RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): This is the point. It is not hard to defend the president. Do you know why it's not hard to defend him? Because of who is after him. Every Republican in that town ought to be in unison defending Donald Trump, and if they can't do that could they at least attack the Democrats? Because it's one and the same thing.
Donald Trump has four Republicans -- maybe five, if you count all of those in the House and Senate who routinely stand up for him. The rest of them cower in fear, send out tweets, show up on Fox News, wring their hands, worry about this and that, not realizing the genuine existential battle that we are all in. The Democrats are coming for every Republican in that town just as they are coming for Donald Trump and somehow the Republicans in that town still don't see it, still think they can escape the line of fire. And all they have to do is stay silent on Donald Trump and all of these meanies trying to destroy Trump will magically leave them alone.
It's not hard to defend Donald Trump, you don't even have to defend Donald Trump. But you do have to get on board and understand what we are in. We are in a war. There aren't any bullets flying, but there is a war. The war is over what kind of country this is going to be for your kids and grandkids and my nieces and nephews. That's what this is about. Oh you can smile all you want, but that's exactly what this is about. And the fact that so many Republicans don't want to choose sides or have failed to grasp that this is what it's about is frustrating beyond my ability to express it.
