LIMBAUGH: “I’ve Never Seen Roger Ailes Even FLIRT With A Woman”

RUSH: I’m sure that you are all aware of the sexual harassment lawsuit that’s been filed by Gretchen Carlson against Roger Ailes at Fox News.  It’s a lawsuit not aimed at Fox.  It’s targeted specifically at Roger Ailes. I’ve had people email me, “Why haven’t you commented on this?”  Well, A, I actually didn’t think it was necessary, but I’d be happy to.

But before I do, I just want to remind you that, as I knew would happen, there have been a plethora of women employees at Fox who have stood up and said they don’t understand it. They’ve never seen it. They’ve never seen any evidence of it. They’ve never been treated this way. They were shocked and stunned.  Let’s see if I can remember the women.

We’ve had Kimberly Guilfoyle, Sandra Smith, Jeanine Pirro of Judge Jeanine, Ainsley Earhardt.  There’s a bunch of them.  Yeah, Neil Cavuto, even Geraldo has weighed in, and Martha MacCallum weighed in, Greta Van Susteren, they’re all saying that they’re never seen, they’re never been treated this way, they’re never seen any sign of it anywhere.  But Gretchen insists.

Let me throw in, folks. I’ve known Roger Ailes since 1990.  I’ve never seen Roger Ailes even flirt with a woman.  Roger used to host some of the most fun things, Saturday afternoon water volleyball games. He had a home at one time at Croton-on-Hudson, and Rudy would show up with his kids. It was a representative group of the New York Republican power structure. Peter Powers, his family, it was families and so forth, some people that worked for Roger, a lot of women.

When I saw this, of all the people in the world that you would think might have this proclivity, Roger Ailes would be at the bottom of any list.  I’ve never seen him do anything other than interact with great friendliness and respect for women.  It totally took me aback, and when I say I’ve never seen him flirt, I mean it.  I’ve never seen him flirt.  I’ve known him when he was married. I’ve known him when he was single. I double-dated.  I’ve never seen it.  I’ve never seen one sign of this.
