RUSH: Let’s go to Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey, on the phones. Start with Mike. Great to have you on the program today, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hello. I wanted to know your opinion. Did you happen to hear that Barack Obama’s uncle was arrested for DWI?
RUSH: Yeah. This is Omar Onyango Obama, with a Social Security number, illegal immigrant for 19 years. Yes, I heard this.
CALLER: Yeah. Now, how come it seems like — remember under Bush, his daughters, whenever they caught like drinking, it made headlines.
CALLER: And yet there seems to be like a complete blackout in the newspapers, and even on the news, there seems to be a blackout of this.
RUSH: Well, it’s not a total blackout because you knew about it.
CALLER: Yeah, but I mean I’m talking about, you know, I’ve been scouring papers, stuff, I can’t find nothing about that. I just thought it was odd.
RUSH: Well, you know, Obama still has brother living in a hut in Kenya.
CALLER: You know, but I mean this guy’s an illegal alien. I mean, you know, come on.
CALLER: Shouldn’t he be deported?
RUSH: Wait a second. This guy’s not the first. Don’t forget Aunt Zeituni.
CALLER: I remember her, but I’m just saying, how many other people are here illegally?
RUSH: Let me tell you what’s more interesting to me. I mean I get your point. Here’s a guy, illegal immigrant for 19 years, has a Social Security number, Omar Obama, DWI. My question is, you’re right, this is the first time we’ve ever heard of this guy. This guy, Aunt Zeituni, they’re never invited to the White House. You get rappers showing up at the White House, you’ve got all kinds of Hollywood people, you’ve got any number of people, but the family, the family is ignored. Aunt Zeituni was almost deported. I don’t know what’s gonna happen here to Uncle Omar.
CALLER: Yeah, I mean, you know, I’m just wondering. I mean I just find it kinda, you know, odd that that we’re not hearing nothing about it.
RUSH: You have a point. This is August 30th. Uncle Omar was arrested on August 26th. And today I think is the first — I mean nothing in the American press about it until today.
CALLER: Yeah. Well, I just was wondering. But I thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: What were you wondering?
CALLER: I mean, you know, I’m not like a conspiracy kind of person but I mean, you know, it’s very odd that there’s such a blackout. If this has happened to —
RUSH: Be careful with your language here, sir, blackout, you gotta be very careful the way you’re —
CALLER: I didn’t mean it that way —
RUSH: Well, I know, but you never know how it’s gonna be interpreted.
CALLER: Yeah. Well, my point is, you know, had this been any one of the front-runners —
RUSH: All I can tell you is —
CALLER: — we would never hear the end of it.
RUSH: That’s exactly right. Uncle Omar and Aunt Zeituni are in Massachusetts. Wasn’t the family just there?
RUSH: I don’t even know if Hillary’s wife would let her run, folks, so that’s kind of a moot point. But you know, this Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar, they’re both in violation of the law. They have been deported. Both have been deported and just refuse to leave. And when Uncle Omar was arrested, he wanted to call the White House, just like when they run out of McNuggets in Port St. Lucie, called 911.
