Limbaugh on Trump: Finally, A Republican (Other Than Me) Tells The Truth About Hillary Clinton


RUSH LIMBAUGH, 6/22/2016: Well, I have to tell you, my email is overflowing with people calling Trump's speech a home run. People are saying, "Finally! It's about time somebody started telling the truth about Hillary Clinton, and it's not you. Finally somebody that's an official Republican starts telling us what we already know!" People are jazzed by this, according to my email and other feedback that I'm getting. We've got all the audio sound bites coming. Of course, I, as a powerful, influential member of the media, had a transcript of the speech before it was given.

It happens it was a speech given on the prompter today down at SoHo, one of Trump's hotels that he owns. So Trump basically said things about Hillary Clinton that you just don't hear Republicans saying. You've heard them before. You've heard them on this program, of course. You've probably heard similar things that Trump said in other areas. But you just do not hear Mitt Romney say this, for example. You wouldn't hear the Bush family talk this way about Hillary. You wouldn't. You just wouldn't hear it.

You wouldn't hear fellow establishment types talk about this, 'cause it's too close to home for all of them. But Trump can say this stuff as an outsider. He can say this stuff as a nonmember of the elite or the establishment, and it's gonna be interesting to see, because while everything Trump said about Hillary has been said before by people -- and, of course, we have the Peter Schweizer book, Clinton Cash, which Trump quoted from extensively. You don't see things like that happen, either.

It'll be interesting to see how the Clinton camp and the Democrats and the media react to this, because these are the kinds of things the Democrats have grown accustomed to not having to deal with, within campaigns. They know this kind of stuff's gonna be said about Mrs. Clinton, and it's gonna be said by surrogates. It's gonna be said by opposition media such as this program. But they think they've successfully marginalized all the critics, and the evidence is that they're still in power, and when they run for office, they win elections.

So they don't really worry about this kind of criticism no matter how correct it is and no matter how specific it is, because they think that they have created and deployed systems to overcome all of this, all of these details about their operations being made public. But Trump came out and literally fired both barrels. And, I tell you, folks, I think -- and he was not yelling and screaming. It was a prompter speech, so it was quote/unquote "presidential." And I'll also be interested to see if that aspect of this.

But he just came out... You'll hear it coming up in a second. He came out and he said of Hillary Clinton, "She is the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency." The most corrupt person to ever seek the presidency. He said things like, "For the amount of money Hillary Clinton would spend on refugees, we could rebuild every inner city in America." He made it clear to anybody watching that Mrs. Clinton's policies, which are an echo of Barack Obama's policies, are gonna continue to wreak havoc and damage on America's minorities.

These things are just not said. You gotta... I mean, you and I say them, everybody else says them, but in official campaigns where the Clintons are involved, nobody goes this far with them. And you know it as well as I do. We've always wondered why for 27 years. "What are people afraid of? Why do they always pull back?" Well, Trump didn't pull back much today. He pointed out all of the money that she gets from these Islamic states that execute gays and LGBT people.
