Disregard the Fake News! Trump's Mexico Tariff Threat Worked

Added 06-10-19 01:42:03pm EST - “RUSH: The original coverage on this was exactly true. It was something that was unique, it hasn't happened before, and it was good for the United States.” -


Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Disregard the Fake News! Trump’s Mexico Tariff Threat Worked”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

RUSH: It was fascinating. When the media first started reporting on it, they gave it great huzzahs. I mean, they gave it great coverage. They were very positive about it. And then it’s almost like somebody: “Wait, wait, wait, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute, we can’t do this.” And the coverage turned immediately negative. I’m talking about the tariff deal with Mexico that Trump announced on Friday.

You ought to go be back — I have ’em here, the original news stories, some of the greatest coverage Trump’s ever gotten. Well, maybe not some of the greatest, but at least it was right on, it was accurate and so forth and then you could just see a switch get flipped, and everybody in the Drive-By Media begin lying about it.

When New York Times comes out, “There’s nothing new about this. This deal was done months ago, and Trump just chose to announce it now. But there’s nothing new here.” And that is a full-fledged crock! There’s been never been anything like this done with Mexico and the way Mexico’s reacting and what they’re saying about it is proof of that.

Anyway, folks, I’m here, I’m on the case. We got Snerdley back. Snerdley spent a couple days up on 42nd Street trying to arrange funding for a new Mac Pro. Anyway, great to have you here. Telephone number’s 800 — (laughing) — 282-2882 if you want to be on the program. The email address, [email protected]

I mean, people were complaining about, “Why did he announce this on Friday? You never do a major announcement on Friday. It gets buried or it gives the media the weekend to recast it, to reshape it and so forth.” And maybe there’s something to that, I don’t know. But he announced it on Twitter late Friday afternoon.
