Rush Limbaugh offered a piece of counterintuitive advice to Donald Trump on his radio program Tuesday: “Go to California, Mr. President.”
“I made a brilliant observation yesterday about the Democrats in California,” said Limbaugh (transcript via RushLimbaugh.com). “Democrats in LA are appalled that homelessness in their city is rising and so much of it, and they’re mad that the Democrat candidates for president are not talking about it. And I told the people of LA (and I’ll do it again today), ‘The Democrats are not gonna talk about your problems. They already own you! They don’t need to fix a damn thing in California.'”
Democrats know every election cycle that they will get all of California’s electoral votes and the dominance of the Democratic Party in the state means that Republicans effectively “don’t exist” on the Left Coast.
“Democrat candidates for president have got nothing to gain by going to California and pointing out what’s happening there,” said Rush. “They’ve got nothing but anything to lose by doing that. If they go to California and start complaining, you can’t blame Republicans for it because the Republicans have nothing to do with what life is like in California now. That’s totally owned by the Democrats.”
