RUSH: Now, this is getting interesting, folks. This is getting interesting. I checked the e-mail during the break. I went to our subscriber line at RushLimbaugh.com. Subject line in one e-mail: "What Are You Doing?" Subject line in another e-mail: "Do You Know What You Are Doing?" Well, now, I'm intrigued by those. Subject is what determines whether or not I open an e-mail and read it. Both of these guys, both of these people that sent me these e-mails said: "Are you aware of what you're doing here? I mean, you have Trump on some time ago and he's doing okay in the polls and he shoots up and he shoots up. Every time you have Trump on, he goes higher and higher and higher in the polls! Do you know what you're doing here?"
As though I'm involved in some sort of a plan. I'm not. I want to ask him the same questions you people have for him. You know, the compromise, working with the Democrats. He knows them. He knows a lot of them in New York. What is he gonna do when they start saying about him what they say about all of us? I don't know that he's prepared for it. I know he may say that he knows that they're gonna say those kinds of things, but 'til it actually happens to you... I mean, look at Paul Ryan! Paul Ryan?
Probably, as a kid, I doubt that Paul Ryan even got a magnifying glass out and tried to kill a bunch of ants like the rest of us did, and already Obama speaks to him in a speech and accuses him of wanting to kill senior citizens. Now, when you have the president of the United States saying that about you and then it comes back at you echoed by a media which is repeating it and then all those supporters, you may be prepared for it but you better have an answer. It's the kind of thing that you're gonna have to have an answer for.
You can say, "Oh, let's be serious. Can you be serious today? You think my policy is gonna kill people?"
"Well, that's what the president says! What do you say about that?"
They're gonna keep going 'til they get an answer on something like that. You know, it's wonderful to want to compromise with these guys, but they don't want to compromise with us. They want to beat us. As such, they have to be beaten. Especially now. (sigh) It's long past where we can hope for collegiality and all this kind of thing. These people are the architects of the destruction that's going on. If you're just joining us, Trump said he thinks that they're just incompetent. I asked him pointblank: Are they doing it on purpose or do they just not know what they're doing? He said they don't know what they're doing. So that's what he believes. And he did donate a hundred grand kicking off the hour here to our effort to cure the blood cancers.
