Rush Limbaugh: Washington Establishment Has Launched ‘Silent Coup’ Against Trump

During his radio show on Tuesday, Rush Limbaugh said that the GOP-led Congress is in no hurry to repeal the Affordable Care Act because “they don’t want to touch Obamacare.”

According to Limbaugh, “It is abundantly clear that the career Republicans in Washington don’t want to touch Obamacare. They don’t want to repeal it. And they don’t want to do tax reform. And they don’t want to build a wall. They don’t want to do any of the Trump agenda. The Democrats, the Republicans, it doesn’t matter what the party divisions are, because we’re really not talking about that.”

It is Limbaugh’s contention that Donald Trump never had a chance to succeed from the moment he took office because Washington “insiders” were afraid that an outsider would come in and expose the incompetence within the government and the cushy deal lawmakers have given themselves over the years.

“Since the moment Donald Trump was elected you could see that the establishment began to circle the wagons and there was no way this guy was gonna be allowed to triumph on anything,” Limbaugh said. “There was no way that this establishment was going to permit an outsider to come in and clean house and show how Washington can work and blow their cover for the last how many decades.”

He believes that the fight has “has never been about Trump unifying the Republican party in order to beat the Democrats,” but about “Donald Trump and his cadre and you, the Trump base, versus the Washington establishment.”

The same folks who want to destroy the President are not going to help him accomplish his agenda, according to Limbaugh. They are not trying to help, they are launching a “coup”:

“We’re in the midst of a silent coup. These people are trying to take this president out. And everybody understands that. So why in that circumstance do you think that the same people trying to destroy Donald Trump are going to help him get rid of Obamacare? Are going to help him reform the tax code? They’re not. They are going to have to be defeated, not worked with. There isn’t any cooperation.”
