RUSH: A couple more audio sound bites. I didn’t know this was in the Stack. I was just informed that this next bite was in the Stack. During the Trump appearance there, it happened on Bloomberg TV today, Market Makers. Erik Schatzker is the host, and he’s talking with the Bloomberg Wall Street reporter, Max Abelson about a recent Bloomberg story, how Trump invented Trump.
SCHATZKER: Trump seems to have learned the same lesson that folks like — I don’t want to equate them, I’m just drawing a comparison — that Rush Limbaugh learned. The more you say something, even if it isn’t true, the more people believe it is true.
ABELSON: Well, that’s definitely probably a very profound American reality, but, on the other hand, I will say that Rush Limbaugh — actually, I was just about to say Rush Limbaugh is not a businessman in the same sense Donald Trump is, but maybe the Excellence in Broadcasting, is that what Rush Limbaugh’s company is called? I think it is.
SCHATZKER: He certainly is successful —
ABELSON: He probably has a real company. But Donald Trump, to be fair, though, has put up huge buildings.
RUSH: These guys are comparing me to Trump, “But Limbaugh doesn’t have buildings and Trump has buildings. He’s still an impresario, but Trump has learned what Limbaugh learned,” and then they get this BS about say something often enough, it doesn’t matter whether it’s true. You in this audience know full well that everything said on this program is researched to be the truth, and if we screw it up, we correct it. Besides that, these guys forgot about the EIB building in Midtown Manhattan.
