Rush Limbaugh: Daily Caller Reporter ‘Was Heckling Obama’s White Half’

On his syndicated radio show Monday, host Rush Limbaugh reacted to President Barack Obama‘s Friday immigration announcement and the infamous heckling by Daily Caller writer Neil Munro, saying that “everybody knows that Munro was heckling Obama’s white half.”

Limbaugh addressed some of Munro’s critics who suspect racial motives for the interruption, adding that these same critics don’t see racial motivation behind former ABC reporter Sam Donaldson‘s forceful interactions with President Ronald Reagan.

“This never happened to a white president,” Limbaugh mocked. “Sam Donaldson — I guess I never knew Reagan was black until today because this kind of behavior, it wouldn’t happen to a white guy. How cheap. How clichéd. How simplistic. How predictable. How utterly ignorant of these supposed great minds to suggest that any of this has anything to do with Obama’s skin color, because I’m going to tell you: it doesn’t.”

Moreover, Limbaugh added that he believes Munro’s critics need to get over the president’s skin color:

“I got over his skin color before he was elected … This historical nature? Yep, maybe for a while, but after that all that matters to me is his ideas, pure and simple. … I couldn’t care less about this guy’s skin color. And for these guys to run around and make this kind of accusation — it is cheap, it is predictable, it is clichéd, it is ignorant and it’s wrong.”

“These are the same people laughing when Bush had a shoe thrown at him over in Iraq, Limbaugh added, recalling the infamous 2008 incident when an Iraqi journalist removed and threw his shoes at former President George W. Bush during a press conference. “Can you imagine if Neil Munro had thrown a shoe at Obama? They laughed. They were upset that the guy who tossed the shoe missed. Besides, everybody knows that Munro was heckling Obama’s white half, folks. Everybody knows that.”
