Russia had nothing to so with it.
In a rare appearance on FOX News Sunday, Rush Limbaugh addressed a number of Trump related issues including the reasons for his loyal support, his battle with the media, and who’s obstructing him in Washington.
Here are some details from FOX News:
Limbaugh blasts news media attacks on Trump as pointless, ‘kind of comical’
Conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh on Sunday assailed the news media, suggesting its efforts to “destroy” Republican President Trump are “comical” and dismissing stories about Russia purportedly influencing the 2016 White House race in Trump’s favor.
“The media did not make Donald Trump, and they can’t destroy him,” Limbaugh said on “Fox News Sunday.”
He suggested some major, liberal-leaning news agencies “have a formula … a blueprint for destroying Republican political officials they don’t like.”
“It’s not going to work on Trump,” Limbaugh continued. “It’s kind of comical to watch.”
To be sure, a big part of Trump’s winning campaign strategy was to argue that the liberal media was backing Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and that it failed to recognize the concerns of Trump and his supporters.
“Trump has a connection with his voters that most politicians don’t,” Limbaugh said. “And that connection .. is not anything that anybody else can break.”
He suggested Trump won because Americans had fears about the direction in which the country was going, not because Russia meddled in the race.
The video is 12 minutes long but I recommend watching the whole thing. Rush provides analysis here as only he can.

Rush Limbaugh is exactly right about how Donald Trump can fix his problems
Donald Trump’s White House is lurching from one controversy to the next of late. Russia! Mike Flynn! Andy Puzder! Leaks! Travel ban! Tweets!
A candidate who somehow was able to turn chaos into political gold in the context of the 2016 presidential campaign is struggling mightily to do the same as president. It feels as though Trump is always on defense, always fighting battles on disadvantageous ground.
Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk radio host, has a solution — and a very good one — to Trump’s current malaise. Here’s an excerpt of Limbaugh’s advice from his show on Wednesday:
I’m gonna tell you what I think is the best thing Donald Trump could do. Just focus on repealing Obamacare, and then focus on tax reform, and then just move full speed ahead on the domestic agenda. Make tracks. Do it obviously. Bring in people, have meetings, bring the Republicans up, the Democrats up, as the president in a room telling them: This is why we were all elected, it’s why you lost, this is what we’re gonna do. Work together to move these tax cuts forward, reform the tax code, repeal Obamacare.
This is a valid point. Trump will get a wide berth from voters on the small stuff if he delivers solid results.
