Rush Limbaugh says that if Hillary Clinton loses the election to Donald Trump it will be because she has made $21 million from speeches to Wall Street banks.
Monday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” the conservative icon said that one of the things Bernie Sanders supporters “despise” so much are Wall Street banks, Clinton has “already been bought” by Wall Street giving credence to recent poll that has “something like 20 percent of Bernie voters claim they’re gonna vote for Trump” if Sanders isn’t the nominee.

Limbaugh began his monologue saying that while the media is not reporting on this now, eventually in their “postmortems” the focus will be on Clinton’s Wall Street speeches.
“Do you realize that this woman, in the last two years, has made $21 million delivering speeches, mostly to banks? Twenty-one mil! I don’t think there’s a speech for less than $225,000 on the list, and they’re all listed. Some of them are as high as $400,000, but it’s generally in that range of 225, 250, up to $400,000. It’s every bank you’ve ever heard of )and then some), and every hedge fund that you’ve ever heard of (and then some). Every investment house that you’ve ever heard of. It’s $21 million in two years, speeches alone.” (RELATED: Limbaugh: ‘Trump Is Gonna Win, Beat Hillary Badly’)
“So what’s the big deal? Well, most of these speeches are delivered before Wall Street firms. Read: Banks. Who do Bernie Sanders supporters despise? Banks. Corporate America. Hillary Clinton is owned by corporate America,” Limbaugh argued. “Hillary Clinton’s presidency, if it ever happens, has already been bought by corporate America, and who knows what the foreign donors are and how many there are. But that’s a $100 million that has been given to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.” (RELATED: This Might Be Why Hillary Won’t Release Her Goldman Sachs Speech Transcripts)
“The Clinton presidency has already been bought — meaning policies, initiatives, what have you, have already been bought — by foreign governments, foreign entities, and United States corporate entities and banks. And this is the kind of thing that your average left-wing Democrat voter is going to learn,” Limbaugh said.
Once Democratic voters learn about Clinton’s speeches, Limbaugh claimed that “it’s gonna tick ’em off.”
Later, Limbaugh claimed that Clinton sang “for her supper” before the Wall Street “bigwigs” and that her tough talk against Wall Street on the campaign trail is all an act in order to get elected.
