“If Obama had spent more time surveilling and monitoring (Syrian leader Bashar al-)Assad than he was spending time surveilling and monitoring Trump, then maybe the Obama Regime would have known that Assad still had weapons of mass destruction and was using them,” Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh said although the Syrian leader was the true enemy of the United States, Obama instead played politics.
“Do you realize Assad’s been doing this for seven years, folks? The gassing of Syrian citizens with chemical weapons and other WMD has been going on for seven years,” Limbaugh maintained. “And Obama’s out there surveilling Trump and whoever else during the Republican primary campaign and then the Trump transition.”
Limbaugh said Syria’s use of chemical weapons and Trump’s attack on a Russian ally have turned the narrative of who is the pawn of Russia on its head.
“The Democrats want you to believe that Trump’s in bed with Putin, right?” Limbaugh said. “They don’t have any evidence for it, but they’re convinced it happened, right? So Trump and Putin are buddy-buddy. Trump doesn’t ever criticize Putin. What in the world, then, would Trump be talking about going into Syria for? Because that’s a Russian ally. And if Trump is even talking about attacking Syria, then he can’t possibly be Putin’s best friend. And that’s according to the (media) and the rest of the Democrats. I mean, Trump attacking Syria undercuts the entire narrative that Trump and Putin are buddies.”
