Trump called in to the Hannity show tonight, sounding sullen, like he didn’t really want to be doing it. All Trump did was talk about Rush Limbaugh for awhile, then he sputtered and stalled out. There’s no fight left in this guy. Trump knows the rest of his life is going to be a nonstop nightmare.
During that same show, Hannity and his guest Dan Bongino spent time lovingly slobbering all over Limbaugh, as if he were some kind of uplifting hero instead of the ruinous monster that he was. It served as a reminder of just how incredibly deranged these types are. If they see pure filth like Limbaugh as a good guy, no wonder they view the real good guys so negatively.
Limbaugh spent decades advancing his career by opportunistically spreading vicious lies that got a lot of bad people elected, whose corrupt policies in turn got a lot of Americans killed. That’s on top of the damage he did to women survivors, people with neurological diseases, and so on. The sympathy I’m feeling today is for Limbaugh’s victims.
