Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh argued that “Carly Fiorina is rocking” and that if the media were “consistent,” “we would all have to now vote for Ben Carson” on Monday.
“So, the Republicans running for president now include a woman, Carly Fiorina. I tell you what, too, Carly Fiorina is rocking. She has undergone a change like I can’t believe. Back in 2008, when she was — it might have been 2012, I forget which, she was with McCain along with Meg Whitman in 2008. Then, in 2012 she kind of went solo. But she — my memory, anyway, is that she was a McCain establishment-type Republican. Carly Fiorina now has crossed over and there’s nothing — establishment/centrist about her, particularly in the way she is describing Hillary and liberalism in general. It’s quite refreshing actually.”
He added, “so, we have a woman. Dr. Benjamin Carson announced today, who, by the way, worked in Baltimore at Johns Hopkins. He’s from Detroit. He’s African-American. And we have two Latinos in the Republican roster. I guess we could start calling ourselves the Rainbow Party. Well, we’ve got Rubio and Cruz, that’s who they are. We’ve got a woman. We have an African-American. We have two Latinos. And it doesn’t count, it doesn’t matter, it may as well not be the case because none of that matters to the Drive-By Media. I mean, folks, if they were consistent, we would all have to now vote for Ben Carson. He’s black, he has worked and lived in Baltimore. Voting for anybody else would be racist, at least according to the media and the rest of the Democrat Party.”
