Rush Limbaugh claims Fox News producers didn’t want him talking about what he believes to be the negative effects of immigration reform on the Republican Party during his Tuesday morning Fox & Friends appearance.
Limbaugh’s rare television appearance this morning (by phone) consisted mostly of the radio host discussing the unfolding protests in Egypt, the Affordable Care Act, and the GOP’s 2014 chances. But he told his radio listeners that he wanted to discuss his belief that pursuing the Latino vote through immigration reform is a futile effort for the Republicans.
“I told the people at Fox, I wanted to talk about this today three or four times,” he said. “And they wouldn’t do it. They were not interested in bringing this subject up.”
“They asked me, ‘What do you want to talk about?’” he recalled. “I didn’t tell them I wanted to talk about Egypt. I didn’t want to talk about Egypt. The first thing out of my mouth: I want to talk about immigration and the state of the Republican Party. Wouldn’t go there. I had to bring it up myself.”
“And that, by the way, is quite telling,” he concluded.
