RUSH: Here is Cynthia in Virginia. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: I’m great. I’m glad you called.
CALLER: We are like coast to coast, aren’t we?
CALLER: I’m in Virginia; you’re in California.
RUSH: Right. We’re meeting halfway via phone line. Yes, that’s very cool.
CALLER: I know. It’s such a pleasure and an honor to talk to you. We’ve been listeners for 25-plus years.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Yeah. My husband was in law enforcement, and he got turned on to you, you know, driving in his patrol car. So he kind of turned me on to you too.
RUSH: Well, good for him. God bless you both.
CALLER: Well, thank you. Thank you. I just wanted to mention, I know you talked a little about climate change today and my husband and I were just for some variety, watching the Miss America Pageant last night, and he’s always great at picking the winners. So in between that and —
RUSH: I heard about this.
CALLER: You did?
RUSH: Yeah. They were making the contestants, they were leading the contestants into criticizing Trump, right?
CALLER: Well, it was very odd. The last four or five contestants, and they had a great variety of judges, I was pleased to see.
RUSH: That show hasn’t been the same since I was a judge and everybody knows it.
CALLER: How long ago was that?
RUSH: I was a judge four or five years ago. In fact, I was a judge then, and here’s the — you know, I didn’t see the show, but I’ve seen where some Miss America contestants were forced into or led into being critical of Trump. I don’t know if it was during interviews or what have you. And it doesn’t surprise me. It’s the same thing we’ve been talking about today. It’s everything we’ve been talking about today.
I mean, I was surprised to see it ’cause I didn’t see the actual show. But then after I digested it for a minute it made total sense because there’s the groupthink again, there’s the consensus. Everybody hates Trump, Trump’s a pig, everybody hates Trump, women hate Trump, oh, my God, women hate Trump because of the Billy Bush tape. You, Miss America Pageant contestant, you hate Trump, too, right, Trump’s a pig, right? Things like that. I mean, that’s not specific. I don’t know what the actual questions were.
Of course, what’s a poor contestant supposed to do, figuring out, “No, I actually like President Trump. I had dinner with President Trump.”
“You had dinner with Trump?” They don’t want to go there. They’ve politicized everything, folks, is the point. I appreciate the call, Cynthia. Thank you. Thank you very much.
