A listener from Ashburn, Va., called into Rush Limbaugh’s program Friday and got really emotional as he praised the host and President Donald Trump while blasting elected Republicans who he believes – and to an extent, he’s right – are too cowardly to come to Trump’s defense when he needs them most.
That would be to defend the president’s allies, in particular, who claim they have irrefutable evidence that the election was stolen from him.
“So here we go with William in Ashburn, Virginia. Great to have you, sir. Hello,” Rush said as he welcomed the caller to the program.
Note: Sometimes tweets and video load slowly:
“Hi, Rush. It’s great to be here. I’m gonna try to hold myself together and not get emotional here, but I want to hearken back to your statement about Georgia. About the Trump voters,” William began.
And they should be very afraid. Very afraid. Trump and you are all we have left, Rush. We spent our lives voting for these people because they’re not them, and we just can’t do it anymore. We’re tired of being stabbed in the back, Rush. It’s better to have an enemy that’s in front of you than a friend that’s behind you that’s just gonna stab you. They do it every time. We have a Republican-controlled state, and they won’t do an audit of the vote.
They won’t! They just basically told every Georgian that they don’t care. We were in Washington on Saturday, me and my 33-year-old son. We saw more people than we’ve ever seen in our lifetime, ever — and we’re season ticket holders for the Ravens, for gosh sakes. I’ve been in crowds of 80,000 people. I’ve been to Steelers games, for goodness’ sakes. I have never seen so many people. But were there any Republicans there? No. None. None! But…
At that point, Rush jumped in.
“Wait, wait, wait… There were no Republicans? What was this thing that you went to?” the host asked.
The caller responded that he went to the Million MAGA March in D.C.
“A week ago Saturday in Washington, D.C., the MAGA rally. There must have been hundreds of thousands of people there,” William said.
“Okay. A MAGA really. You mean no elected Republicans? Is that what you mean?” Rush asked.
“Yes, I do,” William responded. “Our party leadership, quote, unquote. If this were a Democrat rally, they would all be there. They were there for the anti-Tea Party movement walking hand in hand up the steps.”
William then begins to get audibly emotional.
“No one stands for us, Rush! Only you and Donald Trump. (choking up) God forbid. What do we have left? I love my president. I am not… I am not a revolutionary, Rush, but I would die for my president. This man has given more to this country than anybody, and he has no need to. None. He’s a billionaire. He doesn’t need this,” he added, sounding like he was nearly in tears.
“That’s exactly right,” Rush admitted. “He didn’t need any of this.”
“And, Rush, you’re our last beacon. I mean, I know there’s a place in heaven for you, Rush, and it just pains me every day. And my whole family prays for you because you turned us from being standard Reagan Democrats into real Republicans, and now the GOP turned us all into independents so we can go hide. It’s just disheartening,” William added.
