‘If they think they’re gonna lose, they will try any which way they can’
Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday that Democrats, saddled with a weak candidate, are “already ginning up” plans not to have an election if they think the will lose.
“If nothing changes with this virus, can you imagine the fearmongering that is gonna take place in the media and the Democrat Party? They’re gonna scare the hell out of people over leaving home and going to vote. So here’s gonna come mail-in ballots and digital ballots and all this other kind of stuff,” he said.
“I know it’s hard to imagine that there won’t be an election. But I’ll guarantee you, if the Democrats think that they’re gonna lose it, they will try any which way they can to make that eventuality come true and make it look like it’s Trump’s idea. Because they’re already out there saying Trump won’t leave when he loses. Already ginning that up.”
Limbaugh cited a column by Vernon Jones, a black Democrat in Georgia, who said he’s not voting for Biden.
It’s at least partly because President Trump, unlike other politicians, has “backed up his words with actions.” And, Jones points out, Joe Biden was in office in Washington for 36 years but did nothing.
Limbaugh said it actually gets worse, because if Biden were elected, he wouldn’t be in charge, citing the Democrat’s mental acuity.
“The Democrats have to hide the disqualifying dementia. They cannot allow Biden to come out of his basement in Delaware and appear on a stage with Trump in any kind of a debate. They can’t risk that. So what they have to do instead is provide excuses. They have to somehow provide cover for Biden,” Limbaugh said.
He cited a commentary by Thomas Friedman of the New York Times that instructs Biden to debate President Trump only on certain conditions.
