Rush Limbaugh Says Trump Health Experts Are Deep State Agents
Every time Donald Trump has held a coronavirus press conference, he’s been joined by at least one health expert. Whether it be Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx or even Dr. Ben Carson, these figures have helped allay some of the public’s fears.
According to Rush Limbaugh, though, these experts are not there to educate the public, but to discredit Donald Trump. The radio host took to the air on Friday to tell his listeners that the health experts are part of the “deep state.”
The recent Medal of Freedom recipient said:
“You know, we’ve talked about the “Deep State” all these years since Trump was elected — the Trump-Russia collusion, the FBI — well, the Deep State extends very deeply. And the American people did not elect a bunch of health experts that we don’t know. We didn’t elect a president to defer to a bunch of health experts that we don’t know. And how do we know they’re even health experts?”
Limbaugh continued, “Well, they wear white lab coats, and they’ve been in the job for a while, and they’re at the CDC and they’re at the NIH, and they’re up, well — yeah, they’ve been there, and they are there. But has there been any job assessment for them? They’re just assumed to be the best because they’re in government. But, these are all kinds of things that I’ve been questioning.”
