Harry Reid Knocks Limbaugh for Suggesting He Got Beaten Up

Going ten rounds with CNBC’s John Harwood, outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he didn’t care who the GOP nominee ended up being, because “they’re all losers,” and called his replacement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a “lump of coal” — though he “didn’t mean to be mean-spirited.”

But Reid reserved most of his ire for Rush Limbaugh, whom he accused of starting a rumor that there was more to his eye injury than meets the eye. (#nailedit)

“It shows the credibility of Rush Limbaugh, he’s the guy who got all this started,” Reid said. “Why in the world would I come up with a story that I got hurt in my own bathroom with my wife standing there? How could anyone say anything like that?”

Reid said he injured his eye in an accident with a home exercise machine. There are, however, Reid truthers who believe he was beaten up, possibly in connection with some shady mob stuff.

“I don’t believe for a minute that whatever happened to Harry Reid has anything to do with an exercise machine unless somebody repeatedly threw him into it,” Limbaugh said on his radio program three weeks ago. “Harry Reid looks like and is acting like — and now with this announcement, behaving like — somebody who may have been beaten up.”
