Limbaugh: Hashtag Activism on Nigeria Makes Obama ‘Look Impotent and Pathetic’

Rush Limbaugh has been somewhat critical of the Obama administration this week on the “hashtag activism” surrounding the kidnapping of hundreds of girls in Nigeria, and doubled down on Friday, saying all the politicians and administration officials using the #BringBackOutGirls hashtag makes Obama look “impotent and pathetic.”

Limbaugh said the president and first lady are “hiding behind the cosmetics” with “the typical symbolism over substance that characterizes the modern Democratic party and liberalism.”

He made it clear he’s not calling for military action of anything, but he thinks the leader of the free world should be following their hashtag with action.

“If you’re going to do something, don’t look impotent when you do it! You know, it’s okay for John Q. Public and Jane Q. Public, who can’t do anything about it, to get all excited about a Twitter hashtag movement––everybody wants to show they care and so forth––but the most powerful man in the world looks impotent and pathetic and then so does his country when the Twitter hashtag becomes the instrument here.”
