RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): I know that more and more of you are just tuning media out, and I totally -- including Fox News -- I totally understand that. If there was ever a day, if there was ever a time, for devout, exclusive listening to the EIB network, then today it is. 

So there's Biden, and I'm watching this, and his overall demeanor is one of great sadness. He's very down in the dumps. Very, very disappointed. And it's all an act, of course. It's designed to convey the seriousness and the sadness that is associated with the COVID-19. And the sum total of the Biden COVID plan is you will wear a mask. You're going to wear a mask, folks. A mask is magic. A mask, said Joe Biden, is not political. No, no, no, no. If we all wear a mask, why, we're going to bring our country together. Oh yeah, we are going to unify if everybody just wears the mask, why, we are in fact city. We're going to fix it all. We're going to fix everything Donald Trump broke. We are going to reunite. We're going to bring the country back together. And in the process of wearing a mask, guess what you're doing? You are giving something back. 

You notice the left always thinks that you, the people that make the country work, always have something to give back. They never think that the rioters and the looters have anything to give back though. But you do. Somehow you owe -- you owe the country, according to today's Democrat Party and the left, you need to give something back. And so you can do that by wearing a mask. If you would just wear the mask, why, it's magic what would happen. All would come together and we'd all -- we would all make statements that are not political. I think it's just a disappointing tragedy what has happened here.
