♪ ♪>>Sean: WE CONTINUE SOUTHERN COMMAND, RUSH LIMBAUGH HEADQUARTERS, THIS IS IT. THIS IS WHERE YOU DO YOUR SHOW. EVERY DAY.>>Rush: THERE IS AN ORDINANCE IN PALM BEACH, YOU CANNOT WORK FROM YOUR HOME — WHICH IS FINE, IT IS THE CASE, SO WE BUILD TO THIS, AND IT IS LIKE A LIVING ROOM HOME OFFICE. CAN I DO ONE THING PERSONAL? EVERY TIME I AM ON YOUR SHOW, PEOPLE ASK ME WHAT THIS IS. I GET EMAILS, WHAT IS THIS? IT IS A DIRECT ALIGNED TO THE WEST WING IS WHAT IT IS. [LAUGHTER] NO, THESE ARE COCHLEAR IMPLANTS. I AM 100% DEATH, AND I CAN ONLY HEAR BY IRONICALLY WITH EASE. A QUICK — THE HUMAN EAR HAS 35,000 HAIR CELLS EACH, THEY DETERMINE THE SENSITIVITY OF THE HUMAN EAR. I DON’T HAVE IT PAIRED MINOR DAD, THEY LAY DOWN AND DIED. AUTOIMMUNE. SO I HAVE EIGHT MAN-MADE, BIOLOGICAL ELECTRODES — BIONIC ELECTRODES, THAT TRIED TO DO WITH 35,000 HAIRSTYLES DO. AND IT IS A MIRACULOUS THING. IF THIS HAD HAPPENED — IF I LOST MY HEARING 15 YEARS BEFORE I DID IT, THE END OF MY CAREER, THE TECH HAD NOT BEEN INVENTED. IT IS REALLY FORTUNATE, AND I LOOK AT IT AS SOMETHING TO BE EXTERNALLY GRATEFUL.>>Sean: I REMEMBER IN THE INTERIM TIME — NOT TO GET TOO DISTRACTED, WE HAVE A LOT TO TALK ABOUT. I DO RADIO, AS YOU DO. I DO NOT KNOW HOW IT IS POSSIBL POSSIBLE. MOST PEOPLE IN RADIO, DJs, TALK SHOWS, I AM CRANKING THAT THING UP. DRAMATIC HEARING LOSS AFTER 30 YEARS.>>Rush: I DID THREE MONTHS TOTALLY DAFT, I COULDN’T GET SURGERY DONE BECAUSE I HAD AN INFECTION. SO YOU RELY ON HOW YOUR VOICE FEELS. AND YOU HAVE TO CONSCIOUSLY TELL YOURSELF, DON’T — WHEN YOU CAN’T HEAR, YOU SPEAK UP. AS YOU HAVE TO TELL YOURSELF — I ASKED OF THEM, ASK THE DOCTORS, IF I DON’T DO THIS, CAN I SPEAK NORMALLY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE? THEY SAID NO. IF YOU CAN’T HEAR YOURSELF SPEAK, YOU WILL END UP SOUNDING LIKE SOMEONE WHO HAS NOT HEARD BEFORE, SO THAT YOU HAVE TO DO THE IMPLANTS. THEY WERE REALLY A CAREER SAVER.>>Sean: THANK GOD YOU ARE STILL HERE AND GOING STRONG. IT WAS A BIG DEAL, FOR THOSE OF US THAT FOLLOWED BEHIND YOU, IT WAS A BIG DEAL. YOU DID FORGE A PATH FOR ALL OF US. AND WE ALL OWE YOU A DEBT OF GRATITUDE. THAT IS WHY, REALLY, I WANTED TO BE HERE. EXPLAIN THE TRUMP PHENOMENON. MAYBE WE HAVE A MORE UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE BECAUSE WE BOTH KNEW HIM WAY BEFORE HE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT RUNNING.>>Rush: RIGHT. I DON’T THINK IT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND THE TRUMP PHENOMENON AT ALL. IF YOU ARE NOT POISON — I USE THAT AS AN EXAGGERATION — IF YOU ARE NOT AFFECTED BY INSIDE THE BELTWAY OR WASHINGTON ESTABLISHMENT THINKING, UNDERSTANDING TRUMP IS EASY. IT IS ELITE VERSUS REAL PEOPLE. IT IS SOMEBODY THAT IS FEARLESS AND WILLING TO FIGHT AGAINST THE THINGS THAT NO REPUBLICAN HAS BEEN WILLING TO FIGHT AGAINST OR DEFEND. HE HAS AN ENGAGING PERSONALITY. HE DOESN’T OFFEND PEOPLE — THE LEFT THINKS HE DOES BECAUSE THEY ACT IF I DID, BUT TRUMP JUST MAKES PEOPLE LAUGH. THEY CAN’T GET OVER THE FACT THAT HE IS LIKABLE. BECAUSE THEY HATE IT. THEY DESPISE IT. ARE WE ALLOWED TO MENTION COMPETING CABLE NETWORKS? BECAUSE YOU DOMINATE. BRIAN STELTER ON CNN.