I swore off writing about Rush Limbaugh this year, but he continues to link President Obama to racist billionaire slumlord Donald Sterling, who received a lifetime ban from basketball by the NBA commissioner on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Limbaugh drew a comparison between the president and Donald Sterling in how the media has gone after both men. He said President Obama hasn’t unified the country like he said he would. He went after him for not just dividing the country but for exploiting that very cultural divide.
He claims that the winds are changing for Obama’s media coverage but he asked, “Where was this seven years ago during the campaign?””Obama is no different than Donald Sterling in one regard, and that is that everything we know about Obama today was knowable in 2007 and 2008.”
This comes after Limbaugh suggested earlier in the week that Sterling was in trouble because he “did not give enough money to Obama.” He got slammed in the media and then made a weak claim that he was joking. That’s not before taking a swipe at CNN’s Don Lemon for being critical of his remarks. He said Lemon sleeps with men. Um, and he’s a Viagra pill-popping lunatic.
