On Tuesday, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh accused the media of having an “orgasm” over President Barack Obama shaking hands with communist Cuban dictator Raul Castro. Rush argued the event wasn’t even news and he didn’t need to see Obama shake Castro’s hand to know he’s a “socialist.”
Limbaugh also mocked the president for snapping “selfies” at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.
While Obama had “no business” shaking Castro’s hand, the radio host explained, he wasn’t trying to “send a message” to anybody. “He’s too focused on himself,” Limbaugh said. “He doesn’t get a thrill shaking Raul Castro’s hand — he’s hoping Castro gets a thrill shaking his hand.”
“This is not news. They want it to be news, and do anything to distract anybody from Obamacare,” he added.
After thoroughly slamming Obama as a “narcissist” who is self-absorbed, Limbaugh also hit CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and Chris Cuomo for using Mandela’s death to help President Obama look good and distract focus from all the issues within his administration.
