Nationally syndicated conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh attacked Washington D.C.’s “wimpism” during the Thursday airing of his radio show, and referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “zit on the butt of a pig.”
Blasting the D.C. establishment that worried President Donald Trump’s “fire and fury” comments directed at Kim Jong Un’s regime were inflammatory and dangerous, Limbaugh asked his listeners what it all meant.
“What does this mean?” Limbaugh asked. “It means that ‘wimpism’ has taken over the Washington establishment, that ‘wussism’ and ‘wimpism’ and ‘pajama boyism’ has taken over.”
Limbaugh claimed that there’s no reason to be afraid of North Korea, and claimed that Kim Jong Un and his regime was no different than the blemish on the backside of a pig.
“Would we run around acting afraid of a zit on a pig?” Limbaugh asked, noting that despite North Korea’s nuclear armaments, it wouldn’t be able to “hit the side of a barn” with their arsenal.
He continued, “What are we supposed to do, just sit here and wait until the real one is airborne and hope that being gentle and compassionate and unprovocative will stop this lunatic from doing what he’s doing? Is that what we’re to believe here?”
Limbaugh pointed the fingers at “pajama boy” liberals and blamed them for allowing North Korea and other countries like Iran to advance their nuclear programs to begin with.
Trump on Thursday doubled down on previous threats against the North Korean government, and noted that perhaps his initial “fire and fury” comments weren’t “tough enough.”
“They’ve been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years,” Trump said during a Thursday security briefing from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, referring to North Korea and their continued threats of nuclear warfare against the United States. “It’s about time that somebody stuck up for this country and for the people of other countries.”
He continued, “I will tell you this, if North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous. They should be very nervous. Things will happen to them like they never thought possible.”
