RUSH: The first Trump tweet was on Saturday, and I’m on the golf course Sunday, and it’s a mother-in-law convention out there. The winds are like 35 miles an hour. It’s just impossible. So we started talking about things to try to distract from how poorly we were playing, and these guys — and these are, you know, my age, 50 to 55, 60, successful people, and they’re shocked at what Trump said. They think, “Oh, no, the guy’s going off his rocker, oh, my God, oh, my God.”
I tried to bring ’em back down. I said, “No,” that’s when I hit them. “Wait a minute, now. What do you mean? Is it more reasonable to think that it could be or that it isn’t?” And so they started thinking about it the way I was thinking about it. So I think the initial reaction of even some people on Trump’s team, “Oh, my God, you don’t say that, oh, gee.” Because in their minds, you never win accusing Obama or the Democrats of anything. The media’s gonna come out and destroy you.
But Trump is not everybody. Trump doubled down on it today. You better be applauding Donald Trump. If what you just said you want, you better be applauding Donald Trump. Because he’s taking it — this is exactly what he’s doing out there, Pete. He’s doing exactly what they have been doing to him. This whole Russia-rigged-the election thing is a bogus charge and he decided to pick the grenade up and throw it right back at the media-Democrat complex.
And it’s working. They’re now running around like stuck pigs. “What investigation? He wasn’t under investigation.” He wasn’t under investigation? I thought the last six months — “No, no, no, there are no wiretaps on Trump. That’s absurd.” Well, then how do people get hold of his phone calls to these foreign leaders? “Well, I don’t know, but he’s not under investigation. Nobody ever said he’s under investigation.”
Katy Tur, infobabe NBC, was on Meet the Press Sunday saying there hasn’t even been a single report alleging that Trump was working with the Russians. I looked at that. I didn’t watch it live, I was on the way to the golf course. I looked at it later. I said, “Are you kidding me?” This is the same reporter who had not heard that Obama had told the Russians to tell Vladimir to wait, he’ll be more flexible after the election.
