RUSH: So let me repeat the news that we posted at Fox News this morning. I was on with Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Pete Hegseth on Fox & Friends. Folks, this has been an incredible 11 days. I want to go back and retrace the steps by which all of this happened.
We go back to the day, Fourth of July, around the Fourth of July, when Colin Kaepernick objected to the new Betsy Ross tennis shoes that Nike was gonna sell. And then Nike immediately cancels them. Now, I think immediately that there’s some kind of a PR hoax going on here, PR stunt. I’m not sure how many of those shoes they actually made, and this allowed Kaepernick to earn what Nike is paying him by appearing to be relevant.
So he complains and whines and moans because Betsy Ross represents the slave and racist founding of America and the flag offended Colin Kaepernick. And so Nike, oh, we can’t have anything offending Kaepernick. So they proudly announced they are canceling the shoe!
Well, that makes me mad. I’m sorry, but people dumping all over founding symbols, the founding of this country, irritates me, and particularly if they’re doing it for personal or financial gain, which Nike and Kaepernick were doing. So we have the RushLimbaugh.com store. We’ve revitalized it, we’ve modernized it, and we’ve restocked it and I got hold of my wife, Kathryn, and I said, “How quickly could we do a turnaround on a shirt bouncing off of this?”
That was the Fourth of July late in the day. By Monday, by the following Monday we were able to announce the Stand Up for Betsy Ross T-shirt, and here it is again. I’m holding it up so that you can see it. The Stand Up for Betsy Ross T-shirt. We were able to announce these shirts were in the process of being produced and in stock and available for sale in the EIB Store. That was July the 8th. I mean, we had grand designs, grand hopes. We had no idea what was gonna happen.
