RUSH: Hillary Clinton wanted to take Trump out and she wants people to think that Trump is a low borrow reprobate, the lowest of the low. He’s basically human debris walking around out there, doesn’t know what he’s doing, he’s unqualified, he’s unsuited, he’s not smart enough, he’s dangerously placing the country at risk, all this stuff, plus he’s a racist. What that actually was was an appeal to moderate Republicans to abandon Trump.
It was an appeal to the Never Trumpers. And the message was, “I’m giving you a route to abandon this guy. I’m characterizing this guy, Trump, as the biggest shred of human debris we’ve ever seen, and I know you don’t want to be associated with this. I know you don’t want to think that Trump represents your party, and you don’t have to now. I am giving you a way out. All you have to do is agree with me, which should be easy, and we can join together and defeat Trump.” That’s the unspoken attempt that Hillary was making yesterday.
RUSH: One of the most controversial aspects of the presidential campaign has become, “Did Hillary Clinton rig opening a can of pickles on the Jimmy Kimmel show earlier this week?”
A major controversy — (laughing) — has erupted. Kimmel had her on, she was gonna prove that she’s strong enough to be president. So he brings out a jar of pickles and sees if she can open it. She goes through this massive gyration like she’s just using every bit of strength she can. She rotates her whole body and finally she cracks the lid, and the audience applauds. And conspiracy theorists are claiming the whole thing was rigged, that the lid had already been loosened. (interruption) You think it was rigged? I’ve got two people here on the other side of the glass, you think the Hillary, Jimmy Kimmel bit was rigged?
There you go. Even my staff, ladies and gentlemen, has now gone fully immersed into the notion that the campaign is a reality show. It’s entertaining, and you watch it to see what kind of outrageous thing is gonna happen next. You don’t judge anybody in the middle of it ’cause you don’t want it to end. You just watch it and you absorb it.

RUSH: Now, the CEO of Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the CEO is the daughter of Joe Manchin, who happens to be a Democrat senator from West Virginia. And for some reason the Drive-By Media have ignored both of these details reporting on the EpiPen story. They have ignored the ties that Mylan Pharmaceutical has with the Clinton Foundation and they have ignored the ties that the CEO has to a Democrat Senator, i.e., she is his daughter.
Now, according to the New York Post: “Records available on the website of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation reveal Mylan, the company that manufactures the EpiPen, has donated up to $250,000.” Also, the company behind EpiPen, Mylan, has partnered with the foundation on projects and donated money to various projects in addition to the foundation. What else here?
“On Wednesday, Clinton released a statement blasting her family foundation’s donor. ‘Over the last several years, Mylan Pharmaceuticals has increased the price of EpiPens by more than 400%. That’s outrageous — and it’s just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers.”
It’s exactly what the left says about every corporation, I don’t care if it’s Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Retail, big whatever. She said, “It’s wrong when drug companies put profits ahead of patients, raising prices without justifying the value behind them.” Well, then here’s a chance for the Clinton Foundation to actually step up and do something. Why don’t the Clinton Foundation, why don’t they stand up — here’s what they could do. Hillary and Bill could announce a press conference and tell everybody that they are going to give away EpiPens to everyone who needs one in the next two or three weeks out of embarrassment for the fact that this company is a huge donor to the Clinton Foundation and has given them $250,000 when that money could have been used to make the product cheaper.
CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush. Longtime listener, big time fan.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Appreciate you having me on. Just wanted to say of our brave men who fought over there in Benghazi: Do you think Hillary might have done something if they would have contributed possibly to her foundation?
RUSH: (pause) Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho. I had to pause there for a second. You know, now, normally the reaction to you would be, “That’s cheap. How dare you, Bobby.”
CALLER: Of course. Of course.
RUSH: But you have to stop and think. You have to stop and think. If the Benghazi families had donated to Hillary — look, I’ll tell you why the question is worth it, because it brings home how Hillary operates. And it does seem that’s so beyond good taste, how in the world, but it’s exactly how she operates, and it illustrates that. That’s the kind of question that gives people pause. I mean, the instinctive reaction is, “Don’t be silly. You really believe that Hillary Clinton would have sent some forces in to defend them if she knew they were donors?” And the cynic asking that question, the minute the question is out of his mouth, pauses. Because it’s well within the realm of possibility given everything we know about Hillary. They sell access to everything else. Interesting. I appreciate it, Bobby.
RUSH: Jackson, Mississippi, campaign event, teleprompter, out of the blue Trump…
TRUMP: Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.
RUSH: Did you hear that crowd reaction? Now, it was mixed. There was a lot of support for it, and there was shock. And, in fact, if you saw it on screen left, to Trump’s right as he’s standing there, there’s a woman, I think she’s wearing a white dress, she’s brunette, and the moment that Trump says, “Hillary Clinton is a bigot,” her face contorts in such a way that you can tell she doesn’t know if she’s supposed to clap or not. She doesn’t know at that moment whether she’s supposed to applaud this or not.
But this crowd ate it up. You go to the Drive-Bys, “That’s just so unbecoming of a presidential candidate. That’s just not the kind of words we want to hear. That’s so beneath what we are all accustomed to. You just don’t see that. You don’t see one candidate calling another candidate a bigot,” particularly a liberal Democrat.
But Trump did. (interruption) Well, I know, Hillary’s been calling him worse than that for weeks. But that’s okay, because that’s the conventional wisdom, that Trump is unsuited, he’s unfit, doesn’t have the right temperament, any of that.
