RUSH: There’s something I have to observe as a setup. I don’t know if you people have seen this or not. I’ve seen it twice now. Two different stories, one of them from a supposedly conservative columnist who never was and is now demonstrated that she isn’t. That would be Jennifer Rubin. People are beginning to invoke perhaps, they say, the necessity of the 25th Amendment. Do you know what the 25th Amendment is?
The 25th Amendment basically is the cabinet gets together and votes on whether or not the president is competent to serve, and if not, they vote him out of office and there’s a line of succession that would assume power. This happens. And more and more people — well, it’s two that I’ve seen and maybe more than that — are now saying we’re on the verge of needing this because Trump is losing his mind. Trump is wandering around aimlessly in the White House with no friends. He’s muttering to the photos on the wall. He’s lost it and is on the verge of losing it completely.
They evidence they cite is the president demanding to increase our nuclear arsenal by tenfold, despite everybody involved in this denying it. This, of course, is the springboard to Trump supposedly being called a moron by Secretary of State Tillerson, which then led to Trump suggesting an online IQ contest between him and Tillerson in which he would win.
Well, the left, not finding any evidence whatsoever and now scraping the bottom of the barrel with the Trump dossier, can’t find any evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians, are now grasping at every straw. If anybody’s losing their minds out there, it is the left, and this Harvey Weinstein story out there on top of everything else that’s losing their minds is speeding the process of them going crazy. We are witnessing the left break down and go nuts right before our very eyes. But there are these two references I’ve seen. And the Drive-Bys, all it takes is one Drive-By to pick it up, it will be amplified.
So I don’t know that Trump’s losing his mind. They have never thought he had one. But the reason I mentioned all this is because Trump was on with Hannity last night. Did any of you in there watch Trump with Hannity last night? Well, I saw a little bit of it, and I didn’t see anybody out of it. I saw somebody completely relaxed and confident, certainly not sitting on the edge of his seat worried. I didn’t see Humphrey Bogart juggling the marbles. I didn’t see anything of the sort.
And then at the ceremony at the White House this morning where Trump takes a huge slice out of Obamacare. I saw a relaxed guy laughing and having fun, as he was last night on the Hannity show. We don’t have any behavioral evidence that would indicate Trump’s losing his mind. It’s all found in the Drive-By Media. And it’s reported in the Drive-By Media by anonymous sources inside the White House, sources close to Secretary Mattis, sources close to Secretary Tillerson, sources close that do not wish to go on the record because of the sensitivity and the nature of the allegations being leveled and so forth. You just don’t see any evidence of it, but it’s out there now.
Jennifer Rubin’s piece today — she writes where now? She used to be at the Wall Street Journal. That’s right, she went to the Washington Post, a so-called conservative blogger. “When Do We Reach 25th Amendment Territory?” And there’s one other reference. I think there’s a story on Drudge that’s not headlined, but it mentions it in the story.
If you watch Trump this morning, you saw Trump last night, you see Trump at any time, he doesn’t appear to be anybody under a dark cloud to me. It seems to me that all of Trump’s opponents are the ones cracking up. I mean, the suicide watch is out on leftists, not us. Certainly not on Trump.
The Harvey Weinstein story, gee. I mean, in Hollywood they’re even shocked that somebody could fall this fast. Well, I know that Don Lemon is losing his mind. They’re all losing their minds over there. They’re losing their minds everywhere that all of this is happening to them. Look at what is rearing its head. These people have thought they occupied the moral high ground, the sexual harassers and abusers of women were exclusively all on the right.
Well, those stories are few and far between, but on the left you’ve got Teddy Kennedy, you’ve got Bill Clinton, you’ve gotten Weinstein, you’ve got Anthony Weiner, Carlos Danger and any number of other actors on the left and so many theories that I have developed to, in my mind, explaining all of this are now presenting themselves in front of everybody’s eyes.
I mean, they think they have the moral purity, the proper respect for women. And you look on the left and the serial abusers and rapists and the perverts are all found on their side, at least a significant number of them are. While these people have told themselves that they are clean and pure as the wind-driven snow. And they’re reaching I think their wits’ end at their inability to get rid of Trump. I mean, they thought they’d get this done inside of a month or two. I really do. They believed this stuff. They believed their own BS.
I’m sure they believe that Trump colluded with the Russians. I’m sure they believe that Putin stole the election. I’m sure they believe it. They’ve gotten themselves so immersed in it, they believe it. That’s not mentally healthy. And as they believe a succession of these crazy things and then they don’t come to pass, then they get even crazier and nuttier.
And it isn’t Trump. Trump is not the one that appears with a dark cloud over him no matter how the Drive-Bys want to spin things. What I see makes me refute everything the Drive-Bys are reporting about Trump’s state of mind. He seems to me to be with it, involved, knowledgeable, happy — that’s the key — Trump’s supposed to be miserable, you know, nobody’s supposed to be able to withstand this kind of withering assault day after day after day after day for over a year.
Everybody should have crumbled by now. But certainly nobody should be thriving at the end it, nobody…………………..
