RUSH: Edmund in Lexington, Illinois. Great to have you, sir. How you doing?
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Robert Reich, he violated three rules that I know of when you report on a riot. Number one rule is, you don’t say your students weren’t there, ’cause you don’t know, ’cause they were all wearing a mask. That’s number one. This is becoming fake news. Number two, Rush, he made an outrageous claim which people like you and Donald Trump would call braggadocio or something like that. He must know all 38,000 students at that university.
RUSH: I was gonna say, he knew the students, he knows the students at Berkeley, and that’s not who he saw. He really knows 38, 40,000 students at Berkeley, it was absurd.
CALLER: He knows ’em and even if they’re wearing a mask.
CALLER: Rush, the third law theta violated was — and I don’t mean this in any disrespectful way, but somebody who’s four foot eight can’t see what the hell’s going on in a riot. Those are the three rules that I think are violated, and they’re very important.
RUSH: I’m glad you called there, Edmund. Ladies and gentlemen, he’s referring to a couple of sound bites in the first hour of the program, that’s how long poor Edmund’s been on hold here. It’s one of the dangers when people start talking about things that happen hours ago, you may not know what he’s talking about. I’ll set the table for you.
Robert Reich, two sound bites, claimed that he was at Berkeley and these weren’t students. He knows the students at Berkeley and it’s not who they were. These were Breitbart right wingers that were hired to blow up Berkeley. And so Edmund is offering here his three different laws that Reich violated in making these claims. And his third one is, not to be disrespectful, but Labor Secretary Reich is 4.8, four foot eight inches. And Edmund was making the point that when you’re four foot eight, you can’t see what’s going on in a riot.
And if you think that’s making fun of Labor Secretary Reichhhh, you should know that Bill Clinton was the first to do it. Standing next to a giant dollhouse at a Christmas display, he said (imitating Clinton), “Hey, you know what, Labor Secretary Reich could live in that little thing, don’t you know.”
