RUSH: Fake news is what the news is today. You don’t have to go looking for it. You don’t have to go looking for it in blogs. You don’t have to go looking for it in obscure websites.
Just turn on your favorite news network or tune into or listen to or watch, read your favorite newspaper. And fake news abounds. “Hands up, don’t shoot,” fake news. George Zimmerman, “white Hispanic,” fake news. A video caused the terrorism at Benghazi, fake news. The Democrats lost because the Russians hacked the election, fake news! But it’s not stopping Obama from conducting an official investigation into how the Russians hacked our election.
Now, I don’t actually mind that because the more these people end up in denial and the more they keep lying to themselves about why they lost, the greater length of time it’s gonna be before they modify. If they’re content to still have people like Pelosi out there as the face of the Democrat Party, and, if Hillary Clinton and Obama are not gonna go away, continue to be the face of the Democrat Party, bring it on. The longer these people continue to live in denial about why they lost, that just means the longer it’s gonna be before they start making the changes they have to make if they’re gonna win elections at the local level again, which is where they’re gonna have to go.
Let’s go to the audio sound bites on this. Hillary Clinton. This was late yesterday afternoon in Washington on Capitol Hill. Her bash was last night for her donors, right? Yeah, two things, the Harry Reid thing, but when is this party for her donors? I thought it was last night or tonight or maybe it’s next Wednesday. I’ve been confused about the date. But the interesting thing about that, here’s Donald Trump running around doing free rallies, and his purpose is to thank the people who voted for him and to continue explain his agenda.
What he’s doing is brilliant, folks. I don’t care what you think of Trump, I don’t care what you think of his agenda, I don’t care if you’re a Never Trumper, Republican establishment, Democrat, you’re watching a master at work in Donald Trump. I don’t care if you disagree with what he’s doing, saying, you’re watching a master.
Okay, December 15th is her party. Okay. So in six days.
He is reinforcing why they elected him. He’s thanking them. He is explaining his agenda day in and day out. Remember the mistake the Republicans made in 1994. They stopped teaching after they won the House. They assumed everybody had gone conservative, the whole country had gone conservative. Trump is making no assumptions. He knows exactly why he won, and he’s going around continually reminding people, and he’s going to these states that the Democrats laugh at and make fun of. He’s going to the states where many of his cabinet picks are from.
And, meanwhile, the Democrats are sitting out there in their usual huddles lying to themselves about why they lost, and it has nothing to do with them. No, no, no, no. Fake News, the Russians, stupid voters, Trump lied, any number of things. Except the truth. And here’s Hillary. She went up to the Harry Reid photo or portrait unveiling and good-bye to Harry Reid.
And I’m told that when she was seen walking into this thing, that young women in the capitol literally started crying. “Hillary! (wailing) Thank you for… (crying) Oh, my, what could have been! (sobbing) I haven’t had sex since the election! (blubbering)” They’re saying that, by the way. No sex. They’re even writing it, some babe at The Atlantic or whoever it was. I don’t know, “I haven’t had sex since the election, and it’s Trump’s fault.” Well, I don’t if it’s on strike. They’re just a special kind of stupid! They’re in the throes of depression. You know what other young women are doing? They’re dyeing their hair black instead of wearing veils, lamenting the defeat of Hillary Clinton.
Anyway, here’s Hillary on Capitol Hill speaking at the unveiling ceremony of the Dingy Harry portrait…
HILLARY: (haltingly) …the epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over him the past year. It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences. Lives are at risk. Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda, and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news. It’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy and innocent lives.
RUSH: I’m just gonna tell you again. Mrs. Clinton, the reason fake news even lives is because people like you have abandoned all authority and credibility. You’ve got none. People think you lie. Your husband lies every time he opens his mouth. They think the Drive-By Media lies and tell us falsehoods and is biased irreparably and incorrigibly. There isn’t any source authority for anything out there now. So whatever goes, goes. There is no… In fact, do you know what the proof of this is? The proof that the Drive-By Media no longer is source authority and no longer has credibility? They have their own fact check operations to fact check themselves! We put together a little montage of Hillary Clinton as a purveyor of fake news herself.
HILLARY (1/27/1998): The great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it, is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband.
HILLARY (6/9/2014): We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt.
HILLARY (4/23/1994): I did not know that Vince had any of the documents related to our personal business in his office until after his death.
HILLARY (9/13/2012): This video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.
HILLARY (3/10/2015): I thought using one device would be simpler.
HILLARY (6/14/1994): …1975, I decided that I was very interested in having some experience in serving in some capacity in the military. And he finally said to me… He said, “You’re too old. You can’t see. And you’re a woman.”
HILLARY (3/17/2008): I remember landing under sniper fire.
HILLARY (1/27/1998): And to my husband. I mean, you know, he woke me up Wednesday morning and said, “You’re not going to believe this, but,” and I said, “What is this?”
RUSH: That’s just a brief montage of the fake news that Hillary Clinton has been responsible for herself. So every one of those is a lie! Every one of those little montage ingredients is fake news, not to mention the story she tells about being named after the mountaineer, Sir Edmund Hillary, first man to climb Mt. Everest. The only problem with that is that when he was born, nobody’d ever heard of him. He didn’t climb Mt. Everest ’til six years after she was born!
