RUSH: It was just 24 hours ago, ladies and gentlemen -- a mere 24 hours ago -- that I was behind this very Golden EIB Microphone informing you that I had come across a bit of news. The bit of news was that big-time Republican donors had ordered to take out Donald Trump in the debate last night.
We all made a mistake. We assumed that the orders went out to the candidates. But the candidates did not make one move toward taking Donald Trump out. The broadcast network did; the candidates didn't. I mean, let's review. The first question from Megyn Kelly to Trump was, "You've called women fat slobs, pigs, whatever," and he said, "No, just Rosie O'Donnell." The place starts laughing and so forth, but she's not amused, and she tells him, "No, it's more than that."
She keeps going on and on and on about it, and says, "Is this the right kind of temperament?" Whatever it was. Trump was clearly caught entirely off guard by it, and even today he said, "I'm not... I don't know when I've ever said this stuff." Who knows if he writes all of his tweets that he posts. You know, this is the danger that when you start going in the social media stuff and tweeting stuff and maybe you hire somebody to do it for you.
I happen to know Trump does not use a cell phone, folks. He does not do e-mail, for this very reason. I was told long ago when I first started playing golf with the Trumpster, he does not use a cell phone, or at least he doesn't do e-mail. I was kind of surprised, frankly, when I saw that he started tweeting. My first question is, "Does he write these tweets himself or does he have somebody on his staff doing it just because it's hip and it's hot and he wants a presence in it?"
