Tony and Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, they understand what’s going on in the
real world, and I think that’s going to be very helpful for the White House

be good for the American people, too, to have one of their advocates
clearly in the White House who’s on the pulse of the people in the real
In case you thought that the problem with the White House was that they needed a dose of the Hannity/Limbaugh understanding of the real world, Tony’s the man.
