    Limbaugh: 2 things raise red flags for Trump

    Limbaugh: 2 things raise red flags for Trump

    Published: 3 hours ago

    While insisting he’s not throwing anyone under the bus in the presidential race, radio host Rush Limbaugh is raising red flags concerning statements by Donald Trump that he says could be “potentially huge errors” for the Republican front-runner.

    “If you’re a conservative voter in the Republican primary, these two things have gotta raise some red flags for you people, I would think,” Limbaugh said on his national broadcast Monday.

    The first concerns Trump’s answer to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” when the billionaire businessman was asked: “What do you think of Ted Cruz?”

    “I don’t think he has the right temperament. I don’t think he’s got the right judgment,” Trump responded.

    “You look at the way he’s dealt with the Senate where he goes in there like a … You know, frankly, like a little bit of a maniac. You’re never gonna get things done that way. You can’t walk into the Senate and scream and call people liars and not be able to cajole and get along with people. He’ll never get anything done, and that’s the problem with Ted.”

    Limbaugh sounded stunned by Trump’s remark.

    “Whoa! Wait just a second here,” the radio host exclaimed. “Doesn’t that kind of describe the way Trump has been dealing with people he disagrees with? I mean, he’s been calling them stupid, he’s been calling them incompetent, he’s been saying you can’t get anything done with these people.”

    “Even people who are not particularly aligned with Cruz on the right have gotta be curious about this because this is no different than what the media would say about Ted Cruz,” Limbaugh continued.

    “This is no different than what the Democratic Party would say. I mean, this is what the Republican establishment would say, for crying out loud. I mean, this is akin to saying, ‘I’m the guy who can cross the aisle and work with the other side.’ That hasn’t been the way Trump has come off up ’til now. He’s not positioned that way.”

    Limbaugh said the Trump strategy was glaringly obvious.

    “This is obviously the Trump campaign deciding to use the most common criticism against Cruz because they see that Cruz has negatives. They see that Cruz is not liked by the Republican establishment, and so they’re just piggybacking on that, I think, as a way for Trump to maybe score some points with the Republican establishment. ‘Cause after all, he needs ‘em on his side for the nomination if he wants there to be the respect and unity, and not have to go third party.

    “So he’s decided to go after Cruz here in the way the establishment Republicans go after Cruz, in the way the media goes after Cruz, in the way the Democrats go after Cruz. He’s essentially put on his John McCain hat here and is saying, ‘I’m Donald McCain, and I’m the guy that can cross the aisle and work with the other side. Ted Cruz can’t.’ I was kind of surprised by that.”

    He labeled Trump’s answer about Cruz “a huge mistake.”

    “On paper, it’s a huge mistake,” Limbaugh explained. “Trump gets away with his mistakes. Such is the bond of loyalty that his support base has for him that he gets away with them. And I don’t think he’s made that many. Don’t misunderstand. But for any of you who are holding out hope that Trump is a genuine conservative. A genuine conservative, even in the Republican field, would not go after Cruz this way. So that just raised a red flag for me.”

    The second flag came with Trump’s response Sunday to a question on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    “What do you think of Justice Scalia’s remarks, and where are you today on affirmative action?” asked host Jake Tapper.

    Tapper’s question stemmed from an oral argument for a case challenging affirmative action at public universities last week. As reported by the Hill, Scalia posited that minority students who were not qualified for admission at elite universities would perform better at “less-advanced schools.”

    Trump told Tapper: “I thought it was very tough to the African-American community, actually. I don’t like what he said. I actually saw it in print, and I’m going … I read a lot of stuff. I’m going, ‘Whoa.’ I have great African-American friendships. I have just amazing relationships. But, yeah, I was very surprised at Scalia’s statements, actually.”

    Limbaugh noted, “Well, they weren’t ‘Scalia’s statements.’ They were arguments that had been submitted to the court that he was engaging in oral argument over.”

    After his analysis, Limbaugh’s staff informed him that “MSNBC cannot stop reporting you turned on Trump today.”

