Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh is sounding the alarm on a plot he believes Democrats are enacting to defeat President Trump in November.
During a segment on his radio program, Limbaugh warned that Democratic governors are going to try to keep their states shut down as long as possible so they can plan President Donald Trump for their problems.
Rush also said he thinks Democratic lawmakers will rely on Republicans to get economies up and running following statewide lockdown orders.
“I’ll tell you something else that’s starting to send red flags up. You probably have already noticed this. All these blue state governors that want to keep their states locked down, it’s purely political. But what are they depending on? They’re depending on the red states — the red states that are opening up! The red states are gonna get the economy kick-started,” Limbaugh said.
“The red states are gonna create capital and money to transfer to pay these people their stupid welfare costs (and whatever else they’re using to bleed this country dry), while their population sits home, doesn’t work, waits for the federal check to show up — and they sit around and they trash the supposedly reckless red states. I cannot tell you how this irritates me,” he continued.
Limbaugh argued that Republican governors are “doing the right thing” while their Democratic counterparts are doing “the exact opposite.”
He then said blue states will try to “wreck the economy” to ensure Trump isn’t reelected come November.
Rush argued: “The red-state governors — like Kemp in Georgia and any number of these people — are doing the right thing. They’re trying to get their people back to work, for all the right common-sensical human and humane reasons — to protect lives — to protect livelihoods, the United States economy, the state economy. And then you go to a blue state, and it’s the exact opposite.”
Rush then really tore into Democrats:
The American left and the Democrat Party is going to do its best to keep this economy shut down, to extend and expand that shutdown — and blow up their own country’s jobs — just to ensure that Trump loses. But here’s the thing about that. Let’s do a little hypothetical. Let’s say this continues as it is, and let’s say that more and more red states open up and the economy in these states starts to return and revive.
The blue states stay locked down. These are populous places — New York, Massachusetts, California. So they stay locked down all for the express purpose of canceling out the increase created by the red states. The economic activity that will happen from the red states going back to work, the blue state governors are gonna try to cancel it out by keeping their people at home.
They’re gonna wreck the economy. Their objective is to wreck the economy and get rid of Trump. So let’s say that… Well, hard as it is to imagine, let’s say they succeed. Let’s imagine they do this. They keep the economy in such bad shape that Trump is sent packing.
He thinks Democrats loathe Trump so much that they would be willing to ruin their own state’s economy’s — which would endanger countless people’s lives who live in blue states — just to harm Trump’s chances of winning re-election.
Rush’s fiery comments come after he announced in February that he is battling advanced lung cancer and has been undergoing treatment.
