Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh tore into the mainstream media during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” over the weekend and explained that no matter how hard the media tries to “destroy” President Donald Trump, they will fail in the end.
“The media did not make Donald Trump, and they can’t destroy him,” Limbaugh declared to host Chris Wallace Sunday.
“They have a formula, they have a blueprint for destroying Republican political officials they don’t like,” Limbaugh explained, citing ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post and USA Today.
“It’s not gonna work on Trump,” he explained. “He doesn’t fit that mold. They’re trying to every day. It’s kind of comical to watch.”
Wallace then press Limbaugh over whether or not Trump’s controversial tweet about the media — where he said the “fake news” media is the “enemy” of the American people — “goes too far.”
“I think that there’s something to it,” Limbaugh replied, explaining that the media isn’t necessarily an enemy of the American people, but rather an enemy of Trump.
“Trump won the election, on substance. Trump did more interviews. He explained his agenda more than any political presidential candidate ever has in my memory. And he has tried to stick to it.” Limbaugh went on to say. “This effort … it’s clearly anti-Trump.”
“Trump has a connection with his voters that most politicians don’t have…and that connection that he has is not anything that anybody else can break — only he can break it,” Limbaugh added.
During the interview, Limbaugh and Wallace also discussed the allegations that Russia played a role in electing Trump, Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration and refugees, as well as Trump’s advancement of domestic policy.
