Rush Limbaugh is one the biggest voices in conservative media.
The top rated talk show host is also one of President Trump’s biggest supporters.
So he stunned Americans when he confessed something shocking about Donald Trump.
Limbaugh made his yearly appearance on Fox News Sunday this past weekend.
During the course of the interview, host Chris Wallace pressed Limbaugh on his ability to influence White House policy.
Some pundits believe Limbaugh was the driving force behind the 35-day government shutdown.
Limbaugh dismissed this notion as ridiculous.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Sunday denied that he wields any substantial political influence over President Donald Trump, criticizing the notion as a false narrative pushed by the president’s opponents to make Trump seem incompetent.
“If these people in the media, Chris, really thought that I was telling Trump what to do and when, they’d be calling me, they’d be asking me about it, they’d want to get down to the dirty details,” Limbaugh told host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”
“People don’t really believe what they’re saying about this,” Limbaugh said. “It’s just another effort to continue to try to diminish the president, diminish Trump, as somebody who doesn’t know what he’s doing, can’t do it without guidance from the so-called wacko right.
“It’s not at all the way he’s governing, and there isn’t anybody doing what I do that has a thing to do with actually making policy for this president,” he said.
Going back to Eisenhower, the media dismisses Republican Presidents as doddering fools unable to formulate their own thoughts until their advisors tell them what to do.
That is especially true with Trump.
The fake news media constructed an entire false narrative about how a few radio talk shows hosts and Fox News personalities actually run the country.
Reporters like this angle because it allows them to promote a story that the American people made a mistake in electing Trump, a man supposedly so ignorant he doesn’t know what to think until Rush Limbaugh fills in the blanks.
But like everything else Americans read in the fake news media, they would be wise to dismiss it.