>>Sean: HUMPTY DUMPTY. THAT IS WHAT I CALL HIM.>>Rush: HE IS ACTUALLY BEEN SOMEWHAT NICE TO ME, THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS TO IT. BUT COMPLAINING THAT THE PRESIDENT IS TALKING TOO MUCH, THE PRESIDENT IS IN THE MEDIA TOO MUCH. DEMAND ACCESS — BECAUSE HE IS POLLUTING THE AIR. HE IS LYING, DISTORTING, NOT GIVING US ENOUGH TIME TO CATCH UP WITH HIM AND TO CORRECT HIM. JUST KEEP GOING, PRESIDENT TRUMP. HE IS DOMINATING THESE PEOPLE. HE IS FRUSTRATING THEM. THEY HAVE LOST THEIR MONOPOLY. THE ELIZABETH MOORE AND, THE POCAHONTAS, PROVES THEY CANNOT SHAPE PUBLIC OPINION ANYMORE VIA NARRATIVE, AND THEY ARE FRUSTRATED AS THEY CAN BE ABOUT THAT.>>Sean: HE DOESN’T NEED THAT.>>Rush: KNOW. PART OF WHAT IS GOING ON HERE, I BELIEVE, ALL OF THIS — I DO CALL IT ABNORMALITY. WE ARE UP AGAINST PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER, ABNORMALITY, THAT IS DISGUISED AS POLITICAL ISSUES.>>Sean: WE TALK ABOUT THE MEDIA — IT HAS NEVER BEEN THIS ABUSIVELY BIASED.>>Rush: IT IS NOT EVEN BIASED, WE ARE SO FAR BEYOND BIASED. THESE PEOPLE ARE PART OF THE AGENDA. I THINK THEY RUN IT. I THINK THEY ARE THE PEOPLE THAT ORCHESTRATED, RUN IT, EVEN GIVE MARCHING ORDERS TO EACH OTHER. THE POINT IS, TRUMP HAS THEM BAMBOOZLED. I THINK PART AND PARCEL OF WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS TRYING TO DEMONSTRATE TO THEMSELVES THEY STILL HAVE THE POWER TO SHAPE PUBLIC OPINION VIA NARRATIVE. IT IS CAUSING ALL OF THESE PEOPLE IN THE LEFT TO GET MORE AND MORE AND MORE EXTREME. I AM JUST RELYING ON THE FACT THAT AVERAGE, ORDINARY AMERICANS, LIKE YOU AND I ARE, ARE IS REPULSED AS YOU AND I ARE BY THIS BEHAVIOR THAT THEY ARE ENGAGING IN, THE DEMANDS THEY ARE MAKING ON DECENT, GOD-FEARING, AMERICA-LOVING PEOPLE. WE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. AND YET WE ARE PORTRAYED AS THE PROBLEM. WHERE THE ENEMY TO THESE PEOPLE. IT IS REALLY SCARY. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LOSE, GO BACK AND LOOK — IF WE LOSE 2016, IF THEY GET THE HOUSE, I’M JUST GOING TO TELL YOU, WHATEVER TRUMP WANTS TO DO IS GOING TO STOP. IT IS GOING TO BE PARALYZED. IT IS GOING TO BE NOTHING BUT IN EVERY HOUSE COMMITTEE THAT IS RELEVANT, INSPECTIONS, INVESTIGATIONS, SUBPOENAS. THEY ARE GOING TO GO BACK AND TRY TO GET KAVANAUGH THROWN OUT. IT IS GOING TO BE NOTHING BUT TWO YEARS TO GET EVEN WITH TRUMP FOR HAVING THE AUDACITY TO WIN. AND THE BUSINESS OF THE NATION IS GOING TO BE BROUGHT TO A SCREECHING HALT. IN THE MEANTIME, THEY ARE GOING TO TRY TO GET RID OF THE TAX CUTS. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO SUCCEED AT ANY OF THIS BECAUSE THE SUN IT IS GOING TO BE IN THE HANDS OF MITCH McCONNELL, I ESPECIALLY HIM COLONEL. HE MOVES SO SLOW, BUT HE IS SPEEDING UP.