Rush Limbaugh Says Trump Is Flip-Flopping On Immigration And Will Support Amnesty
Alan: It is difficult to determine the significance of Limbaugh's comments since he runs neck and neck with Devious Donald for which celebrity tells the most lies.
Limbaugh loses it over Trump's immigration flip-flop
Rush Limbaugh could not stop laughing on Thursday at Donald Trump’s abrupt shift in immigration policy.
“Who knew —” Limbaugh managed to say, before bursting into laughter. “Do you imagine what it’s like to be Jeb Bush today?”
He continued to choke up, apologizing between bursts of laughter.
“I know it frustrates you to hear me. I’m sorry," he said on his radio show. "OK, I’m regaining my composure.”
Limbaugh began his sentence again.
“Who knew that it would be Donald Trump to come on and convert the GOP base to supporting amnesty the same week Ann Coulter’s book comes out,” Limbaugh said.
“Poor Ann, oh my God, she has this book ‘In Trump We Trust,’ and in it she says, ‘The only thing, the only thing that could cause Donald Trump any trouble whatsoever is if he flipflops on abortion or immigration and goes amnesty,' and it looks like he’s getting close to it,” Limbaugh said. “I mean what timing, I have to dry my eyes here."
Limbaugh’s fit of laughter comes after Coulter, a vocal opponent of immigration reform, slammed Trump on Wednesday for “softening” his stance on the issue.
Although the Republican nominee says he opposes "amnesty" and insists his signature proposal, a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, is “100 percent being built,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity this week that he would "work with" undocumented immigrants as president and suggested they might be able to remain in the United States if they paid back taxes.
Bush, the former Florida governor who ran against Trump in the Republican primary, told a radio host on Thursday: "All the things that Donald Trump railed against, he seems to be morphing into — it’s kind of disturbing.”
