Rush Limbaugh took to the air Monday and, once again, ripped into ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos as talk about his $75,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation carries on.
On his Monday radio program, Limbaugh called Stephanopoulos “tainted,” adding that he’s “blown himself” out of much of the network’s 2016 coverage with his misstep.
“We got George Stephanopoulos in bigger trouble at ABC than anybody knows. ABC is more worried about this than anybody knows,” Limbaugh said. “Stephanopoulos was to be, for lack of a better term, the anchor of their entire 2016 presidential campaign coverage. And he has just rendered himself — well, in the game of pretense, where we all pretend the media’s objective, and we all pretend the media is all journalists and so forth, under that umbrella of pretense, Stephanopoulos has blown himself out of the deal.”
While Limbaugh thinks Stephanopoulos shot himself in the foot, thinks ABC will give the “Good Morning America” and “This Week” anchor a pass.
“Now, I don’t believe that’s really gonna be the case. I think ABC is gonna try to find any number of ways to get this guy, Stephanopoulos, back involved in the 2016 campaign,” Limbaugh conceded. “I think the real test is gonna be just how cooperative the Republicans end up being with whatever plan ABC has, because really he was it.”
“He was the guy that was gonna do the debates. He was the guy that was gonna anchor all the coverage, Democrat and Republican,” he said. “He was the guy that was gonna anchor all of the election night, all the campaign, he was it, and now he’s jaundiced, now he’s tainted.”
“In times like this, I don’t think the Clintons are ever gonna doubt Stephanopoulos’ loyalty,” Limbaugh said. “But it still has execs at ABC a little troubled.”
