TRUMP ‘BOMBSHELL’ DU JOUR
The news media has been on a never-ending quest to build a case for the impeachment of President Trump for many months., complete with the now familiar press feeding frenzy.
“Think about all of those bombshells. You don’t even have to remember the specific bombshell. All you have to remember is that each one was treated as the smoking gun, the answer,” talk radio host Rush Limbaugh recently told his audience, advising them to recall all the impeachment coverage stretching back for weeks.
“Every one of those stories was treated as the ‘gotcha,’ ‘this is it,’ ‘we’ve got the goods on Trump.’ Every one of those stories, if you read down far enough, had to include a sentence or maybe a short paragraph acknowledging no evidence for the allegations has yet been found, but suspicions remain high, or some such thing. Think about all of these bombshells, all of these reports, all of the time spent,” Mr. Limbaugh continued, citing a recent Media Research Center study that found that an overwhelming percentage of Trump coverage was hostile.
“There are more than a hundred days of news stories featuring a conclusion or a supposition or a good likelihood or whatever, that this was it! We finally have come across the bit of information that’s going to nail Trump. This is it. This is what proves the collusion — every day for I don’t know how many days,” Mr. Limbaugh said, concluding that none of the suggestions had proven true.
President Trump’s nominees to fill key Cabinet positions and judgeships have faced unprecedented stonewalling from Democrats.
