RUSH: So we are one day away from the strangest inauguration of a president in our lifetimes. That would be the inauguration of Joe “Plugs” Biden. There’s an interesting story here today from The Federalist: “Trump Set To Leave Office With A Higher Approval Rating Than George W. Bush.”
There was also a survey last week that told the story that Donald Trump’s the most admired man in the country, most admired man in the world, maybe. And everybody looks at that, how in the world can that be? Well, it can, and it was. And now he’s got a higher approval rating than George W. Bush. Trump is leaving office with an approval rating of about 40%. And, as you know, George W. Bush left office with just under 30% of Americans on his side.
What does this tell you? Well, it tells you a number of things, but I think that it is proof that fighting back, defending yourself and, more importantly, defending your base, works. It is a vastly more successful strategy, a vastly more successful way of using your power and maintaining it.
You know, it took the Drive-By Media seven years, almost the entirety of two Bush terms, to get his approval numbers down to the thirties. And they celebrated when they did. We’ve played for you over and over Wolf Blitzer practically having an orgasm multiple times an hour reporting “Breaking news! George W. Bush approval rating in the thirties.” They had been struggling to get there. And they finally pulled it off.
Now, you would think, based on the news coverage this week and just on the overall presentation of events, you would think that Donald Trump was leaving office with no approval, that everybody hates the guy’s guts. And it’s the exact opposite. Now they’re having to say, “Okay. Well, we’re dealing with a cult here.” The Drive-Bys are trying to draw a difference between the 75 million people that voted for Trump — they are a cult — and the oddball, kookanons at QAnon.
