RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): So I see that everybody's upset, and I mean everybody, I mean people on both sides of the political dividing line are upset that Trump is quoting the pot-bellied dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, in claiming that Joe Biden is a low-IQ individual and the Obama-Biden administration was a disaster. Trump is agreeing with Kim Jong-Un. Everybody just can't believe Trump would do this, he would leave the country, he would go beyond the water's edge, and he would then insult a former president and vice -- they cannot believe -- what do you mean, can't believe? You people have forgotten?
When was it, was it the 2004 presidential campaign, you got Clinton, we got Gore, we got who knows how many Democrats all over Europe running down George W. Bush and the Iraq War. And nobody was concerned about politics ends at the water's edge, or whatever it was. And for crying out loud, how many Democrats, how many members of the media have gone to Europe or anywhere and started ripping Trump? As though Trump is doing something here that's unusual, that is unique, and that has never been done before.
What Trump is doing is turning it around. Normally Republicans do not play tit-fot-tat this kind of thing. Republicans are sitting ducks. Republicans play nice. Republicans play by the accepted rules and the norms of American politics defined by the Democrat Party, the Washington establishment, and the media. And so they can sit there and they can be tarred and feathered by former -- for crying out loud, Barack Hussein Obama was ripping Trump on foreign soil.
