Limbaugh Dismantles Michelle Obama FAUX Outrage Over Trump Comments
On his number one talk radio show Thursday, Rush Limbaugh took some time to address Michelle Obama’s claim that Donald Trump’s lewd comments from 2005 left her “shaken to the core.” The First Lady’s reaction, said Limbaugh, was particularly disingenuous given her choice of people she’s surrounded herself by. Not only has she invited rappers who make a living off singing about sexually assaulting women, said Rush, her own husband has been caught lewdly showing off his erection to female reporters—and she made the comments while stumping for a woman whose political career has largely depended on her smearing women her husband has allegedly sexually assaulted.
In an obvious attempt at baiting the eminently baitable Trump, Michelle Obama devoted a large chunk of her speech at a Clinton rally on Thursday to condemning Trump for his “grab them by the p****” comments:
MICHELLE OBAMA: The fact is that in this election we have a candidate who over the course of his lifetime and this campaign has said things about women that are so shocking and so demeaning, I simply will not repeat any of them here today … Last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women…I cannot stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted…Enough is enough, this has got to stop right now…This wasn’t just locker room banter, this was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior…This is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This isn’t about politics; it’s about basic human decency.
Later that day Limbaugh responded to Obama’s outrage over Trump for essentially “bragging” about his celebrity-fueled ability to have sexual encounters with women:
LIMBAUGH: You know the people that have been to the White House? How about some of the rappers that talk about their bitches and their hos have performed such lyrics in the White House? But she doesn’t know men who talk and sing about sexual assault. It’s all over hip-hop lyrics and has been for a while! So is assault on the police a feature of some hip-hop lyrics, and it’s been performed at the White House. But she doesn’t know men who talk that way. She doesn’t know decent guys who talk that way. No. She’s only invited them to the White House to perform and then bestowed great honors on them.
