Rush Limbaugh

Rush For A Dumpster Fire


cjones12292018

After telling Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that he’d be “proud to shut down the government” and he wouldn’t blame him, is anyone surprised Donald Trump is now blaming the Democrats for his shutdown?

On December 11, sitting in the Oval Office with Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Trump said, “I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck. … I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it.” After shutting down the government, Trump tweeted on December 21, “Democrats now own the shutdown!” It’s as if video doesn’t exist.

I don’t believe anyone is surprised Trump lied. In fact, I think we all expected he’d blame Democrats, especially after he said he wouldn’t. Trump lies about everything, mostly about the wall he wants on our southern border, starting with “Mexico will pay for it.”

A wall on our southern border will never exist. It’s not necessary, logical, or feasible. It won’t cut down on illegal immigration as most here illegally entered the nation legally. How is a wall going to stop that? The wall is just a racist vanity project to drum up Trump’s withering base of sycophantic supporters. After telling his supporters that Mexico would pay for the wall, he’s now telling them Democrats won’t let him make you pay for it. For some reason, his base is upset they won’t be forced to pay for what they were promised Mexico was supposed to pay for. Now, many in his base are contributing to a GoFundMe to pay for the wall. That might be a great idea. Why should those of us who knew it was a con have to pay for Trump’s lie and broken campaign promise? Is Trump that great of a conman or is his base just that stupid?

How did we get to this shutdown crisis? Because Trump is a toddler having a temper tantrum. The Senate was set to approve a spending deal this week without the $5 billion Trump wants to kick-start his wall project. Trump was prepared to sign it, but after being goaded by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham, he changed his mind and forced a government shutdown when it’s not necessary.

Trump realized if he gave up on the wall funding then the ruse is over. His base just might discover there was never any real intention to build a wall. In case you’re not smart enough to have known it was a con job back when he first proposed it during his presidential campaign, his phone call with Mexican president Peña Nieto should have made the con clear.

Shortly after taking office, Trump told Nieto about the wall, “Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important talk about.” He then told Nieto, “The fact is we are both in a little bit of a political bind because I have to have Mexico pay for the wall. I have to. I have been talking about it for a two-year period, and the reason I say they are going to pay for the wall is because Mexico has made a fortune out of the stupidity of US trade representatives.”

He then proposed, “They are going to say, ‘Who is going to pay for the wall, Mr. President?’ to both of us, and we should both say, ‘We will work it out.’ It will work out in the formula somehow. As opposed to you saying, ‘We will not pay’ and me saying, ‘We will not pay.'” This was Trump begging Mexico to help him con his base.

Trump was about to fold and compromise with Congress until right-wing troglodytes on the radio threatened to expose the con.

Rush Limbaugh said, “It’s a textbook example of what the drive-by media calls compromise. Trump gets nothing, and the Democrats get everything, including control of the House.”

Ann Coulter said on a podcast that Trump’s White House would become “a joke presidency who scammed the American people” if he didn’t build the wall, adding that “he’ll have no legacy whatsoever.” Trump was so upset, he unfollowed her on Twitter. But, he caved into Coulter and Rush.

Donald Trump listens to Rush Limbaugh but not his Secretary of Defense. This is the madness and what Republican Senator Bob Corker called the “tyranny of talk radio hosts.” Forget what’s best for America, what does Rush Limbaugh think?

Trump didn’t just do Rush’s bidding. He called him to stop the bleeding with his base. On his show, Limbaugh said, “The president got word to me 20 minutes ago that if it comes back to him without money, if whatever happens in the House and Senate comes back to him with no allocation of $5 billion for the wall, then he’s going to veto it” It’s alarming the president is least concerned about the nation and more worried about what Limbaugh wants.

Trump doesn’t care about this nation. He doesn’t care about the border. He cares about Trump. He cares about his brand.

For all Trump cares, the nation and her people can burn in a dumpster just so long as his brand comes out unscathed.

Rushnado


cjones09102017

Al Franken published a book in the 1990s before he became a United States Senator titled “Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot.” I’ll give that title a “ditto.”

Limbaugh is well-known for being a provocative flame thrower and pusher of absurdity in his attempts to take down liberalism. But, he’s gone beyond just being a national jerk throughout his career. Limbaugh was fake news before “fake news” was a term. Before the Donald Trump era, we just referred to what Limbaugh did as “bullshit.”

A couple days ago, Limbaugh floated the theory that hurricanes are hyped by the media to “advance this climate change agenda.” Limbaugh believes hurricanes are never as bad as predicted and that the media is only providing non-stop coverage to scare you into purchasing bottles of water and other supplies from local retailers. Limbaugh said there was a “symbiotic relationship between retailers and local media, and it’s related to money.”

