Rush Limbaugh today pounced on gossip that the Obama administration might be trying to tank Hillary Clinton by leaking the email story to the press and rattled off several reasons why, he thinks, Obama would want to sabotage her.
For one, Limbaugh posited, Obama doesn’t want the next president to “unravel,” and if it happens, “he’s gonna call his buddies in the press, he’s gonna be all over the media trying to stop it.”
Another possibility Limbaugh threw out is that Obama’s worried that Clinton will want to “differentiate herself from him,” while a third suggests to him that Obama’s “a little angry about how [the Clintons] get away with everything.” And so, he said, “Maybe he’s worried that Hillary would do an better job than he’s done and wouldn’t want to have the next Democrat president end up looking better than he does. I think that’s entirely possible.”
The White House, of course, shot down the gossip as “pure baloney” earlier today.
