On his top-rated radio show Tuesday, host Rush Limbaugh couldn't resist yet another opportunity to have some fun at the expense of everyone's favorite twice-failed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, who made headlines for all the wrong reasons again this week after declaring that global warming is, like basically every other bad thing, sexist.
Women, Clinton told a group of students at Georgetown University this week, will be "primarily burdened with the problems of climate change."
"Okay, now, to you and me, this is preposterous," said Limbaugh. "This is literally insane, that climate change has any way of knowing who it's going to hurt most. This is all part of a long-existing media meme: 'Women and children hardest hit. Women and minorities hardest hit. Women and the poor hardest hit.' It's something to be pasted into every story of disaster, every story of damage."
Limbaugh then did his trademark dramatic reading of Clinton's quote, but couldn't get through it without laughing. "Now, what is she talking about? This woman wouldn’t know a farm if an alien snatched her up and deposited her on one!" he said.
To drive home the absurdity, Limbaugh cued the audio of Clinton's comments (see video below).
HILLARY: They will bear the brunt of looking for the food, looking for the firewood, uh, looking for the place to migrate to when all of the grass is finally gone as the, uhh, desertification moves south and you have to keep moving your livestock or your crops are no longer growing; they’re burning up in the, uh, intense heat that we’re now seeing, uh, reported across North Africa, into the Middle East, and into India. So, yes, women once again will be primarily burdened with the problems of climate change.
"I'm at a loss to how to deal with this in any meaningfully different way than I have been dealing with," said Rush. "This is insane. This is moronic."
Climate change predictors, said Limbaugh in a mini-rant on the global warming agenda, are warning about things that will happen decades from now. "They’ll never predict it within 30 to 50 years," he said. "It’s always that or a little longer."
When he returned to Clinton, the laughter took over again. Here's RushLimbaugh.com's transcript of the moment:
LIMBAUGH: But the rejoinder is, "Wait a minute. You people yourselves say that this isn’t gonna happen for 30 to 40 years and in some cases the worst isn’t gonna happen until 2100.' But… (laughing) The Sahara Desert is already a desert, Hillary! (laughing) There aren’t any crops in the Sahara Desert. It is already… (laughing) She said, "[T]hey’re burning up in the intense heat that we’re now seeing reported across North Africa." North Africa, aside from cities on the coastal shelf there in the Mediterranean, it’s the Sahara Desert! It’s already a desert. "…into the Middle East and into India." So now climate change is happening. I guess the forecast predictions for years out are off the books now.
Not done with the fun yet, Limbaugh took a closer look at the "apocalyptic instruction" Clinton was providing all those students paying tens of thousands of dollars to attend Georgetown.
"Notice this apocalyptic picture," he said. "She’s talking to people that are being charged $30,000 to $50,000 a year to attend Georgetown University, their parents are scrimping and scraping, coming up with that money to send them there, and this is the kind of apocalyptic instruction that they’re getting. And here is Hillary Clinton, a presidential candidate, who has… I don’t think she means this for a minute. I can’t believe that even a reasonably intelligent person actually believes this. I have to think they know that they are promulgating a scam. It defies intellectual acuity to believe that this scenario is going to happen. 'They will bear the brunt of looking for the food.' She's on college campus, and she’s trying to mobilize a bunch of college-age women to become her army, and they’re using fear and fright and fatalism."
And he wasn't done yet: "'Women will bear the brunt of looking for the food, looking for the firewood,'" he said. "Of course, see, there won’t be any furnaces. Why would you need firewood if it’s this damn hot? If it’s this hot that crops won’t grow — if it’s this hot that the Sahara Desert is becoming an even bigger desert, if the grass is gone because of the burning heat, if North America is becoming a desert — why would you need firewood? Cooking? You won’t have any food because the crops are gone. The crops have literally been burned away! That’s why you’re migrating to the south."
"Then what happens when you get to the Gulf of Mexico?" he added. "Are women then gonna have to build the ships on which everybody boards and heads wherever to stay ahead of the desertification of North America?"
Limbaugh then turned his attention to the men in Clinton's apocalyptic vision — and deftly managed to work in a jab at the NFL in the process.
"And where are the men?" he asked. "Are the men to be left behind because they have already proven themselves to be utterly and totally worthless when it comes to survival? Can Hillary and the women not get them out of their man caves to even help? Are they still using shortwave radios to try to find NFL broadcasts while in their man caves, and they refuse to come out and help the women and children survive? Men are that selfish, that lazy, and that ambivalent about this?... Oh, no, they’re gonna be doing something if they’re not watching NFL broadcasts by then. Of course, the NFL probably won’t be playing because it would be too hot to play; the players would literally expire."
