I don’t think there’s really another way to characterize what he apparently said on his show today. According to Politico (I don’t have audio yet, but will work to get it as soon as I can), Limbaugh spent time today addressing the furor caused by his remarks yesterday about the Michelle Fields/Corey Lewandowski incident, some of which we covered here.
Apparently, in addition to saying that the whole thing was a political attack on Trump, Limbaugh went on to say that the fact that CNN was airing the video at all was evidence that CNN wants to “destroy Trump” (which is a ludicrous assertion for anyone who actually watches CNN, as I do almost all day every day), and basically complained that it was unfair for CNN to have a Cruz spox and a Kasich spox up against Katrina Pierson to discuss the issue yesterday.
As you might have predicted, people were not amused, and so Rush today basically threw in the towel:
The Lewandowski-Fields incident “may not be the only subject about which I have to muzzle my own self here, and silence myself at least from the standpoint of opinions,” he contended.
Rush Limbaugh’s job is to be correctly and properly understood when it comes to conservative politics. He’s been doing it for about 3 decades now with no apparent problem in making himself understood. And I think he’s making himself perfectly well understood during this primary season as well. He just doesn’t like the fact that for the first time in his history, a significant portion of his audience is pushing back, and so he’s trying to walk the line and pretend that he doesn’t think what he clearly does think.
