The contentious relationship between President Trump, his White House administration and the media is palpable and everyone knows it. Whether you believe it is valid or not, nobody can deny this contention exists. Rush Limbaugh went on his nationally syndicated radio talk show the other day to prophesize that the Trump presidency would likely be the ruin of CNN.
More importantly, that it’s destruction would be his greatest legacy. Limbaugh noted how three investigative reporters from CNN’s investigative unit have resigned already, which is shorthand for they were asked to leave and told that if they chose to go quietly they could resign and if they didn’t they would be fired.
These reporters, which they should not even be called, were let go because they published a fraudulent story about one of the President’s aides Anthony Scaramucci who allegedly met with Russian officials to collude with the Kremlin to win the 2016 presidential election.
Limbaugh said the following about the story,
“It turned out to be total BS, like everything else that CNN has reported with this Russian story. [The media are] like cats. 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.”
When discussing the three people let go because of the false story he 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 You know, people call ’em the Clinton News Network, but that’s kind of outmoded and outdated.”
Limbaugh has stated in the past there are high levels of hypocrisy concerning Democrats and the mainstream liberal media’s handling of the Russia scandal. Not only did CNN falsify a report saying there was a connection between Trump and the Kremlin, the former administration basically did nothing after they proved that Russian officials hacked the electoral college.
The conservative talk show host said,
“So bottom line, Obama hears about all of these efforts and the brave struggle to contain it begins, and Obama meets with experts and advisers. They advise him what to do. Obama gives his own counsel.
At the end of it all Obama decided to do nothing other than call Putin and say “cut it out,” an act of bravery and courage unlike most other in American history. And after telling Putin to cut it out, he then confronted Putin again in China and said, “Stop it or else.” Putin and the Russians quaking away, cowering in laughter at the bravery and courage of Barack Hussein Obama.
For four months — August, September, October, November — they knew this was going on, as far as this story is concerned, at the end of it all, did nothing to stop it. The story even has that quote from an Obama administration insider saying, “Yep, we choked,” and that’s what Trump is saying. He didn’t choke. Obama didn’t choke. He thought Hillary was gonna win! Trump’s exactly right about this. He thought Hillary was gonna win.”
“And Obama even during this period of time, during these four months was telling the people of America, it can’t happen, the Russians cannot successfully tamper with our elections, they’re too widespread, it’s too diverse. There are too many precincts, too many counties, the Electoral College, you wouldn’t know where to go to hack. Obama assuring everybody it couldn’t be done.
This story says Obama was scared to death it could be done, worried very seriously it was being done and decided to do nothing about it. So people are livid at Obama on the left, and that’s gonna be a larger theme going forward as this massive story gets digested by more and more people. But as it gets digested and as more and more people read it and absorb it, it’s going to also be seen for what it is: a giant, big batch of nothing where Trump is concerned. A big batch of nothing.”
There is no question over whether the Russians tried to interfere in our election. The question was whether Trump was involved which has been debunked over and over again. While Democrats insist this is a grievous situation their own President barely punished the country responsible for the hacking. CNN barely if at all reported on it.
Time and time again CNN is caught falsifying stories and incorrectly and unfairly reporting on the administration. The President never ceases to take to social media to call them out on their actions. By the end of his presidency, it would not be at all shocking if CNN was finishing up its flushing down the toilet. They have nobody to blame but themselves.
