Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh was skeptical the Democratic Party was on the ascendency given the party’s lack of a bench.
Limbaugh said things were bad enough for Democrats that their branding problems were worse the beleaguered brands of United Airlines and Pepsi.
“The Democrats are being told that the next great Clinton conquest will come from Chelsea Clinton, and they’re laughing privately about that. Hillary’s loss was so bad that do you know who the most popular Democrat in the country is right now?” Limbaugh said. “Bernie Sanders. And he’s not even a Democrat. He’s an independent. How old is he, 84? How old is Bernie Sanders? Is he in his 70’s still? Well, okay. I thought he had crossed the threshold of 80. It doesn’t matter. At the moment, there’s nobody the Democrats can turn to. Seventy-five. He looks 80.”
“Hillary’s loss was so bad, the Democrat Party national committee has put — well, I think that’s enough,” he continued. “United and Pepsi think they’ve got brand problems. I’m telling you, the Democrats have a much greater branding problem right now than even United Airlines. Because at least United is still flying. And Pepsi is still pouring.
