Rush Limbaugh, the ultraconservative radio host, said on Sunday that the “deep state” is planning to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency.
Limbaugh told Fox News host Chris Wallace that it “is preposterous to believe that the Russians had any effect on the outcome of voting in this country.”
“It’s absurd,” he declared. “There is no evidence. Zilch. Zero. Nada.”
The radio host claims that Trump’s supporters “really, really believe that they were going to lose the country if Hillary Clinton won.”
Limbaugh also praised The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald for pointing out how career government employees, which he described as “deep state,” plan on destroying Trump.
“Glenn Greenwald, at The Intercept, who has got a relationship with [WikiLeakers founder] Julian Assange, I think he actually coined the term,” Limbaugh said. “And I think it works. Who is driving this business that the Russians hacked the elections? It’s the Democrat [SIC] Party, it’s Hillary, it’s Obama, it’s all those people who just can’t accept they lost.”
Limbaugh urged the president to get to work on the policies he talked about because it’s not going to be easy for him since he’s not African-American.
“[Obama was] the first African-American president,” Limbaugh opined. “You have everybody falling all over themselves to acknowledge that, to reward that. Obama was going to get everything he wanted in the first year because if anybody opposed it, they were going to be accused of being a racist or bigot or who knows what.”
