Rush Limbaugh Says Coronavirus is Being Used To Bring Down Trump
Radio host Rush Limbaugh recently speculated the coronavirus is being used by the “drive-by media” to “bring down” President Trump.
Limbaugh told listeners Monday, “It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump. I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus.”
“Folks, this coronavirus thing, I want to try to put this in perspective for you. It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump. Now, I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks,” said Limbaugh.
He pointed out the survival rate is 98%, so only two percent of the people will die from it, which is less than the flu.
“It probably is a ChiCom laboratory experiment that is in the process of being weaponized. All superpower nations weaponize bioweapons. They experiment with them. The Russians, for example, have weaponized fentanyl. Now, fentanyl is also not what it is represented to be,” explained Limbaugh.
“There’s nothing unusual about the coronavirus. In fact, coronavirus is not something new. There are all kinds of viruses that have that name,” said Limbaugh.
Limbaugh did tell his listeners not to “let their guard down because any infection would be miserable.”
“This is a classic illustration of how media coverage — even if this media coverage isn’t stacked, even if this just the way media normally does things. This is a hyped, panic-filled version. Exactly how the media deals with these things to create audience, readership, interest, clicks what have you,” he added.
