RUSH: Okay, folks, I have to start with this because I foretold it. The Video Music Awards last night. Now, wait a second. Just stick with me here. If you go to Yahoo News, which is where low-information voters go to find out what’s going on, I want to share with you, here are the top three stories featured at Yahoo News this morning. Number one, how Trump could turn the presidency into a litigation circus. Oh, man, is there Trump news today. Ben Carson’s pulled into a tie with Trump in Iowa at 23. Carly Fiorina is in third place.
So we have a black Republican, a female Republican, and a white Republican paying his own way in the top three slots. Nothing to do with the Republican establishment, other than maybe Fiorina, who has had a linkage to it back in the McCain days. It was revealed yesterday on CNN on John King’s show that the Republican establishment is preparing to unleash on Trump after Labor Day.
Now, they aren’t gonna do it with their fingerprints on it. They are looking for PACs that have no ties to current Republican candidates. They don’t want any fingerprints of the party directly on whatever this smear of Trump is going to be. I’m gonna tell you, they’re running a huge, huge risk.
It looks to me like the Republican Party is being as obstinate and stubborn as it’s possible to be. In which case, if they’re gonna sit there, if they’re gonna watch all this transpire, if they’re not gonna learn a single thing from it, if they’re not gonna take just one thing, take your pick, because there’s a lot to learn from this Trump candidacy, this whole Republican primary, there’s beaucoup things to learn, if they’re not gonna take even one of them and try to adapt even one thing, much less a whole lot of things then, folks, they’re gonna be relegating themselves to minority status for I don’t know how long, irrelevancy.
And three big fundraisers have abandoned Jeb. And if that continues that’s, you know, Moneyville. That’s Jeb’s claim here to the nomination. That’s his route. And the FBI’s A-team is now on to Hillary. The FBI — drip, drip, now it’s becoming a trickle. The Regime is turning this up from drip, drip, drip, to trickle, trickle. Pretty soon it’s going to be a steady stream. The FBI A-team looking into 6,000 Hillary e-mails. The A-team meaning trying to find out what was there classified, what was hidden, what was shielded, and so forth, making it look like that they’re gearing up to dig in, dig in deep.
Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders accusing Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz on rigging the game on the Democrat side by limiting the number of debates. Trump going after Huma Weiner and her — what did he call him, perv husband, yeah, Weiner. We have the Cheneys on here in the second hour.
But back to the Video Music Awards because I can lay a claim to having some small, not involvement here, but I foretold this in a way. But let me go back to Yahoo News, the low-information voters, this is where they go. This is one of the places outside Facebook’s news, whatever they call it there, the news feed. If you go to Yahoo News, the top three stories: “How Trump Could Turn the Presidency Into a Litigation Circus.” I have no idea what that story even is. I’ve been prepping this show intensely since yesterday morning and I don’t know what the hell that’s about.
Number two: “White House Renames Mt. McKinley as Denali on Eve of Obama’s trip.” You know, Obama was gonna rename the Rocky Mountains too until he found out they were not named after a white boxer. Gonna change the name of mount McKinley back to Denali. He hasn’t said a word about the trooper shot in Houston. He hasn’t said a word about it. Honest to God, I was watching CNN today and they had some roundtable of attorneys laying out the case. The DA down there laid it all out. They’ve got the guy. They’ve got the perp. They’ve got the evidence.
The CNN anchor goes, “But, but, there’s one thing missing.” I’m not exaggerating here. The CNN anchor’s asking his guest, “There’s one thing missing. My God, my God, we have no motive, why? Why?” And he runs around the table, “Why would this happen?” Can anybody say Black Lives Matter? Can anybody say cable television? Can anybody say something like the Al Sharpton Show? Can anybody say the Drive-By Media and the way they reacted to, say, what happened in Charleston?
What do you mean, why did it happen? They never have a problem finding motive when the races are reversed in a thing like this. You know, when some lunatic white guy opens fire on African-Americans, there’s no question the motive. Here they are beside themselves, they can’t find a motive.
And they’re asking… I’ll tell you this, too. The CNN anchor was asking all these lawyer buddies of his, “Let me ask you something. Despite all this evidence, will the prosecution need a motive for conviction?” They’re holding out hope the guy might get away with it. Thankfully, the lawyers told him, “Nah-nah-nah. Don’t need a motive here. This is the evidence was way beyond circumstantial.” And the third item… You thought I lost my place. I never do.
The third item Yahoo News top three stories this morning: “Nicki Makes up with Taylor at VMAs But Escalates Beef with Miley.” Now, I guarantee you this the low-information voters, the LIVs reading Yahoo know exactly what that’s all about. You may not. You may not know what Nicki is. You might know the reference to Taylor, and you probably know the reference to Miley, but what is this beef business that’s been escalated, and why did Nicki have to make up with Taylor? It’s Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus.
Now, into this mix comes can way, Kanye West who is Mr. Kim Kardashians. Well, that’s the thing. He’s going to run for… He got high last night says he’s gonna run for president right there on the stage. You know, he and Kim are having another baby. And I read what they’re doing. The first baby named Northeast… (interruption) Northwest, okay. Kanye West, the first baby’s name is North, and the second baby’s name is something to go along with the compass as well; I just can’t remember what it is.
