RUSH: For years, I have asked: Why is it that the federal government is never asked to make do with less? Finally, there’s a good chance some government agencies might actually have to! And this is going to cause a near nuclear explosion. You watch.
RUSH: It's like these guys haven't changed. I mean, they look 72. There's no mistaking that. But they still have the energy of 24-, 25-year-olds. It's just fascinating.
RUSH: None of this makes any common sense, because anti-Semitism is rampant again in Europe. And yet the Jewish people you're talking about here in America, the Jewish liberals, it doesn't seem to be a factor in them determining what side of issues they're gonna fall down on.
RUSH: Obama's not publicly saying anything. He doesn't have to. But I think Trump's exactly right.
RUSH: Is this not amazing that the Democrats are inviting refugees and illegal immigrants in an attempt to embarrass Trump? Can you believe this? You want to talk about a people out of touch? I hope Trump hears about this and has ICE agents waiting right outside the chamber door. (interruption) Yeah, you can quote me.
RUSH: We have a guy on the phone here from San Luis Obispo, California. He claims to be one of the paid activists.
RUSH: The Washington establishment — both parties, doesn't matter — can't believe Trump won. They have no desire that Trump succeed. They don't want any reforming of government in any way, shape, manner or form.
RUSH: Why is anybody surprised by any of this? Trump was as open as any politician's ever been about his agenda. Five times a day, he's making speeches at rallies, and he's telling anybody who will listen what he's gonna do.
RUSH: Where has this guy been the last 30 years? He's the official presidential historian and he thinks that just happened? He thinks there's all of a sudden a conservative media led by me, recently, that Trump glommed onto and is "tracking" and is using to win elections and build support and divide the nation?
RUSH: There is no way the Russians could have determined the outcome of voting. Trump or his people talking to the Russians during the campaign – for which there is no evidence, even if that happened — how in the world does that affect who voted, where they voted and who counted the votes? It doesn't! It's impossible.
RUSH: "A state senator, Josh Green, has introduced a bill to classify homelessness as a medical condition." This guy's a doctor.
RUSH: Did you know that last Sunday was Eating Disorder Awareness Day? Well, I didn't, either.
RUSH: I have a piece today that I found in the New Yorker. When I started reading this I said, "This is very clever. This guy's very clever." I kept reading it and kept reading it, and I said, "Wait a minute. Does this guy actually maybe believe this?"
RUSH: There's a tradition at these things and what do you bet this tradition does not survive?
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
