Rush Limbaugh faced a moment of truth.
It was not was Limbaugh was used to.
And Rush Limbaugh was asked this big question about his idea to replace Trump.
Even if Donald Trump wins a second term the Republican Party will be looking toward what is next in the 2024 Presidential Election.
A new standard-bearer will emerge.
During a recent broadcast Limbaugh engaged with callers in speculation as to who that might be.
But on a subsequent program a caller challenged Limbaugh on looking past this election.
The caller insisted that if the GOP didn’t fight for Trump and expose the voter fraud he believed cost Trump the election, talking about the Republican Party’s next act was an exercise in futility.
“Well, a caller yesterday was asking, was posing that question. There was some discussion on it. And, you know, and there’s been some talk about 2022, 2024. But what’s the point of discussing any future election if we don’t deal with what’s just happened?” the caller asked Limbaugh.
Limbaugh responded that he completely agreed and that if the Republican Party did not backup President Trump in fighting for the integrity of the vote then all bets are off in future elections on the Democrats committing massive voter fraud.
“Oh, well, look, you’re preaching to the choir on that. My point about this from the very beginning has been the integrity of the Constitution, the integrity of our electoral system, and the Democrats are the ones that have blown it up. And if this is not resolved — and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna be — then how can we assume that any election down the road is legit and fair? We’re on the same page here. But that still doesn’t mean that it doesn’t matter who’s gonna be the leader of a political movement. You’re still gonna have to have that,” Limbaugh responded.
The caller once again pressed Limbaugh on this being a hill to die on because he believed Trump won even more than 74,000,000 votes and was cheated out of his win.
Limbaugh again agreed and stated that if the Republican Party did not march all the way with Donald Trump it could depress the GOP vote in future elections.
“Okay. Yeah, I’ve heard some people think — Trump maybe even said 80. I’m not sure where I’ve heard that number bandied about. Yeah, look, I totally understand the sentiment that you have. I understand the frustration that you have and to say that this is a hill to die on, that if we accept this, meaning if we accept Biden as president, then we’ve cooked our own goose, and that we are just living in a pretend world, to use your term, where our votes supposedly matter but they actually don’t, because we will have been hoodwinked and cheated and so forth and so on, short of something that prevents Biden being elected going forward,” Limbaugh shot back.
The first test of this hypothesis is the two Georgia Senate runoff elections on January 5.
President Trump and his supporters believe voter fraud stole the state for Joe Biden.
And the President is worried that the state’s Republican Governor and Secretary of State are enraging the GOP base by rolling over and certifying what President Trump sees as fraudulent results without putting up a fight.
The Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are maintaining GOP base enthusiasm by supporting the President’s challenges and urging Republicans to turnout to send a message of support for President Trump’s legacy.
If they win it will be because they harnessed the anger the caller was expressing.
