During his Wednesday program, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh blasted Hillary Clinton’s claim that the economy needs a “toppling” of the 1 percent.
The New York Times first reported on Clinton’s remark during an off-the-record conversation with economists. (RELATED: Hillary Vows To ‘Topple’ The Rich In Off-The-Record Meeting)
“This is why this woman bores me. She doesn’t anymore mean that than if she claimed today that Planned Parenthood’s an enemy and she wants to shut it down, and she’s converting to pro-life. She wouldn’t mean that, either,” Limbaugh said. “She’s gonna say whatever she wanted to say to shore up her credentials as an extreme leftist because the extreme left is now the mainstream of the Democrat Party.”
“There is no left wing of the Democrat Party. The whole Democrat Party is an extremist bunch of radicals now, and Mrs. Clinton must think that,” Limbaugh said. “I mean, to come out with some asinine comment like topple the 1 percent? She’s the 1 percent! The people she was talking to are in the 1 percent.”
“The people that she’s fleecing that donate to her foundation and her husband’s foundation are the 1 percent. For crying out loud, it’s asinine,” Limbaugh continued. “But she figures there are enough idiots out there that will think she can relate to them by saying that she’s gonna go out and she’s gonna take their money.”
“‘She’s gonna punish ’em, I like Hillary,’ is how it’s supposed to work. It’s just mind-numbing in its audacious ignorance,” he said.
“She’s out there, and she said something literally idiotic, and I know she doesn’t believe it,” he said earlier in the show. “It illustrates that she’s pandering, that she thinks that after all of these years of Obama that there’s still some doubt that she is extremist leftist enough.”