>>Sean: HAD A GOOD RUN.>>Rush: I STILL THINK TRUMP — THAT IS AND WHOM I HAVE COME IN TERMS OF THE POLITICS OF THIS, I STILL HAVE HIT IMPLICIT TRUST. I THINK TRUMP KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.>>Sean: WE HAVE PUT ALL OF THE SUCCESS IN TWO YEARS. OBAMA, ECONOMICALLY, THE FIRST PRESIDENT THAT NEVER MET 3% OF GDP GROWTH IN HISTORY.>>Rush: THIS IS THE KEY. AMERICA DOESN’T DESERVE THAT. AMERICA IS SO OPPRESSIVE, SO MEAN TO MINORITIES. AMERICA DOESN’T DESERVE SUPER POWER STATUS. THIS IS WHY I WANTED OBAMA TO FAIL. IN HIS VIEW, IN THE AMERICAN LEFT’S VIEW, AMERICA IS THE PROBLEM IN THE WORLD. AMERICA DOESN’T DESERVE –>>Sean: APOLOGIES. 13 MILLION FOOD STAMPS, AND POVERTY.>>Rush: MORE PEOPLE VOTING DEMOCRAT, MORE DEPENDING ON GOVERNMENT CARE THEY WANT THAT, SEAN.>>Sean: WE HAVE 14 STATES, RECORD LOW UNEMPLOYMENT. LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT SENSE ’69, 1 MILLION MORE DON’T KNOW MY JOBS THAN PEOPLE ON UNEMPLOYMENT PAIRED LOOK AT WHO IS BENEFITING. AFRICAN-AMERICAN ON EMPLOYMENT, LOWEST EVER. HISPANIC ON APPOINTMENT, ASIAN UNEMPLOYMENT, WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE UNEMPLOYMENT PAIRED ALL OF THE SUCCESS, YOU ARE SAYING, STOPS IF THEY GET THE HOUSE.>>Rush: LET ME ASK YOU A CIVIL QUESTION. WHY? YOU HEARD HIM GO THROUGH THESE STATISTICS. THE FACTS OF THE ECONOMIC ADVANCEMENT. WE HAVE MORE JOBS THAN THERE ARE JOB OPENINGS. A MILLION MORE JOBS THAN THERE ARE OPENINGS. THAT HASN’T HAPPENED SINCE 2017. WHO WAS PRESENT THEN? IT WASN’T OBAMA. THE THINGS YOU JUST HEARD, SEAN GO THROUGH, THE DEMOCRATS ARE ANGRY AT ALL OF IT. WHY ARE THEY HAPPY? FOLKS, WE ARE IN A ROARING ECONOMY. MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER CAN GET THE JOB THEY WANT TO, THEY ARE GETTING READY AND SAYS. WE HAVE PEOPLE FREE TO START THEIR OWN BUSINESSES. EVERY OTHER ASPECT OF LIFE IN AMERICA IS ON THE UPSWING, AND A POLITICAL PARTY AND ITS VOTERS ARE MAD ABOUT IT. WHY? WHY COULDN’T YOU BE HAPPY? THE ANSWER IS VERY SIMPLE. IF IT HAPPENS AS A RESULT OF INDIVIDUAL APTITUDE AND APPLICATION AND SET OF GOVERNMENT MAKING IT HAPPEN, THEY ARE GOING TO OPPOSE IT. THIS THE GREATEST THREAT, ECONOMIC ACTIVITY, ECONOMIC GROWTH, SELF-SUFFICIENCY, SELF-RELIANCE, PEOPLE LEARNING THAT THE OLD RULES OF WORKING HARD AND APPLYING YOURSELF PAY OFF, BIGGEST THREAT TO THE AMERICAN LEFT IN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY THAT THERE COULD BE. LET ME ASK YOU THIS. WHY ARE THEY HAPPY ABOUT THIS? EVERYBODY OUGHT TO BE –>>Sean: BECAUSE THEY LOSE THEIR POWER.>>Rush: OF COURSE. IT ANSWERS ITSELF.>>Sean: YOU HAVE BEEN A LEADER IN THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT IN AMERICA –>>Rush: I DON’T KNOW.>>Sean: NUMBER ONE — AUDIENCE SUSTAINED AND BIGGER.>>Rush: THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT IS LED BY NEVER-TRUMPER.