Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh made clear today that what was supposed to be a nightmare debate for Donald Trump last night turned into a nightmare for Democrats instead.
Rush explained, "The purpose of last night — and it's a failure today — was to take Trump out forever, not just his political campaign. Donald Trump the human being was to be humiliated and destroyed and rendered so humiliated and embarrassed he would never be seen in public again, and that's the lesson any further, additional, future challenger to the establishment was to take from last night. The message is, 'Don't mess with us. Do not come after us. We'll take you out, and you'll lose not just an election. You'll lose everything important to you. We will destroy you!'"
But Rush said Trump destroyed their efforts unbelievably well and put Hillary Clinton on the defense for the majority of the event.
As for whether he thinks Trump's apologies for his crude sexual remarks back in 2005 and his debate performance last night were enough to save his embattled campaign, Rush admitted, "Now, I don't know if he beat [the elephant in the room] back to the point his campaign survives. We won't know this probably until Election Day. We're not gonna have any idea. But we know that Trump and his campaign survive and have new energy and are continuing to roll today. In that context, this was a huge win."
Do you agree with Rush on this?
