Senator Corker, why do you Republicans insist on insulting your own voters? Donald Trump is president because you and your colleagues failed to represent your voters-Rush Limbaugh, 6/13/18...(Even NY Times Editorial Board realized two years ago that it was Donald Trump's party)

Even the NY Times Editorial Board was honest enough to admit that 2016 Republican voters' message "is testimony to how thoroughly they reject the Republican politicians who betrayed them."...


6/13/18, "There’s No Trump Cult, Senator Corker!" Rush Limbaugh

"RUSH: Bob Corker, little guy, he just goes back and forth on Trump. He can’t make up his mind. And this is on Capitol Hill. I guess it’s a press conference. Corker talking to reporters about last night’s primary losses by Never Trumpers and other Republicans who opposed Trump. He just can’t figure it out.

CORKER: We’re in a strange place. I mean, it’s almost — you know, it’s becoming a cultish thing. And it’s not a good place for any party to — to end up with a cult-like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be of — purportedly of the same party.

RUSH: Senator Corker, this isn’t a cult. Why do you Republicans insist on insulting your own voters? It’s not a cult. You guys just don’t know the perspective. You don’t have the proper the perspective to look at this. I’m gonna tell you. I’m gonna try to help you, Senator....You’re looking at this the entirely wrong way....

Now, Senator Corker. He doesn’t understand how Never Trump candidates keep losing, and therefore he doesn’t understand how pro-Trump candidates keep winning. And we just played a sound bite with Senator Corker referring to this as a “cult,” and it’s really a bad thing, he said. It’s a bad thing when your party turns into a cult. Senator Corker, this isn’t a cult by any stretch of the imagination. Donald Trump does not have a Svengali hold on these people. In fact, Senator, if you want to know the truth, Donald Trump is not the cause of all this....

Donald Trump had the ability to understand where a majority of Republican voters were and what they were thinking and how fed up they were about certain things, and Donald Trump came along, and he spoke their language. He validated what they were thinking, and he has become their champion, because nobody else in your party stepped up! But these people weren’t running around aimless, and then Trump as a Svengali shows up and starts spinning tales and has them mesmerized into a cult.

Senator Corker, you gotta stop looking at things as this battle being left versus right or Republican versus Democrat. What you have to understand, Senator, is this new paradigm, if you will, is inside versus outside — and Never Trumpers are the essence of inside. And inside equals stagnant. Inside equals little guy doesn’t matter. Inside equals whatever globalists want to do and however much it harms average citizens, they’re gonna do it.

They’re simply tired of not being represented by you, Senator, and your colleagues. The people who’ve been voting for you don’t think you’ve been representing them. They think you’re representing yourself and your other buddies and special interests inside the political class of Washington. Donald Trump has come along and — in a year and a half — has fixed things that people like you and others have said can’t be fixed, and certainly not in this period of time, and we must go slow, and we must be deliberate.

You gotta understand, Senator, there’s nothing wrong with people thinking they’re losing their country because of open borders. They see it happening in Europe; they see it happening in California; they don’t want it happening to them. They want it stopped. People inside Washington want the borders open for whatever stupid reasons, and that’s the divide.

There’s nothing cultish about this. It’s just you haven’t taken the time to understand their values. You haven’t taken the time to understand their circumstances. You haven’t taken the time to give credence to what they think. Trump did. Trump does. But Trump is in this for different reasons too. Trump’s not cognizant of any cult that he has. He doesn’t have a cult. 

Donald Trump personally wants America to be great. He’s an American, he wants it to be great as it can be. He’s tired of watching it go in the wrong direction. He personally set out a course to try to fix it and change it. A bunch of people agree with him, and they’re supporting him. There’s no cult there.

This isn’t hard to understand. But if you inside the Beltway do not even understand what people believe to be a genuine crisis in the country, culturally and economically, then you’re never gonna understand what’s going on. You’re gonna continue to spite it and hold it in contempt. But it’s real.

The idea that there’s some kind of a cult is simply a lazy way of dismissing it, a lazy way of not having to explain why your side keeps losing! ‘Cause you don’t want to get down to the substance that might explain that. That would be painful. So you blame it on a cult, and you claim you don’t understand it. Yeah. So create the picture that a bunch of Trumpsters are waiting for the next Hale-Bopp comet to come along and hope they get on board. But you’re gonna miss everything going on, if that’s the case....

It’s not hard at all to understand this. But you’re never going to if you don’t try. And calling these people that love their country and are simply trying to maintain a level playing field where they and their family can have a shot at improving their lives, to call that a cult, is really insulting ’em. That’s not by any stretch what’s happening."...
