RUSH: Here’s Nancy, southeastern Massachusetts. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
RUSH: Hi. How are you?
CALLER: Good. When you were talking about why Obama was going back to Washington, I was curious myself.
RUSH: Right, right.
CALLER: Like some people think he’s gonna sign an executive order. He could have did it, you know, in Martha’s Vineyard if he wanted to. But I was watching that press conference. They read off his agenda, and they said that Sasha came with him when they originally came to Martha’s Vineyard, the younger… No, Malia came with him, the older daughter.
CALLER: Malia will be going back with him when he leaves on Sunday and then he’s gonna bring back Sasha when they come back. So I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.
RUSH: Well, now, why —
CALLER: The cost is phenomenal.
RUSH: I know, it’s over like a million point two or something like that. But why would he have to go back to get the daughter? Why couldn’t Biden bring her or put her on a plane?
CALLER: It’s ridiculous.
RUSH: When he goes back —
CALLER: Absolutely ridiculous.
RUSH: When he goes back, that’s Air Force One.
RUSH: So that’s…
RUSH: I think Biden’s not there ’cause I don’t think anybody on Martha’s Vineyard wants him there, and that’s why Obama has to go back. He’s gotta meet with Biden about something. But that’s —
CALLER: I thought it was odd when they questioned, you know, why only one daughter went.
CALLER: It was like no information available for why they didn’t come as a family.
RUSH: Well, that’s understandable. These daughters are old enough now that they got other things going on. I mean, these daughters, do you think Martha’s Vineyard’s really all that exciting to them?
CALLER: No. I’ve never been there. (laughing) I live in Massachusetts and I’ve never been there.
RUSH: I mean, as far as the daughters are concerned, it’s already the old folks’ home.
RUSH: Martha’s Vineyard, I don’t think there’s anybody there under 60, other than the employees at places.
CALLER: Probably true.
RUSH: Or if they Kennedys got lost and ended up there instead of Hyannis, but other than that, it’s just not gonna happen. (interruption) No, that was a different… (interruption) Oh, wait. It might have been Martha’s Vineyard where Michelle and the daughters went early with their own plane, retinue, or they… (sigh) I don’t know, isn’t she old enough to fly? Couldn’t they put her on a plane? That’s weird to go back for that. I don’t know. I don’t know.
I’m sorry that doesn’t make any sense to me, but then I’m not a parent. (sigh)
Send the grandmother back! We’ll just have to wait and find out. (interruption) What’s wrong with that? Send a family member back to pick up if there’s a daughter that hasn’t been able to make the trip yet. (interruption) What did I step in by saying that? What did I step in by saying send the grandmother back? (interruption) Well, how’s that different saying the president’s gonna go get her? She’s a family member. (interruption) Honestly, are we actually concerned about this?
