RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): From Hillary Clinton to James Comey, to Robert Mueller, to [John] Brennan and [James] Clapper to Christopher Steele, to Fusion GPS, to Andrew Weissman, to Stormy Daniels, to Michael Avenatti -- now I can't mention everybody here, of course. And now Megan Rapinoe and Jeffrey Epstein, the left's search for somebody to bring down Donald Trump continues, and it's amazing to watch it. Every potential king destroyer gets propped up and then promptly knocked down and they go find another one.
Megan Rapinoe is the most recent one. "I'm not going to go to the White House." Wait a minute, you're from the political branch that believes in openness, togetherness, oneness. Everybody getting along. "I'm not going to the White -- I'm not going to grace that place with my presence as long as that ogre's in it. I'm not -- I'll go talk to people who agree with me but I'm -- ." Donald Trump's never said one thing. She said Make America Great Again, all that means is taking America back to where gays and lesbians and trannies were in the closet. Donald Trump's not said one word about LGBTQ in anything. He's never given any indication he believes anything of the sort, and yet here they come trying to pummel him with that? And then trying to impune the whole concept of Make -- look it, Make America Great.
Later in the same show, Limbaugh continued his tirade over Rapinoe and Epstein:
LIMBAUGH: I mean, what's the latest surefire -- "We're going to get rid of Trump with this one, finally we" -- how many surefires have there been in the last two and a half years? The Access Hollywood video -- how many examples of that? "We got him, we got him, we're going to get rid of Trump." How many of those have there been? However many, they don't last long, they fall by the wayside.
The latest one, Megan Rapinoe, followed by Epstein. And Epstein's the big one. The idea that Jeffrey Epstein, known pedophile, donor and buddy to Democrats is somehow going to finger Donald Trump -- figuratively speaking -- is a joke. Jeffrey Epstein's going to bring down Donald Trump? Megan Rapinoe's going to bring down Donald Trump? Robert Mueller couldn't bring down Donald Trump. Andrew Weissman couldn't bring down Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton couldn't do it. Clapper/Brennan couldn't do it. MI5 couldn't do it. CIA couldn't do it. Chuck You Schumer couldn't do it. And now look at Mueller. Mueller doesn't even want to testify. Mueller is turning chicken on everybody. He doesn't want to show up. And I've told you why -- he doesn't want the questions that he's going to get asked or be asked by Republicans.
