Donald Trump, United States, Rush Limbaugh discussed on Rush Limbaugh


You some ranchers on the southwestern United States, ranchers, Texas, and Mexico are saying they're finding prayer rugs out there. Prayer rugs near the border. That means some militant Islamists are coming across. In addition to whoever we think and there's a new caravan starting up out there. Now, I wanna I wanna go back to Pelosi for second on the state of the union thing. Because there's a there's a word that she used in her statement. She the word is security. The magic word social security food, insecurity. She said, sadly, given the security concerns. What security concerns? The house of representatives to see United States capitol. What security concerns if she referring to here. Sadly, given the security concerns, and unless government reopens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date. So we can't conduct business as usual because there are security concerns for members of congress. But when it comes to security concerns for the border for average Americans. Screw that. That's not even a legitimate subject. But we're going to shut down the state of the union because of security problems at the cat. What would those security problems be? I know it's all just a ruse. Anyway. Continuing with the audio sound bites. Moving over to CNN this morning. I look I'm convinced. I don't want. Anybody misunderstand things here. I'm convinced. I mean, why does Chuck Schumer? Money's people keep mentioning my name. Why are they running out there saying that I'm the guy running the country determining the shutdown now, I will knowledge that maybe some of them actually, believe it? I have I have always been surprised even though I've been doing this a long time. I have been surprised to learn. What these people actually believe? Sometimes I mean, they they fall for jokes that are obviously jokes to you and me like Trump asking Russia to find Hillary's emails that may have actually made some of these local weeds in the F B. I think that Trump was Russian agent. It was a joke. Muller is investigating it. They might have gotten the FIS award in part because of that line that joke. They don't understand it. They take. Literally things that people say that are satirical. And. In the John Mara parody. And I've wanted to do this on purpose of or is this just one of their techniques. To try to convince people that these jokes are what people honestly believe. So I'm asking myself, do these people really think that Trump was ready to sign the continuing resolution? Until I warned him not to do it. Do they really think that or? Are they just saying they believe it for their brain dead base because they've got focus group data that shows them whenever my name is used their base sends money. My name is a dog whistle. I think my name has become one of the premier fund raising techniques that they have they have spent all of these years. Destroying my reputation lying repeatedly about what I say. And what I think and what kind of person I am. And so within a certain segment of their base. I am Satan incarnate. People who've never listened to me people that have have never taken a time to read any of my transcripts. Don't know. A thing about me other than what is said in left wing media and left wing journalism. So it could well be that they keep throwing my name around because it keeps their base fired up with hatred. And gets their base to send in money. But then how does that explain the media continuing to blame me for this too? Well, the media is an adjunct of the democrat party and vice versa. But listen to this. This is CNN's new day today. Alison Cammarata talking to the chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin about the impact of the government shutdown. She said Jeffrey with the damage to the US economy. I mean, that's something to get Trump's attention is is that the game changer today. Jeffrey is the economic hit that we're hearing about going to cause Trump to cave and end the shutdown. I don't think so because remember who started this shutdown? What started the shutdown was Ann Coulter? And Rush Limbaugh saying we have to shut down the government or we're going to abandon the president. I don't think Rush Limbaugh and Coulter have a. Long-term perspective on what's good for the country. They're all about what's good for their viewers in their constituency, and that's who the president has geared his entire presidency towards I wish I can come to you and say, I think I see a way out of this. But I just really don't now folks I'm sitting here, and I know things that Mr. tube, and apparently doesn't and I can tell you, that's just plain stupid. What he said there is intellectually lazy and vacant in the first place. Remember who started the shutdown? What started the shutdown is an cauldron? Rush Limbaugh say now does he really believe this? I think he does I think he's this mind is this obstructed, and this clouded that he is incapable of independent thought I won't being passed off as some legal analyst brilliant guy. He's really a closed minded in curious. Obedient to left wing, agenda items, kind of person anybody in their right mind. Cannot possibly think that I started the shutdown, but they do now you might think I'm crazy for sitting here not taking credit for it. Oh, I take all the credit in the world. I'm just I'm fascinated by these people. And then I don't think Rush Limbaugh has a long term perspective on what's good for the country. Tuban? For you to say that puts you at or near the top of the list of people completely totally ignorant about who. I am and my career and what? This radio program is all about because that's what it is. Exactly all about the long term perspective on what's good for the country. And that's why I oppose you. That's why I oppose CNN. It's why I oppose the democrat party because you and they are not good. For the long term perspective for this country. You are about reordering it you're about transforming it you are about getting rid of the founding, and we have evidence today from none other than Iraq. Beto O'Rourke is out saying in the Washington Post interview. I just don't know if our founding principles serve us anymore as intricate and complex is the world has become. Mr tube. And I look at myself as doing everything I can to stop people like you precisely for the long term good of the country. Isn't it Bob my constituent constituency, I'm an audience. I don't have political power. I'm not involved in that. Probably more of an open minded journalists type than you will ever be. This is just. Mind boggling to me. How anybody you? You cannot have listen to this program. And and think or say what Toobin said now, I understand their objective is to poison minds of people about me. And all this. I understand all that. But I mean, this is just. It's embarrassingly ridiculous to claim. That I and you by the way, don't forget all this criticism of me and all this criticism that Trump is literally criticism of you for listening and for voting. That's what they really hate. When you get down to really really despise Trump wouldn't be there. If it weren't for you. They can get rid of Trump. If it weren't for you. They can get rid of me if it weren't for you. That's who they really hate. The fact that they can't control you that they can't influence you that they can't indoctrinate you that they cannot somehow propagandize you in devoting it supporting what they wanna do which is nothing. About the long-term perspective on what's good for the country. These people win the long term good of the country becomes entirely differently defined. And it's not what's good for the country. What's good for them? And so the president has geared his entire presidency towards. My listeners and his no president make America great again. What is so hard to understand about that? No more complicated making America. Great again. I saw something. I wonder if I printed this out. I think I did it is some some guy wasn't even intending to make a point about the president was talking about China trade relations since the year two thousand. And this guy is chronicling. How only recently has the United States changed dramatically. It's posture and status. In trade relations with China for the benefit of the United States doesn't even mention Trump in this guy, not even talking about presidential politics. Guy was lamenting how we were always in the short end of the stick in dealing with Chinese in matters of trade and only recently has had begun to change with the guy was oblivious as to why he was just he was chronicling historical changes, but not mentioning personalities in. It is exactly what Trump is all about. But they don't understand making America. Great again because they think America is flawed. They think America is immoral unjust. It does not have the moral authority to be the solution to the world's problems because we've caused so many of them. They don't understand American exceptionalism, and they continue to attack the premise of American exceptionalism and the claim that people advocate for it are themselves, racists and bigots. But the overall level of stupidity. Ignorance here is just striking among people who think. That they're smarter than anybody else in the world. I got another couple of soundbites coming out of the break from C span. Some clown calls and starts telling them that. I am the reason for the shutdown in the C span host demands. To know why this caller thinks this and we'll hear that when we get back. Rush.
