What did you expect from Limbaugh?

Trump fans peddle that media is the enemy of the public but praise Limbaugh.

Go figure...

What a legacy Trump will leave.

Limbaugh is a moron.

Limbaugh is a moron.

Limbaugh is possibly the single most destructive voice in the history of American political discourse. He has helped ruin rational public debate on politics and culture, and has made a huge profit off doing so.

A truly hateful and cynical man.

I couldn't agree more.

And he's also a moron.

Limbaugh's comments

Are similar to those made by Supreme Leader Putin, like Limbaugh a hero of the global alt right pushing to undermine democracies and replace them with nationalistic authoritarian systems. Their messages are intended primarily for males who for whatever reason fear 'others'.

Limbaugh is a deeply unpleasant character for those of us who identify as liberal, but what he said reminded me of something reported earlier this week on JT about Buttigieg's win in Iowa.

Internal focus group data obtained by the McClatchy news organization last year showed that many black voters, an important Democratic constituency, could view Buttigieg's sexuality as a barrier.

If I were a voter in the US, I'd be happy to vote for either Buttigieg or Sanders in 2020. But how accurate or significant is the assessment of black voting patterns quoted above? Could there be an element of truth in what Limbaugh said?

There is a huge element of truth in what Limbaugh said. you just are not “allowed” to talk about such things in our far left cancel culture.

basically no one wants to see politicians deep kissing on a debate stage. Even less so when it’s 2 dudes.

 Even less so when it’s 2 dudes.

I have trouble believing alt rightist's moralistic claims when they've come up with ways to defend their Trump's dealings with prostitutes and porn stars, his 'affairs', his alleged sexual assaults, his lies, his corrupt business practices, etc. etc. etc.

What makes you think gay men are more inclined to deep kiss on a debate stage?

Another Trump supporting loser.

Because they already did it and the media obligingly posted the pictures everywhere.

I really couldn't care less if they do or don't, if they are qualified.

Unlike you extremists, qualifications are what are important to the rest of the world.

Buttigieg won't be elected in 2020 or in the future because he's too fake, and like all the other Dems running, wants U.S. taxpayers to pay for illegals' medical care.

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

and Mayor Pete has no qualifications to speak of. So how is he in 2nd or 3rd place?

why is he still around and yet other golden boy Beto is long gone?

checking that diversity box for the Dems that Beto couldnt check.

You also said Trump would not win.

I have no idea how Pete will do, but your history of accuracy on projections tells me that if he doesn't win, it will be coincidental to your "logic".

Yeah, he should have gotten some reality tv experience so he'd actually be qualified!

Mayor Pete has no qualifications to speak of. 

He should first run a few companies into the dirt, stiff his contractors, steal from his own charity, establish a reputation as a molester of women, and set up a scam university. Then he can think about running for president.

oh thats cute. And all that was taken into account when he was still elected President in 2016.

Now voters can judge Mayor Pete in the same fashion. he is in 5th place nationally last I checked.

I dont see him winning any states. He has less than 8% in both South Carolina and North Carolina. Its just not gonna happen.

Yep. Which is why I brand Trump fans as losers.

And this from the most recent recipient of the Medal of Freedom?

The award has been cheapened to that of a tacky Crackerjacks prize.

Limbaugh isn't a moron, but his thoughts on this are way out of touch with most Americans. Most being over 51%, probably closer to 70%.

Only 30% of republicans are anti-gay rights according to a Gallup poll. https://news.gallup.com/poll/27613/public-favors-expansion-hate-crime-law-include-sexual-orientation.aspx Newer polls show only a 3% difference, so Republicans are still not against gay rights.

The reasons that Mayor Pete won't be elected aren't because he is gay, but we conservatives don't need to make up fish tales about Democrats either. Their own platform does enough damage for anyone who cares to read it.

I'm just going to leave all that alone,” said conservative Sen Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., who said she'd not heard the comment. Sen Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, facing reelection this fall, also declined to comment

Bowing to the bigot vote they need. Spineless. Pathetic.

Look at his competition. LOL

Yeah, he should have gotten some reality tv experience so he'd actually be qualified!

Don't forget employing thousands of people in multiple billion dollar businesses, and yeah, he had some bankruptcies like thousands of other business owners, but recovered and went on to be overall successful.

 I brand Trump fans as losers.

I'm sure you'll have a smart-ass comment to make when we "losers" re-elect him in a LANDSLIDE.
