Wednesday on his radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh disputed the claim that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was more qualified than anyone to ever seek the nation’s highest office.
Instead, he argued Clinton could be facing impeachment immediately upon be elected if she emerges victorious in November.
Partial transcript as follows:
We keep hearing how “qualified” Hillary Clinton is to be president. I think it’s kind of like if somebody has to deny they’re a prostitute, then there must be some doubt about it. If you have to keep telling us that Hillary Clinton’s uber-qualified, there must be some doubt about it. It must not be self-evident. It must not be apparent. And the reason it is not apparent and self-evident is because it isn’t true. The woman is no more qualified to be president than anybody else.
She’s certainly not more qualified than George Washington or Abraham Lincoln or anybody else, which is how they are promoting her. We keep hearing how qualified she is. She’s well prepared to be president, more exposure to the president than anybody else. Hillary Clinton is the most prepared to be impeached in advance of any presidential candidate this country has ever had! Hillary Clinton will be elected to be impeached. Yeah, we continue to learn about the Justice Department and this email case.
By the way, I’m not being glib. If elected, Hillary Clinton could be impeached based on what we already know, and there’s plenty more yet to be discovered. Emails and other documents that could be used in impeachment proceedings are waiting to be found like Easter eggs laid out for three-year-olds. That’s why they destroyed the laptops. Don’t think it’s ’cause they get rid of evidence like narcotics. They got rid of those laptops to get rid of any evidence that we don’t know about yet.
