Skip to comments.Donald Trump on Rush show next hour
Posted on 03/01/2011 9:17:33 AM PST by Will88
Rush just announced that he'd had so much response to his remarks concerning Trump last week that The Donald would be on today in the second hour to answer questions.
I love ya Rush... but I will not listen to your golf buddy... he is just another crook.
That sure means there’s no hurry to get in the car and turn on the radio this morning. Trump’s an even bigger non-starter for the presidency than Guiliani was.
with everything going on out there today do ya think Rush could leave the Haney Project stuff till the end of hour 3?
Rush WTF are you doing with that drop-my-pants-hey-look-at-me maroon? I thought Rush didn’t do an interview show? So who is next Pat Paulsen?
Oh goody. Trump is always fun to listen to. The guy cracks me up.
Agreed. I’ve been playing golf for almost 30 years. I love the game, but it’s not the reason I listen to him or talk radio, in general.
So, what were 'his remarks'???
The Haney Project is zero interest to me, not being a golfer. I guess Rush wanted to make the point that he’s a good listener with that anecdote today.
But I am interested in hearing Trump because he is about the only one who’ll talk bluntly about our one-sided trade relationship with China and related matters. Somebody needs to shake-up the Republican campaign discussions because the probably candidates are definitely playing it safe with (avoiding) some of the more controversial issues.
Last week Rush talked about Trump for a while and many listeners accused him of going soft on Trump, or that Trump was a buddy of Rush, or whatever, Rush caught a lot of flack via email for his remarks.
I don't recall much of what Rush said, but many listeners thought he was too easy on Trump. So Trump is coming on to clarify his positions on some issues, etc.
Yep, and I'd like to see Trump crack up, or crack open some of the controversial subjects that most candidates prefer to avoid: our one-sided trade with China, and illegal immigration and amnesty, etc.
I don't know if Trump will get in the Republican primary race, but I hope he does just to shake things up and see how much support his ideas would win over.
Pat Paulsen died from cancer, on April 24, 1997. His son, Monty Paulsen, IS running for ‘12 POTUS, “carrying the torch of his father, so to speak”, according to www.paulsen.com/pat
It would be helpful if Rush would play the phone call he got last week that started the whole “Trump” thing .
The guy is a slimeball, but he has some good ideas that need to be brought to the table. I hope he gets in the race and stays relevant for long enough to have an impact, but eventually loses.
So who is next Pat Paulsen?
I think he’s dead. Maybe as dead as that thing on Trump’s head he calls “hair”.
For now, I like what I hear, and from that epic motion picture, Starship Troopers, “You're it, until you're dead or I find someone better”
Trump keeps saying he’s a conservative Republican.
So why did ‘Republican’ Donald Trump Donate $50K to Democrat uber-liberal Rahm Emanuel’s mayoral campaign?
I'm sure he will. I love his whole Don Corleone bit--we're not respected.
Lately Trump has been saying that the Obama administration is incompetent, and I do enjoy hearing that.
I just caught part of his remarks on Trump last week, so I can't explain everything that led to this. But I know he discussed Trump for a while and some listeners thought Rush failed to point out some of Trumps liberal ideas, or campaign contributions to libs, etc. Rush caught a lot of email flack so he asked Trump to come on and explain some of his views and past contributions to candidates.
Sorry Frog, you are doomed to belong to a political party in which the leading philosophers are former disc jockeys. You be sure and call me, won't you, when some liberal person of your acquaintance says, "Gee Frog, I listened to Rush today, and now I am going to vote Conservative."
Rush is a master broadcaster. Probably the finest ever. But way back in the Jurassic 50's, we had our favorite disc jockeys, too, and we already knew the words to every song they were going to play. The choir already knows the hymns, but that does not diminish their pleasure in singing them.
For example, Rush is anti-illegal immigration now. But when it would really have been of help, he parroted the US Chamber of Commerce line, that it was, ".... The sign of a healthy economy..." and not to worry about it!
Oh BTW, call me when Rush does a show on "Constitutional Eligibility." Rush's job is to sell stuff on the radio to his niche audience, which he does very well. However, 4 million of them who voted for GW, were not to be inspired to get off their duffs and vote in the elections of 2008.
If we have plausible candidates openly discussing our one-sided trade with China, and illegal immigration and the perpetual amnesty campaign, then I don't know who those candidates are.
So will Rush ask him about giving aid and comfort to Gadhaffi when he let him pitch his tent on his property?
Thanks for the heads up...I’ll go for a swim..Trump is an ass...the folks at CPAC were insane to give him that forum...anyone think that Trump could survive the vetting...
A guy called in complaining about Trump’s cpac speech and pointed out all the money he gives to dems and the fact several years ago he claimed to be a dem . Rush was rather soft on Trump and told the caller he would see if Trump would come on the show . Should be interesting :-)
Bingo! people on this forum to quick to attack our own... Trump tells it like it is...and I respect him for it.
Duncan Hunter was a fine candidate who spoke about those subjects and more.
The question would be: how much is there about Trump that isn't already known? He's been such a public figure for years - a celebrity businessman - that he's probably already been pretty thoroughly vetted.
True, but now we're discussing the primary campaigns for 2012. I'm not hearing it from any of the prospective Republicans for the coming primaries - except for Trump's possible candidacy.
