Rush Limbaugh Reveals Which Major GOP Candidate, Ben Carson, Isn’t ‘Qualified’ to Be President.
Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Rush Limbaugh was asked by host Chris Wallace to comment on some of the major players in this election cycle’s hunt for the White House.
When Carson’s name was mentioned, Limbaugh said Carson is “one of the most decent human beings in this country. He’s one of the finest men. I’ve met him. The things he has done, the places he’s come from … and I cringe when I see that they (the media) are trying to destroy him.”
Wallace asked Limbaugh if Carson is “equipped to be president.”
“Probably not at this stage,” said Limbaugh, “but any of these Republicans running would be better than Hillary or better than anything we’ve got now. So, based on that comparison, yes. I would vote for him if it was up to him and Hillary. Absolutely! Without a doubt.”
Regarding Republican front-runner Donald Trump, Limbaugh said, “Donald Trump is, I think, doing a great service. He is showing that you do not have to fear attacks from the media. He is showing you do not have to fear being politically correct or violating political correctness.”
On Ted Cruz, who has surged to No. 2 in Iowa in a new poll, Limbaugh called the Texas senator “brilliant and conservative through and through. Trustworthy, strong, confident, leader, and somebody on whom you can totally depend.”
