Rush Limbaugh is following in President Trump’s footsteps in attacking Fox News.
“We’ve even got Never Trumpers now all over Fox News,” Limbaugh said, before mocking unspecified anti-Trump guests who have been featured on the network. “’Well, this phone call is very hard to defend. I wouldn’t want to have to defend this phone call. If I were the Republicans, I wouldn’t want…’ There’s nothing hard to defend about the phone call! You just don’t want to defend it!”
Limbaugh then said that Fox News should change its name to the “Fox Never Trumper Network”.
Trump has been increasingly hostile toward Fox News, musing that the network is “different, there’s no question about it.”
Limbaugh also argued that “Never Trumpers” fail to recognize that “conservatism’s under assault” and that they’d “rather be friends with these nincompoops on the left than have to defend [their] own side.”
