RUSH: Now, the CEO of Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the CEO is the daughter of Joe Manchin, who happens to be a Democrat senator from West Virginia. And for some reason the Drive-By Media have ignored both of these details reporting on the EpiPen story. They have ignored the ties that Mylan Pharmaceutical has with the Clinton Foundation and they have ignored the ties that the CEO has to a Democrat Senator, i.e., she is his daughter.
Now, according to the New York Post: “Records available on the website of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation reveal Mylan, the company that manufactures the EpiPen, has donated up to $250,000.” Also, the company behind EpiPen, Mylan, has partnered with the foundation on projects and donated money to various projects in addition to the foundation. What else here?
“On Wednesday, Clinton released a statement blasting her family foundation’s donor. ‘Over the last several years, Mylan Pharmaceuticals has increased the price of EpiPens by more than 400%. That’s outrageous — and it’s just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers.”
It’s exactly what the left says about every corporation, I don’t care if it’s Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Retail, big whatever. She said, “It’s wrong when drug companies put profits ahead of patients, raising prices without justifying the value behind them.” Well, then here’s a chance for the Clinton Foundation to actually step up and do something. Why don’t the Clinton Foundation, why don’t they stand up — here’s what they could do. Hillary and Bill could announce a press conference and tell everybody that they are going to give away EpiPens to everyone who needs one in the next two or three weeks out of embarrassment for the fact that this company is a huge donor to the Clinton Foundation and has given them $250,000 when that money could have been used to make the product cheaper.
CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush. Longtime listener, big time fan.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Appreciate you having me on. Just wanted to say of our brave men who fought over there in Benghazi: Do you think Hillary might have done something if they would have contributed possibly to her foundation?
RUSH: (pause) Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho. I had to pause there for a second. You know, now, normally the reaction to you would be, “That’s cheap. How dare you, Bobby.”
CALLER: Of course. Of course.
RUSH: But you have to stop and think. You have to stop and think. If the Benghazi families had donated to Hillary — look, I’ll tell you why the question is worth it, because it brings home how Hillary operates. And it does seem that’s so beyond good taste, how in the world, but it’s exactly how she operates, and it illustrates that. That’s the kind of question that gives people pause. I mean, the instinctive reaction is, “Don’t be silly. You really believe that Hillary Clinton would have sent some forces in to defend them if she knew they were donors?” And the cynic asking that question, the minute the question is out of his mouth, pauses. Because it’s well within the realm of possibility given everything we know about Hillary. They sell access to everything else. Interesting. I appreciate it, Bobby.
RUSH: Jackson, Mississippi, campaign event, teleprompter, out of the blue Trump…
TRUMP: Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.
RUSH: Did you hear that crowd reaction? Now, it was mixed. There was a lot of support for it, and there was shock. And, in fact, if you saw it on screen left, to Trump’s right as he’s standing there, there’s a woman, I think she’s wearing a white dress, she’s brunette, and the moment that Trump says, “Hillary Clinton is a bigot,” her face contorts in such a way that you can tell she doesn’t know if she’s supposed to clap or not. She doesn’t know at that moment whether she’s supposed to applaud this or not.
But this crowd ate it up. You go to the Drive-Bys, “That’s just so unbecoming of a presidential candidate. That’s just not the kind of words we want to hear. That’s so beneath what we are all accustomed to. You just don’t see that. You don’t see one candidate calling another candidate a bigot,” particularly a liberal Democrat.
But Trump did. (interruption) Well, I know, Hillary’s been calling him worse than that for weeks. But that’s okay, because that’s the conventional wisdom, that Trump is unsuited, he’s unfit, doesn’t have the right temperament, any of that.
RUSH: On the town hall last night on Fox, during the discussion of immigration and deportation and, quote/unquote, amnesty, Trump turned to the crowd — it’s a town hall meeting — and asked them what they think he ought to do. And you’ll have to admit that a mild form of chaos ensued because there was disagreement among the crowd, and it looked for a while like they had lost control of the show.
Now, I’ve had people — just so you know, Scott — tell me… It’s all anecdotal, just to give you something to bounce off of here. A lot of people tell me they don’t like that. They don’t want a candidate that turns to the audience and asks what he should do. They want a candidate who knows what he’s gonna do, is confident about it, and is out trying to persuade other people to agree with him. But you are making my point. Trump turns to the people, “Hey, what do you…” And they love it. They actually love it because that to them is Trump listening to them because he cares. Right?
