Same Media That Played Rubio’s Joke on a Loop Is Outraged by Trump’s Retort?
Mar 4, 2016
RUSH: Let me ask you a question. Are all the fact-checkers gonna get involved here and start checking penis size and hand and finger size, folks? Is that where we’re headed next? Is that what’s gonna happen here? Washington Post fact-checker, PolitiFact? And how we supposed to trust what they tell us after this fact-check on that. Are you kidding me? Oh, man.
RUSH: Let me see if I understand something else here. The same Drive-By Media that has been calling for the candidates to take the gloves off against Donald Trump, are now all aghast and agog, having fainting spells because the gloves have come off against Donald Trump. The same Drive-By Media that played Rubio’s joke about Trump’s small hands on a practically and nearly endless loop are now pretending to be all aghast and shocked and stunned that Trump would say he doesn’t have small hands, and, by the way, he doesn’t have a small anything else. And it’s nothing to worry about, folks, trust me, you don’t have to worry about it, it’s all there. And the media is having vapors?
The media can’t believe what’s happened here, when they’re the ones that stoke this kind of thing? The same infotainment media that’s done everything it can — let me just put it out there. Everybody’s aware that cultural standards are rotting away, and there hasn’t been anybody standing up, not in the Drive-By Media. Drive-By Media doesn’t stand up. In fact, if you happen to point out cultural standards are rotting away and public decorum, they laugh at you and call you a nerd. They call you an old fuddy-duddy. They call you a stiff shirt. They call you a Victorian trying to get in the way of people’s fun.
Now here they are acting all offended and upset that this could possibly happen to our political discourse? You ever heard of Bill Clinton, for crying out loud? The same Drive-By Media that wanted to pass that off as nothing, the same Drive-By Media wanted to look at Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky and a cigar and everything else as none of anybody’s business ’cause it’s just sex and it didn’t get in the way of doing his job are now acting all distressed and wringing their hands, “Oh, my God, what’s happening to our country?”
Yeah, well, many of us have been asking that question for many, many moons.