Answer questions about what? His bad toupee? His donations to Democrat candidates? He reality TV show? Trump is a loudmouthed assclown.
Went easy? He defended Trump's donations to libtard, commie democrats and damned if he ain't piling on with more defense of that crap this week. Trump even admitted to a close relationship with Rohm Emanuel and his brother and Rush's response was 'you're loyal to your friends'. I think I'm gonna puke....
Trump is a scum bag but I'm very ashamed of Rush at this point.
just listened to Trump on Rush. Trump filibustered the whole interview. He was saying the same stuff. I am great, I build great buildings, I am great. China is laughing at us. Same old stuff. I think Rush got 2 questions in and Trump just kept talking. Can’t believe Rush let him away with that....
Trump is not running. He is just looking for attention.
Could be a masterful plug job, But he's got this like baby-fine blonde hair that he insists on wearing in that ridiculous comb-over wave. Frankly, I am jealous.
Other than that hair, the guy is a total sleazoid whore-hound SOB who would sell his mother to an Arab, deliver, and offer post-sale service. As far as making those millions goes, no one is at all sure if he's added to the millions his father thoughtfully left him, or lost ground.
*Excuse me, but this being a family site, I felt a little cheesy just saying "fart." Apropos de Trump, "cheesy," c'est le mot juste.
Trump is definitely a self-promoter, but he made a remark about how the U.S. economy cannot perform well when oil is over $40 a barrel. I agree with that, cheap energy is the economic linchpin of America’s economy, when politicians strut around talking about “green” (expensive)energy, that’s just a nice way of saying that they want no economic growth.
Because 'the Donald' has a HUGH Hi-Rise in Chicago, on Wabash Ave, 1 block west of Michigan Avenue aka: 'The Mag Mile', and Mayor Rahm's City Building Inspectors could make like miserable for him.
Even though 'Trump Tower' is completed there's still City Elevator Inspectors, Health Dept Inspectors for any Commercial Kitchens, Garbage Disposal, Stairway Access, Parking, etc, etc, etc. And Chicago Bldg Inspectors are NOT the sharpest of people (surprise) and even getting a bogus violation notice straightened out is a pain in the ___.
So his donation is like taking Preemptive Action ;-)
All big Companies & Corps that do business in Chicago donate to the RATS, including 'right wing' Republicans. It's the 'cost of doing business' (legal graft).
I also agree with that, but the crude price the US economy absorbs without disruption might now be closer to $60 per barrel. But there definitely is that level where energy costs begin to significantly increase the cost of practically every good and most services in the US.
It's insane that this country has failed to develop its own abundant energy resources since the Arab embargoes of the 1970s. And the blame goes to both parties, perhaps more to the Dims, but GHWB put more offshore areas under moratoriums than any other president, and Slick and W just continued his policies (until the final two years of W's terms). And the Dims have shot down several attempts to open ANWR and other areas of Alaska.
Did you catch the woman caller that ranted about Trump to Rush? Rush said, “I can’t disagree with you”. She laid in on the line and said that Trump was in bed with the emanual brothers and that he had no loyalty to anything but himself... Rush praised Trump’s business experience and economic knowledge... but he agreed with every rant this woman had about Trump. I would not vote at all, if my only choice were Trump.
I do also... but Trump is as bad as any rat... totally loyal to only himself and as corrupt as any chi town thug.
OK-—now I know.
Yep, Trump is definitely the first public figure I’ve heard say how the Chinese violate patents and copyrights, how they copy and counterfeit products, and how Boeing is giving away a chunk of their future business by partnering with the Chinese on any aspect of aircraft production.
I doubt most Americans know how the Chinese steal and cheat in commerce, and they need to hear it. No politician has the guts to say those things. I hope Trump gets in and turns up the volume.
You are absolutely, completely right. As soon as I saw this thread yesterday morning I thought to myself: Wait for everyone on this thread to go silent, because he’s going to say things which are obviously true - and they will be unable to rebut anything he’s saying.
Which is exactly what happened. As soon as Rush broadcast the interview - FR went black on Trump. Total silence.
Didn’t have a chance to post during the interview, but Trump was ON FIRE!! So right on, he reminded me of Duncan Hunter - except with an understanding of international business.
In fact IMHO Trump is to US business, as Duncan Hunter is to US defense. Except with more charisma. Which is how people get elected...............
He so gets it. And the people who whine about him so don’t get it. He’s right about all of it.
Our industry. Unfair trade practices. All of it.
Trump is a far more substantial individual than those who mock him without listening to what he’s saying, even grasp.
Yeah and He Loves Rahm Emmanuel and His Brothers SOOOOOO Much.
Did you listen to the interview?
Did you listen to Rush? Does your knee jerking that way, distract your concentration?
I listened and I dont Disagree with what he said about China,its that people like Trump Care about the Business and all that is fine But they sell their souls when they Deal with People Like Ezekiel Emmauel and His Brothers. Its Not a Knee jerk reaction its a Reaction that other people dont have Because all they look at is the BUCK,look at Wisconsin. I agree more with the Woman that called Later ,you can have all the Money you want but when someone is in Charge that tells you your a Piece of Meat and not economically feasible so you get eleiminated that is Evil,read the Complete Lives System,that is what these people advocate and if that is what you condone then fine But I wont vote for it
A very belated "thanks" for the clarification.
