TODD: Let’s talk to Landon, North Carolina. Landon, we’ve got about a minute and a half together, my friends. Welcome to Rush’s show.
CALLER: Hello. So I just, first of all, would like to say, “Rest in peace,” to Rush. I have the greatest respect for him now, but formerly, I actually didn’t. I used to call him… This is when I was like 12. I was not educated, and I was not learning anything, but I used to call him like a bigot, an idiot, and a racist all the time when I was younger. I had no idea what I was talking about until recently.
CALLER: When I was about 17, I started listening to his show on the way home from school, and I realized that everything I said about him was completely wrong, and I’m just calling to say I apologize to Rush and all his listeners.
TODD: How old are you?
CALLER: I’m 18 now.
TODD: Hey, Landon?
TODD: It is a big man thing, a grown man thing to do what you just did. I’m really proud of you, and I’m really proud of you, and real quickly, what…? Can you think of one thing that most turned you around, Landon, when you got to listen to the Maha?
CALLER: I realized that when I was talking to him — or when I was listening to his show — I never realized how much, like, how corrupt the Democrats were. And then I just kind of realized, like, something just clicked in me after I started listening to his show. I was like, “Wait a minute. I was wrong this whole time about them. They’re not these great people that everyone was talking about. They’re terrible people! They’re more racist than they’re claiming that they are and that they’re making us to be, basically.”
TODD: Yeah. Yeah. It’s a great phone call. And, again, it’s not an easy thing to apologize. I’m so glad that you’re on board — and look, this is the crazy thing about the program is what Rush built with this family and the team and the people behind the scenes and these, you know, small companies who Rush made into big companies, it’s so enduring that we continue to see this growth, or at least EIB does. I shouldn’t say, “We.” I thank you for the phone call, Landon, thank you for being a stand-up brother.
