In the Monday episode of “The Rush Limbaugh Show” by Premiere Networks, the presenter made his feelings about the 2020 presidential election very clear. Rush Limbaugh said: “It is simply impossible that Joe Biden was legitimately elected president. I just can’t believe it. I just can’t believe it. Intellectually, and when I look at what I have learned and seen in the last four or five days, there is just no way.
These latest comments seem to continue his efforts to go back on the remarks he made on Friday on his show. During that episode, Limbaugh discussed the comments of sports columnist Jason Whitlock on Tucker Carlson’s show, in which Whitlock said he hoped the love President Donald Trump felt for his supporters would prevail over the “hate” that drove Biden’s numbers up at the polling booths.
“The guy who won did not have any massive support. He was just the vessel, he was just the recipient of the anti-trump sentiment that was there,” Limbaugh said at the time. “Now he can tell himself all day long that he was elected president because he was.” Upon his return from the commercial break, Limabugh claimed he had not yet “admitted” the election or was not yet ready to declare Biden the winner.
In Monday’s show, Limbaugh went into more detail about why he did not believe Biden had fairly won the election and called for the protection of the country’s constitutional framework. To ensure the latter, he said that – along with Trump’s ongoing legal challenges – an official, state “investigation must take place.
In his long monologue, Limbaugh also reflected that the founding fathers knew that there would be people who would try to undermine democracy by stealing elections. He said: “They knew from the moment they founded the United States that they would pose a threat to a whole group of people or many groups of people around the world. They created defense mechanisms and insurance policies as best they could. They began by creating three branches of government to ensure a government of law and not of people. You have heard the sentence. A government of law, not of the people. Control and balance in our entire system”.
The host went on to argue that the values set forth by the country’s founders required a thorough and fair enumeration, and no one should simply rely on what is said or reported as fact. Limbaugh, who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in early 2020 from Donald Trump, said that only on the basis of more thorough evidence could an elected president be fairly determined.
“I have been urging people all weekend to name a czar of inquiry,” the conservative commentator continued. “This is a single person that the Trump administration sends out every day to keep the people of this country informed of the latest investigations in every state, of every allegation of electoral fraud in every state.
Aside from keeping citizens informed of the investigation on television, the Tsar proposed by Limbaugh would lead a staff of people who would check the vote count for irregularities. He claimed that such a person on the ground would “uncover a lot of information to report, there would be a lot of information to gather, there was a lot of fraud that took place.
Limbaugh then proposed the idea that an investigation into election fraud would make Trump “look like a fool” because that is what liberals want. He said, “Wouldn’t the left want there to be documentary proof that Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about? And the only way to get it is a full, serious and impartial investigation of what happened. Would you agree with me there, Democrats? Probably not. And if you’re not, why not? Why shouldn’t you – what are you afraid of being discovered?”
He concluded this particular line of thought by saying, “If you won this thing legitimately and if there was no harassment, we have all the time in the world. Al Gore had 37 days to fool around in a state. We have to do this right.”
The Organization of American States, a 28-strong team of international observers invited by the Trump administration, released a 20-page preliminary report on Monday that found no evidence of systematic election fraud and gave a positive assessment of the conduct of last week’s elections. The report criticized T
