Said Rush Limbaugh today, talking about the Trump transition.
The Trump transition team is not imploding, folks. It is getting set to kick ass. What the media is trying to tell you, apparently there was some movement. Trump decided to get rid of some people, the Chris Christie team, apparently, in the process of putting together a national security team, and Mike Rogers was part of this, and Christie made a mistake, he went out and he was recruiting some lobbyists. Trump has made it plain and been very clear about it, that there aren't gonna be any lobbyists. He's not going to have the traditional Washington trappings to his administration....I've been advising anti-Trumpers to resist over-emotionalism, to be respectful, and to wait for specific policy proposals to object to and protest. I like peace and rationality and hate seeing the losing side in the election freaking out. But Limbaugh thinks the freakout — the "conniption" — is good for Trump. It's a test of whether he's really "draining the swamp." And I would add that disorder looks bad to people on the outside. You may get your protests cranked up and feel that your righteous anger is helping your cause, but don't forget how it looks to the rest of the country, especially people who just saw their side win the election. Don't they deserve the fruits of their victory? I said much the same thing when people here in Madison went wild after Scott Walker took office in 2011. I think the protesters believed they'd pulled off something epic and wonderful, but they were cementing Walker's victory, and 5 years later, the state government is even more firmly in the grip of a Republican majority.
[H]e found out people were doing things he didn't want done and he moved them out and he's replacing them. What's imploding is the media.... They're already ticked off that Trump went to dinner last night. Have you heard about this? Trump ditched the media and went to dinner. He went to 21. He had dinner with his family. Media is outraged. How dare he leave without telling us. How dare he leave without taking us....
ADDED: Here's the headline at NBC News, which I found very funny: "As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency."
