Limbaugh: Washington's Been Taken Over By Wimpism

Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh has been around the block a time or twelve, and he’s not liking what he’s seeing right about now. So what’s sticking in the longtime radio host’s craw this time? He’s upset that there’s been so much backlash directed at president Donald Trump over his tough talk against North Korea. As Limbaugh sees it, the backlash is a sign of far greater problems in the nation’s capital.

As Fox News Insider shares, Trump has been receiving criticism for his pointed remarks on the escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea. Kim Jong Un has been making not so subtle threats, and Trump has remarked that the nation "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if he keeps his act up.

Many observers are concerned that Trump’s words will cause the tensions to escalate even further. Things seem to be cranked up to ten right about now as it is, and the general concern is that calling him out even further will lead to direct action. Diplomacy and sanctions are being pointed to as the right course of action by critics, but neither of those approaches have been working.

As Limbaugh sees it, the criticism for Trump is just a sign that there are greater problems afoot in the DC establishment.

“What does this mean?" he said during a recent broadcast. "It means that 'wimpism' has taken over the Washington establishment, that 'wussism' and 'wimpism' and 'pajama boyism' has taken over."

Never one to pull punches, Limbaugh wasn’t quite done.

“Would we run around acting afraid of a zit on a pig?" he asked.

Confusing analogies out of the way, Limbaugh would go on to claim that North Korea "can’t hit the side of a barn." He would also go on to blame the current state of affairs as the result of what he refers to as "pajama boy liberalism."

How we got here is irrelevant, as the situation at hand requires full attention. Those that choose to run around pointing fingers are completely missing the bigger picture: this is a dangerous situation that can get a whole lot worse in a heartbeat.

"What are we supposed to do, just sit here and wait until the real one is airborne and hope that being gentle and compassionate and unprovocative will stop this lunatic from doing what he’s doing? Is that what we’re to believe here?" Limbaugh continued.

Fair point, and there’s no easy answer to how the situation should be handled. Folks are on edge, and signs that the rhetoric is being ratcheted up even further leads to even more nervousness. That being said, the partisanship can be dialed down on both sides right about now. Constant bickering back and forth doesn’t help under normal circumstances as it is, but it’s particularly distracting at times of a potential national crisis. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that cooler heads prevail in the long run.
