Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh accused Barack Obama of dialing up the criticism on his successor because he got caught in the Russia collusion scandal.
Limbaugh pointed out that Obama was “now in the news all of a sudden” and “for what?”
“He’s trashing Trump on corona. He’s blaming Trump for coronavirus. He’s blaming him for the virus,” he explained. “He’s blaming him for the reaction to the virus. He’s blaming him for the chaotic set of circumstances in the lockdown.”
President Trump on Monday made the point that Obama has been speaking out against his administration, something most former Presidents have graciously declined to do.
Trump also suggested it was his turn to start investigating Obama tweeting, “He got caught, OBAMAGATE!”
Limbaugh concurs with the connection, suggesting Obama’s public comments in a conveniently leaked conversation to the media are signs of concern for the former President.
“Why is [Obama] doing this?” he rhetorically asked. “Because it has been revealed that Barack Obama collaborated with the FBI to invent the Russia collusion scandal.”
Obama flailed in trying to blame the Trump administration for what he describes as a “chaotic” response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty. It would have been bad even with the best of governments,” he said.
“It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset — of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else’ — when that mindset is operationalized in our government,” Obama added.
Barack also commented on the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who documents show was essentially entrapped by his FBI and had charges dropped by the DOJ.
Obama claimed that the case being dropped was a sign that “rule of law is at risk.”
Limbaugh advised that “none of this Trump-Russia collusion stuff could have happened without Obama knowing about it,” pointing to a “famous Oval Office meeting on January 5th of 2017.”
That meeting featured former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former DIA Director John Brennan all briefing Obama on the Flynn case.
Sidney Powell, Flynn’s lawyer, was asked if she believed the scandal reached up to Obama based on that meeting, to which she responded, “Absolutely.”
“Obama led a meeting on January 5th, 2017, to plan how to sabotage Trump with the Russia collusion narrative,” Limbaugh charged.
“So it is not a stretch. In fact, it’s factual to say that Obama collaborated to invent the Russian collusion narrative,” he continued. “That’s why Obama is taking all of his time and trying to focus on Trump and his supposedly horrible, chaotic response to the coronavirus.”
Limbaugh surmised, “Obama knows he’s got buddies. He knows he’s got sycophants. He knows he’s got butt kissers in the Drive-By Media. But he still needs to give them somewhere to go.”
“So harping on Trump and Trump’s supposed incompetence is Obama’s way of deflecting.”
The Justice Department shouldn’t lose focus even if Obama’s media pals do.
Earlier today, reports have indicated that Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell declassified a list of former Obama administration officials who ‘unmasked’ Flynn, a possible felony.
The Russia collusion hoax has been thoroughly obliterated at this point. Whoever was behind it needs to pay a price. Obama knows this and he’s lashing out to try and take some of the sting off his own tarnished reputation.
