Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh has been a firm supporter of Republican President Donald Trump, and he is also aware of the effect Trump’s “change agent” status has had on the Republican Party as a whole.
Limbaugh has stated how he wants the Republican Party to serve President Trump and his agenda, and has been dismayed over how some Republican lawmakers in Washington who are unable to put their egos on check have been putting up needless obstacles to Trump’s plans.
Thankfully, he pointed out how Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has been taking over the Republican party in its current leadership void, to Trump’s benefit. Explained Rush on his show, “I think what Bannon is doing is slowly but surely taking over the role of the Republican Party. The Republican Party is obviously not with Trump on balance — you have some in the House who are — but the Republican Party on balance is not with Trump.”
He continued, “Some people make an argument that there really isn’t a Republican Party left. I mean, there are people who call themselves that and they go out and raise money and they raise a lot. But whereas the party used to be known for one, two, or three very serious things, they’re not anymore.”
Bannon’s influence was felt a few weeks ago when Roy Moore, the candidate he backed in the Alabama special election Republican primary, soundly defeated establishment-backed Luther Strange. What do you think about Bannon’s rising influence in the GOP?
