Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his show Wednesday that Hillary Clinton was the “most cheated-on woman in America,” both by her philandering husband and the Democratic party, which once again betrayed her just before her potential presidential run.

Hillary Clinton, ladies and gentlemen– and I’m kind of sorry to say this. As you know, I tried to keep her campaign alive in 2008 when all of her supposed media buddies and party officials abandoned her. And make no mistake, they did.
And what do you think is going on now? Why do you think all this has come up? They don’t want her now, folks. They want somebody, they want Elizabeth Warren, they want somebody else. But that’s why this is coming up now. And that’s why so many in the media seemingly are lining up in unsympathetic ways. They didn’t want her in ’08 and they don’t want her now, which I know violates every tenet of conventional wisdom, but it is what it is. It’s right in front of our face.
Hillary Clinton is the most cheated-on woman in America. I don’t care how you slice it. Now, you can interpret that as a criticism, you can think of it as kind, unkind, or what have you. But I’m sorry, in just her relationship with her husband alone it’s true.
But then look at the all the other betrayal that she has had to put up with. This 2008 campaign, you remember what that was? In her mind, that was her turn now. She had done her duty, she had backed her husband through all of his scandals. She had given up her life, essentially, given up her own career to marry him, move to Arkansas.
There’s no worse place to go — maybe, other than Oklahoma or Alabama — if you’re at Wellesley, and if you’re in the Northeast, and if you’re in line to become something big in the New York-Washington-Boston axis, and all of a sudden you end up in Arkansas. But she did it, and she stood behind Bill with every one of these female scandals, the bimbos that kept — anyway, you know this. 2008 was to be her payback. This was the party saying ‘thank you.’
First chance they got, they abandoned her. I think that’s what’s happening now. There are media supporters, don’t misunderstand, there are people claiming that she did great yesterday. But it’s not unison, it’s not a majority, and it certainly is not unanimous.
