RUSH: Marty in Kalamazoo, Michigan, you are next. It’s nice to have you here with us.
CALLER: Hi, Rush! It’s great to talk to you. I was fortunate enough to get through and talk to you a couple of years ago, and this is just a thrill for me.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: The reason that I’m calling was I think last week you had a montage of Obama rallies where people were swooning and —
CALLER: — fainting —
RUSH: Fainting, yeah.
CALLER: — in the audience, and I listened to that, and I thought, ‘This can’t be happening. This just doesn’t happen like that,’ and I wondered how long it was going to be before somebody would faint at one of Hillary’s rallies.
RUSH: No. Don’t tell me it’s happened.
CALLER: It happened. I saw it on the news last night. I don’t remember where it was, but there she was in her yellow bumblebee suit, and somebody down there in the front row was, ‘Oh, let’s get them some water! Are they okay? Somebody’s in trouble here,’ and I thought this just cannot be real. For one thing, if these rallies are really as big as they say they are, what is the likelihood that these people are up front when they get in trouble, that the candidate would even see that there was anybody in medical trouble?
RUSH: Well, see, the closer they are, the closer they are to the electricity of the candidate —
CALLER: Oh, yeah. That must be it.
RUSH: — and the heat and they’re overcome by —
RUSH: — the close proximity of the candidate.
CALLER: Yeah, I’m sure that must be it, to just be overcome by it all. But, you know, how long did it take before Hillary was out there copycatting something that seems like it was successful for Obama? It made him look caring and compassionate and all those things that Hillary wants to seem.
RUSH: Did Hillary cry at the sight of the supporter fainting?
CALLER: No. No. I didn’t see any tears.
RUSH: She coulda set herself apart from Obama. She wasn’t thinking.
RUSH: If you’re going to copy Obama and have your audience faint, at least act upset about it more than Obama does.
RUSH: Anybody can say, ‘Get a stretcher. Get some water,’ but a couple tears or a moist eye would have gone a long way in the situation. You see how we’re talking, folks? There’s trouble out there in paradise, and we need to raise the curtain on this.
RUSH: Jeff in Springfield, Ohio, welcome to the program, sir. I have about a minute here, and I wanted to get to you, though, because you’ve been waiting awhile.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush.
CALLER: I live in Springfield, and Bill Clinton came to our local YMCA last night for a little rally.
RUSH: Clinton was at the YMCA?
CALLER: Yeah. They had 750 people in the gym.
RUSH: (laughter) Yeah, but who was in the showers?
CALLER: On the front page of our local paper, it says, ‘by one police officer’s count, four people fainted.’ So now we have Bill Clinton…
RUSH: Four people? Were they male or female?
CALLER: It doesn’t say. It just said ‘by one police officer’s count, four people fainted.’
RUSH: Four people?
CALLER: Four people —
RUSH: Four people.
CALLER: — out of 750.
RUSH: Were you there, Jeff?
CALLER: Oh, no. I was not. No. Ha ha.
RUSH: Was it cold in Springfield last night, and they might have had the heat turned up real high?
CALLER: It wasn’t too bad. It was 35, 40 degrees.
RUSH: Ah, you could have the heat up too high in there. People show up in their coats and so forth. You could get heat prostration in there. I don’t know. There’s too much fainting going on at these Democrat rallies, though. Jeez, folks. I’m telling you, it’s all falling our way. Despite our nominee, it is all falling our way.
