What Trumpís Letter to Comey Means
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | May 10, 2017 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 05/10/2017 1:48:15 PM PDT by Kaslin

RUSH: Right there it is at Fox: “Growing questions over president’s assertion that Comey told him three times he wasn’t being investigated.” You knew that was gonna happen. So why would Trump put that in the letter? Why would Trump assert that? Some people think, “Trump just can’t help himself. He’s a child. Trump had to put in that he’s innocent, he’s not guilty, he didn’t do anything.” That’s not what Trump was doing. You have to know Donald Trump. It’s no crime knowing Donald Trump — and I don’t mean “know him,” know him. I mean know how he thinks, how he speaks.

I’ve said it once, I’ve said it many times: There’s nobody many American media that can better Donald Trump — the way he speaks, how he speaks, and the connection he has with his voters — than your host, me, El Rushbo. I’m gonna tell you, when Trump puts in this letter… It may not have been wise to do it; I’m not even commenting on that. But I think you always have to remember he’s not a politician and doesn’t care to be. So he’s not trying to go in there and master the system.

He’s in there to be who he is, and if it blows up the system? Fine. Drain the swamp. However you want to characterize it. What Trump was saying… Look, no question he’s using that assertion as an opportunity to tell people, ’cause Comey’s not telling anybody. I mean, why would Trump put that in there if it’s not true? Can anybody think why somebody…? Trump has to know that statement’s gonna become — at some point when these clowns cool off, it’s gonna become 00 a focal point. It’s gonna become a target.

Why would Trump lie about Comey having told him three times he’s not being investigated if he is being investigated? What upside is there for Trump, for there to be a discovery that Comey had not cleared him? Now, given fake news, anybody can make anything up these days and call it news, which happens way too often in the Drive-By Media. What Trump was saying was, “Even though — even though — I am not being pursued, I’m still getting rid of the guy.” What Trump wanted people to believe, what he is trying to convey was that he’s not the kind of guy who would leave things alone and not do anything.

As long as he’s not in trouble, fine and dandy. Let Comey do what he wants to do. He’s not that kind of guy. What he was saying is, “Even though Comey’s told me that I didn’t do anything — he hasn’t found anything — I still had to get rid of the guy because I find what he’s doing outrageous.” He was actually trying to credit himself for non-prejudicial thinking. But the way it reads to critics is that Trump’s lost in his narcissism and his ego and just had to tell people. “He just had to tell people!

“He just couldn’t wait for the investigation. He had to tell people that Comey told him he’s not being investigated.” (laughing) “Even though you told me three times…” So now they’re looking at the that, and they’re gonna find a source somewhere. An anonymous source will say, “I don’t think that’s what Comey was telling us in the office.” You know damn well! You can make book on that. You can make book there’s gonna be at least an anonymous source, maybe two who will say, “No, the director didn’t say that to President Trump.”

Just get ready for it, ’cause you know it’s coming.

It was a bit of a weird comment. But screw it. See my tagline and know that I don’t give a s*** either. Paying attention to and taking these CS’ers seriously is our first mistake.

Quite simple really.

If Comey told Trump he's not being investigated, then Comey has to concede that Trump did not fire him with the intent of stopping an investigation

President Trump should be working day and night to destroy the enemies of the American people. The enemy that is working to conquer America and put all it’s people into servitude to them.

The enemy I’m speaking of is the American democrat party.

I think the Dilbert guy is correct: Trump knows he's at least kinda right, and maybe he is in fact completely right, about this "three times" stuff, even if the rest of us can't find a source right now. But what is happening right now is that everybody is "raising questions" about it, and the phrase "not being investigated" is being discussed (by those people who are "raising questions", and by Rush and others discussing those people who are "raising questions", and by people reading Rush and others who are discussing those people who are "raising questions", that lived in the house that Jack built) and that is what is going to stick in people's minds.

Trump is living rent-free in establishment, MSM, and liberal heads. He owns them right now. I see it on FB and Twitter with my friends. He owns them.

There, you did a much better job of explaining it so even people in Rio Linda would understand.

I heard Scummy asked for more money to investigate the Russia/Trump connection and the libs are flipping out with that with their “A-has”..but the more likely story is Trump said enough of this BS, more money to investigate something the left completely invented in tneir duseased minds

I mean, why would Trump put that in there if it’s not true?...yes, one thing we know for sure now is that Comey and the FBI haven't come up with anything on Trump, or Comey never would have been fired - Trump would have kept him around to keep him happy and make sure a resentful Comey didn't spill everything he knew to the press - anonymously of course......

Not only is he living rent free in their heads, he regularly sets off firecrackers that explode their heads! Still not tired of winning.

You have to think about this.

Everytime Comey says he's investigating....means he hasn't found anything. There was no....we have sufficient evidence to go forward....

Wrong. The JD has denied 100% that Comey requested more money.

This is fake news and you bought it lock, stock and barrel.

Hmmmm

If Trump talked with Comey three times, like when he praised him and shook his hand, even.

And Comey did not say “I’m investigating you”.

Is that kind of like ‘three times you informed me I’m not under investigation?’

In Hillary-speak it would be.
