Flashback: Schumer, Obama and Hillary Advocating for a Wall

RUSH: You know, I was talking to the vice president about all of the video and audio sound bites of Pelosi and Hillary and Schumer and Obama advocating for a wall, promising to spend money for a wall as far back as 2005, 2009. Here's a little montage.

I mean, the sound bites are much longer than this. But we've put together just 21 seconds. I want you to hear this: Chuck Schumer from 2009, Hillary Clinton 2015, Barack Obama from 2005. It's No. 26.

SCHUMER 2009: Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.

HILLARY 2015: I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.

OBAMA 2005: We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked.



RUSH: Here, play it again. I want people to get this. Chuck Schumer from 2009, Hillary Clinton from 2015, and Obama from 2005. These are all Democrats. In 2009, Obama's president. In 2005, George W. Bush is president. In 2015, Obama is president. They're all for a wall. They're all for paying for a wall. They all announce why we need a wall. Listen again...

SCHUMER 2009: Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.

HILLARY 2015: I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.

OBAMA 2005: We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked.

RUSH: Okay. So what's new? What's different? What's changed? By the way, the money that was on the table to build a barrier (a wall, a fence, whatever) back when these three were discussing this, at one time got up as high as I think $56 billion. Now, Trump is talking about $5.1 billion, and you want to talk about who's playing politics here? It's these people.



This is simply not gonna happen because Donald Trump would benefit from it. Remember, this is about denying Trump reelection 2020. It's about getting Trump out of office before 2020. It is pure politics -- pure, 100% politics. These people are the biggest, blatant... You will not find greater examples of hypocrisy than this.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We don't even have to go way back. Here's a story from the AP, January 20, 2018. One year ago: "Schumer Pulls Back Offer of $25 Billion for Trump's Wall as Immigration Fight Continues." As recently as a year ago, Schumer was okay with $25 billion. The "2008 Democratic Party Platform Calls for More 'Infrastructure' on the Border, More Agents," and more barriers. The Democrat Party platform, 2008.
