RUSH: I mentioned earlier that I had been told by spies on the scene that Trump was delivering a stem-winder in High Point, North Carolina, but at the time we had lost our satellite feed here because of the dense overcast producing torrential rain and lightning. We have a couple of audio sound bites, though, just to give you a flavor for it. This is a huge crowd for High Point, I think two or three thousand people. It’s a sold-out venue, wherever it is. We’ve got two bites and I have not heard these myself, so we’ll be listening to them together.
TRUMP: Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people under one God, saluting one flag.
AUDIENCE: (applause and chants “USA”)
RUSH: Uh-oh. Uh-oh. Ho-ho-ho-ho.
TRUMP: It’s time to break with the bitter failures of the past and to embrace a new, inclusive prosperity and the American future, because that’s what it’s going to be. New factories are going to come rushing in. They’re going to come rushing, rushing in. We will incentivize people to stay and they will be decentivized if they leave our country. They’re not gonna just come out, fire all our people, build product outside of the country, and sell it into our country so easily. It’s gonna be a whole different ball game.
RUSH: And here’s the next bite.
TRUMP: We will make America wealthy again. And save your Social Security, which you people are a long ways away. We will make America strong again. We will make America safe again, and we will make America great again. God bless you. God bless you, and thank you. Thank you.
RUSH: Okay. We edited the applause there. I wouldn’t call that a stem-winder. It’s not a criticism. I just have a specific definition of stem-winder. And that’s not a stem-winder. That’s kind of dialed back and reserved there, at least our excerpts of it were. But you heard me say, “uh-oh,” when he said “what we can accomplish working together as one people under one God.” Ho-ho-ho-ho. The climate change crowd’s gonna go berserk on that one alone. And saluting one flag.
