Rush Limbaugh addressed a New York Times hit piece published two days ago in which he was implicated in a dinner that was allegedly set up to bring together Fox News, Marco Rubio, Rush Limbaugh and others to collude on the Senate amnesty bill. The Times didn’t come out and lie, they suggested and insinuated. It was cleverly done and it was meant to stir distrust and more division.
Rush remembers the dinner that took place in 2011, five years ago and two years before the immigration-amnesty bill. He doesn’t remember it being about immigration or Rubio being part of it. Rubio did ask to come on Limbaugh’s show TWO YEARS LATER but the New York Times only used part of Rush’s quote and suggested the interview was soon after.
This is what the Times published as evidence Rush was possibly in on it.
Mr. Rubio publicly and privately worked to assuage the fears of Mr. Limbaugh, who on air called him a “thoroughbred conservative” and assured one wary listener that “Marco Rubio is not out to hurt this country or change it the way the liberals are.”
On Jan. 29, 2013, the same day Mr. Obama highlighted immigration in Las Vegas, Mr. Limbaugh had Mr. Rubio on as a guest to talk about immigration and called him “admirable and noteworthy” during a warm conversation about the bipartisan immigration plan.
“I know for you border security is the first and last — if that doesn’t happen, none of the rest does, right?” Mr. Limbaugh lobbed.
“Well, not just that,” swung Mr. Rubio. “That alone is not enough.”
The conversation concluded with Mr. Rubio saying: “Thank you for the opportunity, Rush. I appreciate it.”
“You bet,” Mr. Limbaugh said.
This is the rest of what Rush said that the corrupt Times left out. Rush discussed the full quote on his show Monday:
Rush said he has had Schumer on his show, Romney, and others but he generally doesn’t have guests. He rarely has guests unless it’s a president or vice president. He constantly says no to people who want to get on his show. His show is about the people and he doesn’t want to be beholden or have others beholden.
Too many jumped on this without waiting to hear the truth. Breitbart called it a “bombshell”.
I don’t know if there was any collusion with Fox or their hosts but once one lie is proven, nothing else can be regarded as truthful. It’s a bombshell of BS.
A caller to Rush’s show on Monday said he didn’t take the Times article as saying he was colluding on immigration reform and he wanted to know why Rush did go so easy on Rubio.
Listen to Trump’s response and consider how popular Rubio was and how he was considered a conservative firebrand by everyone. He went up against the machine and won.
In this next clip, Rush explains why he called Rubio a “solid conservative” a few weeks ago.
I knew this was more leftist codswallop.
