Rush Limbaugh, nationally syndicated conservative radio show host, thinks there's a possibility that the ruination of CNN could end up being part of Donald Trump's presidential legacy.
During Tuesday's airing of his show, Limbaugh's opener said, "Could Donald Trump be the end of CNN? What a legacy that would be."
Noting that three members of CNN's investigative unit resigned — or as Limbaugh put it, were fired — as a result of publishing a story about Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci allegedly meeting with Russians to collude with them over the 2016 presidential election, which turned out to be a highly inaccurate story, Limbaugh added, "It turned out to be total BS, like everything else that CNN has reported with this Russian story."
Limbaugh said that Trump is simply a mastermind playing with the media.
"[The media are] like cats," he said. "He’s got this little red laser light and is just causing them to make fools of themselves and everybody’s laughing at 'em as they’re crashing into walls, the sofa and the floor."
Referencing the ouster of the three individuals involved in the bogus story, Limbaugh said, "So they’re gone, and now we’re told that brand-new procedures have been implemented at CNN to make sure something like this can’t happen again. The president has tweeted, 'What about all the other mistakes CNN has made?' In fact, I think we’re gonna call 'em FNN here, Fake News Network. You know, people call 'em the Clinton News Network, but that’s kind of outmoded and outdated."