(interruption) Is she pregnant? Can you tell? I don’t know! What do you mean you don’t know, you didn’t do it? (laughing) Is that the only reason you know somebody pregnant or…? (laughing) “I don’t know. I didn’t do it!” There are just rumors on the rise, like a cake in the oven rising. Okay. Well, here let’s go back to 2002, this is a mere three years ago, ladies and gentlemen, June the 5th. And I had this observation, made this observation on this program.
RUSH ARCHIVE: He’s becoming Barack Kardashian. I tell you that’s what’s becoming. He is becoming the male Kim Kardashian with this stuff, and it’s been building. He is Celebrity of the United States. He is not the president. And he’s actively — and his whole team’s out there pushing this. So it’s Barack Hussein Kardashian, is what he has become.
RUSH: Now, I made that observation after he started doing fundraisers are Anna Wintour in a Vogue magazine, Sarah Jessica Parker who’s upset that her family doesn’t get enough welfare benefits from the government. So I started jokingly calling — and, by the way, this trip to Alaska, you know what this really is about? (interruption) No, he’s going out there to appear on a reality TV show. That’s exactly right. He’s heading out to Alaska. It’s made to look like it’s got something to do with the climate change. By the way, it’s gonna snow.
Hee-hee-hee-hee. It is. They’re gonna have an early summer snow, or I guess be early fall snow, wherever he’s headed. Well, he’s gonna be on a reality show out there. And when they found out about it at CNN this morning, they were shocked; they were disappointed. They really thought… They bought it that he was going out for global warming. You know, perfect liberal cause. But no, he’s flying out to appear on a reality TV show. So, anyway, there it was on June 5th, I refer to him as Barack Kardashian.
The next day on Air Force One, en route to San Francisco, Jay Carney, the press secretary, held a little press gaggle with reporters, and during the Q&A….
REPORTER: Rush Limbaugh is referring to him as Barack Kardashian. What is your response to that?
CARNEY: Two words: “Donald Trump.” Next question.
RUSH: You see, ladies and gentlemen, this “on the cutting edge of societal evolution” stuff? Here we are back in 2012 I call him Barack Hussein Kardashian, a reporter asks the press secretary, “What about that? Limbaugh is referring to as Barack Kardashian!” Why even ask that? That must have made an impression on the media. They might have been worried that was gonna harm Obama and his lofty statesman-like intellectual image. So they asked Carney about it, and Carney says, “Two words: ‘Donald Trump.'”
Little did he know, little did he know. Now, here’s Kanye to close the loop on this. Remember, we are in a secret reach-out to low-information people on this program. Gotta be tolerant and understanding. It’s the MTV Video Music Awards last night and here is Kanye, got some kind of award, Video Vanguard Award. Just make up these awards to get these people on stage. Video Vanguard? What the hell is that? It’s just an excuse to get him up there on stage. So he was up there on stage; he admits that he is a little high.
RUSH: He’s stoned. He admits he’s stoned out, he’s a stoner, he’s up on stage receiving this award, and then he made the big announcement.
WEST: We the Millennials, bro. This is a new mentality. We not gonna control our kids with brands. We not gonna teach low self-esteem and hate to our kids. We gonna teach our kids that they can be something. We gonna teach our kids that they can stand up for they self. It’s about ideas, bro. New ideas. People who believe in truth. And, yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment: I have decided in 2020 to run for president.
RUSH: No kidding. How would we have possibly guessed that? What in the world happened there that would make us conclude, “Hey, this guy is running for president?” Was it when he said, “We gonna teach our kids that they can stand up for they self?” Or was it when he said, “Yeah, you know what? I rolled up a little sum. I knocked the edge off.” Was that the first clue?” If he’d have added, “And I will inhale,” I might have thought “presidency.” But he didn’t add, “And I’ll inhale,” so I just thought he was stoned, accepting a meaningless award just to get him up there on stage.
You know, it’s interesting, though, as he goes through all this stuff, “We the Millennials, bro! New mentality! Not gonna control our kids with brands. We’re not gonna teach low self-esteem and hate. We’re gonna teach our kids they can be…” He thinks this is new stuff. How bad must it be that Kanye West thinks traditional child raising is new? Well, and now audio sound bite number six. Carol Costello, the former EIB Network stalker at CNN before she got the anchor gig. She is talking with the host of their show there, Reliable Sources, about Obama, just aghast that Obama is gonna appear on a reality show in Alaska. They thought he was going out there to push global warming or something.
COSTELLO: (depressed) This news just in to CNN, and it has to do with President Obama appearing on a reality show. Brian Stelter is about to break the news. Seriously?
STELTER: Breaking news. Breaking news, yes.
COSTELLO: We might want to call it breaking news but —
STELTER: He’s in Alaska this week is gonna be taping a show of Bear Grylls reality show. It’s called Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
COSTELLO: Come on! Why?
STELTER: He’s joining celebrities like Drew Brees and Zac Efron and Channing Tatum.
COSTELLO: I still can’t get over (snickering) President Obama. Sorry. So he’s gonna be on this reality show, and he’s gonna be learning survival skills? He’ll be fully clothed and everything. It’s not like —
STELTER: Well, we’ll have to tune in to NBC —
COSTELLO: It’s not like Naked and Afraid, right?
RUSH: Carol… (laughing) “I don’t know why she laughs at everything he said. She never delivers the news with a straight face. I mean (laughing) everything she says ha-ha Obama, oh, my God.” I don’t, how do you do that? Anyway, she’s shocked, she’s stunned, and he’s gonna appear on a reality show. Carol, it’s about survival skills. We’re all gonna need ’em when this guy’s finished!
