RUSH LIMBAUGH: There is not one aspect of the Trump phenomenon they understand. They really, really don't. When they talk about it you may hear them get close. But they don't have the slightest idea. There's a Washington Post story today written by -- is it Rachel Orr? Yeah. I don't care who wrote it -- headlined “I asked psychologists to analyze Trump supporters and this is what I learned.” This is Washington Post. They don't know. They haven't the slightest idea why anybody would support Donald Trump. Especially after these Muslim comments. They just don't have the slightest idea. And it scares the tar out of them. So they have to come up with some explanation. They have to come up with something to tell themselves to have it all make sense. And they come up with reasons that they tell themselves that comfort them. That assure them there's really nothing to worry about here. That whatever is going on with Trump really, really is way, way out there, it's such an outlier. And the way they are beginning to do that, is to say that all Trump is, is me. I kid you not. They have never understood this program from day one. They have not understood the bond that exists between me and you. They don't understand why you like this program other than to assign reasons that are insulting to you. You are stupid, you're a mind-numbed robot. You're racist, sexist pigs. Whatever. That's how they comfort themselves, because other than they can't explain it. They can't for the life of them understand it. So it comforts them. Since they think they have me figured out, they think they have me pigeonholed in this tiny little compartment. If they can tell themselves if this Trump phenomenon is just an offshoot of me, well then there's nothing to worry about. It's ok. We just have assign some shrinks to confirm what we already know here. And then we'll move on about our way.
