Rush Limbaugh says that Donald Trump “is an internet troll” and he is using it to his success.

Tuesday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” Limbaugh said, “How about this: American politics is determined by trolls on the internet today. It may be is not determined, but internet trolls have a lot of say about what people are thought of.”

Reacting to pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC advertisement that used Trump’s own language directed towards women against him, Limbaugh said that Trump survives the negative ad.

“If Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore], Jeb Bush, [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore], Chris Christie, Ben Carson and even Bill Clinton had said any of the things Trump has said, it would be over for them,” Limbaugh argued. However, “Trump’s not feeling whatever the impact is here. This does not end the Trump campaign today.”

“Trump survives it it’s ’cause he’s a reality star,” Limbaugh suggested. “Trump survives this because he’s real guy; this how real guys talk.”

Limbaugh concluded, “Well, Trump is an internet troll. With all of his tweeting. Trump is one of those guys. Trump has brought the internet troll to the campaign. Now, there’s a negative connotation to internet trolls, but at the same time this is becoming mainstream.”

“This kind of speech pattern, the way people speak, this is common on the internet,” Limbaugh suggested of Trump. “This is the kind of stuff that people say every day, everywhere, on the internet multiple times a day, and nothing happens to them.”
