Rush Limbaugh: We already have museums for women — ‘they are called malls’

Published

on

Radio host Rush Limbaugh mocked the idea of a museum honoring women’s accomplishments in what he called “satire,” Media Matters reported on Wednesday.

“We already have, ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know how many museums for women all over the country,” Limbaugh said. “They are called malls.”

Limbaugh was apparently taken aback by the news that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) office was the source of upcoming legislation regarding the construction of a “National Women’s History Museum” on or near the National Mall. A panel from the House Natural Resources Committee is scheduled to examine the plan next week, but the bill is expected to garner bipartisan support.

“All those war museums and memorials, those are museums to men,” Limbaugh said. “We’ve left the women out, that’s right.”

Limbaugh also facetiously imitated listeners who complain that they can’t get friends to listen to his foreign policy views because of these types of caustic comments.

“Satire, parody anyone?” he protested. “Actually, you know what this is? If I may veer back to it’s this war on women business. Hey, I could have said brothel but I didn’t. It’s pandering, it’s this war on women business.”

Limbaugh then accused Republicans of supporting the museum in hopes of currying favor with the “prototype single woman” upon whom Democrats rely.

“They think that this is going to nullify some of the negatives attached to this baseless claim that Republicans are conducting a war on women,” he said.

Listen to Limbaugh’s remarks, as posted on Wednesday, below.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that President Donald Trump held up Ukraine aid to pressure the country to investigate a conspiracy theory.

Mulvaney, who is also the White House budget director, told reporters Thursday that Trump's desire to investigate his belief that a DNC computer server was hidden in Ukraine was part of the reason congressionally approved military aid was held up.

However, he insisted that did not represent a quid pro quo arrangement.

"We do that all the time, get over it," Mulvaney said. "Politics is going to be involved in foreign policy, elections do have consequences."

Trump chief of staff announces G7 will be held at Trump’s golf course

President Donald Trump will have next year's G7 meeting at his own golf course in Doral, Florida, chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced on Thursday.

In announcing that the G7 meeting will be held at the Trump National Doral Miami, Mulvaney insisted that the president will not personally profit from holding the meeting there and claimed that it was simply the "best" place to hold the summit.

Mulvaney deflected reporters' questions about using the G7 summit to boost the golf resort's brand name by saying that the Trump brand name is already widely known throughout the world and doesn't need a G7 meeting to make it stronger.
