RUSH LIMBAUGH: Hi, friends. This is great. I have been laughing all morning long. I have been laughing starting with last night. Can we agree that Donald Trump is probably enjoying this more than anybody wants to admit or that anybody knows? So he fires Comey yesterday. Who’s he meeting with today? (laughing) He’s meeting with the Soviet, the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov! I mean, what an epic troll this is. The Democrat Party is going bananas — completely, totally unhinged — on the road to literal insanity.
Do you realize…? Let me tell you what’s happened here. The Democrat Party has once again thrown Hillary Clinton overboard. Hillary Clinton is the most cheated-on woman in America by people in her own party, and it’s happened again. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, stand by; I’m gonna explain all of this. But they have just chosen sides and, once again, Hillary gets thrown under the bus. And not only that, the Democrats are rolling that bus backwards and forwards. She’s finished! She’s over with.
he Democrat Party and the media have made it clear that she is fodder. She is irrelevant here. (laughing) It is amazing. Two days ago, they were all talking about how Comey needs to be fired because of how he was mistreating Hillary, and the Hillary people were running around claiming that Comey’s a bad guy. And now Comey gets fired, and all of a sudden they do a 180!
They really believe Trump fired Comey because he might have been getting close, under the assinine belief that firing Comey’s gonna stop the investigation? How many investigations are there? The House has one. The Senate has one. The FBI’s got their own. Do you know who’s running the FBI today? McCabe, a Democrat! His wife ran for the Senate or ran for governor of Virginia. He’s very close to The Punk, Terry McAuliffe. The guy is a hardened Democrat. He’s now running the FBI. He’s in charge of the investigation to get Trump.
Nothing comes to a screeching halt here just because Comey’s been let go. But the hysteria and the panic and the outrage is rooted in raw hate. The Democrats, wherever you find ’em — in the media, think tanks, don’t care where you find ’em — they’re being consumed by it, folks. They’re literally being eaten alive with an irrational, raw hatred literally absorbing them. Nothing good for them can come of this kind of hate and resulting derangement. Nothing good. This is not how you put together winning movements.
This is not how you build or grow anything, this kind of raw, unfettered hate that they now have lost total control over — and Trump is just taunting them. Trump is just feeding it. He’s doing everything he can to drive them even crazier, and they’re falling for it each and every occasion. Now, nobody’s focusing on the detail that Comey has told Trump three times there’s nothing there. Three times Comey has told Trump, “I’m not investigating you.” They’re looking past that. They’re not even seeing that.
Limbaugh said by firing Comey Trump protected the honor of Hillary Clinton:
LIMBAUGH: Here is Donald Trump. If you ask me, the media should be thanking Trump. The Democrats should be thanking Trump because Trump finally squared it for Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump protected the honor of Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton was mistreated by Comey.
The Democrats believe it, and Trump got rid of the guy who was mistreating Hillary. But that’s not what they’re saying. They don’t care. They don’t care anymore what happened to Hillary. They don’t care what Comey did to Hillary. That’s not even a factor in this. The Democrats are saying, essentially, “We don’t care about Comey costing Hillary the election. What we care about is the Russian collusion conspiracy theory — and for that reason Comey can’t be fired. No matter what Hillary wants. No matter what Podesta wants.
“We can’t get rid of Comey even though we’ve told all of our supporters to hate Comey ’cause he stole the election for Hillar. But we’d rather focus on the Russians stealing election. So Hillary? Sorry, Baby, but you got no weight with us anymore.” They’ve thrown her overboard. Her cause, Comey’s mistreatment of her, not a factor. If I’m in the Clinton campaign, if I’m Hillary Clinton, I’m feeling abandoned, cheated on yet again. Other lines of attack are preferred over a line of attack that would be oriented toward defending me.
Hillary’s charge that Comey interfered with the election just got kicked to the curb. Comey doing the nasty to deny Hillary with that July 5th presser and the October 28th letter just got kicked to the curb. Democrats are fine with that. Got no problem with that. That’s not why they’re mad that Comey got fired. They’re mad that Comey got fired because they wanted Comey to get the goods on Trump. As far as the Democrats are concerned, Hillary’s yesterday’s news.
