The Republican National Convention drew to a close on Thursday evening with a speech from President Donald Trump on the White House South Lawn. That capped off a week of appearances by people who ranged from Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) to deceased retired St. Louis Officer David Dorn’s widow.
Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh came away from the event in a good mood, telling listeners, “It lifted me up, folks.”
“It inspired me to be assured that the future holds promise, that the best is yet ahead if President Trump is re-elected,” Fox News quoted Limbaugh as telling his listeners on Friday.
Limbaugh said RNC was “inspiring”
“Whatever you’re going through — whether it’s an illness, a small business in trouble — the event last night truly was inspiring,” the host continued.
Limbaugh’s comment about illness was likely a reference to his own circumstances: earlier this year, Limbaugh revealed that he is being treated for advanced lung cancer.
“It is right-on-the-money true, and it continues to be the case, and it explains why they continue — in the establishment, deep state, whatever — to be so outraged and indignant and irrational,” he said.
Limbaugh went on to contend that those figures simply aren’t able to deal with the political impact that the president has been making.
Convention was about “saving America”
“They’re incapable of being rational when Trump is around, precisely because he is changing where they live,” the veteran broadcaster pointed out. “He’s changing where they work.”
“It has occurred to me that Trump isn’t just running for re-election,” Limbaugh noted. “The story that is being told at the Republican National Convention is about saving America.”
As far as Limbaugh is concerned, the story is “about saving America from a race war that the Democrats are out there actively trying to promote,” He added, “They’re trying to foment it … They want that chaos.”
“They want this constant us-versus-them aspect of daily life,” the conservative commentator complained of those within the Democratic Party.
In contrast, Limbaugh argued that “Trump is making it clear that he’s interested in people who are constructive, productive, generally happy. He’s not interested in parasites, the generally miserable.”
