TRUMP ‘BOMB­SHELL’ DU JOUR

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

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.
