The Rush Limbaugh Show Main Menu




RUSH: Auntie Maxine, who’s the queen of the resistance. She was on a TV show called Washington Watch with Roland Martin. It’s on some network called TV One. And he said to Maxine, “The reality is like anything else, you’d better get what you can while he’s there, because look, come 2016…” They’re talking about Obama, and they’re talking about African-Americans and other minorities. “Hey, you better reach in and grab everything you can while Obama’s there, because after 2016, Obama’s gone.”

Now, if I may make a brief departure here, in less than a year, Donald Trump has done more for the lives and the future of African-Americans than Barack Obama even thought about in eight years. Black unemployment never came down under Barack Obama. Black prosperity didn’t move any at all. But here’s Roland Martin. What does this mean? “The reality’s like anything else. You better get what you can while he’s there.” What does that mean? “You better get what you can.” Like in benefits? What the hell does that mean?

Well, we all know what it means, and we all know what it meant for these people to vote for Obama. That’s why you did it. Remember the woman in Tampa that wanted Obama to get her a new kitchen? That’s what his election meant to her, a new kitchen. Maybe a new van to drive around in while she did whatever other things that she did. Anyway, here is auntie Maxine’s answer to that.

WATERS: Well, you know, I don’t know. And I think some people are missing something here. The president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.

RUSH: And that’s the last we heard about it because I will guarantee you that somebody got hold of Auntie Maxine and said, “Do you see this glue? If you don’t shut up, this glue is going right between your lips and you’re not gonna be able to open your mouth ever again. Shut the hell up, Maxine.” And we haven’t heard another word about this. Play it again, Sam. I want you to hear this one more time, this is 2013. This is the year that the New York Times is going bonkers writing one complimentary story after another about Obama’s genius data collection team working in the White House.

WATERS: Well, you know, I don’t know. And I think some people are missing something here. The president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.

RUSH: Well, that sounds — I mean, this is three years before Trump and Cambridge Analytica. Obama is gonna have this massive database with very powerful, information about everything on every individual. Can you imagine if, let’s say Steve Bannon called a press conference and said, “You know, my buddies at Cambridge Analytica, we’re preparing this massive database. We’re gonna know everything about everybody. It’s gonna be the most massive data collection on people in this country there’s ever been.” Do you think there’d be praiseworthy articles about it?

I tell you, they’d put everybody in prison that had anything to do with it if something like that happened. Here’s Maxine bragging about it, and it happened, is the point. Why do you think Google was practically — look, I’m being redundant here. But you could look it up. Google practically lived there. They had a satellite office. Google and Obama were inseparable, and there’s only one reason for that. And remember how Obama got elected in the first place, by exposing sealed divorce records of his opponent running in the state Senate race in Illinois.
