RUSH: I saw something that was... A new round of criticism from Never Trumpers about Trump, and I'm sitting here thinking, "You know, you want to talk about irony?" You know, some of these Never Trumpers out there are ardent conservatives. You know who they are as well as I do. You know the magazines; you know the blog sites.
When you get down to looking at what Trump has done, when you look at Trump's agenda, you're gonna find more conservatism than we had with George W. Bush. You're gonna find more conservatism than we had with George H. W. Bush. You're gonna find more conservatism in the Trump agenda, you're gonna find more conservatism in the items of the Trump agenda which have been implemented already, and the Never Trumpers have a saying now saying, "Yeah, well, maybe Gorsuch," meaning:
"That's the only thing we can credit Trump for: Gorsuch on the Supreme Court." But that's by no means everything. It's gotten so bad... Did you see what Obama said yesterday? I'm getting ahead of myself here in terms of the Stack. Obama actually compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler on the genocide angle. Barack Hussein Obama actually, in a speech, worries about Trump eventually committing genocide on people the way Adolf Hitler did.
You can't find a peep about it in the Drive-By Media. Now, you let some deranged right-winger make a similar statement, and the Drive-By Media drops everything and tries to wipe 'em out and destroy 'em. And here comes Obama. I'll find it after the break and give you actually some of the quotes and details of where he made the statement, but this is unprecedented. And he wasn't cracking a joke. So Obama is terribly worried about Trump.
Trump is more conservative than anything they ever imagined. And as you know, there are a lot of establishmentarians in the Republican Party who hate conservatism themselves and don't like conservatives. You know, Trump proving to be, whether he is one or not, whether... We know he's not ideology, but his political instincts in terms of the agenda items he has and how he's trying to implement them got conservatism fingerprints all over them.
And this has gotta be irritating them even more, because these are the people, these Never Trumper conservatives who have been trying to tell everybody for years that they are the definition of conservatism. They are the rightful inheritors of Reagan (who they didn't like, either) or any other brilliant intellect conservatives. And yet what have they done to implement diddly-squat? Nothing. Here comes Trump, who's implementing serious conservative agenda items, and they still trash him.
Now, Obama piping up that they're worried on the left here that Trump could actually be like Hitler in terms of genocide. I mean, it's a direct reference to the Holocaust.
RUSH: Obama was speaking at the Economic Club of Chicago in a friendly interview with CBS News financial analyst Mellody Hobson. And wait a minute. Mellody Hobson. Mellody Hobson, she's married to George Lucas. Mellody Hobson is married to George Lucas, has donated over a hundred thousand dollars to Obama's presidential campaign. She's called Colin Kaepernick a hero of hers. And she interviewed Obama.
And in this interview, which is described as friendly, "Obama suggested we could have an American genocide akin to what happened in Nazi Germany with Donald Trump as President. The former president was speaking to the Economic Club of Chicago when he made the caustic remark, in comments captured by Crain’s Chicago Business political columnist Greg Hinz.
"According to Hinz, Obama warned Trump’s 'nativism' and distrust of the press would cause our 'democracy to fall apart quickly.' Obama then made the connection between Trump and Hitler, warning '60 million people died,' when the world got 'complacent.'"
And of course this Hinz guy apparently loved what Obama said, because he tweeted out: "Take that, @realDonaldTrump: @BarackObama makes clear his view that a complacent America could be headed the way of Nazi Germany. Read his remarkable comments at #EconomicClub of Chicago."
Holy smokes. And you haven't seen a word of this I will bet you anywhere in the Drive-By Media. Well, it's beyond outrageous. I mean, it is outrageous. But it's so far beyond outrageous. It's unpresidential, it's paranoid, pick your adjective and your descriptive.
Anybody else comparing anybody to Hitler, and here come the Drive-Bys and everybody else descending on you, saying, "It's irresponsible. You shut up. We're gonna make sure you can't speak if you keep talking this way." And they just descend on these people like crazy. Here's the former president of the United States alluding -- not alluding; warning that if we get complacent with Trump and his nativism it's gonna lead to a genocide of 60 million people, like happened in Nazi Germany. Are they in panic, or what?
I think exactly what I thought was gonna happen is happening. I think Obama is a combination of angry, livid, outraged, paranoid that his agenda is being unraveled, because that's exactly what Trump is doing. Trump is unraveling all of Obama's executive action regulations that he can, global warming, the Iranian nuke deal. Trump is literally unwinding everything Obama did, tried to unwind Obamacare.
Donald Trump is trying to erase the Obama presidency, and Obama damn well knows it. I thought this would happen long before now, but it's finally happened. I predicted to you people Obama is gonna go on TV and start warning everybody. I never thought he would compare Trump to Hitler. But he knows what's going on. And he viewed his eight years as just the foundation and then the next Democrat presidents would further it and we would finally at some point transform America. Now it's all being not just unraveled, but erased. And they're livid.
RUSH: The story on the Obama Nazi comments is found it at NewsBusters, and even when I saw it, I said, "Be careful with this. This is so out there." But it looks like every bit of it's true.
