RUSH: Okay, so you know how ridiculous this is getting — it just confirms everything I told you yesterday. This is just boring as it can be, it’s same old, same old. I finally figured out why this Hillary stuff — I mean, who wants to go back and relive that stuff all over again?
To show you how bad it is, Mark Halperin is actually trying to tell people that a great example of the newness, the newness of Hillary Clinton is she had a burrito at Chipotle. Yeah. And nobody had ever seen her eat a burrito before. And The Politico, same thing. Hillary Clinton just an unrecognized burrito bowl fan. So Hillary Clinton’s new and hip and is not an old retread because she had a burrito and nobody’d ever seen her eat a burrito before. I don’t know, folks, it’s gonna be a long campaign. I can just tell you that right now.
RUSH: We need to get that security tape in there and look for one more thing. You know, Chipotle is a favorite of young Millennials. As for the leftists, I don’t know if it leans one way or the other, but it’s a cafeteria-style place. I know you love it because when I first pronounced it Chipotle, you screamed at me. I didn’t know it was Chipotle. I’d never heard it pronounced and when I don’t know how something’s pronounced, I look at the way the word is written and take everything I know about the English language and give it my best guess.
I didn’t see any accent mark over the E, I didn’t think it was French, so I pronounced it Chipotle. And Dawn started screaming, “Chipotle! Chipotle!” Okay, Chipotle. So I’ve since learned a little bit about the place. There are no waiters or waitresses. You walk in there, you walk through the line, sort of like a cafeteria, you pick what you want, and, as such, there’s a tip jar. Right? (interruption) There’s a tip jar in there. And I would be interested to learn if Mrs. Clinton put anything in it. I mean, she’s out there representing the little guy. She’s out there campaigning against the rich.
Oh, speaking of that, the latest data from the Tax Foundation, we finally reached that point where half, one half of all tax revenue is paid by the top 1%. The bottom 80% pay something like 15% of the total tax burden. The top 1% are paying 50% now, and it is climbing. It has been climbing ever since this data has been kept.
Mrs. Clinton is in the 1%. Chipotle has a tip jar and we know that there are cameras in there, because we got the picture of Mrs. Clinton — who goes in there in dark glasses, wearing a pooh-pooh — no, muumuu. Wearing your muumuu, you go in there with Huma. You’re wearing your muumuu, you got your dark glasses on, you go in and you order a burrito, and you can’t wait for the media to say, “Wow, look! That’s the new Hillary! Why, we’ve never seen her eat a burrito.”
Nobody knew who she was. She gets out of this van, she’s traversing Iowa, she didn’t stop to talk to anybody. I thought this is an everyman tour. I thought this was a tour where Hillary Clinton was gonna meet the people that she’s standing up for, that she’s representing, that she’s doing everything she’s doing for the little guy, doing it for them. She slithers in to Chipotle, doesn’t get recognized, doesn’t seek to be recognized. Well, maybe, you never know. Wearing the dark glasses is a favored technique of celebrities trying to hide.
But most candidates choosing to walk into a place like Chipotle, the last thing they would do when they got in there was order something to eat. The first thing they would do is make the rounds, table to table. “Hi. I’m Hillary Clinton. And I’m representing you, Mr. Everyman. I know you’re just an average, ordinary America, and you’re eating an excrement sandwich because of George Bush, Rush Limbaugh, and the Republicans. And I’m here to give you a little mustard or mayonnaise for that excrement sandwich, and I would love your vote.”
She didn’t do that. She went straight to the chow line, ordered her new burrito. It looks like she’s standing next to Huma there. Did she pay for it? Who paid for it? You know, celebrities like that are famous for walking around with no money and no credit card because they’re so accustomed to somebody else picking up the check. The Clintons really rate high on that scale.
But I would like to know if she left anything in the tip jar, because that would be an indication that she understands the average, ordinary, everyman that she seeks to represent. I mean, that’s where the people that work at Chipotle, that’s where they make a little extra, in the tip jar, and I haven’t heard a word about whether or not she visited the tip jar, whether she put anything in it or not.
