaded the guns every day. They have fired the best they’ve got, and Trump is still there. Trump is still standing. Trump is still smiling. His cabinet’s still happy to be there and honored. And it doesn’t seem to be affecting Trump at all, at least outwardly, which is what the opponents of Trump want. They want to see some sign that they’re getting to him. They want to see some sign that Trump is beginning to crumble. They want to see any indication whatsoever that all of these political assassinations and these hit pieces and the silent coup taking place, they want evidence, they want visible evidence and examples that it’s working. And Trump just isn’t giving it to them.
So this cabinet thing set ’em off anew yesterday. We have here a number of elements to show you and bring to your attention just how affected they were by it. Let’s start with the audio sound bites. I mentioned this at the end of the program yesterday, but we didn’t have time to play it.
Now, if you are the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, your name happens to be Chuck You Schumer, if you have time to gather your staff together and write a Saturday Night Live-type script for a video and then you take the time to get your staff together and you produce this video, it must mean that you don’t have a whole lot that’s important going on.
And it must mean that you really don’t have any power worth talking about. If this is what you think your time is most productively spent on, then I think it’s an indication of how vacant and absent the Democrat Party is of real leadership. They are absent an agenda other than: “We’ve gotta get rid of Trump.” That’s it in toto, plus their newfound fascination with the F-bomb being used in public.
So I mentioned that Schumer and his boys had put together a video mocking Trump, and once again taking their cues from the media ’cause the media, as you know, is running the left-wing opposition to Trump. The Democrats are just placeholders in elective office where hopefully they get to implement what the media directs them to do. But here’s the audio, Schumer and staff. It’s a video mocking the Trump cabinet meeting
SCHUMER: I want to thank everybody for coming. I just thought we’d go around the room. Lucy, how’d we do on the Sunday show yesterday?
Lucy: Your tone was perfect. You were right on message.
SCHUMER: Michelle, how’d my hair look coming out of the gym this morning?
Michelle: You have great hair. Nobody has better hair than you.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE STAFFER: You know, before we go any further I just want to say thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda.
SCHUMER: That’s great. (laughter)
RUSH: There you go, and that circulated all over. The Drive-Bys thought it was great, it was funny, it’s an audition tape for Saturday Night Live. But if you’ve got time to do this, then you must not really have much that’s important going on. And, of course, did any of that make you laugh? I don’t know if any of you have seen it, but did that make you laugh? Did those people sound funny? (interruption) Yeah, when you see the video these people look stupid.
See, the difference is that Trump’s cabinet meeting was real. They think it was all fake. They think exactly what happened was that Trump called a pre-meeting and all these cabinet secretaries walk in there and Trump gave them marching orders, Trump gave them a script. “Okay, you, you’re gonna talk about how brilliant I am and you’re gonna talk about how happy you are to be here and how there’s no better meeting than this one, no better president. You, you’re gonna do the same thing and you’re gonna start out saying no better president and you’re never more honored to do anything.”
Then he goes down the cabinet list, tells everybody what to say. Then they have the meeting, let the cameras in. The Democrats think the Trump cabinet meeting was scripted, it was planned, probably rehearsed. If you watch it, it was genuine, it was legitimate, it was improv, it was ad-lib. There were not people reading scripts. The laughter was genuine. You can’t fake that. In the Schumer video, slash, audio, it sounds stiff, there isn’t anything funny about it, and it’s not even good parody because if you do not know — stop and think of this, folks.
