RUSH LIMBAUGH: OK, now two things about this The first is, as I said, everybody in the drive-by media is running with this because they think they've got Trump again. They are salivating out there, folks, they are hoping, they've got their fingers crossed, they've doubled down. They are putting this story everywhere. Trump steps in it, Trump racist, Trump bigoted. Trump's anti-Muslim, wants database, wants to go to their mosques, to sign them up, wants to have them carry around symbols on their clothes to tell everybody who they are, and he never said it. And this reporter Hunter Walker retweeted the headline from the AP, the AP headline “Trump says he would absolutely implement Muslim database.” This little know-nothing reporter is so proud of his work today. This is, as I say, journalism 101, this is what they teach you when you want to take out a political opponent or a powerful person you don't like. This is how you do it with innuendo. Again here's what happened. Trump comes off stage, should their be a database system tracks Muslims that are in this country, it's a set up question from the get-go. Nobody has suggested it. Trump says there should be a lot of systems, beyond databases, we have a lot of systems. We should have and today you can do it right now. We have to have a border, we have to have strength, we have to have a wall, and we can't let what's happening to this country happen again. He has not confirmed a database, he has not confirmed registering to Muslims, he has changed the question to his favorite subject the wall, and the border, and keeping illegal immigrants out.
