Believe me, you don't want to miss this. It's gonna be great. It's gonna be great. You don't want to miss this.'"

The commentator said he tried to push back on Trump's invitation, but Limbaugh said "the fact was that this is what Trump wanted ..."

3. See,

That's the big problem with those pesky Fuhrers. They are always bent on getting what they want and when they want it.

11. "'But can't they just do half of what they're gonna do and then send you down here? "
