RUSH: Okay. Millennials. Millennial women in particular. I’m gonna give you people time to spread the word to them. Tell ’em I really want ’em to tune in during the next five minutes or so. I’m gonna tell ’em the real story of how Bill met Hillary. I’m gonna tell the real story of how Bill and Hillary ended up as they are. I don’t know how they met. I think I have a pretty good idea, but how they met’s not the deal. Going to Illinois, that’s… None of that’s important. None of that’s important.
I want these Millennial women to hear it. It’ll probably tick them off. You tell them it’s gonna take a lot courage. If you know a Millennial female, call ’em and say, “Turn on Limbaugh. It may be painful, but you have to hear it.” Telling them, “It may be painful,” may actually entice them to tune in.
RUSH: You want to talk about change? Last night the theme of the Democrat convention, the theme of the Bill Clinton speech — and there were many in there. But one of the big themes was that Hillary’s a change-maker. Why, she makes more change and better change and she changes it better — change this, more change — than anybody. He saw that when she was wearing Coke-bottle glasses and a cute little print white dress and so forth, standing in a registration line in Harvard or Yale or whatever.
He knew the minute he looked at her she was an agent of change. “I tell you what, she’d want to change and you’d better be prepared ’cause it’s gonna get changed.” And it’s a crock. It hasn’t been any change. We’ve had 30 years of we know what’s coming. Hillary hasn’t changed. He couldn’t list the changes. But if you want to talk about change, Donald Trump has done more to change the political landscape and the political dialogue in this country than any of the people on the Democrat National Convention stage the last two nights.
Trump has never once held political office.
He’s done all of this with simply the power of his personality. He does not have a lapdog media. He does not have a media that clears the decks for him. He doesn’t have a media that covers up for him. He doesn’t have a media that fawns over him. He’s got an adversarial media that’s doing its best to destroy him every day. And what he’s doing is saying things that a lot of people are thinking, but nobody in national politics has been willing to say, because they are shackled by either fear or political correctness or a combination of the two.
You want to talk about change. Is there anybody else that you know who could hijack from the most powerful media institutions in the world the coverage of the Democrat National Convention less than 12 hours after it finished? Is there anybody? And they had some pretty bad star power on the stage last.
RUSH: I thought last night that Clinton’s performance was superb. I know his voice was weak, or weaker than we are expected to hearing, used to hearing, but he’s… You realize he’s the same age as Trump? You realize they’re the same age? That’s interesting to note. I thought it was a masterful performance. I thought he had that audience in the palm of his hand.
I thought the premise was flawed. I thought much of the contents were exaggerated and filled with misdirection. But just as a performance, it was vintage Bill Clinton. The problem is the Democrat Party is not Bill Clinton’s party anymore. That’s not… The Democrat Party today is not enamored of Bill Clinton. They may not even be enamored of Hillary. But the things that jazzed Democrats back in the nineties are nowhere near the things that jazz the Democrats of today. This is… After all, Bill Clinton is the guy that signed welfare reform.
Bill Clinton is the guy that said, “The era of Big Government is over.” Whether or not he meant it or not, he said it. Any number of other things: The crime bill, a hundred thousand new cops. He did everything in opposition to Black Lives Matter and the things that animate the existence of the Democrat Party today. Midnight basketball! Bill Clinton did midnight basketball. He is not looked at by this current generation of Democrats as anywhere near the hero he was back in the nineties.
RUSH: I really don’t believe that I have ever seen what I just saw. I’ve been thinking. I’ve been trying to dig deep into the dark crevices of my memory, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen what I just saw. Donald Trump just hijacked the Democrat convention after the biggest night of that convention so far. Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, just concluded, right in time for this program to begin. (They got the memo.)
He just concluded a freewheeling, no-holds-barred, no-controls-on-the-media, “Whatever you want to ask me, ask me,” press conference the day after the supposedly biggest event yet in the Democrat National Convention. He just totally hijacked it, and he was brilliant. He was on his game. This was the Trump from last fall. He was confident, he was hilarious, he was taking no BS from any in the media. He was challenging Hillary to do the same thing and calling her out, saying she hasn’t done a press conference in over a year.
And she can’t do what Trump did today. Hillary Clinton intellectually, personality-wise, is not capable. She’s not capable of doing what Donald Trump did today. I have never seen a Republican presidential nominee even get involved in the Democrat convention. My experience is that the playbook in the professional, insider world of politics is that when one party is having its convention, the other party goes silent.
RUSH: I am in awe here. This just has not been done. This is a literally hijacking. Like I was saying, I expected the first thing out of my mouth today and for awhile was gonna be the Bill Clinton speech last night. And I heard that Trump was gonna do a presser from Miami, and I said, “Okay, cool.” But it wasn’t until halfway through, maybe not even halfway through it that I realized the first thing I’m gonna do talking about today is Donald Trump, not Bill Clinton.
WATCH FULL: Donald Trump Scathing Response To Hillary Clinton, Dems at Press Conference
RUSH: When I saw Elizabeth Fauxcahontas last night, talk about rigged game. And then I heard her say, “Hillary Clinton wants to take the money out of politics.” When I saw that I laughed my ass off and then I knew what was coming, Citizens United. Hillary Clinton will turn back Citizens United. Do you know what the Citizens United case is, folks?
Do you know what that was really about? Citizens United, it’s a PAC. They made a movie criticizing Hillary Clinton and she didn’t like it, and she went to court with her supporters to try to prevent anybody raising money to run critical media of her. That is it in the nutshell. Of course, it’s about much broader things than that, but that was why and remains why Hillary Clinton’s fit to be tied over this.
