RUSH: Okay. Here’s Joel in Brooklyn. Joel, great to have you on the EIB Network. How are you doing, sir?
CALLER: I’m doing fine. Thank you for having me on the line. I just wanted to tell you that I was, until recently, a die-hard liberal. The funny story was that I had a friend that I go, like, to school with. I’m actually a youngster. He told me, “This guy on the radio is giving out free iPhones.”
I told him, “What?” That’s how I started listening to you, and I started listening to you only ’cause of that, and then you just got into my head, and you literally took over my views in life, and I turned my views around. I’m not… I don’t need an iPhone and I don’t need anything. I just need to listen to you, and you’re literally my mentor in life. Now I can see headlines… They look different to me, headlines. I see CNN headlines totally different. It looks to me like it’s written in red blood, is how it looks to me now.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. So it was the fact that this guy told you I was giving away iPhones? That’s cool. You listened and your mind changed right on the spot, almost, it sounds like.
CALLER: Changed almost that fast. I guess it was four or five weeks ago, and it’s changed 360-degrees.
RUSH: Man, I tell, that’s music to my ears, because I’ll be… Folks, that’s one of the reasons I do this. I’ll be honest with you. I’m not just doing this to hear my head rattle, and that’s great. Do you want a new iPhone? I have some left over. Do you want an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus?
CALLER: Oh, my gosh.
RUSH: I’m sorry. Absolutely. Okay, seven or 7 Plus, you tell me which one.
CALLER: 7 Plus.
RUSH: 7 Plus. I got one that’s unlocked. It’ll work on any carrier that you have. You have a color preference?
CALLER: No. Negative.
RUSH: Okay, fine. I’ll just send you the prettiest one. It’s jet black. I’ll send you one. Hang on. Don’t go away so that Mr. Snerdley can get the address. Give him your real one. You’re from Brooklyn. Give him your real address so that we can get this to you. And thank you, Joel.
