Could Rush Limbaugh Turn Against Donald Trump?

Could Rush Limbaugh Turn Against Donald Trump?

If Rush Limbaugh had not given Trump his blessing, our President Elect’s candidacy may have sputtered and died early in the primaries. El Rushbo did admit that Trump is no conservative, but mainly focused on attacking his critics. Once Trump had the nomination sewn up, Limbaugh escalated his support to Hannity-esque levels of doggish devotion, attempting to spin even facepalm-worthy stumbles as strokes of genius.

When it looked like Trump was going to give his supporters the shaft by pulling a 180° on immigration even before the election, Rush brazenly lied that he never thought Trump was serious about deporting illegal aliens.

Trump’s plans to hurl the nation toward bankruptcy with an Obama-like $trillion infrastructure boondoggle splurge, despite the national debt approaching an unsustainable $20 trillion, astonishingly met with enthusiastic yips of approval from Maha-Rushi.

Yesterday we read this horrifying headline:

Never mind that Trump himself was an extremely generous donor both to Shrillary and to the corrupt Clinton Foundation slush fund. Now Trump will redeem himself by punishing companies that are not ideologically compliant. To update an infamous Newsweek cover, We Are All Fascists Now.

According to Rush’s spin, Boeing is to be slapped down for having indulged in crony capitalism. Already Rush has forgotten the Carrier deal, a combination of bribery and arm-twisting that even Trumpista Sarah Palin denounced as crony capitalism.

Is there any extreme of moonbattery that Rush wouldn’t smilingly swallow in order to Make America Great Again? Maybe:

Limbaugh has been one of President-elect Donald Trump’s staunchest backers, but he said on his show Tuesday he will not be if Trump becomes a global-warming advocate.

“I’m gonna tell you, the fastest way for me to abandon all this is if they sign on to this,” Limbaugh said of the climate-change issue. “I’m just telling you right now, folks, I can’t look the other way at that, and I won’t. There’s no way on earth.”

You know what happens when you draw a red line, someone crosses it, and then you pretend there was no line. Whatever credibility you had goes up in smoke. Just ask Obama.

Trump and the soon-to-be First Daughter Ivanka (who has already taken the lead in advancing yet another unaffordable entitlement) met with the Pope of Global Warming at Trump Tower on Monday. WaPo reports:

“I had a lengthy and very productive session with the president-elect. It was a sincere search for areas of common ground,” [Al “The Goracle”] Gore told reporters after spending about 90 minutes at Trump Tower in Manhattan during the lunch hour Monday. “I had a meeting beforehand with Ivanka Trump. The bulk of the time was with the president-elect, Donald Trump. I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that.”

Trump has repeatedly called climate change a “hoax” and said it was perpetrated by the Chinese government to take manufacturing jobs from the United States. But during a meeting with the New York Times late last month, he said he would keep an “open mind” on the issue and acknowledged that human activity might be connected to changes in the climate.

Ivanka, a aggressively liberal friend of Chelsea Clinton, reportedly wants to serve as Climate Czarina. Maybe that’s why she’s shopping for a house in D.C.

If Trump flips on the global warming hoax, will Rush really jump off the Trump Train? Will anyone? Or will they all be too terrified of being denounced as “cucks” for not toeing the ever-shifting line? Time will tell.

The red line has been drawn.
