Speaking with host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, radio pundit Rush Limbaugh said the real reason the liberal politicians and media won’t stop accusing President Donald Trump of colluding with Russia is that they want to protect Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Now that the dubious methods and motives behind the warrant used to spy on the campaign are being exposed, the left is desperate to distract the public from, and cloak any culpability and knowledge of misdeeds by Clinton and Obama, Limbaugh said:
“I think this is all politics and, Chris, it hasn’t changed from the get-go. It is about protecting Hillary – and Obama.
“Obama is the primary person being protected, because all of this spying and all of the collusion to destroy Trump happened with his knowledge and, probably, encouragement.
“And the reason Hillary isn’t charged is because that would mean Obama would have to be exposed as participating in this scheme, too.”
During the interview on Fox News, Limbaugh returned to the argument that allowing concealed weapons in classrooms — not demonstrations or blaming the NRA — is the way to stop school shootings, speaking three days after 17 people were killed in a Florida high school.
“The solution is we need concealed carry in schools,” Limbaugh told “Fox News Sunday.” “We need a mechanism to be defensive. It’s better to have mechanisms in schools to stop it when it breaks out.”
This is not the first time the idea of having security guards or perhaps teachers carry guns has been raised, with Limbaugh and others arguing that a shooter could be stopped more quickly, compared to having to wait for armed police officers and tactical units to arrive.
“We have armed security at every public entity except schools,” Limbaugh said.
He spoke minutes after five students who survived last week’s shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school said they are organizing a nationwide demonstration on March 24 to draw attention to the issue, which includes calls for tougher gun-purchase laws.
“They’re very articulate,” Limbaugh said of the students. “You have to feel for them. But anybody really serious about solving this couldn’t care less about the gun angle. The next shooter is out there and probably has the gun he is going to use.”
Democrats have craved legislation that attempts to change Second Amendment rights on gun ownership, and Republican lawmakers are afraid to pass such legislation for fear of losing re-election, at the hands of angry, conservative, gun-owning voters and the powerful gun-rights lobby.
He also disagreed with the idea of banning the AR-15, semi-automatic style rifle used in Florida and other mass shootings.
