Conservative political commentator and radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has stepped forward to defend Donald Trump from the accusations about his inappropriate behavior towards women. He recently fired back at Michelle Obama after the FLOTUS lashed out on Trump during a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton.
Almost immediately after Clinton’s camp released a tape of Trump exposing his alleged inappropriate behavior, the Republican presidential hopeful came under fire from his critics and political rivals. The New York Times even published a story featuring interviews with Trump’s alleged victims who claimed that they were sexually assaulted by the GOP’s nominee several years ago.
Trump has already denied these allegations and called the reports fictitious. He noted that he is being targeted in a character assassination plot by his political rivals just weeks before the election on Nov. 8.
However, Obama, a known supporter of Clinton, has recently joined the rally against Trump by accusing him of bragging about his behavior.
“I can’t believe I’m saying a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women,” she said during Clinton’s campaign in Manchester, New Hampshire according to CNN.
In response to the first lady’s tirade, Limbaugh took to his radio program, “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” to point out the flaws in Obama’s stance against Trump. He noted that she and her husband Barack have previously invited several hip-hop artists, who are known to use lines that are demeaning to women in their songs, to the White House.
“Men brag, and she is telling people that she doesn’t know men who brag,” he said. “You know the people that have been to the White House? How about some of the rappers that talk about their ‘b*tches’ and their ‘hos’ have performed such lyrics in the White House?”
Limbaugh also mentioned that what Trump said in the tape should not be considered as grounds for sexually assault.
“If you go back to the audiotape, he said ‘When you’re a celebrity, they let you do anything,” Limbaugh said. “How can there be assault if somebody’s granting permission? How can it be assault if they let you do anything?
