Rush Limbaugh said on Friday that America “better come to grips with the fact” that violence similar to Dallas will be on display at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.
“There’s one more thing about his event in Dallas and this is going to be risky,” Limbaugh said on “The Rush Limbaugh Show” in the wake of five Dallas police officers being killed and seven wounded. “I could very easily just not say what I’m going to say and let it happen– well it’s going to happen anyway at this point. But I think everybody better come to grips with the fact that this is not the end of anything here.”
“[T]he next target is going to be the Republican National Convention and then possibly after that the next target the Democrat National Convention because there’s going to be huge numbers of people in both places and there’s going to be lots of cameras and the media is going to be in both places,” Limbaugh said.
Later, Limbaugh said, “It wouldn’t matter who the nominee is. It could be Trump. It could be Jeb Bush, it doesn’t matter.”
He went on to note, “I would love to be wrong about it. Do not misunderstand here. I’m not one of these people predicting this, hoping it does happen because it will be exciting man. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
