RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): They're doing their best to cover up all of the really fascinating stuff that this WikiLeaks dump has produced. One of the most glaring -- I had to double check this, I wanted to make sure that we could actually find this on the WikiLeaks site, and we have found it on the WikiLeaks site. Mrs. Clinton – well it was John Podesta actually, in an email, admitting that Hillary Clinton has begun to hate everyday Americans. This is an email that Podesta sent on April 19 of 2015, and it was a -- had a discussion on the talking points that Hillary should use in framing her candidacy in order to get a good head start. Why she was running, what was it all about. And Podesta, in this email, says, "I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once. The first time she says, 'I'm running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion.'" So they came up with that phrase, "I am your champion, I will be your champion, you are with me, I am with you," and Podesta says, "we need to do this because Hillary has begun to hate everyday Americans." And he says, "I think if she doesn't say it once, people will notice, and say we false started in Iowa."
Now, I fully expect they're going to have some kind of spin for this to say that, "no, no, no, Hillary didn't think that, Podesta was worried that people would think that," or what have you. They'll try to spin their way out of this, if they think they have to. I actually think they're beginning to feel invincible. I think that they think they've got this won, it's in the tank. They're gloating already, they are partying around the corpse that is, what they believe, is to be the Trump campaign.
