Rush Limbaugh Loses It Over Border Wall Failure: Trump ‘Got Less Than Nothing!’

Rush Limbaugh fumed over the compromise, announced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday, that would finance the government through the New Year but denied funding for President Donald Trump‘s long promised border wall.

“It’s what the drive-by media calls compromise: Trump gets nothing and the Democrats get everything, including control of the House in a few short weeks,” Limbaugh fumed on his show Wednesday. “In fact… Trump is going to get less than nothing because this compromise strips out the $1.6 billion for the wall that the Senate Appropriations Committee had already approved weeks ago, that’s gone too.”

“Not a penny!” Limbaugh exclaimed. “Forget wall, think border security!”

Limbaugh said Democrats are working to make Trump’s border wall a broken promise akin to George H.W. Bush‘s infamous “Read my lips: no new taxes” promise.

Trump was elected “to bulldoze through all of that,” Limbaugh lamented, blasting the U.S. government for allocating billions in aid to Central America and Southern Mexico.

Limbaugh’s not alone in decrying Republicans for caving on the wall. He joins Fox & Friends, Ann Coulter, and House Republicans in the Freedom Caucus in fury over the funding deal announced by leadership.
