Rush Limbaugh says it’s far worse than ‘not funny hatefest’ by Michelle Wolf…
Rush Limbaugh revealed the “real ‘scandal’” of the weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner – and he is not referring to the “horrible and crude, not funny hatefest conducted by so-called comedienne.”
Monday was filled with a flood of reaction and comments about Michelle Wolf’s diatribe at Saturday night’s event.
Wolf took full advantage of the spotlight at the WHCD to attack the women closest to President Trump, especially White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
The so-called comedian went after Sarah Sanders by insulting the way she looks and calling her a liar. She thought she was being funny, but it was nothing more than a brutal personal attack.
“I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale, she began, comparing her appearance to a bossy older woman on that show.
Wolf added that she was not sure whether Sanders was going to divide the reporters into softball teams, or tell a “bunch of lies,” or a give a press briefing.
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. Like she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye,” she said. “Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lice … It’s probably lice.”
Wolf told the audience that she wasn’t sure what to call Sanders, questioning whether she should call her “Aunty Huckabee Sanders” or “Cousin Huckabee.”
“What is Uncle Tom, but for white women who disappoint other white women?” she asked. “I know. Aunty Coulter.”
The audience in the room was noticeably uncomfortable as Sanders sat at the head table without smiling.
WND reports that her star was quickly fading as revulsion to her insults grew.
No matter, explained Limbaugh, that’s not the real scandal.
The real one is that the organization honored CNN and a couple of its reporters for writing about the “dossier” last year. That’s the political opposition research document that apparently contains made-up claims about President Trump.
It reportedly was used by Obama supporters in the Department of Justice to launch the investigation into the so-called “Russian collusion” issue now under the watchful, and unsuccessful so far, eye of special counsel Robert Mueller.
The real one is that the White House Correspondents’ Association honored CNN and a couple of its reporters for writing about the Steele “dossier” last year. That’s the political opposition research document of unverified claims about President Trump.
It was used by Obama supporters in the Department of Justice to launch investigations into alleged “Russian collusion,” including the special counsel probe by Robert Mueller, which has found no evidence of collusion.
“The real news of the evening is that the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Association gave reporters Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, Evan Perez, and Carl Bernstein an award for their January 10th, 2017, report on the Steele dossier,” Limbaugh said.
“You know the story. Hillary Clinton, as in a work of art, commissions this thing as opposition research. She hires Fusion GPS, which then hires a law firm to make the payment to wash the money so that it’s not traceable back to Clinton. And they hire this Christopher Steele guy to go out and make up a bunch of garbage about Trump for the express purpose of using it as so-called legitimate intelligence on Trump that is designed to drive down public opinion on Trump so as to make it easy to get rid of him!” he said.
“So the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Association gave Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, Evan Perez with be and Carl Bernstein an award for their January 10th report on the dossier, 2017. Now, we now know, folks, that their report was nothing but dictation from James Clapper.”
Clapper at the time was director of national intelligence for Obama.
Limbaugh described him as “a left-wing hack. He is a partisan hack.”
The reporters “knew what they thought they knew” simply because Clapper leaked it to them, he said.
“Worse than that, it was all part of a calculated setup to give CNN a news hook so that they could start reporting on the Steele dossier and make it public. The Steele dossier had been known for months. It was floating around Washington, and everybody knew what it was. And everybody knew that it was unverified, uncorroborated. Everybody in the media knew that none of it could be established to have happened, none of it could be proved, none of it could be verified. But the media wanted it in the public domain,” Limbaugh explained.
“How to do that? CNN needed a news hook. A news hook is a reason to report on it aside from its contents. You couldn’t report on the details ’cause none of it was verified. So they needed a way to get this thing known by the American people. The way this happened, James Clapper essentially told Comey to go brief Trump on the existence of the dossier.”
Comey does Clapper’s bidding, Limbaugh said, and Clapper “leaks to CNN” that the briefing has taken place.
Of course, he pointed out, Clapper had to lie about tipping off CNN, and got caught, and then after President Trump was sworn in, CNN hired Clapper.