On his show, Limbaugh said “The local media … reports in such a way as to create the panic way far out, which sends people into these stores to fill up with water and to fill up with batteries, and it becomes a never-ending repeated cycle,” he said. “And the two coexist. So the media benefits with the panic with increased eyeballs, and the retailers benefit from the panic with increased sales, and the TV companies benefit because they’re getting advertising dollars from the businesses that are seeing all this attention from customers.”

I made a post on social media about Limbaugh’s stupid comment, but I didn’t plan to draw a cartoon on it. And then, Limbaugh announced he’s evacuating Florida. Rush said, “May as well announce this. I’m not going to get into details because of the security nature of things, but it turns out that we will not be able to do the program here tomorrow,” he said on his Thursday radio show. “We’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown.”

I don’t know what unknown parts Rush will be airing his show from, but I’m pretty sure his head will be in its usual location, which is up his lying ass.

Rush has put his idiotic viewers’, who he refers to as “dittoheads,” lives in danger. Rush doesn’t want them to trust meteorologists and other scientists, even if they’re in danger…but Rush will ignore his own advice and yank his fat ass out of his Palm Beach home. Rush’s disregard for his listeners illustrates just how important they are to him.

I have a theory about advertisers. Every company that advertises on Rush’s show has supported him calling women “feminazis,” “sluts,” and “prostitutes.” Now, they’re financially supporting his putting lives in danger. Maybe, they shouldn’t be pulling their support because Rush is a disgusting, racist, misogynistic, crude, asshole who lies a lot. They should pull their advertising because he’s a public safety hazard.

When Rush Limbaugh tells his viewers not to sweat a category five hurricane, he is putting their lives in danger. If you listen to Rush, tell me if Katrina, Sandy, and Harvey weren’t as bad as predicted…or if they were worse. Do you wanna gamble with your life on the science of a guy who doesn’t understand how ice melts?

Is Rush Limbaugh a big fat idiot? Ditto.

Apes On The Radio


cjones06032016

I think “Apes On The Radio” would be an awesome name for a skinny-jeans wearing emo band.

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh wasn’t getting enough oxygen to his brain and gave us all a science lesson. He explained it to us slowly in case we’re too slow to keep up. He said the evolution doesn’t exist because the gorilla from the Cincinnati Zoo had not turned into a human.

I wonder if Rush has ever listened to himself? If he did he might think, “this guy on the radio is an idiot.” Isn’t there someone who loves him that would try to save him from embarrassment by saying “hey, Rusho. Shut up.”

How many hours a day is Rush on the radio? Three? Four? Seventeen? I would think how ever many hours it is would be better filled with “ook ook ook” than whatever Rush is saying. It’d make more sense. Personally, I hate talk radio. I don’t see how anyone can listen to it and not develop ulcers from stress. Every right wing talk radio show host sounds like they’re suffering from serious sphincter pain. As if there’s a giant pointy stick in there. I’d probably be angry and shouting all the time too and make stuff up to be angry about, because who wants to admit they shoved a giant pointy stick in their butt?

People are still going on about the gorilla. Everyone has an opinion. But seriously, if you never worked for child protective services, or worked in a zoo, or have zero experience being a gorilla….shut up.

This was drawn on the tablet while I was out and was supposed to be celebrating my birthday. Drawing cartoons is my way of having fun.

Party With Nikki


cjones01142016

South Carolina governor Nikki Haley delivered the Republican response to the president’s State of the Union address and a lot of Republicans are livid. To be fair, many Republicans were supportive, but the racist wing of it freaked out.

Haley said the GOP were partly responsible for our nation’s problems. Uh oh! Then she said the party needs to calm down regarding immigration. That’s when everything hit the fan and splattered all over the ceiling. Republicans are still smarting over Haley’s removal of the hate flag from her state capitol’s grounds.

Nikki Haley was born to a Sikh Indian family in South Carolina. Ann Coulter tweeted that Donald Trump should deport her. She’s as American, if not more, than you, Ann. Where ya’ gonna deport her to? And I didn’t realize Trump had deportation authority.

Rush Limbaugh, that jolly pill-popping bastard, said “this is to me one of the greatest bits of evidence that the Republican party is not just anti conservative but it is very much pro elite.” Good news, Rusho. You’re wrong. You’re party is still warm and inviting to racists everywhere. Apparently if you’re not a knuckle-dragging troglodyte you’re an elitist.

Her message was primarily aimed at Donald Trump and to a lesser extent, Ted Cruz. Trump responded that Haley is weak on immigration and that he’s leading the polls in her state.

Ted Cruz didn’t respond to her speech as he was too busy watching Canadian curling.
