RUSH: We got polling data from the Washington Post that everybody's — not everybody, a lot of people are — missing the lead in this poll. The Washington Post wants you to think that Trump's approval numbers are tanking and everything's going south, and the big news is that, if the election were held again, Trump would win again. And Hillary would lose again. And a greater number of people are upset and think the Democrat Party's out of touch than think the Republican Party's out of touch.
RUSH: It's a Daily Caller story. Ready for this? "Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats to Influence Policy." No kidding! Exactly. But this looks like somebody from the Obama regime is owning up to it.
RUSH: Now, the reason it's a news story, this is supposed to scare Netflix. It's supposed to scare the entire telecommunications, entertainment industry, 'cause these are cord cutters. And if they don't want to pay for it, it's going to be a problem. What if they cancel? What if they just pirate? What if they steal it? What are Netflix and others gonna do? And it is something that they do have to be concerned about.
RUSH: (Trump impression) "Well, wait, you're converting urine to water and you're drinking it? Ha. Better you than me." (laughing) "It's outrageous. How dare he speak that way to an astronaut? How dare he put her down, how dare he disrespect her." And they just do not have a sense of humor. Same thing with Jeff Sessions talking about some island judge standing in the way of Trump's executive order. They blew their gasket. Racism, bigotry, homophobia, whatever it is they want to level the charge at.
RUSH: The average Venezuelan has lost 20 pounds this year because of starvation. They simply can't get food. MSNBC said that they are losing weight because an oil company there donated half a million dollars to Trump and people are outraged. I know you're thinking, "What? What? What, Rush? What?" Yep.
RUSH: If the media were 40%, 30% less partisan than it is, if they were only 60% all-in for the Democrats, the Democrats would be in deep, deep doo-doo. The only thing that is keeping the Democrat Party alive and viable is the media, and the media is lying to everybody.
RUSH: I met Kate O’Beirne. And she was immediately accepting and friendly, outgoing, extroverted, ribald, whatever struck her is the way she behaved. She was brilliant. She was cooperative, and she was very shepherding in my process. This was 1988, Bush and Dukakis, third term of Reagan; there is no national conservative media.
RUSH: Cookie's mother was a role model. She just had so much respect and admiration and was so proud of her mother. It's a really, really deep loss because they had such an ongoing, deep connection. I neglected to mention that. It's an important aspect and characteristic to this. It's an enviable one, too, to have that kind of pride and respect and admiration for your parents. That's a gift.
RUSH: You’re gonna be amazed at the political coalitions that have sprung up in France that, in many ways, mirror exactly what’s happening in the United States.
RUSH: There's so much more going on with this than people know. It's like anything else, folks. If it's in the media, you have to bank on the fact that there's a whole lot that's not being reported and a whole lot that's being misreported for a reason, for a purpose.
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
RUSH: The poll shows Trump at 42% job approval, but virtually all of his supporters say they would do it again? This is flummoxing the media. They don't get it.
