Limbaugh humors sexist caller, says Ray Rice situation proves feminism is ‘artificial’

Published

on

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and one of his callers tried to minimize the response to the domestic violence case involving former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice on Tuesday, Media Matters reported.

“What this illustrates is what I’ve always said about feminism: it’s artificial, it isn’t real, because men and women aren’t equal,” Limbaugh said. “If feminism was actually what they are portraying it to be, there wouldn’t be this kind of outrage and shock.”

The “outrage” following the release of the footage of Rice knocking out his then-fiancee Janay Palmer this past February, Limbaugh said, was natural because it highlights differences between men and women that cannot be changed.

For his part, the caller, who identified himself as “James,” said he “didn’t see the big deal” with the footage showing Rice “cold-cocking” Palmer.

“If she had cold-cocked him, we wouldn’t have even heard about it,” James said. “I just don’t get it, I’m confused.”

Limbaugh quickly covered for the caller, saying, “Clearly you are being facetious here to illustrate a point,” and saying he clearly did not support Rice’s actions.

“I’m just confused,” James responded. “Maybe I’m a low-information voter. I’m being told that men and women are equal. Women should be on the firing line.”

“Hillary Clinton dodging sniper fire,” Limbaugh said.

Morning Joe’s Mika rains hell on ‘pathetic’ Trump for White House smear campaign against Dr Fauci

Published

on

MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski went off on an extended diatribe on Donald Trump and the White House for attempts to smear the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci based upon a report from NBC News.

According to the NBC report, "The White House is seeking to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, as President Donald Trump works to marginalize him and his dire warnings about the shortcomings of the U.S. coronavirus response."

Using that as a jumping-off point, the "Morning Joe" host called the president "pathetic," and blamed the massive and resurgent spread of the coronavirus solely on the president's bungling of the government's response from day one.
