The insanity of the imploding Republican Party and Fox News Channel continues to spin out into the media world as the number one host on talk radio, Rush Limbaugh has decided to put paydays ahead of principles as he slips into woo-woo world to join Alex Jones in the future Trump wing of the Radio Lunacy Hall of Fame. In a rambling statement akin to the insane and inane commentaries by fringe broadcaster Alex Jones, Rush decided to launch an attack on someone he once called “the most principled conservative in American politics” after Donald Trump went Trumptard on Friday:
So what did Rush Limbaugh do on Friday? He went full Alex Jonestard on Senator Ted Cruz, as if he was ordered to join the rabid attack dogs on command as Mitch McConnell blew the media dog whistle for all conservative talk radio hosts to attack (via the Washington Examiner):
“You know what just happened here? This is alpha male versus I don’t know what,” Limbaugh said on his radio program. “The only reason Trump went here” again, Limbaugh said, was “because Cruz went to the Texas delegation and let it be known that his pique … is over the way Trump talked about his wife and his father.
“So what did Trump do? [He] triples down, finds out where you’re vulnerable and comes right back at you with a sharp knife. This is [an] alpha male,” Limbaugh added.
This attack on Cruz by El Rushbo demonstrates that the firing of Roger Ailes and coming implosion at Fox News along with his friend Donald Trump running for President means that principles are out the window; as is one of Rush Limbaugh’s oldest rules since he became relevant and that was Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment:
Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.
Apparently El Rushbo had decide to go 100% Trumptard and should soon be covering Cruz’s ties to the Canadian Birth Certificate mob, 9/11 Truthers, and UFO’s landing at Doral and aliens exclusively telling he and Trump the future. As Fox News implodes with Ailes departure, so shall Clear Channel‘s syndicated lineup of conservative talk radio hosts tied to the Trump movement and the ratings with it, which means to save the day Rush will eventually end up going full bore Father Coughlin on us long before the election.
Enjoy your ride on the whacko train with Alex Jones, Mr. Limbaugh, I’ll be getting off now and listening to other quality programming now as a result.
