While Democrats are busily chastising Donald Trump for calling American gun-owners to action in the upcoming election, Rush Limbaugh has uncovered a rather stunning clip of Hillary Clinton insinuating something far worse back in 2008.
The comments were made in May of that year, while Clinton was discussing her 2008 primary fight against then-Sen. Barack Obama.
Even though Clinton only trailed Obama by roughly 150 pledged delegates at that time, there were some who were saying she should have dropped out of the race and concede the nomination to Obama.
“Between my opponent and some in the media, uh, there has been this urgency to end this. You know, my husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of the June,” said Clinton.
“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” Clinton added, which some people at the time took to mean the possibility of an Obama assassination made it practical for her to say in the race.
“What do you think that’s a reference to?” Limbaugh asked Tuesday. “They’re urging her to get out of the race, and Obama’s got an insurmountable lead, and she says, ‘No, Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June, and it’s not even June yet! It’s May here. So somebody may be assassinated in June. So I’m staying in!
“I mean, folks, what Trump said yesterday doesn’t even compare, and I doubt that hardly anybody’s aware that Hillary even said this back in 2008. We played the audio; that’s why we got the clip,” he said.
Limbaugh pointed out that another high-profile Democrat has made a reference to people taking his guns that seems to have been forgotten.
“And, by the way, here’s one more from Vice President Bite Me (Biden). September 20th of 2008 — this is before the election — he’s out there in Castlewood, Virginia, at a campaign event and, as part of his remarks, Vice President Bite Me blurted out this,” said Limbaugh, who proceeded to play audio of Joe Biden from 2008.
“I guarantee ya, Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns! So don’t buy that malarkey! Don’t buy that malarkey! They’re gonna start peddlin’ that to ya! I got two! If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem,” said an irate Joe Biden out on the campaign trail.
Biden’s comment seemed to imply a willingness to use lethal force — should the president try to take his guns — and even doubled down on his comments by expressing his proficiency with firearms.
“I like that little over-and-under, you know. I’m not bad with it. So give me a break,” said Biden, waving his hands while shouting.
“OK, now, what is that?” asked Limbaugh. “Well, all that is is a Second Amendment guy. He might have been impersonating one but that’s a Second Amendment guy saying, ‘You’re not taking my guns, dude!’”
“So he’s even alluding to the fact that if Barack Obama comes for his guns, his Beretta is coming out. So who’s Biden talking about shooting here? So you got Biden and you’ve got Hillary both talking about actually shooting somebody, or somebody being shot with guns, something that Trump did not do,” he concluded.
