Rush Limbaugh blames Trump/Russia investigation, Hillary Clinton and Democrats for Florida school shooting

Rush Limbaugh blames Trump/Russia investigation, Hillary Clinton and Democrats for Florida school shooting

RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Is it possible, ladies and gentlemen, that the FBI may not have the resources to deal with complaints like this? How many people at the FBI are still trying to prove that Trump colluded with Russia? How many people the FBI are being forced to continue to work and waste time on the Hillary Clinton bought and paid for dossier and trying to link it to Trump?

“Rush, you better be careful. You’re politicizing.” I’m not politicizing anything. I’m reacting. I’m not starting anything here. But when I hear that the FBI knew about this shooter well in advance and didn’t do anything, I have to ask, why? And then I start trying to answer my own question “why.” And the first answer you get is, “Well, the kid hadn’t done anything yet. There’s nothing we can do. And besides that, we’re federal, and this is a state and local issue. We don’t have any jurisdiction down there. There’s nothing we can do.”

Well, maybe, but do you have anybody that could’ve done anything anyway, or how many people are still trying to prove after a year and a half here that Trump colluded with Russia? How many people still tracking down Hillary Clinton’s opposition research? In fact, folks, if you want to blame Trump for this, I could just as easily turn it around and blame it on Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton and the Democrats have the FBI so occupied tracking down something that didn’t happen, they may not have the resources to pull this kid off the street.

How does that sound to you leftists? Absurd? Well, it isn’t.
