Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 23, 2020

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday wagged his finger at Democrats and U.S. intelligence agencies, arguing they tricked former President George W. Bush into the Iraq War and are now trying to do the same to President Trump. ... Nonprofit group On the Issues pointed out that the radio host, who recently received the Medal of Freedom from Trump, was a huge supporter of the Iraq War and the claims of WMDs as reasoning for the conflict. "Limbaugh in 2006 announced his plan to 'get out the truth on weapons of mass destruction,' blaming 'the obdurate stubbornness and blindness of the Democrats and the drive-by media,'" the group said on its website.

Limbaugh was one of the biggest cheerleaders for this stupid war. He pretended for a long time that WMD were actually found in Iraq. The man has no conscience.

Nobody with a double digit IQ should have believed the WMD lies but the corporate media uncritically repeated them.

We were told WMD we're hidden in caves but none consulted a geologist. The only caves in Iraq are in the area controlled by the Kurds. All one needs to do is park their car in a cave for several years to see how silly such claims were.

Cancer is too god for this schitheap.

Let's pretend for just a moment that this is true? If so then why is it that Limbaugh and GOP voters so fervently supported an easily mislead fool? Why should anyone trust him and the GOP is they can be duped into launching an unjustified war by the opposition party? How does Limbaugh know that he, the gop and Trump aren't currently being duped into more horrible decisions by the Democrats or perhaps by a foreign nation?

I'm no fan of Trump, but Bush was way worse. At least Trump hasn't invaded another country getting millions of people killed and causing decades of blowback terrorism. At least not yet.

Limbaugh is just trying to set the record straight!

Limbaugh is a national hero. So everything he says must be true!

Hopefully his cancer won't kill him so we can enjoy his wonderful words of wisdom and wit forever!

Whenever I see or hear him I always feel so much better about myself.

Thank you my hero Limbaugh for helping America find its way into the darkness!

If Trump knew how to grift from war he'd have started five of them already.

Completely ignoring Colin Powell's comments at the UN. I guess millions only imagined that scene and photoshopped his speech...

The best thing about Limbaugh over the years is he shakes the turds to the surface and makes them better targets.

Seriously... it must be hugely disheartening for him to realize that after years of complaining over the airwaves to captive audiences stuck in traffic and already in a bad mood...

Everything he has stood for has been overturned. The country is turning more left than it has been in 50 years... and it is heading more and more in that direction.

Trumplethinskin is thus far the biggest POS... and he is leaving office in disgrace.

Cl0wns always lose... but they do put up a hell of a fight.

You say God Bless Trump because he hasn't started a war because he can't figure out how to make money on it?

We always knew your standards were low...

Okay, I wished for him a medical miracle if he would just STOP being a plague upon America. Now I just want him to hurry up and die for the sake of the human race.

You are America's second biggest POS and the sooner you suffer a horrid and rapid yet painful death, the better.

Wishing someone a horrid and painful death?

It's completely irrelevant what he announced. For a human being to wish a painful death on another human being is unacceptable in any context. The fact that you try to justify your statement tells me you're even more ------ up in the head than I thought.

I would much rather be a "whiny gadfly" then a monster who wishes painful death on another human being. So in closing, it looks like we're both happy about who we are

Great. Whatever.

Your hair is a terrible deflection to my the fact you are a monster if you wish a painful and horrid death on another human being.

Even though you deserve it, I fervently hope you don't have one. I hope it is quick ad painless.
