LIMBAUGH: ‘Saudis Were A Little Bit More Tolerant Than The Catholics’ With Melania And Ivanka

RUSH: No. Come on. There’s a very simple explanation for this. Are you telling me that you don’t know? (interruption) Everybody’s asking me, “How come Melania and Ivanka wore the black veils meeting with Il Papa, and they didn’t cover their heads and faces when meeting with the Saudis and the Saudi king?” Well, that’s easy. It’s real simple. The Saudis do require all women in such positions to wear the hijab, the burqa, the whatever. Melania and Ivanka were given an exemption, which, if the exemption’s granted, you’re home free. The Saudis chose not to enforce it. They had too much riding on this. I mean, look, the arms they were buying?

I mean, this is a big deal. This is a huge, huge deal for the Saudis. If all it cost ’em was a couple of women not wearing the hijab. Fine and dandy. Small price to pay. Do you know what else is part of this deal? (interruption) They’re in there laughing. Look, I realize I sometimes am naturally funny. I wasn’t trying to be there.


RUSH: King Salman and his son, the princes, decided to forgo the demand that Ivanka and Melania wear the headdress.

But at the Vatican, they insisted on it. The Vatican protocol, Vatican rules are that women must wear the veil in the presence of the pope during official ceremonies like this. It’s not necessary when the pope is doing an audience with visitors and people from around the country where there’s a group up there, but an official quasi-visit state like this, the women have to wear veils and the Vatican insisted on it, and that’s why. So you could say that the…? (laughing) Do I want to go there? (laughing)

You could say the Saudis were a little bit more tolerant than the Catholics. (laughing) Just kidding.
