RUSH: I’ve had three people today — three people — one of whom was the Official Program Observer, the other two via text message. One of them said, “I hope Trump counts to a thousand before he launches on North Korea.”
Another text message says, “Oh, my God, Rush, could this really happen? Could they really…? Could we really be preparing to launch on North Korea?” And Mr. Snerdley came and said, “I’m really worried about this North Korea thing.” And I look at him and I said, “What’s everybody so concerned about here? This Little Kim guy had been launching his putrid little missiles trying to hit us for how many years now, and then his father prior to that. And they keep plunking in the Pacific Ocean someplace. Look, keep aiming, Little Kim.
I think our message is, “Keep aiming, Little Kim — and if you get close to us, they’re gonna pay the price for it.” The North Koreans should have been taken out years ago. Clinton should have taken them out. You remember Madeleine Albright and some of the ridiculous things she said about the North Koreans, and it then it continued with the Bush administration really just huffed and puffed. I think what Trump is employing — and you leftists ought to love this. I think Trump is employing the madman strategy. I think he’s trying…
These are genuine madmen in North Korea. These people are literally off-the-charts insane, and it might be something as simple as inbreeding. Who the hell knows. These people are odd. You have to admit it, folks. So Trump may be thinking, “You know what? I’m gonna make them think I’m unpredictable. I’m gonna make them think that I am a madman. I’m gonna reverse the table on ’em, and I’m gonna make them think I’m the one that’s unpredictable.” Because they have been able to launch their putrid little missiles here for decades with the knowledge that nobody’s gonna do anything about it.”
Folks, I’m not worried a bit about it. I don’t worry much anyway, but I’m not worried about this.
