LIMBAUGH: Donald Trump OWNED The Emmys

RUSH: We observe cultural shifts here. This is one of the things that I spend a lot of time doing, and I’ve noticed some things. I didn’t watch the Emmys last night, but hardly did anybody else, either. We may have a record low viewership for the Emmys last night. I don’t care what you say, if you did watch it, if you’ve heard about it, sure, it was a three hour or however long it went bash, humiliate, embarrass Trump fest. But that’s not the way to look at it. The way to look at it is Hollywood, in its most prestigious awards show for the television industry, devoted all three hours to Donald Trump. Donald Trump, in a strict owning of media time, if you simply look at it the way a lot of people do, the old saw, it doesn’t matter what they say, as long as they spell your name right, Donald Trump owned it.

The best thing these clowns could do — and they’re, I think, incapable of it — is to ignore him. But the reason they won’t, the reason they did that last night, they’re talking to each other. They are expressing their bona fides to each other. They’re letting everybody in the industry know that they’re all on the same “we hate Trump” page. That’s the purpose of it. So as to not be mistaken, not to be confused, they don’t want the powers that be in Hollywood to think there’s anybody in there that is in the Trump camp. So they went overboard making sure everybody in that industry knows they hate Trump.

It was political correctness on display. I don’t think anybody’s gonna portray it that way, but that, to me, is what it was, ’cause it was so over the top, it was unnatural. People are not capable of that much hatred. It had to be, some of it had to be manufactured, and the reason it was is because they are talking to each other. They are assuring each other that they are still in the politically correct place to be, and that is Trump hatred.

And, in the meantime, the audience continues to shrink. The early numbers make it look like it could beat last year’s record low by just a little bit, but even if it’s not last year’s record low, it is way, way down from what the Emmys used to be. And I just know, folks, do not doubt me on this, that the people who did watch it are not all Trump haters. And the people that watched that show I’m sure had to, “Okay, okay, we get it, you hate Trump.” In other words, there’s going to be some degree, some level of backlash that will never be recorded because pollsters and Drive-Bys will not even think that that display last night could backfire.

They just ready to give it gold stars and so forth. But you know what I noticed? You the audience, way, way down. The numbers, I haven’t seen ’em yet for this weekend’s action in the National Football League, but my guess is it ain’t gonna shoot up by very much if it does. There just wasn’t that much compelling, although last night with the Emmys with a record low, the only thing new on last night that might have been competition was Ray Donovan on Showtime, and that wouldn’t be much. So maybe Sunday Night Football had a good night. We’ll find out.

But overall, the Emmy thing last night, I didn’t watch it. I don’t think a lot of people did. I think people are getting sick of things. I think we’re getting sick of Hollywood. I think people are getting sick of football, or they’re wearing out on it.
