The relationship between President Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu has notoriously been a very fraught one, but Rush Limbaugh invoked Ferguson and Obama’s approach to it on his radio show today to explain that relationship.
He believes that just like in Ferguson, the Obama administration is trying to “poison the jury pool” ahead of Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. Limbaugh called it “despicable” and said the only reason Obama isn’t a “footnote in history” is because of the media.
And then Limbaugh said this:
You look at how Obama has treated and does treat Netanyahu, you would think that Netanyahu was a white policeman from Ferguson, Missouri. I mean, that’s the conclusion that you would come to. Or that he was one of the cops that choked Eric Garner, or he was one of the jurors in the Trayvon Martin case.