>>Sean: IF THEY HAD THEIR WAY, WHERE WOULD WE BE?>>Rush: NOT HERE. HILLARY WOULD BE PRESIDENT IF THEY HAD THEIR WAY.>>Sean: IF YOU BELIEVE GOLDWATER WAS A WAY OF, IF YOU BELIEVE REAGAN WAS A WAVE — MEANING THE ADVANCEMENT OF CONSERVATIVISM. WHERE DOES DONALD TRUMP — I LOOK AT HIS POLICIES. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A CONSERVATIVE. NEVER CHANGE MY VIEWS. I SAY IT DIFFERENTLY, NEW CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT MY FUNDAMENTAL, CORE BELIEFS HAVE NEVER CHANGED. NOR HAVE YOURS. ALL OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE SAID HE IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE. WHERE? BESIDES TRADE, AND I DON’T EVEN THINK TRADE — SHE NEVER PLANNED A TRADE WAR.>>Rush: HE IS IMPLEMENTING. I KNOW THESE PEOPLE, I GOT TO KNOW THEM IN 30 YEARS.>>Sean: BUCKLEY LOVES YOU.>>Rush: I WILL TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT HIM IN A MINUTE. I THOUGHT YOU WERE TO ASK ME WHERE HE WOULD BE ON TRUMP. THE ANSWER TO THAT IS PRETTY SIMPLE. BUT THEY DON’T LIKE US TRUMP — HE IS IMPLEMENTING ISSUES THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE DEVOTED LIVES TO BEING PASSED, AND THEY ARE VOTING AWAY FROM IT. NEVER MUST HAVE BEEN ABOUT THE ISSUES. IT MUST BE ABOUT THE PROPER MANNERS AND MAKING SURE WE DON’T OFFEND OUR LIBERAL FRIENDS IN WASHINGTON AND ALL OF THAT. TRUMP DOES ALL OF THAT. I CAN’T ABIDE THIS, THIS IS SO OFFENSIVE TO ME, I CAN’T DO THIS. MEANWHILE, EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT, EXACTLY AS CONSERVATIVES SAID IT WOULD, AND THEY DON’T WANT TO BE ON THE BUS.>>Sean: I SAY THIS TO PEOPLE AND — HE GOVERNS AS STRONG A CONSERVATIVE AS WE HAVE SEEN IN OUR LIFETIME.>>Rush: HE DOES. I DON’T THINK THE DIVIDE IN AMERICA IS LEFT AND RIGHT SO MUCH.>>Sean: CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES.>>Rush: CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES –>>Sean: TAX CUTS, JUDGES, BORDER SECURITY.>>Rush: IT IS THE TRADITIONS OF THE FOUNDING, ARE WE GOING TO GO MARXIST LEFTIST? THIS IS WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. WE DON’T HAVE IN COMMON WITH THEM, SEAN. I STILL HEAR THESE PEOPLE SAY WE NEED TO CROSS THE AISLE TO COOPERATE — WHAT DO WE HAVE IN COMMON? NAME SOMETHING WE HAVE IN COMMON WITH ANY OF THE PEOPLE ACTING TO DESTROY KAVANAUGH? WHERE IS THE MIDDLE GROUND TO COMPROMISE WITH THEM ON KAVANAUGH. THEY DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO DENY HIM — ALLOW HIM TO PROCESS.>>Sean: ZERO. ENDO- CORROBORATION.>>Rush: THEY WANT TO DESTROY HIS LIFE. AND HIS FAMILY, HIS CAREER, HIS FUTURE, AND THEY TELL US, THEY ARE THE PARTY OF COMPASSION.>>Sean: WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE, WE HAVE SAID IT BEFORE, CLARENCE THOMAS.>>Rush: YOU SEE IT EVERY DAY. HE WANTED EVERY ELECTION.>>Rush: DONALD TRUMP — I’M SURE YOU HAVE TAKEN YOUR HITS. ANYBODY THAT THEY DETERMINE IS AN EFFECTIVE MESSENGER OF ANYTHING THEY DISAGREE WITH,
