Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh blasted the mainstream media on Wednesday for trying to paint President Donald Trump as "unfit" for duty both physically and mentally. Their handling of Trump's physical, said Limbaugh, proves his theory about them: they actually believe all of this junk.
"Man, this is funny," he said. "The Drive-Bys don’t know what to do. They don’t know which story to lose their minds over first today. Bannon talking to Mueller or Trump’s physical and the fact that he’s in better shape than 90% of the media. He’s gonna outlive 90% of the media, it really ticks ’em off. They don’t know what to focus on first."
Limbaugh added, "Ladies and gentlemen, the childish display, the childish exposition and behavior of the Drive-By Media yesterday once again has proven me right. The bizarre questions, the unhinged, childish, so transparently desirous questions from our Drive-By Media regarding the health of President Trump, has proved something. And interestingly enough, it’s something that I highlighted yesterday. They believe this."
The conservative host explained his theory that the media is trying to peddle the narrative that Trump is not fit to perform his duties to his base in an attempt to sabotage his administration.
"The media believes, they’re not just trying to create the illusion, the media believes that Donald Trump is not fit to be president," he said. "The media believes he is in the early onset stages of either Alzheimer’s or dementia. They believe that he is mentally teetering on the edge and with a gentle nudge daily from them, that they can send him over it."
Limbaugh goes on to say the media believes whatever rumor they hear about Trump, from gorging on junk food to Russia collusion, and report on it nonstop because they actually believe it is the truth.
