In a bizarre defense of President Donald Trump, conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh said during a live broadcast that there are forces trying to upend the current administration’s progress. But what turned the most heads is when Limbaugh suggested that former president Barack Obama had an easier time in office because he was Black.
Raw Story writes:
The conservative radio host advised Trump to get to work repealing President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law, reforming the tax code and securing the border. But he argued that it would not be easy because Trump does not have the benefit of being an 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.”
Limbaugh was on Fox News for an exclusive chat in where he praised Big Government critic and The Intercept writer Glenn Greenwald for launching criticism against the “deep state” or long-term government workers resistant to Trump’s policies and aims.
