Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh discussed Donald Trump’s historic victory in detail on Wednesday and summed it up with two words: “total repudiation” of the Obama administration.
“It was a total repudiation of the Obama presidency and every aspect of it. It was a total repudiation of the Democrat Party by the people I always describe as those who make this country work,” Limbaugh said. “It’s a full repudiation of Obamacare. It’s a full repudiation of Obama economics.”
“It is dead-straight simple what the American people voted yesterday… They do not want to have to view their government as Santa Claus,” Rush added. “The Democratic Party was told to go take a hike. The agenda of Barack Obama was told to go take a hike.”
He then turned his attention to Hillary Clinton and the accusations by the Left as to why Trump won: “You lost because your ideas were rejected… It’s not complicated here… This election was not affected by a bunch of white people who were trying to take their country back.”
“The Democratic Party agenda was creamed!” he said.
Every way they choose to characterize their loss is going to be wrong until they admit that what they stand for was rejected. Their policies, their agenda was told to take a hike last night by all kinds of people. This was a coalition of all colors and stripes and backgrounds that came together last night to send this policy regime packing!
Rush made note of the size of crowd for Clinton’s concession speech as opposed to her campaign rallies: “By the way, that was the largest group she’s ever drawn in this campaign.”
The pollsters have been heavily criticized for their predictions in the wake of Trump’s victory. Rush discussed why the pollsters got it so wrong: “Every pollster except two or three got this totally wrong because of their own closed mindedness, because of their own bigotry.”
Rush said that Trump showed the Republicans how to beat the Democrats in this election:
Donald Trump has just schooled everybody else on how you win.
It was not necessary to go through these past eight years… Our party has not believed that Democrats can be beat and Donald Trump has shown how to do it.
He added that with the Republicans fully in charge, there are no excuses not to get things done: “Now we have no excuses… The Republican Party has been given the full reins of this country and this government. And there is a mandate behind it.”
