RUSH: My good friends at the Fox News Channel take issue with me.

Dr. Krauthammer said that I was defending Trump, and Charles Lane of the Washington Post said I was defending Trump on the basis that he was asked a hypothetical question.  I wasn’t defending Trump at all.  If I was defending Trump I wouldn’t have categorized what happened as an utter disaster.  I would have categorized it as a dire emergency.  I was not defending Trump.  I was trying to explain why Trump — it’s pointless to go any further with this.  I’ve been doing this since September, and if you don’t want to understand it or accept it, not gonna start now.

He just doesn’t care about this stuff. He’s gotta phone this in. He’s never been a political animal.  He lives in an entirely different world.  He gets things done outside of politics.  He gets things done his own way, but now he’s running for president, that’s in the political arena, he’s gotta wise up and figure it all out, and he hasn’t, in many ways, like how to handle a pro-abortion question or whatever question he gets about abortion. He knows he’s to say he’s pro-life, and after that it’s a wing and a prayer.  And it isn’t gonna cut it.

So when it happens, my effort’s not to defend Trump.  It is to try to limit the damage.  “Well, then, Rush, if you’re really serious, why don’t you just say Trump should get out, because that’s the real damage.”  I know some of you are shouting that right now, “If you’re trying to limit the damage, why don’t you tell Trump –”  I told you yesterday that’s not the way to do it, folks.  Everybody in the world has tried.  People endorse other people, come out and condemn Trump.  All it does is cement the Trump people to him even tighter.  But again that falls into a category of I don’t endorse during primaries and I’m not gonna change the policy and I’ve explained why.

The point of this is not to make a excuses.  The point of this is to try to further explain what I’m about.  Sometimes I feel like I’m not alone, but in a very small club of people whose focus is beating Democrats.  I would vote for Daffy Duck before Hillary Clinton.  I would vote for anybody, but whoever, I don’t care who the Democrats nominate, I’m not gonna vote for ’em and I’m gonna actively campaign against ’em or advise or commentate against them.  I think they pose the greatest threat to the country continuing as founded that we have faced in my lifetime.

The Democrat Party has always represented that threat, but it has never been as potent as it is today.  And they’re seven years into — well, they’re more than seven years, but seven intense years controlling the policy implementation apparatus of this country for seven years.  They’ve gotten closer to their objective than ever before.
