President Trump Was Rush Limbaugh’s ‘SOURCE’ On Presidential Protocol

RUSH: In the meantime, Spokane, Washington. Chris, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. Mega dittos.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: I want to comment on the protocol story you did. Now, I have to admit that I missed the first part of the story. So I’m not sure what happens inside a building from room to room. But getting on an airplane or getting into a car, the highest ranking person is the last one to get in and the first one to get out. I’m Air Force retired. So I had to deal with it.

RUSH: Okay. You are making a distinction. Here’s what happened. The president and the first lady boarded Air Force One. It’s raining cats and dogs, by the way, and they had to get on with umbrellas. They didn’t park the airplane in a hangar and let people board dry. So they had to board in the rain with umbrellas. The president boarded first, and after he was safely inside, the first lady then ascended the steps. I then got emails from people pointing out that shows what a rude pig Trump is, that he doesn’t even respect his wife enough to let her — in the rain — board the plane before he did. And it proves that Trump is a misogynist and is focused only on himself. And it was that that I was reacting to.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

RUSH: And I said that there is a protocol that when the president enters a room or goes through a doorway, he is always first. You’re saying in the Air Force it’s not true?

CALLER: No. Whenever we carry generals or senators or anybody, the highest ranking person was the last one to get on.

RUSH: Is that also true if you carried the president?

CALLER: Oh, no, I didn’t deal with the president. But if there’s a general and a president, the president gets off the plane first. If there’s a general and a sergeant, the general gets off the plane first.

RUSH: Yeah, that’s true. The president always… Well, of those in the front compartment. The media and the people in the back get off at the back of the plane. Nobody sees that.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: But down the primary stairway, the primary doorway, the president is off the plane first. You’re absolutely right about that. It was Trump who told me this, folks. So that’s my source for this is Trump. Which I know many of you are gonna say, “See, Trump’s stupid! He doesn’t know anything.” Some of you leftists are out there. But that’s my source for this, and he said he was very surprised to learn it. He learned it in the White House. He was standing aside to let women enter rooms and he was taken aside by a protocol expert who said, “Mr. President, you’re supposed to enter first. The president always goes through a doorway first.” He said he still feels uncomfortable with it, but he does it because that’s what’s required.

So that’s my source.
