RUSH: You know, you’ve got Trump out there saying that Mexico is sending the worst people they have to immigrate to the United States. They’re sending criminals. Rapists. Purse snatchers. Muggers. Drug addicts. And, of course, the Drive-By media is literally beside itself. In fact, I want to go back and grab a sound bite from earlier in the program. I want you to grab number five. This is Trump. He was on CNN talking to Don Lemon. And Don Lemon said to Trump, “Why did you have to say the Mexicans were rapists, Donald?”

DONALD: I didn’t say it about Mexicans. I said the illegal immigrants. You look at the statistics on rape, on crime, on everything coming in illegally into this country; they’re mind-boggling. If you go to Fusion, you’ll see a story about 80% of the women coming in. I mean, you have to take a look at these stories. And you know who owns Fusion? Univision!

LEMON: I read the Washington Post. I read the Fusion. I read the Huffington Post. And that’s about women being raped. It’s not about criminals coming across the border or entering the country.

DONALD: Well, somebody’s doing the raping, Don. You know, I mean, somebody is doing it. You saying it’s women being raped. Well, who is doing the raping? Who’s doing the raping?

RUSH: It seems a natural question. I mean, Lemon says (imitating Lemon), “Hey, I’ve read those stories. I’m seeing all the stories about women being raped. Why did you have to say it’s the Mexicans?” Well, Don, who is doing the raping? The stories are about female immigrants coming to the country and being raped and assaulted and so forth during the trek. And this is the way the liberals look at this stuff. Okay, there’s women being raped over here, and as far as they’re concerned, it must be happening at college campuses because that is what they read on the Huffington Post.

Do you realize how many — by the way, I had somebody yesterday who made a point that Millennials swear by the New York Times and some of these other really fringe, untrustworthy, obviously bigoted, biased news organizations. And I had some people email me, “How do you know? Why do you think that’s the case?” I’ll tell you how I know it. The people I’m talking about, the 18 to 34-year-olds do not watch television news, folks. They get everything on their devices. They watch television on their devices. They watch video on their devices.

They want to watch HBO, Showtime, whatever it is on their devices. They get their news on devices. And most of them get their news from Facebook, Twitter, which is simply somebody reads the New York Times in the morning and repeats and posts what’s in the New York Times and that’s how it happens. Or they subscribe to news aggregator sites. Sites like Flipboard. There are any number of these things. I’m running a beta right now of iOS 9, the next software coming up for the iPhone and the iPad. And there’s a new feature. Apple is attempting to come up with their own version of Google Now. And I’m not going to go into great detail about what it does.

But one of the new things is you have your home page; it used to be that if you dragged the home page right, you would get a brand-new page, and that was the search page. That is now missing. In iOS 8, the way you get the search is you drag down from any home page. Well, they’ve reestablished the search page left of the number one home screen or home page, and that is where your frequent contacts are. It’s where they’re going to attempt to find out what you do before you do it.

The bottom half of that is the latest news, without — and I know it’s beta. Without fail… Without fail, every day, all day, it’s either the Huffing and Puffington Post or the New York Times. There’s three different sources in there, three different news stories. And two of them are always the New York Times or Huffing and Puffington Post. Others are Yahoo. Some are USA Today. But nothing that you read is what we would read.

No Breitbart. No Fox News. No… take your pick of what you would read on the Web. Well, it’s the same thing with all these young people. At the places they go to get news, the New York Times is the lead newspaper that all of these websites offer. So the Millennials are not going to the New York Times website, per se. Some of them probably are. But the apps and the various sorts of places that they get news supply what the New York Times does, and then the Huffing and Puffington Post is number two.

The Huffing and Puffington Post, by the way, is the equivalent of Air America succeeding, which it didn’t. That’s how oddball, off-the-charts extreme it is. But to a lot of people, it’s mainstream. So that’s what I mean in answer to the snarky questions. “How do you know they’re reading the…?” I know because I look at what they look at. They don’t have to be told that the New York Times is the world’s greatest newspaper. They didn’t grow up hearing that. It’s just the places they go to get news, that’s what’s there.

Any number of these news aggregator sites.

That’s why I suggested when I found out Apple was going to do this, that they hire Drudge. Apple thinks different. They do different things. The Drudge page is everything. There’s New York Times stuff on the Drudge page. But other things that nobody cares to link to. Anyway, I don’t need to spend more time on that. I’m just answering your question of how this all happens. They’re not reading the newspaper. They don’t go to Starbucks with the actual newspaper.

They go with their Phones and their Pads.

I mean, I guess some of them use Samsung. Whatever. They click on their social media apps, and right there it is: What’s the latest in the New York Times, and then what happened on The Daily Show, and then the Huffing and Puffington Post. Anyway, here’s Trump. And he’s out there and he’s telling Don Lemon, “Don, who is doing the raping? I mean, if you got all these women being raped, somebody is raping them? Who are the rapists?” And Lemon doesn’t go that far.

As far as he’s concerned, he’s seen the stories on women being raped, and that’s all he needs to know. “Women being raped” equals “America is bad.” “Women being raped” equals “women are discriminated against in America.” As far as he’s concerned, he probably thinks it’s happening on campus because the news sources that he believes reports that there’s a “rape crisis” on campus, when there isn’t. So he was totally befuddled by Trump’s question. “Well, Don, who is doing the raping?”

Well, now, add to this mix Obama. Obama has now weighed in at a town hall in Madison, Tennessee, yesterday. “President Obama referred to some illegal immigrants as ‘gang-bangers,‘ adding further that those criminal migrants should be deported ‘as quickly as possible.'” Well, now, will Macy’s start boycotting Obama? Will NBC refuse to cover anymore Obama public appearances? He just called illegal immigrants gang-bangers! What is a gang-banger? Well, it’s not good.

Obama said, “What we should be doing is setting up a smart, legal immigration system that doesn’t separate…” It’s the Limbaugh Theorem again. “What we should be doing”? You’ve been president and you’re in almost your eighth year here, bud. What do you mean, “What we should be doing”? He’s still acting like he hasn’t been elected yet, or acting like he hasn’t been inaugurated yet. So as far as Obama is concerned, immigration is a mess, because somebody made it a mess.

And he’s out there campaigning on what needs to happen in order to fix it. It’s the mess that it is because of him and the Democrat Party. Yeah, Obama says, “What we should be doing is setting up a smart, legal immigration system that doesn’t separate families, but does focus on making sure that people who are dangerous, people who are gang-bangers or criminals — that we’re deporting them as quickly as possible…” Now, Obama didn’t call them rapists and criminals like Trump did. But “gang-bangers” and “criminals” and “deport”?

So will Serta refuse to sell Obama a mattress now? Will NBC refuse to cover Obama? Obama is behaving here like an out-of-control bigot with these comments, is he not? Macy’s? I wonder if Macy’s would welcome Mrs. Obama on a shopping spree. See, the difference is Obama is a nice guy and Trump is mean. Yes. Obama is nice and Trump is mean and that’s the difference. Now, we know that Obama’s administration has been freeing criminal illegal aliens from detention as quickly as possible.

I mean, we’re talking about six figures, the number of imprisoned illegals that Obama has turned loose! And one of the… In fact, I had a story yesterday (I didn’t get to it) that it was making Hillary Clinton happy because she’s got this big policy idea of allowing felons to vote. Anyway, “Trump Declares Victory on Immigration as Obama Admits Some Illegals Are ‘Gang-Bangers.'” That’s the point here. Trump has… I don’t know what he’s doing. He’s out there calling them gang-bangers. He’s essentially echoing Trump. Is that reported that way in the Drive-Bys?
