Limbaugh: You Can't Buy Or Blackmail Trump

Many GOP voters are supporting Donald Trump because mainstream Republicans do not stand up for conservative values, according to Rush Limbaugh.

“The people of this country are understandably fed up,” the conservative talk-show host said Monday on his radio program. “I refuse to believe that (Republican leaders) have undergone ideological transplants and have all become liberals or moderates, because none of it makes any sense. So that has created a giant void, and who is filling it but Trump?”

Newsmax reported that Limbaugh added: “There's no opposition to the gay marriage agenda, and we have to listen to a Supreme Court justice tell us that if we oppose it, we're bigots or whatever. The Iran deal, does anybody think this is actually good for the United States? Yet, there's no opposition to it, no serious opposition.”

He criticized Republicans for failing to even mount “fake opposition” to President Obama. “I refuse to believe, as I say, that these guys have become moderates or liberals overnight in our party. So there's something else going on to explain this,” the commentator said.

Limbaugh pointed out that the Republican Party cannot control Trump due to the candidate’s personal wealth. “They can't blackmail .. and they can't buy him, because if they could, they would be,” he said.
