For the last few weeks, we have been reporting on Donald Trump, who found himself the target of liberal backlash after he criticized the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico during his campaign announcement.
While many didn’t take Trump seriously as a presidential candidate at the beginning, that all changed last week when polls revealed that Trump is currently the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination. Despite his success, the GOP establishment has been on a mission to take Trump down because he refuses to let them control him.
Conservative radio talkshow host Rush Limbaugh has stayed mostly silent on Trump, trying to let this situation play out on it’s own: until now. According to The Political Insider, Limbaugh just defied the GOP establishment to defend Trump, saying that America has not seen “something like this in a long time.” Limbaugh said that Trump is unusual because America has “not seen an embattled public figure stand up for himself, double down and tell everybody to go to hell.”
“Trump can survive this, Trump is surviving this,” Limbaugh said on his Monday show, referring to the comments Trump made about Senator John McCain this past weekend. “This is a great, great teachable moment here, this whole thing with Trump and McCain.”
Limbaugh then slammed McCain for describing his own constituents as “crazies,” and he described the backlash against Trump as an over-hyped effort by the “drive-by media” to destroy him.
We applaud Limbaugh for having the courage to stand by Trump, even though it could come back to bite him among Republicans loyal to the establishment. What do you think about his comments? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
