RUSH: Vince Flynn's new movie. You know, American Assassin. They've made a movie. It opens on September 15th. I can already tell you it's dynamite. American Assassin is just fabulous.
RUSH: We got a note from a father and it says: "My son wants to give you a shout-out, Mr. Limbaugh. He's 9 years old. He just went through a heart transplant at Texas Children's Hospital." We are going to not only give a shout-out here, but in our Rush in a Hurry email recap. So thank you, Steven. I appreciate it.
RUSH: Why do you have to go there and be insulted by Joy Behar? What do you expect to get out of this? I don't understand it.
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait. I just want to make sure I understand. You're not upset Trump did the deal with Chuck and Nancy is what you're saying?
RUSH: I think they're perfectly fine with Trump doing a deal with the Democrats. I'm sure they're mad that they have to take multiple votes on the debt ceiling and all that because it exposes 'em more, and it brings the government shutdown threat to the fore in three more months.

There are many, and at the top of the list is something I’ve been trying to tell people about since Trump got into this: He’s not ideological.
RUSH: The NFL kicks off tonight in Foxborough, Massachusetts, the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots. And in all my life I have never… I don't recall. Maybe a strike year? No, not even that. Folks, I don't recall a year where I can't find any interest in it.
RUSH: Your beloved and respected host is being slimed and smeared with a fake news campaign that has been ongoing for three days, which, in the bottom-line analysis, confirms pretty much everything I have said.
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: We have some more excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened, which tries to explain what happened.
