RUSH: Shirley in Phoenix. Welcome. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: I’m a first-time caller, and I love your show. And I would like to talk about the Democrat Party running Kyrsten Sinema for president in 2020 —
CALLER: — like they did Obama. I live in Arizona, and the billionaire Tom Steyer and the Democratic Party spent millions of dollars to get her elected to Jeff Flake’s seat, who is a big-time brain-dead RINO. And I’m getting sick of seeing him on television. But, anyway, she —
RUSH: You know what Flake is doing right now?
RUSH: You know what Flake is doing right now? Get this, now, folks — Jeff Flake — this is not gonna take away from what you want to say about Sinema, but since you bring Flake up, I want to tell people what he’s doing.
RUSH: He is blocking confirmation votes on Trump judicial nominees because the Senate will not pass a bill to protect poor little Bobby Mueller from being fired. And so here’s this great Republican, this great patriot Jeff Flake right out of the McCain wing of the party standing in the way of judicial nominees that he does not oppose being confirmed because the Senate will not pass a piece of legislation protecting little Bobby Mueller from being fired by mean little Trump. It is the most childish thing that we’ve seen yet. And it is the epitome of irrational Never Trumperism. But I am fascinated by your theory that the Democrats are gonna nominate this Kyrsten Sinema babe.
CALLER: Okay, I don’t think she’s that bad looking and she portrays herself as this angelic —
RUSH: Wait a minute. Who said she is bad looking?
CALLER: Well, I’m just saying, as a woman looking at another woman, I don’t consider her beautiful, but she’s not bad looking.
CALLER: She’s very soft-spoken, and she acts like she really cares about people and the people of Arizona. And my husband and I research everybody that we vote for the election, and we came up with some very interesting things about Kyrsten Sinema. And I would like for you and your staff to look into everything you can about her so you can inform the public what a fraud she is. And just a few things —
RUSH: That won’t matter if she’s as good-looking as you say.
CALLER: (laughing) Well, I think the 30 people running for the Democratic — I think that’s a bunch of hogwash. I think they want people not to even think that Trump doesn’t have a chance to become a second term president.
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait a minute. What do you think is hogwash? I’m having trouble hearing what you’re saying. (crosstalk)
CALLER: — people running for Democrat, president.
RUSH: Oh, you don’t think a lot of Democrats are gonna run?
CALLER: No, I don’t. I think they’re just saying that so people won’t even pay attention to that, to what they’re doing. And I think that Kyrsten is being groomed, she’s gonna get Jeff Flake’s seat —
RUSH: I know, but is she talking about running for president?
CALLER: No, she’s not. That’s why I think it’s a real possibility and she’s the type of person that the Democrats love.
RUSH: Okay. As I understand this, all the Democrats talking about running are not going to and the woman not talking about it is going to? And this we know because we’re talking about Democrats? Along these lines, you know, Beto O’Rourke — what is his name, Rufus, Julius O’Rourke, whatever his name is — Robert Francis. Karl Rove kept calling him that, refused to call him Beto. Karl Rove said (imitating Rove), “We don’t have people in Texas named Beto. What is this? He’s Robert Francis O’Rourke.”
Now, he’s being pushed by some in the Democrat Party as the star presidential nominee in 2020, and Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, says, “What? Since when do losers end up being suggested as our nominee?” Abraham Lincoln is one who did it, a loser who did become a nominee. Abraham Lincoln is the one exception to this. But the interesting thing is that it’s Rahm saying it, Rahm Emanuel. Here you’ve got the supposedly young, good-looking, Kennedyesque guy out of Texas who should have beat Ted Cruz, should have beat Ted Cruz but didn’t. And because he should have beat Ted Cruz, he may well be the savior and star of the Democrat Party. And Rahm Emanuel, ha-ha-ha-ha, over our dead bodies is that gonna happen.
As to Democrats seeking the nomination, I respectfully disagree. I don’t know what the final number of Democrats in the primary debates is gonna be, but I happen to think that there are more of them that are going to talk about it and seriously look into it than anybody can imagine. John Kerry just threw his hat back into the ring today. John Kerry, who served in Vietnam, is talking about maybe doing it again.
Hillary Clinton is going to do it again! She and her husband have started out this world tour, you know, this speaking tour. By the way, the first stop, they didn’t even come close to filling up half an arena, and nobody could hear what Bill was saying when it was his turn because she had a coughing spasm fit.
Tom Steyer says that he’s serious about running. He’s their climate change financier. You’ve got Kamala Harris, who’s already been to Iowa and New Hampshire. And you’ve got Spartacus, Cory Booker who’s always on the way to Iowa. The big wild card is Bernie Sanders. Can Bernie Sanders recapture the magic? Will he go for it again? Oh, yeah. Fauxcahontas, Elizabeth Warren. She’s set on running. I think there’s a slew of ’em. I don’t know about Andrew Cuomo. I don’t know about Andrew Cuomo. In his mind, maybe.
And don’t rule out Michelle Obama. Whatever you do, do not rule her out. That’s exactly right. She said she’s never gonna run, just like Kyrsten Sinema has not talked about running and we’re told in the Democrat Party that’s when you run is when you say you’re not going to. But Michelle Obama with Oprah behind her, get Stacey Abrams back in the mix to get even for losing Georgia.
Can you imagine that troika out there trying to secure the Democrat nomination? Of course Barack Hussein O would have to get in on the action as the husband. And over here you’ve got Hillary feeling ganged up on again, this time by female African-Americans. It could be fun to watch, depending.
