RUSH: This is last night Bloomberg Television, What’d You Miss? name of the show, co-host Matt Miller speaking with media correspondent Gerry Smith about the Republican nominee starting his own TV network, Trump. They’re obsessed with this. They think Trump’s going to start his own TV network, didn’t want to wait. He’s just doing this to build up an audience for the eventual Trump TV network, and that’s what they’re discussing, and here is this Gerry Smith guy, the media correspondent at Bloomberg.
SMITH: Maybe Ivanka could have an hour, Rush Limbaugh potentially, so, you know, those are the sort of the ideas that are getting thrown out there, but, you know, Donald Trump obviously says he’s still focused on the election and doesn’t have any interest in a Trump TV network at this point.
RUSH: Right. I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve been waiting for my name to be included in all of this. I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked this. Fox debuted in 1996, “debutted” for those in Rio Linda. Since 1996, “I can’t believe you don’t have a show on Fox. Have they not asked you?”
“You wouldn’t believe the number of offers.”
“Well, why don’t you have a show?”
“I don’t like television!”
“Oh. Why not?” Then I go into the reasons why I don’t like TV. Anyway, they’re obsessed with that. That’s how they’re trying to comfort themselves. Trump doesn’t really want to win. Trump’s setting up Trump TV. Everybody that I’ve talked to in the Trump network, the last thing on his mind is a news network. I mean, this has been manufactured out of clean air.
