RUSH: I want you to hear this sound bite from Trump last night at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner. Remember, now, most of the people this crowd resent the fact that Trump even showed up. They’re like everybody else in the establishment — they’re New York elites — the New York Times even referred to the audience as New York elites in its headline. They’re not even happy Trump is there. Well, except for Rudy Giuliani. He was there. Here is just one. It’s about 54 seconds, so we got time squeeze this in.
TRUMP: How corrupt do you have to be to get kicked off the Watergate commission?
TRUMP: Pretty corrupt. Hillary is and has been in politics since the seventies. What’s her pitch? The economy is busted, the government’s corrupt, Washington is failing, vote for me, I’ve been working on these problems for 30 years. I can fix it, she says. We’ve learned so much from WikiLeaks. For example, Hillary believes that it’s vital to deceive the people by having one public policy…
TRUMP: … and a totally different policy in private. That’s okay. I don’t know who they’re angry at Hillary, you or I. For example, here she is tonight in public pretending not to hate Catholics.
RUSH: They never boo at this. Folks, they never boo at this dinner! The reason they are booing is because Trump didn’t follow protocol. He came in there and campaigned. And you’re not supposed to do that at this dinner. You’re supposed to make fun of yourself and tell everybody in there, particularly if you’re the Republican, what a joke you are, and he didn’t do it. He got booed, and I bet it was an honor.
RUSH: Let me ask you this question, folks. The polling data all shows Trump losing in a landslide, right? So what happens if Trump wins? Let’s say Trump wins a narrow victory, say gets 285 electoral votes or 280, 275, whatever. Do you think they’re just get sit there and accept it for the honor of the tradition of accepting the election results?
They’ve got themselves convinced, ’cause of their own polls, that they’re looking a landslide of Goldwater proportions here. They think Hillary may get 500 electoral votes. (laughing) Folks, there will be rioting election night, and we will witness the dignified and accepting tradition of going with the outcome of an election as we have come to expect.
RUSH: Now, let me ask you a question here. Does Hillary Clinton think she’s gonna lose? Do these Democrats think they’re gonna lose? Why in the world is she and her media spending so much time establishing the possibility that the Russian government is trying to give the election to Trump?
First it’s Russia and their 17 independent intelligence agencies and probably 1,500 independent experts of both parties — isn’t that how this works? — who all agree that the Russians are responsible for hacking Podesta’s email and then giving it to Julian Assange at WikiLeaks. Must be really worried what’s in those hacks.
RUSH: I must, by the way, change. I said everybody looked like they’re wearing a corset last night, other than Maria Bartiromo. The rackage on display there obviously was not constrained by a corset.
RUSH: And then he nailed her on this partial-birth abortion. Do you realize there is no Republican candidate that’s had the balls to go after any Democrat on that issue face-to-face like he did with her last night? Never. It has never happened. Even though the Republicans may be loyally pro-life, they pull back, but he just took it to her about abortion.
Let me ask you a question. When Chris Wallace asked this abortion question, did you people start cringing? “Oh, no, jeez, every time this comes up we get smoked, oh, my God.” And he turned it to partial-birth abortion on a dime, which was either brilliant or instinctive or combination of the two, because she had no defense for what he was alleging, and she didn’t even try. Her only defense, when he brought up, “They want rip babies out of the womb a day before they’re born, a week before they’re born.”
And she doesn’t deny it. All she can say is, “I have seen these women. I have met these women, and I’m telling you it is one of the hardest things, I’m telling you it is one of the most difficult things.” She’s therefore on record as supporting partial-birth abortion last night. I will guarantee you that’s the last thing anybody on the Democrat Party side ever factored would happen. That’s why she wasn’t prepared for it.
And it was, I don’t know, as I say, either brilliant or instinctive or a combination of the two, but to take that question on abortion, which has traditionally been a nail in the coffin for a Republican candidate, turn that around to a winning issue for him, a losing issue for her, and you’ll note that nobody in the Drive-Bys is talking about that exchange. They don’t want to go anywhere near it.
And then she lied about Planned Parenthood and all these mammograms they do and all these precancer checks. They don’t do a single mammogram, folks. They do not do them. They don’t do checks for cancer. Their solution to everything at Planned Parenthood is an abortion. She lied through her teeth. I don’t know if Trump knows that or not. Most people who, “Oh, great work, mammograms, care for women.” They don’t do anything of the sort. They harvest baby parts and sell them! We now know that.
But the partial-birth abortion thing, he turned it around on her. She didn’t have a denial and the Drive-Bys aren’t talking about it, and it’s things like that in a debate you’ll never hear any public reaction, no polling on it, but could have a huge impact. We’ll never know. We won’t know until the elections.
