Rush Limbaugh Admits He Called Trump Campaign To Advise Them On Donald Trump-Billy Bush Tape

RUSH: I’ve explained it numerous times, and I’m gonna explain it again. But first, here is an audio recap of me, October 10th, 2016. This is our first show after the NBC Access Hollywood video was released, and that’s the Billy Bush video where Trump and Billy Bush are chatting with one another about the power of celebrities and what that power allows celebrities to do with women.

And that’s the video that had the Trump comment, “Yeah, yeah, they let you grab their” bah bah bah, and that just sent shocks of outrage and disbelief… I mean, it was reverberating, ricocheting throughout every sector of the Drive-By Media, and they thought Trump was toast. And I dare say, many in the Trump campaign probably thought he was toast. I want to admit something here, but first here’s the audio of what was said by me on this program. Listen to all of it.


RUSH: [T]his whole release of that tape — and I’m not excusing what’s on it, but he’s not the only person to ever speak this way. He’s not the only person to ever seek office. He may have said these things, but the Democrats have nominated and elected and celebrated people who do these things. And where is the outrage over it? You know, I find it ironic that the Democrat Party wants to throw down the morality card. The Democrat Party, which is responsible for the dissolution of morality in this country.

The Democrat Party which is for all these progressive new attitudes in our culture, and now all of a sudden acting like a bunch of prudes, acting like, “Oh, my God, I have never been this outraged. Oh, this is just beyond the pale.” These are the architects of this kind of stuff. If Trump were a Democrat, they’d be covering it up and privately inviting him to parties and yukking it up. But the reason this happened — and it’s gonna happen again — they can’t afford. Folks, this is what it looks like. I kept telling people over the weekend when people were asking my opinion on it, I said, “This is what it looks like when you take on the establishment. This is exactly what it looks like. It isn’t gonna be pretty.”


RUSH: I’ll tell you something. I may have told you that I did this on a previous occasion but I don’t remember. I seldom… In fact, I could count on one hand the number of times I have called a campaign or a candidate in the midst of a campaign to either react or even request an interview. I just don’t do it. It’s not an active thing. It’s something in my subconscious. I just don’t do it. It’s not my bailiwick. It’s not my level of expertise. I don’t pretend to know how that business operates. But this time I did. This time I called and I emailed people in the Trump campaign.

I’m not gonna tell you who because that doesn’t matter. What I told them is what matters, and I said, “Whatever you do, do not overreact and grovel. Do not fall prey to this. Do not go on the defensive because of this.” I said, “The one thing that you may not understand,” I’m telling them in the Trump campaign, “is the American people are fed up.” This was an October Surprise. This tape had been in possession of people for years. The Washington Post actually revealed this tape. They’re the ones that released it. NBC had been sitting on it for a while.
