RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): And by the way, can somebody explain to me how Kamala Harris is an African-American? Her father's Jamaican and her mother is Indian. How does that equal African-American? Same thing with Barack Obama. Obama's not African-American, he doesn't have any history here [inaudible] any of that stuff. And Rashida Tlaib is Palestinian, for crying out -- that'd be like calling a Jewish person a person of color. How is Rashida Tlaib a person of color? She's not. This is all about making them victims.
