Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh held nothing back while talking to Sean Hannity in an interview set to broadcast Thursday.
In a transcript of comments from Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Limbaugh told the host that he didn’t believe the GOP establishment wanted President Trump to succeed.
“They don’t want Trump to succeed with his agenda. They can’t afford that. I’m not exaggerating here and I’m not trying to say things that will be in a soundbite that Fox replays for the rest of the day,” the conservative radio host stated.
“The lids blown, the gig is over, the joke is revealed if an outsider with no prior political experience can come in and fix messes that people have been promised would be fixed for 30 years, how does that make them look? They can’t allow that to happen,” Limbaugh said.
The talk show host also criticized NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem.
Limbaugh continued, “I don’t think they understand what’s going on. They think they are relating to the majority of their fan base – they’re not. They are driving them away. And I hate it.”
“You know, use something besides the NFL sideline, use something besides the flag, use something besides something that people use to escape everything leftists are trying to force on us,” he added.
Finally, Limbaugh turned his attention to a familiar foe–the media.
The talk show host said, “The media isn’t media. When you think of media they got people out there looking at things where you’re not and they tell you what happened. That’s the news. They don’t do the news. There is no news. There is the advancement of the democrat party agenda which is get rid of Trump and they are totally devoted to it.”
