Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the resignation of Mike Flynn as national security advisor, on his nationally-syndicated program, making the popular point, “What did Barack Obama know?”
Limbaugh considered that the conversations in question between Flynn and the Russian ambassador happened in December, before President Trump was sworn in, during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
Limbaugh points out that questions need to go all the way back to the previous administration, and if they knew of any leaks before President Trump. Limbaugh’s research shows that Flynn had worked for the Obama administration a number of times. “In September 2011, Mike Flynn was promoted to lieutenant general assigned to the office of the Director of National Intelligence by Barack Obama. On April 17th, 2012, President Barack Obama nominated Michael Flynn to be the 18th director of the Defense Intelligence Agency,” Limbaugh stated in today’s show.
Limbaugh is also critical of the fact that democrats and the left are allowed to get away with illegal offenses and corruption without resignation.
Here is a part of the transcript from today’s show:
So we have a resignation over a phone call, a freaking phone call. The Democrats don’t resign when they’re caught red-handed with their hand in the till or in bed with an intern or whatever else transgression the Democrats engage in. There are no resignations and there are no demands for resignations. And if you want to compare the Trump administration to the Obama administration, you just need to ask yourself one question: Why did you vote for Trump?
Eight years of the Obama administration, it may not have appeared to be chaotic and it may not have appeared to be amateur hour and it may not have appeared to be out of control, but it was in terms of its agenda. The Obama administration was trying to dismantle the United States of America. That’s why everybody voted for Trump! And the people that supported Obama and were trying to dismantle the United States of America are still out trying to do it and now doing so via taking aim at Trump and his administration.
Flynn I guess didn’t want to be a distraction, especially given how worked up the Drive-Bys are. ‘Cause the Drive-Bys are seeing a Russian under every bed. The Drive-Bys are seeing a Russian at every computer keyboard. You know, they walk in their own offices, see a keyboard, they see a computer, and they think the Russians are there.
Now, the media is saying that Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador back in December could have left him open to blackmail. Are we serious about this? Flynn was open to blackmail? Who was it that the Drive-Bys wanted to see as president in? That would be Hillary Rodham Clinton, who could have been blackmailed six ways from Sunday by the Russians and who the heck else we know.
