RUSH: So Obama’s out now speaking. We had Paul Ryan. We had Hillary. Now Obama’s speaking, he’s out there in the Rose Garden. (interruption) What? No! We’re not gonna JIP Obama! People don’t tune in to listen to Obama. People tune in to listen to me. I’ll tell you what Obama’s doing. Obama’s being his usual arrogant self. He’s out there saying, “I’m encouraged. I’m encouraged by what I heard Donald Trump say last night. I really am encouraged.”
You just are so pathetic, it’s hard for me to remain civil. What do you mean you are encouraged? Donald Trump just defeated everything you stand for. That’s what happened last night. We didn’t need this guy to win in 2008. He could have been defeated. The Democrat Party agenda was creamed last night. This was not a racial election. Van Jones is not right. This was not a whitelash.
Every way they choose to characterize their loss is going to be wrong until they admit that what they stand for was rejected. Their policies, their agenda was told to take a hike last night by all kinds of people. The average black construction worker in Michigan, the legal Mexican mechanic in Texas, has a lot more in common with the average white American laborer than, say, some elitist Obama family of Martha’s Vineyard vacationers. This was a coalition of all colors and stripes and backgrounds that came together last night to send this policy regime packing!
RUSH: Look, I can’t sit here and let this stand. Barack Obama, I know what he just said. He said we’re all rooting for Trump’s success, the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. He said he’s gonna follow the example the Bush White House set for him in working with Trump in the transition. He said, “Remember we’re all on the same team.” I’m sorry, Barack Obama has not treated us as though we are on his team in these eight years, and that is precisely the point. This has been an us versus them administration, by design. By design. That’s who they are.
Barack Obama said some things about America’s next president that are gonna be very hard to take back. I don’t care how gracious you are. When you accuse the president-elect of being the president of the KKK? Barack Obama was out there as an attack dog. He was a pit bull just like the media was a bunch of pit bulls when it came to Trump. Now they’re gonna become leg-humping poodles here when they deal with Democrats, but they’re gonna become pit bulls when dealing with Trump. You know it and I know it. This election was not about — I’m sorry, Mrs. Clinton, you didn’t lose because you’re a woman and the nation is sexist.
You didn’t lose because the American people don’t want a woman to crash through the glass ceiling. You lost because your ideas were rejected. You lost because your ideas have been on display for the last eight years and people don’t want any more of it. It’s not complicated here.
