RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much. Put ‘em on.
THE PRESIDENT: How you doing? This is my swan song? If this is all you got for me, I’m moving on.
RUSH: (laughing) No! The show’s yours; take as much time as you want.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m just calling along with President 41 and the former governor of Florida. We’re fixing to have lunch here, and I said, “Listen, we ought to call our pal and let him know that we care,” for you. So this is as much as anything, a nice verbal letter to a guy we really care for.
RUSH: Well, thank you, sir, very much. I’m overwhelmed. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this and how much you’ve surprised me.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, that was the purpose of the phone call.
