Rush Responds Then Rips Roker: I Never Said Hurricane Was ‘Fake’ News

RUSH: Al Joker’s tweet. We fine somebody Al Joker’s tweet. “To have Rush Limbaugh suggest the warnings about Irma are fake…” I never said “fake,” Al. I never used the word “fake.” “To have Rush Limbaugh suggest the warnings about Irma are fake or about profit and to ignore them borders on criminal.” I didn’t tell anybody to ignore anything, Al. I myself gave my own warnings! I just detailed how the world works, Al, which is undeniable.


RUSH: Well, it was when he talked about pooping his pants at the White House. You think I should? All right. Maimone didn’t sound enthusiastic. I got everybody scared today.

Cookie went back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Sound Bites, is what we call our archive, to January 6, 2015. So four and a half years ago, this is Al Joker, who has said that my suggesting that weather warnings on the hurricane are fake news is near criminal. I didn’t say the warnings are fake. Anyway, Cookie was offended by that. Cookie is very offended when people lie about me, so she went back to our archives, our Grooveyard of Forgotten Sound Bites, found Al Joker from NBC’s Dateline. It was a report about his gastric bypass surgery and a trip to the White House. It was the chief medical correspondent, Nancy Snyderman, and Al Joker here.

ROKER: When you have a bypass and, you know, your bowel’s been reconstructed, you think you’re pretty safe. And I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to, and as I’m walking to the pressroom, I gotta pass a little gas here. I’m walking by myself, “Who’s gonna know?” only a little something extra came out.

SNYDERMAN: You pooped in your pants?

ROKER: I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew —

SNYDERMAN: Which is a common side effect of this surgery.

ROKER: Exactly. And so, you know, I was panicking. So I got to the restroom in the pressroom, threw out the underwear, you know, and just went commando.

SNYDERMAN: And what did that tell you?

ROKER: It told me that I’ve gotta be very vigilant as to what I eat.

RUSH: You might want to try being vigilant about what comes out of your mouth, too, Al. For crying out loud, you’re on NBC graphically describing in the White House — (interruption) Wait a minute, Dawn, are you suggesting this had value for gastric bypass? Oh, she feels bad because this happened to him while at the White House. Fine. How many of you tell NBC and a national audience the things that are unfortunate that happened to you as a means of helping others? I would never admit — but, anyway, that’s Al Joker who thinks that I have been behaving in a criminal way by referring to hurricane warnings as fake. I didn’t do that.
