TRUMP: Pocahontas? Is that what you said? Elizabeth Warren?
RUSH: The reporter was all offended, see? Trump said, “Who, Pocahontas? Well, no, she’s…” And it was a female reporter. She said, “Is that offensive?” And Trump said, “Look, she’s…” “Is it offensive? She’s the one…” The reporter said that’s “very offensive,” to call her Pocahontas. And Trump said, “You tell me. Sorry. Really? Well, I’m sorry.” The reporter said, “Yes. It’s very offensive.” And Trump said, “I’m sorry about that. Pocahontas, is that what you said? Elizabeth Warren? High cheekbones”?
So the reporters don’t know what to do with this. (interruption) The reporter was Native Amer…? The reporter says… Well, these reporters are used to being able to silence candidates by saying, “It’s offensive! How dare you, Mr. Trump?” and Trump just keeps firing right back at ’em. And then he said, “Look, about Pocahontas. See, Elizabeth Warren is a fraud, folks. Elizabeth Warren is as white as any white person has ever been white. She is so white that five seconds in the sun and she turns red, okay?
“She said when she was trying to get hired at Harvard that she has Indian blood because she needed to be part minority. Being a woman wasn’t enough. She had to be part minority. She had to use affirmative action to get hired. So she said there was Indian blood way, way back in her family tree, and the evidence was her high cheekbones.” She said all that. It’s not Trump’s fault that he heard it and calls her on it. It’s not Trump’s fault that everybody else thinks it but nobody else will say it. This is how the left gets away with all this.
RUSH: Here’s Quinn in Dublin, Texas. Great to have you on the program. Hello.
CALLER: My right leg is tingling in total honor of you, sir.
CALLER: And I do want to say, I think you are a kingmaker. I’m pretty sure you’re a kingmaker. You talked about being on the golf course with Mr. Trump and what a wonderful — well, you said what a nice, good guy he is, and I’m sure he is. And I think you guys got together and said, “Why don’t we try it? You listen to me, Donald, and I think I can get you there.” And then on your show, you kind of pushed him out there into the forefront, and you covered for him many times. You covered and said, “Well, this is what he meant,” or, “This is the way it should be looked at.” And I think you have made a king, sir.
OBAMA: How often does material advancement or social innovation blind us to this truth, how easily we learn to justify violence in the name of some higher cause.
RUSH: What higher cause?
OBAMA: Every great religion promises a pathway to love and peace and righteousness, and yet no religion has been spared from believers who have claimed their faith as a license to kill.
RUSH: What the hell is…? What’s that got to do with Hiroshima and Nagasaki? “Every religion… No religion has been spared from believers who have claimed their faith as a license to kill?” We didn’t get into World War II because we were running around thinking of ourselves having a license to kill! We were defending ourselves. For criminently’s sake, we were defending ourselves and everybody else that was under assault! We were defending the free world. License to kill? Well, Obama is letting everybody know what he actually thinks about this.
RUSH: You’ve heard that the Democrats, like Joe Manchin and some of these others, “No! No! No! Don’t debate, no.” They’re mad at Bernie. They’re mad at Crazy Bernie for accepting it. Crazy Bernie is thanking Jimmy Kimmel for suggesting the idea. Trump went along with it.
Now, the Democrats, you would think that they’re upset about this ’cause it’s upstaging Hillary. And Hillary would be upset about it for that reason. But I don’t think that’s why the Democrats are worried about this. She’s only, what, how many delegates away? I know that wouldn’t have much to do with upstaging. It’s a factor. But I think what they’re really worried about, so far the Crazy Bernie campaign hasn’t been seen by very many people. Remember the Democrat debates took place on Saturday nights, or as they say in my hometown of Cape Girardeau, “Sat-eer-day,” they took place on Saturday nights. Nobody watched ’em. Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz purposely scheduled those debates when nobody’s watching TV.
Now, people are aware that Crazy Bernie’s winning, but they don’t know what Crazy Bernie’s saying, because that campaign is not taking place in mass media. It’s taking place in the physical locations, and there are excerpts, of course, highlights, news stories from the Drive-By Media about it. Crazy Bernie hasn’t had anywhere near the national exposure that, say, Trump has had, or even that Hillary has.
And I’m here to tell you, folks, that the reason why there is such panic and palpable fear on the Democrat side that this may actually happen, they are afraid the public is going to end up seeing the real Democrat agenda, with the mask off and with no camouflage, if they put Bernie out there. I mean, Hillary’s a radical socialist, too, but she knows how to cover it up. She knows how to hide it. She knows how to mask it. She knows how to camouflage it. She’s much better at that. So was Slick Willie. Obama is good at hiding it. Crazy Bernie doesn’t even try to.
RUSH: Have you heard Hillary’s reaction? “Oh, no, no, no, no, they’re not gonna do that, they’re just kidding, you know, they’re just kidding about this.” Meanwhile, she’s sitting over there saying (imitating Clinton), “What the hell is going on here? What’s Trump doing debating –” And she’s out there saying, “No, no, no, Trump’s gonna be debating me.” But she doesn’t want that to happen, either.
Now, this is a brilliant move. I do mean it when I said I don’t know if Trump knows how brilliant. I’m not trying to insult him. I’m trying to compliment his instincts here. His instincts just serve him so well, it’s breathtaking to watch.
RUSH: You know who’s got to be the single most ticked off guy in the world about all this today is Bernie Sanders. Do you think he would have that night back if he could take it back. It was in Philadelphia, it was a debate, he said, “And I agree that we don’t need to hear anymore about Mrs. Clinton’s emails.” You think he would love to have that back? Think if he would have gone in heavy on her emails back then, he would have been seen as a precursor. But he gave her cover on this months and months ago. And you know darn well if he could get it back, he would.
