Rush 24/7 Morning Update: Inflicting Pain

Ladies and Gentlemen, Phil Donahue!
RUSH: Time for the audio sound bites of Phil Donahue. I promised this yesterday.
John McEnroe in Hot Water for Serena Williams Comment
RUSH: He's in the biggest excrement storm within left-wing PC circles today that you can imagine.
Is Mitch McConnell This Smart?
RUSH: The flaw is the CBO's never gonna score anything favorable for the Republicans. What if McConnell can expose that, though? What if the Trojan bill exposes that the CBO is not nonpartisan?
How Trump Plays the Media
RUSH: When you're trying to make something out of nothing, nothing is still what you have. And they don't have anything. Their primary premise, they have nothing. And yet they're totally devoted to it, the media, I mean.
A Long Shot Tech Request
RUSH: If any of you out there are running the public beta version of iOS 11, it was released yesterday. Not the developer version; developers are on beta 2. If you're running the public beta version, beta 1, iOS 11, would you please call Mr. Snerdley and tell him what the version number is?

Victor Davis Hanson Senses the Momentum Shifting
RUSH: My opening monologue featured my recollection of thoughts over the weekend about how the momentum might be shifting here. That we may be approaching that moment in time where the left has shot its wad, so to speak. They've shot everything they've got at Trump and Trump's still there and the momentum is starting to turn.
The GOP Health Care Bill Will Free 22 Million from Obamacare Prison
RUSH: The CBO score of the Senate health care bill said yesterday that 22 million people would lose their health insurance. Twenty-two million would lose their insurance. And, of course, the response to this has been predictable. This is akin to saying that a thousand prisoners who escape are now homeless. Do you think the prisoners care? They just got out of prison, they just escaped but we're gonna call 'em homeless because they're not in prison anymore.
Rush 24/7 Stack of Stuff
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.
