Limbaugh: Supporters Love Trump Tweets Because They’re ‘Fed Up with Being on Defense’

President-elect Donald Trump‘s reputation for tweeting has been a source of consternation for many, but his supporters love it and Rush Limbaugh today explained why.

In the past few weeks, Trump has tweeted about everything from Hamilton to SNL, and there has been a lot of cable news discussion about Trump’s tweeting habits. Trump himself tweeted today that he tweets to combat the dishonesty of the media.

Limbaugh today mocked the media reactions to Trump’s tweeting and said Trump is right to “correct the lies and the dishonesty in the drive-by media about him.”

By tweeting, Limbaugh explained, Trump is not only “leading,” but he demonstrates a level of “unpredictability” that puts his adversaries on defense. And the reason his supporters like that is because for years they’ve been the ones on defense from Democrats and the liberal media.

They’re fed up, Limbaugh said, “with being on defense and being on a team that never fought back.”
