Rush Limbaugh accused President Obama of treating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu like a “white policeman from Ferguson, Missouri” on his radio show Tuesday.
Limbaugh connected the two leaders’ relationship with the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Trayvon Martin in Florida and Eric Garner in New York City.
You look at how Obama has treated and does treat Netanyahu, you would think that Netanyahu was a white policeman from Ferguson, Missouri. I mean, that’s the conclusion that you would come to. Or that he was one of the cops that choked Eric Garner, or he was one of the jurors in the Trayvon Martin case.
Limbaugh said that Obama is trying to “poison the jury pool” for Netanyahu’s speech, “just like they tried to do that in Ferguson with the grand jury, they tried to poison that grand jury pool there too. And just like they did with Trayvon Martin in Florida, just like they did in New York with Eric Garner.”
Speaking of the Obama administration, Limbaugh said, “They don’t like Netanyahu. This administration’s foreign policy apparatus: Israel is the problem, just like in the rest of the world the United States is and has been.
“The fact is, Obama is a footnote in history if the media hasn’t continually lied for him.”
His Twitter fans agree.
Rush is absolutely right! http://t.co/iDB78Tn9sa
