WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 4

Rush Limbaugh Lauds Trump For Curtly Dismissing Congressional Black Caucus Demands: ‘Amen!’

Earlier this week, the Washington Post reported that during the much-discussed immigration meeting in which President Donald Trump called Haiti and African nations “shithole countries,” Trump acted combatively and erratically. At one point, much to the consternation of meeting attendees, Trump reportedly said he didn’t care about any demands made by the Congressional Black Caucus regarding immigration.

From the Post:

Trump was curt and dismissive, saying he was not making immigration policy to cater to the CBC and did not particularly care about that bloc’s demands, according to people briefed on the meeting. “You’ve got to be joking,” one adviser said, describing Trump’s reaction.

During today’s broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, host Rush Limbaugh praised Trump for sticking it to the CBC, calling it “one of the greatest news stories I’ve ever encountered.”

Stating that he was sure that the Democrats went into the meeting with an “air of superiority” because they felt that Trump was “an inferior” who doesn’t know what he’s doing, Limbaugh said the Democrats had “the audacity” to tell the president the Congressional Black Caucus had some demands as well.

“Trump said, ‘I don’t care what they want!’ Is. That. Not. Just. Fabulous?” The radio host told his audience. He added that the CBC was just another Democratic “special interest group” that everyone has bowed to in the past and that it was great that Trump didn’t cater to their demands this time.

“Amen!” Limbaugh exclaimed. “This is exactly why he was elected. This is the kind of disruption that when it happens you need to recognize it as another successful day, folks. Draining the swamp. Busting it up. Changing the direction of Washington.”
