RUSH: John in Houston. Great to have you, sir. How are you?
CALLER: I’m doing fine. And I just want to say I’m a first-time caller and long-term listener and I feel like I’m getting a giant autograph getting to talk to you.
RUSH: Well, I really appreciate you taking time out to call us today from Houston.
CALLER: I’m off work today ’cause I’m flooded in, and normally I would try to call you but I’m off the same days you’re off so it just happened to work out —
RUSH: Wait a minute, when you say you’re flooded in, does that mean you’re at home?
RUSH: Are you able to stay in your home or are you on the roof?
CALLER: No, I’m in my house. I can actually drive around to a limited amount ’cause I have a truck, but there are a lot of roads that are cut off, they’re too flooded.
RUSH: Any damage in your house?
CALLER: No. No. We’re good.
RUSH: Same thing for your neighborhood, for the most part?
CALLER: Yeah, for the most part. There’s a lot of neighborhoods around us that did get hit pretty hard.
RUSH: Help us out here, John. All we can do is watch TV here.
RUSH: Those of us, people that don’t know Houston, haven’t been there, of course are being led to believe the whole city is underwater. How many people that live in Houston are able to function normally, that are not affected by the flood, their homes are not flooded, streets in the neighborhood they can drive around, what percentage of the city would you say is, as best it can be said in times like this, normal?
CALLER: Well, not back to normal yet because the flooding of the main highways basically. But, I mean, there’s a lot of people that are thriving and just seeking shelter and stuff like that. I mean, I’ve in Houston all my life and I’ve seen hurricane after hurricane after hurricane and I was even in the hurricane that when everybody — mass exodus because of Katrina, everybody had the immediate reaction to get out —
RUSH: What about the area where the RNG stadium, the Astrodome are, that area? Is it flooded?
CALLER: Well, there’s a lot of people that are going there for shelter. There was a neighborhood that’s kind of close to me that was hit really hard and they went in there in boats and got ’em out and then bused them, I believe, bused them all down to there so they could —
RUSH: Is water inside RNG stadium?
CALLER: I don’t think so.
CALLER: What I can tell, it’s not. So it’s just certain neighborhoods —
CALLER: — that were just a little bit low that got hit hard.
RUSH: Okay. I appreciate you giving us that status report. I know that’s not why you called. What’s on your mind?
CALLER: Well, I just want to say, I’m a conservative, love listening to you all the time, and living with a, you know, liberal mayor, stuff like that, I would rather go through a hurricane than have to endure a Hillary Clinton presidency. That keeps me in perspective.
CALLER: That’s a disaster we can never get over. We can bounce back as Houstonians. But that one…
RUSH: What did I tell you about the people of Texas? So here’s this guy, this is nothing compared to the disaster we’d have if Hillary were president. That is awesome. That’s John in Houston, so far not flooded out where he lives. See, sense of humor still alive and well. Glad to hear that.
RUSH: You know, there’s also this stuff involving Hillary Clinton, and what’s she saying…? Is there…? What is it, the audio version all of book that’s out now or something where she says that she should have told “the big creep” to leave her alone, that she felt intimidated by his presence in the debate or some such thing? What is that the audio of? Is it a new book or is it the audio of an old book? (interruption) Oh, okay. So it’s an advance of the new one coming out. Well, what a crock!
The woman with the testicle lockbox wants us to believe that she’s afraid of a guy that walks within five feet of her? (impression) “The big creep! I should have told him!” You know, this woman is a lame excuse for what everybody once thought she was. I don’t understand why anybody ever was scared of this woman. I don’t understand. FBI files and testicle lockbox notwithstanding, I don’t understand it. This woman has never been what her reputation is. She’s not The Smartest Woman in the World. She’s not a political mastermind.
She can’t even overcome… She couldn’t even parlay a rigged primary election in her favor to beating somebody who had no business being elected president in the normal way of politics. She couldn’t overcome Obama in 2008. They paved the way for her twice in the Democrat Party! In 2008, that was the payoff for whatever they think Hillary did in saving Bill Clinton’s presidency and the Democrat Party. And they didn’t want her to win ’cause they went and they found this Obama guy. She didn’t have a prayer once he shows up.
So they guard against that happening again by Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz rigging the game against Crazy Bernie, but it’s obvious Democrat voters would rather have Crazy Bernie. And now she’s out there, and she cannot let this go. And she’s acting childish. There’s nothing admirable about the way she is comporting herself here, and you measure this against all of the accolades that we have been treated to by Democrats and by the media for the last 30 years about the Clintons. I mean, this is one giant fraud that we have had perpetrated on us.
There’s nothing… This woman is demonstrating… She’s now apparently gonna do a live stage show to try to sell this book. I found out how many copies of that book she sold. They gave her a $14 million advance. She sold 250,000 and probably a couple hundred thousand were bought by feminist unions and what have you. “Clinton to tell audiences her ‘personal, raw, detailed and surprisingly funny story’ in unprecedented nationwide tour with tickets selling for up to $1,200.” Mrs. Clinton, be graceful and go away and let events resurrect you.
RUSH: We have the Hillary sound bites that I’m gonna hold over to tomorrow regarding her book tour and how she should have told Trump, “Get away from me, you big creep!” It’s how he intimidated her during the debates. It’s a crock.
