Rush Limbaugh: Trump Is Better Than Expert Doctors On Coronavirus Crisis

Right-wing radio personality Rush Limbaugh is a big fan of President Donald Trump.

Now that we are in the throes of a global pandemic, he and others of his ilk have no choice but to praise Trump’s disastrous response to the whole thing.

On his Friday radio show, Limbaugh, who recently received the Medal of Freedom from Trump, opined on the situation and its handling. He went all-in against the doctors who know their stuff, like the infectious disease experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Limbaugh 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?

Well, they wear white lab coats, and they have been at the job for a while, and they are at the CDC, and they are at the NIH. Yeah, they have been there, and they are there, but have there been any job assessments for them? They are just assumed to be the best because they are in government. These are all kinds of things I have been questioning. And I have been watching people routinely accept whatever the authorities say.”

People would do well to listen to these doctors rather than to Donald Trump. After all, we already have had a situation of people listening to Trump, where a couple took the medication he touted as a prevention or cure for COVID-19. One of those people died, and the other wound up in intensive care.

She warned against listening to Trump on this issue after her ordeal, and rightfully so.

There are a lot of scams, crackpots, and people who just do not know what they are talking about out there right now. Don’t listen to them. Listen to real doctors. None of these charlatans know anything. That includes Donald Trump.
