Limbaugh: Here's Why Trump Should Start Going To California

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."

It's "the age-old adage," he said. "They cannot be hurt by ignoring California. They can only be harmed by calling attention to it." With that in mind, said Limbaugh, he's been thinking about a new strategy for Trump: "start going to California."


"I think he ought to go there once a month," he explained. "I think the Republican National Committee ought to schedule a debate in California. I think the campaign should have ads showing and highlighting the homelessness in downtown Los Angeles and pointing out that this is what happens when Democrats run things with no opposition, no checks, no balances."

Meanwhile, the Democrats "have to ignore California," just like they ignore the African-American community other than to occasionally "blame Republican racism" for any problems.

"Put simply and succinctly, the left is desperate to stop Donald Trump because he’s doing what they can never do," said Rush. "Donald Trump is doing what the left can never do. They can’t politically do it, and they couldn’t do it if they wanted to do it! They simply do not know how to raise economic circumstances for people. Not across the board. They can do it individually. They have their own share of the wealth, but they don’t believe in policies that make this happen. Government’s first, second, third, and last in their lives. Donald Trump shows the Democrat Party up every day. He puts them to shame every day on issues of substance that matter in people’s lives."

The homeless crisis in California has frequently been in the news as of late, with spikes in homelessness impacting key cities, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, and escalating to the point that California lawmakers are considering increasingly desperate measures to try to address the issue, including requiring all counties and each major city in the state to provide "safe parking lots" for those who live out of their vehicles.

"Establishing a safe parking program in California’s most populated cities and having at least one in each county will provide a safe place for vehicle dwelling," the author of Assembly Bill 891 told CBS Sacramento this week. "These programs can be overseen and controlled by local entities, they will result in these vehicles being moved away from nightly street parking and into designated lots, and create a sense of normalcy for individuals who are living out of their vehicles. The goal of this measure is to help transition these individuals into more stable and permanent housing.”

He makes a good point. Can't imagine what the security would cost though sending him into hostile territory.

1. It's not that hostile, only in the large suburban areas.

After the 2016 nomination Trump didn't even bother with California are wrote it off, choosing to spend more time in swing states.

Since he'll have more campaign funds and a proven track record as well as how dysfunctional Sacramental is I think he could win CA if he set his mind to it. Would be fun the watch the liberal head explodies if he did.

The biggest issue against him is the amount of Democrat vote harvesting in SoCal we saw in 2018.

2. Excellent. Rush is right. And Trump is now more popular with Blacks and Latinos than he was in 2016

so a monthly visit to Calistupid could only do good; unless, of course, the Dems hired some terrorist to take Trump out. And we are getting closer to something like that happening.

13. Reagan was a moderate the difference is he loved America

Wilson and Schwarzenegger? lol not even close to being right of center. Arnold is spewing that "glowbull warming crap". They did give you a job and once you were given it you earned money but if you want to be pedantic no poor person had the ability to give me a chance to earn a good days pay.

9. Remember California has lots of red areas

And California has a lot of democrats that to one degree or another do not support illegal aliens. Not hard to imagine why when they have watched for years the negative effects it causes. Now look at San Francisco and Los Angeles. They look like third world shit holes and there's no escaping who's been in charge in these cities and in Sacramento. I have always been of the opinion that California is as solidly red as is advertised. I've always been of the opinion California is more like a Chameleon who can easily change colors when needed.

I think Rush Limbaugh is correct.... I think its more likely California would not vote for Trump but its enough of a possibility for Trump to consider what Rush is saying is correct.

Would all those states who tried to tank the Electoral College change their laws again if Trump won California.

19. However Trump wasnt even being thought of as a candidate

When the first states adopted the national popular vote compact:
Maryland: signed in law in 2007
New Jersey: 2008
Illinois: 2008
Hawaii: 2008
Washington: 2009
Massachusetts: 2010
District of Columbia: 2010
Vermont: 2011
California: 2011
Rhode Island: 2013
New York: 2014
Since Trump was elected Connecticut, Colorado, Delaware, New Mexico and Oregon have passed laws to use the national popular vote to determine the winner of the electoral vote in these states.
