RUSH: This is mildly funny. Mrs. Clinton, the gaffe presenting a gift to the Russians today. She’s over there in Brussels, and she gave the Russian foreign minister a red button that was supposed to read ‘reset’ in Russian. They wanted to ‘reset’ our relations, so they gave them a red button. When I first saw this, I said, ‘My gosh! The red button is what you launch the nukes with. They were scared of Reagan. Here’s Hillary giving the Russians a red button to launch nukes!’ No. It’s a red button that was supposed to read ‘reset’ in Russian, but they got the word wrong. They didn’t translate it right. Here’s how it sounded.
(camera shutters clicking)
HILLARY (pedantically): I wanted to present you, represents what President Obama and Vice President Biden and I have been saying, and that is, we…want…to…’reset’…our…relationship. (camera shutters clicking) So we’ll do it together. (witch cackle)
LAVROV: Thank you very much. (camera shutters clicking)
HILLARY: You’re very welcome! We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?
LAVROV: You got it wrong.
HILLARY: I’ve gotten it wrong? (laughter)
LAVROV: It should be ‘perezagruzka.’
LAVROV: And this is says ‘peregruzka,’ means ‘overcharge.’
HILLARY: (witch cackle) Well, won’t let you do that to us, I promise! Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuh!
LAVROV: Okay. Thank you very much. (camera shutters clicking)
HILLARY: Thank you so much.
LAVROV: It’s very kind of you. It will be on my desk.
RUSH: Damn shutters! There are too many cameras in there. Were you able to hear what they said? Okay, what happened was Hillary goes in there and says, ‘We want to reset our relationship so we’ll do it together.’ She laughs that nervous cackle.
Lavrov says, ‘Thank you very much.’
Hillary says, ‘You’re very welcome. We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?’
Lavrov says, ‘You got it wrong.’
Hillary said, ‘I got it wrong?’
And Lavrov said, ‘It should be perezagruzka.’
And Hillary goes, ‘Ahhhhh!’
And Lavrov said, ‘Your sign say ‘peregruzka,’ which means ‘overcharge.”
And Hillary with the witch cackle, ‘Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Well, we won’t let you do that to us. I promise.’
Lavrov says, ‘Okay, thank you very much.’
Hillary: ‘Thank you so much.’
Lavrov says, ‘It will be on my desk.’
They gave the red button that meant to say ‘reset,’ and it said ‘overcharge.’ (chuckles) You know those 25 DVDs that the president gave the Prime Minister of the UK, Gordon Brown? I wonder if you meant to make those Region 2 DVDs, and I wonder what those 25 are. What do you think Michelle and Barack Obama’s favorite 25 American movies are? (interruption) Don’t say it. This is a think piece. (interruption) Well, no, these are movies, not sermons from Reverend Wright. These are Hollywood movies. I’m just saying: What would be the top 25 as chosen by Michelle (My Belle) Obama and President Barack Obama? This is a think piece. I want you to go out there and give me any ideas.
