RUSH: Here’s the Kellyanne Conway-Jim Acosta bite that I referenced. It’s even better than the way I portrayed it. This happened yesterday afternoon outside the White House. Kellyanne Conway held her own little press conference, and that chief little maggot… I’m sorry, not maggot. I didn’t mean to say “maggot.” I meant to say “gnat.” Jim Acosta from CNN starts asking her a question, and it’s just… You know, the whole premise of the question is snarky. It’s condescending. But more importantly, it is absent any kind of independent thought.
This guy’s nothing but a robot! These media people are nothing but robots! They get programmed every day. Information is downloaded to them, and they all end up repeating the same things. They end up believing and reporting the same narratives, the same premises. Of course, the big one yesterday was that Trump is gonna tell so many lies, the fact-checkers are not gonna have time to do all the corrections. The fact-checkers need to take a bunch of naps during the day, get a lot of sleep the night before, because they’re gonna be busier than they’ve ever been because Trump’s gonna tell so many whoppers.
This is how that little gnat, Jim Acosta, broached the subject with Kellyanne Conway…
ACOSTA: Can you promise that the president will tell the truth tonight? Will he tell the truth?
CONWAY: Yes, Jim, and do you promise that you will?
ACOSTA: I will. Absolutely.
CONWAY: The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
ACOSTA: (sputtering) I… I…
CONWAY: Am I allowed to mention God to you?
ACOSTA: I’m not the one who has the “alternative facts” problem like you do. The president —
CONWAY: Yeah, well, that —
ACOSTA: Will the president…?
CONWAY: You know Jim, I know that’s a cheap —
ACOSTA: (interrupting) Will the president tell the truth?
CONWAY: Make sure that goes viral.
CONWAY: This is why —
ACOSTA: (interrupting) Can you guarantee —
CONWAY: By the way —
ACOSTA: — that the president’s speech will pass a fact-check?
CONWAY: This is why I’m one of the only people around here who even gives you the time of day —
ACOSTA: (interrupting) Can you! Can you guarantee that this will pass the fact-check!
CONWAY: — and let me get back in your face ’cause you’re such a smart-ass most of the time, and I know you want this to go viral. A lot of these people don’t like you.
RUSH: You’re such a smart-ass most of the time, and I know you want this to go viral. A lot of these people don’t like you. She meant other people in the press “corpse.”
