RUSH: Ashley Judd, actress and left-wing activist, says the tragedy of Donald Trump’s election victory is far worse than when she was raped.
Okay, now, how do you deal with this? I mean, this is clearly — this is not sane. This is not rational. This isn’t anywhere close to rational. She said, “It remains for me the worst thing that’s ever happened to me in my lifetime,” meaning Trump’s election. “Raped as a child — bad. Re-raped by a political system that ordains a clown — really bad.”
She made the claim in a Huffington Post video titled, “Ashley Judd describes being triggered by Trump.” And she’s wearing one of those pink vagina hats, only they’re not called vagina hats. Remember those things from — by the way, you know, there’s another big women’s march. Wait ’til you hear who the three organizers are. Just wait ’til you hear it. I’ll get to that in due course.
RUSH: But when Ashley Judd said she feels raped by the election of Trump, what she really means is, she feels raped, worse than when she actually was raped, she feels raped by all of us who voted for Trump.
RUSH: Do you want to live a better life? Do you really want to have a normal, optimistic outlook on life every day? Don’t watch that stuff! Don’t watch CNN. Don’t read the New York Times. If you look at Drudge and if you see headlines that portend the end of the world tomorrow, don’t click on it. Just avoid the crap that pollutes the daily so-called news that comes from left-wing news organizations. You will be amazed. And it doesn’t take long, either. Just two days. You go on a Drive-By Media fast, two days of it, and your outlook on life will be dramatically improved.
You won’t believe it. And I know you say, “Well, I gotta stay focused on what the opposition is doing.” No, you don’t. I’ll do that for you. I’ll tell you what they’re up to — and as a bonus, I’ll nuke it! You don’t need to expose yourself to it. That’s one of the many reasons I’m here. I know how to do this without it ruining my life. I know how to do this without it ruining my day. That’s why I’m here to run interference, to be the boundaries for you. But I don’t watch half of this stuff anymore, because it’s so predictable, and it’s so boring — and, frankly, a lot of it is really just lame.
It’s just lame, some of the analysis that you get to explain things out there. And there is more speculating — you know, everybody thinks they’re a political tactician. So you’ll take, like, this Obamacare-versus-tax story. You won’t believe the number of blogs that you will read with the possibilities of what this means. And it’ll all be wild guesses rooted in esteemed political analysis. And none of it is gonna be based on anything factual beyond what is known. And it’s all to get clicks, and it’s all to get eyeballs and this kind of thing.
RUSH: I’m telling you, the more success Trump has, the greater the energy poured into opposing him is gonna be. If you are thinking that at some point in these next four years that the opposition to Trump is going to lay down arms, so to speak, and join him, that’s never gonna happen.
The real leadership of the opposition is never, ever gonna do anything but continue to ramp up efforts to stop Trump or destroy Trump. Now, common, ordinary, everyday Democrats, not leftists, there may be — if the agenda gets implemented and this country starts humming on the domestic side and if jobs come back and if the economy gets up to 3% growth and is sustained and the job market expands accordingly and people’s wages go up, it won’t matter.
But if you think that people today, like Hollywood, are ever gonna sing Trump’s praises, it’s never gonna happen, folks. It’s only going to get worse. And they know it at the White House. They’re not expecting these people to be won over. That’s not why Trump’s doing anything he’s doing. They don’t expect the establishment types to one day say, “You know what? You’re right, Mr. Trump, this is great. We like what you’re doing.” It’s never gonna happen. They don’t expect that to happen.
There may be, as I say, average, ordinary everyday Americans who come home to the cause, but the leaders of the establishment and the power brokers in it and the global establishment, they’re never, ever gonna say, “You know what? We were wrong and Trump is right. And we need to get behind him.” They’re never gonna become what they think Trump is, a populist, a nationalist or what have you. It’s gonna be a battle. That’s why you better be glad Trump’s the guy waging it. He’s the one guy you could have elected who’s not going to cave on this stuff, certainly not in the first month, first six months, first year. They’re just getting warmed up.
I still am of the opinion that the establishment types and the left, they still don’t know what they’re dealing with here. They’re still trying their time-honored blueprint for destroying political figures they don’t like, primarily Republicans.
RUSH: You know, I was just looking here at the nominations voting process, at Oscars.org. You know what? These people do not have any voter ID laws. There are no voter ID laws for the Oscars. Anybody could vote. “Final Balloting Process. Finals voting is also conducted via online and paper ballots.” Hell, the Russians could hack either one of those, easily.
“During finals, all Oscar categories are on the ballot for voting members. After final ballots are tabulated, only two partners of PricewaterhouseCoopers know…” Well, the Russians could hack them, too. You know, this mystery is deepening, because it turns out that Emma Stone — who won the Oscar for Best Actress for La La Land — had the card. She had it. There’s no way Beatty could… Well, not true. Do you know that there are two sets of ballots?
These PricewaterhouseCoopers people come out each having a briefcase. In case one of them is a bomb and blows up, they have the results in a second briefcase. Identical envelopes, identical briefcases, identical results, supposedly. So there’s two envelopes for every category that gets an Oscar. Emma Stone had one, so it’s possible Beatty could have had his, but somebody had to give it to him. Why don’t they just give everybody an Oscar? Moonlight and La La Land. Just give ’em all Oscars and soothe any hurt feelings.
EDITORS NOTE: This Is 2 Segments Combined For Your Convenience
RUSH: So was the Oscar election stolen last night? I mean, really, who won? How do we really know? I mean, with so much fake out there now, and you can’t count on polling data, and you can’t count on election results. I mean, just listen to what the Democrats say. I mean, they told us first that La La Land won, and then they said, no, no, Moonlight won. And there’s rampant confusion everywhere.
And I would like to be the first to call for an investigation and an independent special prosecutor to look — they had millions of people around the world watching last night. Can you imagine if you are a La La Land fan, can you imagine what they did to you last night? You had everything invested in La La Land winning. It was gonna dominate your spirit and feelings of Hollywood and entertainment for the next year. And the cast shows up almost like Hillary showing up to do her acceptance speech and then somebody from an accountant firm pops up and says Warren Beatty blew it.
And how did Warren Beatty blow it? Well, I will explain that when we get to it. So then they had to take the La La Land cast — by the way, I didn’t see any of this as it happened. Somebody help me out, when they finally said that, no, the election was actually stolen by Moonlight, when the Moonlight gang came up there, did the La La Land cast and crew leave?
So both candidates in effect were on stage as both were announced as having won the Best Picture Oscar. Were they hugging each other? I mean, was the La La Land crew, the actors and producers, after having that Oscar taken away from them on live TV, did they smile about it? Was there good cheer? Was there understanding? Was there tolerance? And did they welcome the Moonlight crew to the stage? Did they stand up there together, or was it a cluster?
You saw it. I didn’t. Nobody in there saw it? Oh, we’re all flying blind here. Well, I’ll have to research this and find out. I’ve seen some still shots of Jimmy Kimmel looking clueless, but that’s not unusual. It’s hard to get much from the still shots. But let’s talk about the picture that they tell us won. How do we really know? How do we really know who won the Best Picture award? They’re telling us it’s Moonlight. Has anybody seen it?
