BREAM: The coverage of President George H.W. Bush’s legacy has been mostly positive, with some exceptions. We talked about those last night. But our next guest says the media never treated the president with this kind of civility when he was alive. Here to explain, Rush Limbaugh, host of the Rush Limbaugh Show. Great to have you with us tonight.
BREAM: Okay, so last night we talked about a couple of headlines, including one from the AP that had to be… well … reworked, shall we say, and some others that had an immediate negative reaction to the death of President Bush 41. And now in these coming days, we see a lot of fawning and talking about how he was so great at bipartisanship; he was a different kind of Republican. What’s that all about?
RUSH: Well, it’s phony. They never treated him this way when he was president. They were vicious to him like they are vicious and partisan to every Republican. I think it’s just a vehicle for them, Shannon, to be able to contrast what they think Trump is versus the way they’re telling us Bush was. The thing is that they never treated George W. Bush this way or George H.W. Bush — either one of them — this way. They had just as much animus for Bush 41 and Bush 43 as they do Trump for different reasons.
But since the current objective is to get rid of Donald Trump, however they can do it — driving down public opinion or Mueller’s report and impeachment — anything they can do to contrast Trump with what they say is the greatness and the way it ought to be. Every good Republican, in the media’s idea, loses. That’s why they celebrate Bush, because what did he do? He raised taxes. He was “bipartisan.” He went against the interests of his own party. That’s what made him a good guy.
And it’s just it’s just phony. It’s nothing more than a vehicle for them to continually contrast this made-up image that they have of George H.W. Bush — which, by the way, what they’re saying about him now is true. All of the class and all the dignity all the sophistication. But they never reported on him this way when he was president.
