On Thursday night, President Donald Trump launched an airstrike on Syria in response to the deadly chemical terror attack launched by the Assad regime there this week that left over 100 dead. Afterwards, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh spoke out to slam Barack Obama, saying he should have been spying on Syria rather than Trump.
“If Obama had spent more time surveilling and monitoring (Syrian leader Bashar al-) Assad than he was spending time surveilling and monitoring Trump, then maybe the Obama Regime would have known that Assad still had weapons of mass destruction and was using them,” Limbaugh said, according to Western Journalism.
He went on to say that though the Syrian leader was the true enemy of the United States, Obama instead played politics.
“Do you realize Assad’s been doing this for seven years, folks? The gassing of Syrian citizens with chemical weapons and other WMD has been going on for seven years,” Limbaugh maintained. “And Obama’s out there surveilling Trump and whoever else during the Republican primary campaign and then the Trump transition.”
He also said that this has destroyed the mainstream media’s narrative that Trump is in bed with Putin.
“The Democrats want you to believe that Trump’s in bed with Putin, right?” Limbaugh said. “They don’t have any evidence for it, but they’re convinced it happened, right? So Trump and Putin are buddy-buddy. Trump doesn’t ever criticize Putin. What in the world, then, would Trump be talking about going into Syria for? Because that’s a Russian ally. And if Trump is even talking about attacking Syria, then he can’t possibly be Putin’s best friend. And that’s according to the (media) and the rest of the Democrats. I mean, Trump attacking Syria undercuts the entire narrative that Trump and Putin are buddies.”
In reality, it was Obama who was doing what the Russians wanted.
“One of the things that the Obama administration was celebrating was that they had completely removed chemical weapons from Syria,” he said. “There’s a problem now, though. Those chemical weapons were just used in an attack in Syria on Syrian citizens. So how could the Obama administration have gotten rid of all of these? They claimed they gave all of that chemical weapons stock to the Russians. Oh, yeah! Yeah, folks! The Obama administration — now the dire enemy of the Russians, victimized by the Russians — gave the chemical weapon stocks in Syria to the Russians. Which means the Russians probably gave it right back to the Syrians.”
“If Obama had not trusted and colluded with the Russians … (he) might have realized the Russians had lied to him about getting rid of all the Syrian WMD. Because the story was that Assad had gotten rid of them,” Limbaugh said. “Trump, the supposed Putin lover — Trump supposedly in the tank for Putin, Trump supposedly co-opted by Putin, Trump supposedly aligned with Putin — attacks Russia’s client state, Syria.”
“We need to remember that the Obama administration said they forced Assad to give up all of his chemical weapons. Remember, now, this is the same Obama administration that claimed the Iran deal will keep Iran from ever getting a nuclear bomb. How are you feeling about that now, folks?” Limbaugh concluded. “Susan Rice, back in January, assured everybody that everything was fine, that we had forced Assad to get rid of all the chemical weapons and the chlorine gas, weapons of mass destruction. Obviously, Assad didn’t. He’s laughing at Obama all the way, and Obama’s the same guy that tells us that the Iranians will not be developing a nuclear weapon.”
