“Politics is “showbiz for the ugly,’ and that’s what the White House Correspondents Dinner was,” said Limbaugh. “It’s their big Oscar night. It’s where they all get together and, um, it’s a circle… thing.”

“I haven’t seen this kind of ‘groupie-ism’ in years,” Limbaugh said of Malveaux’s Saturday night tweets in which the CNN anchor spent the majority of her night taking photos with celebrities and sending them Twitter shout outs. “She was just – I mean, totally enthralled being anywhere near Obama.”

Limbaugh described Malveaux’s tweets as “just over the top.”

“It was like high school. It was like being invited into the big clique,” said Limbaugh. “She couldn’t believe how cool he was. How cool it was to be in the same room with Obama. And I thought, hasn’t this woman covered the White House I her career?”
