Just got to listen to Rush Limbaugh – the guy is fantastic!

America’s most popular conservative voice on the radio doesn’t think Donald Trump is afraid of Megyn Kelly nor Fox News at all.
Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday that Trump plays by his own rules and he was not going to give Fox News “the gun and the bullet” to hit him with when he believes they are showing bias against him.
In this business one of the games is that when the media calls, you answer, and when the media wants you, you go, and when the media is going to host a debate and it’s part of a Republican presidential campaign, you go. You just do it, no matter what the media’s done to you in the past, no matter what you think of it, whether you want to go or not, you go. That’s the game.
Trump is so far outside this game, he’s so far outside the rules, he’s never been a player in this game. He’s always been an outsider. I heard people on Fox last night talking about this. “Who does he think he is? He can’t control the media.” I got news for you: He is controlling the media, and it’s his objective. He is controlling the media. He controls the media when he’s not on it. He controls the media when he is on it. He controls the media when he’s asleep. Nobody else has been able to do anything like this short of the Kennedys, and they’re pikers compared to the way Trump is doing this.
Limbaugh spoke about the rumor prior to the first Fox debate that the news channel was “given orders by the Republican establishment” to do a hit job on Trump, and the front-runner believed Megyn Kelly was doing just that.
The radio host said that by not going to the debate, Trump will still end up “owning” it.
Some guy not even present will end up owning the entire event, and the proof of that is Fox News last night. I have to tell you, folks, this is where this gets tough for me. I was stunned watching Fox News last night. Fox News was acting like they had been jilted at the altar. If it had been me — and this is easy to say — if it had been me and Donald Trump makes a big to-do about not showing up for the debate, report the story and move on. Talk about Ted Cruz. Go talk about the other candidates. Go talk about Hillary and the FBI. There’s a lot of news out there. But don’t devote the rest of the night to how a candidate’s not showing up because of you. I mean, the network, not just Megyn Kelly.
Then they bring in the analysts to analyze what it all means. I’m watching this and I’m really — very hard for me to say here — I’m stunned watching this. Because everybody has to know, everybody that’s involved has to know that this is exactly one of the things Trump is hoping to achieve. Then bringing Michael Moore on that program to mock Trump.
