During a recent segment of his radio show, Rush questioned whether Biden’s DNC acceptance speech, that got rave reviews from the likes of Chris Wallace, Dana Perrino, and Van Jones, was live or taped.
Rush said “Back to the Plugs acceptance speech, and I have to tell you… Let me just review. There are a lot of people, I have come to find out, who want to know if Plugs’ speech was delivered live or was it prerecorded. Now, the assumption I think that everybody had going in was that it was live. Do you think it was live? (interruption) Did you think it was live, Mr. Snerdley? (interruption) ‘Cause we didn’t hear anything else. (interruption) The time came for the speech to happen, the lights went down or came up, whichever, and here comes Plugs and starts the speech.”
He continued “Some people are of the opinion that it had to be taped and that it had to be taped in segments, and the segments had to be edited together because Plugs is not capable of 22 minutes even reading a prompter with no screw ups. This is the prevailing theory. I have heard from some professional video people who say that they have studied it, they’re trying to find out if it was tape or live, based on the premise that there isn’t any evidence that Joe Biden has the ability to go 22 minutes even on a prompter without making a mistake, without some kind of a flub.”
“There was one mistake. And it was a tiny little, nearly grammatical mistake near the end of the speech. And it’s not something that you would even worry about if you’re Plugs’ team to go back and fix because it’s one of those things that went by so fast that you’re thinking most people wouldn’t notice it. And if any critic did notice it and wrote about it, which some did, that it’s not enough to stir up anything anyway. And it isn’t. I can’t even tell you off the top of my head, I’d have to have it in front of me, the nature of the mistake.” Rush added.
“I’m just telling you that there are a lot of people who believe that Joe Biden is not even capable of doing what he did last night. And some have said to me, “Look, Rush. This isn’t complicated. If Biden was able to read that speech with all of that emotion and all of that empathy, if he was able to do that for 22 minutes, then why not go outside and do it on a stage in front of all the people in the cars?” Which you have to admit is a legitimate question” he concluded.
