Just one day after radio host Rush Limbaugh vowed to not discuss the battery charge against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski for his alleged treatment of ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, Limbaugh broke his self-imposed gag order.
"My friends, I have decided that going forward that I cannot share with you my opinion on this story," Limbaugh remarked Wednesday, in reference to the Lewandowski story, which he also referred to as "Grabgate," according to Politico.
But it didn't take long for Limbaugh to violate his own gag order. Speaking on his show Thursday, Limbaugh said he didn't know of Lewandowski prior to this scandal, but said he has since "deduced" one thing about him — that he's "hated."
"I haven’t found anybody in the media who doesn’t have vitriolic hate for this guy," Limbaugh said. "That's not an opinion."
"And I think everything flows from that in this thing," he added.
Limabugh was quick to concede that he did just violate his vow of silence. "Ah, ah, ah, I violated the gag. I shouldn’t have said that. I want you to — aw, darn it," he said. "Sorry. I violated the gag."