    “I did not throw Trump under the bus today, I did not … turn on Trump,” the host stressed. “I haven’t turned on anybody. I haven’t thrown anybody away, I haven’t announced support for anybody. All I did was raise a question about the way Trump went after Cruz.”

    Regarding the national news media, Limbaugh says they have been waiting and hoping for a moment like this where it would even appear the radio powerhouse might be turning against Trump.

    “They think I have the ability to make or break any of these candidates. They can’t. They think I have the moral authority,” Limbaugh concluded.

    As WND reported, Donald Trump’s campaign rocketed to 41 percent with primary voters in a new national poll released Monday, but he trails Ted Cruz by 10 points in the early-voting state of Iowa.

    Yes, you did throw Trump under the bus today. Shame on you! You think your listeners support Cruz? Oh wake the hell up! They support Trump!!

    Well, don't take my word for it, just wait to watch your ratings go down, down, down.

    Here's the deal on Cruz Mania versus Trump Common Sense.

    Trump wants to deport all illegal aliens and build a wall.

    Cruz doesn't want to deport illegal aliens and he can't build the wall without appointing Donald Trump to build it for him.

    That's because Cruz can't do anything because he's never done anything except argue bad Constitutional law. He's supposed to be an "expert" lawyer, magna cum laude form Harvard, yet he believes wrongly that a Constitutional Amendment is required to stop automatic birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens, totally ignoring the "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" which is already the second requirement in order to be a native born citizen eligible for citizenship by birth on US soil.

    Trump believes the 14th Amendment require a citizen parent subject to the jurisdiction of the United States before you get automatic birthright citizenship, and he's absolutely right!

    Cruz believes on immigration that a) we secure the borders first and b) then decide what to do with 20 million or more illegal aliens in the country.

    Trump says a) deport all illegal aliens now and b) secure the borders and build a wall.

    What makes more sense to you, Rush? If you don't get the illegal aliens out that are here now, THEY are the magnet for more illegal immigration, because all their relatives twice removed can show up and beg for their housing and their food and jobs with the employers of the illegal aliens already here. When you deport all the illegal aliens here now, new ones coming in have no "safety net" of relatives near or distant to force into housing them, feeding them and getting them jobs, so they stop coming because they don't know anyone here to go hide behind, feed off and run drugs with.

    The biggest magnet here in the US for illegal immigration are the 20 million or more illegal aliens who are already here. They have to go, as Trump says "get them the hell out of here". And, he's absolutely right!

    Trump's comments about Cruz's actions in the Senate were absolutely right. Cruz hasn't passed a legislation. To do that you have to be able to convince your compradres in the US Senate to vote with you. Much like a President would have to do to convince Congress of legislation you feel is necessary to protect and promote the best interests of the American People and the United States.

    Trump attacks his enemies who attack him. He didn't start the feud with Univision, Univision did. Trump didn't start the feud with the media, the media did. Trump didn't start the feud with the Republican "Establishment", the Establishment did. Trump didn't start the feud with Muslims, Muslims did. Trump didn't start the feud with the Mexicans, Mexican did.

    How dare you suggest or imply otherwise? Shame on you.

    May your listeners turn to ALIPAC for their news and opinions, and leave you with you with ... deafening silence.

    I think that the sentiments Rush expresses here are valid. A lot of people like both Cruz and Trump and could be open to both candidates. However, these very discerning voters are not going to respond well to either Cruz or Trump attacking the other.

    It is good advice Donald Trump and Ted Cruz should both heed.

    Someone like Cruz who doesn't know yet what he wants to do with illegal aliens until some unknown time after the borders may or may not ever be secured versus someone like Trump who has already committed publicly to deporting all illegal aliens within a year and getting Mexico to pay for the wall, one way or another, is not someone in my opinion who deserves a break today through Rush Limbaugh or anyone else. I realize 32% of our forum is for Cruz while 58% is for Trump, but we are still a forum that opposes illegal immigration. That is our purpose. That is our function. And we should stand by that. Right?

    If Cruz doesn't fall on his own,Trump will knock him out, so what is the point of this pandering to someone who doesn't even know what he wants to do with illegal aliens until sometime after our borders may or may not ever be secured?
