(National Sentinel)Â Executive Branch: It’s no secret that Donald J. Trump is the ultimate WashingtonÂ outsider, but conservative talk giant Rush Limbaugh thinks the president’s teamÂ still doesn’t fully understand who their opponentsÂ really are.
On Tuesday following the Republican-led Senate’s abysmal failure to do what the majority promised regarding Obamacare — repeal and replace it — Limbaugh lit into Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s and other GOP leaders’ failure to move the legislation, saying itsÂ further proof of â€œthe establishment unifying to get rid of Donald Trump,” theÂ WashingtonÂ TimesÂ reported.
He then went on to observe that the president’s team is misidentifying theÂ real opposition to their agenda in D.C.
â€œThe fight is not Republican versus Democrat,â€ Limbaugh said. â€œThe fight is Donald Trump and his cadre and you, the Trump base, versus the Washington establishment. It has always been that and nothing more. And, frankly, I think one of the problems has been that there arenâ€™t enough people in the Trump White House who understand that thatâ€™s the way the tableâ€™s set.â€
And Trump will continue to face this opposition, the host added,Â because Washington â€œis built around the existence of this establishment.â€
â€œThis is the elite membership of the establishment unifying to get rid of Donald Trump and make sure that nothing of his announced agenda happens,â€ he continued. â€œNo wall, no tax reform, no immigration reform of substance, and certainly no repealing of Obamacare. Not all members of the establishment are equally powerful. There are those who run it. You donâ€™t know who they are. They donâ€™t seek office. Theyâ€™re not office holders. They are the chess players, the puppeteers.
â€œThese are the people who assign roles,â€ he noted further. â€œThese are the people who determine how much money from the pile goes where, how much they get [â€¦] who gets it and therefore who remains loyal to the power and the elite club known as the establishment. Theyâ€™re all aligned and unified now to deny Donald Trump and, if they can, to sabotage his presidency. They donâ€™t care about impeachment â€” just paralyze him. This has been from day one.â€
After the Senate’s failure to move legislation, Trump tweeted that inaction has “let down” Americans. But he still remained optimistic:
We were let down by all of the Democrats and a few Republicans. Most Republicans were loyal, terrific & worked really hard. We will return!
