Limbaugh ‘BLOWN AWAY’ By Callers Explanation Of How Rush Is An ‘OVERCOMER’

RUSH: Robbie in my adopted hometown of Sacramento, California. You know I was thinking about Sacramento last night, Robbie. I don’t know why, but something about — oh. My brother had mentioned a name of somebody he talked to out there as he’s selling his book, promoting his book out there. I was thinking about how much I owe Sacramento. Thirty years years ago. It just blows my mind. Anyway, welcome. It’s great to have you here on the program.

CALLER: Hi, Rush Limbaugh. It’s another sunny day here in Sacramento, sunny and windy and allergy.

RUSH: You’re sounding a little bit too optimistic. You must be watching Fox & Friends.
CALLER: No. So, okay, there’s several things that I love about you, Rush. But the one that encourages me and inspires me the most is that you are an overcomer. May I take a moment to explain how I have arrived at this conclusion about you?

RUSH: Sure. Absolutely.

CALLER: Thank you. It will help me build to my question. So you have overcome poverty. You know what it’s like to make $19,000 a year and probably less than that, and now you can spend $19,000 at the snap of fingers. You know what it’s like to drive an old jalopy of a car, and now you carry around hundred-dollar bills to tip the valets. You’ve overcome career lows. You know what it’s like to be fired, and now you make a fine living doing what you love every day. You’ve overcome disability. You have a hearing disability and you’re the king of radio.

You’ve overcome the misconceptions and the misunderstandings of your intellectual father. Your intellect didn’t respond to the confines of the American academic structure, and now you write history books, and you’re America’s teacher. And last, you daily, for decades now, overcome slander and lying and deliberate misrepresentation. And President Trump might be the only other person I see subjected to, at the same level that you are, and you both overcome it with grace.

So, my question, since you understand Trump so well, and since you are yourself, I wanted to ask your advice for those of us in your audience who are subjected to slander and lying and misrepresentation and false narratives the more and more that we stand up for what is true and what is right.

RUSH: You want to know how to deal with it? Is that the question?

CALLER: Yeah. I want your advice. How do you overcome it with such grace, and what advice do you have for us who, at a different level, are still subjected to it?

RUSH: Okay, first off. Let me ask you a question. Would you like to write my biography?

CALLER: Sure. Let’s do it!

RUSH: I’m blown away by your — that was just one nice thing after another, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. That denotes an awareness on your part. You’re extremely aware. You’ve noticed things and you remember them. You should have seen my face as you’re going through this and everybody else’s. They were applauding you on the other side of the glass.

CALLER: Awww. Well, I’ve been listening to what you say for a very long time.

RUSH: Well, it’s obvious that you have. It kind of floors me, because I never hear anything like what you just said. I never, ever hear it, so it’s a combination of appreciation and a little embarrassment. I don’t quite know how to react to it other than to say thank you and to applaud your perception, ’cause you’re right about practically all of it.
