CALLER: Hello, Rush. I first want to say that it is an honor and a privilege to be able to speak to you, and I want you to know that your show has been a part of my daily schedule for probably the last two decades of my life.
RUSH: I really appreciate that more than you could ever know.
CALLER: And I appreciate you and everything that you do for our party. The reason for my call — and I’m so happy that I got through — is I want to say that I think that Donald Trump is one of the most inspiring, honest, sincere public officials (if you will), businesspeople that I have heard in I can’t remember when. And this is my take on why Donald Trump has the following that he has. Let’s set aside Democrats, Republicans, independents, any kind of a party that you want to have out there.
Donald Trump represents America and Americans, and that’s why he’s doing so well. There is no doubt in my mind that that man is running for this office because he remembers America, its fabric, its foundings, and everything that we are supposed to represent. And I have watched the primary season from beginning to end, and everybody went after him in the worst possible way. They called him a buffoon. They said he was a joke.
And even moments before the convention started, the press still said, “Oh, well, maybe there’s a way they’re not gonna give him the nomination.” He has been up against it from the very beginning, and everybody says he has thin skin? This man doesn’t have thin skin! He has thick skin, and he has an agenda — and his agenda is to the American people, of which I am one. I am very proud, and I hope and pray every day that this man will be elected to the highest office in our land.
RUSH: Dori, I think a lot of people — I don’t know how many, but I think a lot of people — had similar reactions to Trump last night.
