Media giant Rush Limbaugh revealed his prediction for President Barack Obama’s plan for political involvement after stepping down as president, and it wasn’t what conservatives wanted to hear.
On Tuesday, Limbaugh predicted that Obama would serve as a rallying point for Democrats nationwide, criticizing President-elect Donald Trump’s every move.
He raises an important point — the media has been (and always will be) on Obama’s side.
“Obama is going to call (NBC’s) Chuck Todd — take his pick — (CNN’s) John King, Wolf Blitzer… and they will not be able to wait,” Limbaugh said on Tuesday. “They’ll give Obama as much time as he wants to rip into Trump and to ‘warn’ the American people.”
“He’s going to try to create all kinds of unrest and disunity and so forth,” he added.
From a partisan standpoint, he almost has to. With the fall of the Democrat nominee for president Hillary Clinton, there are not a lot of Democrat figureheads left to choose from.
Obama has already shown his intent about post-presidential life.
“As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal or battle, but go to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, then I’ll examine it when it comes,” he said, according to The Hill.
That is a very polite way of saying that, unlike former President George W. Bush, Obama has no intention of gracefully stepping back from public life.
“Obama is going to (attack Trump) from Washington,” Limbaugh insisted. “And he’s going to do it within hours of whatever Trump does. And he’s going to do it on major cable news. And the media is going to be 100 — 1,000 percent behind Obama.”
Make no mistake — just because conservatives swept the election in November does not mean they are safe, especially from the mainstream media.
Conservatives still have an uphill battle to fight the next four years.
