Rush Limbaugh: Obama’s Going To Spend Every Minute Of The Next 4 Years On TV Creating Uprisings Against Trump
The Hill --
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh says President Obama will create “unrest and disunity” often after President-elect Donald Trump takes office on Jan. 20.
“Obama is going to call [NBC’s] Chuck Todd — take his pick — [CNN’s] John King, [CNN’s] Wolf Blitzer … and they will not be able to wait,” Limbaugh said on his Tuesday program. “They’ll give Obama as much time as he wants to rip into Trump and to warn the American people.
“He’s going to try to create all kinds of unrest and disunity and so forth.”
Obama has said that he would speak out after leaving office if he believes it is warranted.
“As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal or battle, but go to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, then I’ll examine it when it comes,” Obama said during a press conference in Peru on Nov. 21.
Traditionally, former presidents have refrained from publicly commenting on their successors’ job performance. Obama and Trump have also been publicly civil to each other during the transition despite their stark differences. During a press conference Friday, Obama said the two have had “cordial” talks.
“Obama is going to do it [criticize Trump] from Washington,” Limbaugh predicted. “And he’s going to do it within hours of whatever Trump does. And he’s going to do it on major cable news.
“And the media is going to be 100 — 1,000 percent behind Obama.”
RUSH: The first moment that Trump does anything that is the unraveling of an Obama agenda item, Obama’s gonna be on TV. Pat Caddell, if he’s mad now, he doesn’t know anything yet, because Obama’s gonna call Chuck Todd, take his pick, John King, Wolf Blitzer, take your pick, he can call any of them, “Hey, you know what, I want to go on TV, grant an exclusive, Trump’s about to destroy Obamacare.”
And they will not be able to wait. They’ll give Obama as much time as he wants to rip into Trump and to warn the American people. Obama’s gonna be doing national speeches, the equivalent of them, to the American people warning them of all the dangerous things Trump is doing. He’s gonna try to create all kinds of unrest and disunity and so forth, unprecedented, no former president has ever done what Obama is likely going to do.
Bill Clinton did it and Algore did it to George W. Bush, but they wait two or three years after the Iraq war started, and they would go to Europe and make speeches ripping into Bush. But Obama’s gonna do it from Washington. And he’s gonna do it within hours of whatever Trump does, and he’s gonna do it on major cable news. And the media is gonna be 100,000 percent behind Obama. It’s going to be divisive, and you just wait.
This is what Caddell is talking about now. There’s no grace, and there isn’t any. It’s just simple manners and cultural, and there isn’t any.
