RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a whole bunch of brain guards, that's what I call them, on Twitter. She has a couple of million of brain guards. Her Twitter followers eagerly defend her from every stupid utterance that she makes. She is shielded and protected from this stupidity and naivety. They prop her up at every opportunity, whereas she might learn from failure and might learn from some of these mistakes -- she's not given the chance. They prop her up, they continue to fill her with this head-expanding, head-swilling idolatry to the point that she is approaching, in her own mind, goddess-like status. And she literally believes, no matter how stupid we think it is, how dangerous we think it is, how ignorant, how laughably unbelievable we think it is, she believes it and she's got these two million Twitter followers that back her up and prop her up and rationalize her with every one of her utterances.
And some people might think, well that's good Rush! An ignorant, spotlight loving, clueless fool who the media promotes as the face and future of the Democrat Party will have a short shelf-life. Well, in a sane world governed by common sense that would be the case. And at some point some might say, Rush this is so bad, this is so embarrassing, that at some point the media is going to be embarrassed and is going to take her down. We are nowhere near that yet.
