Rush Limbaugh Shreds Obama For Hammering President Trump: He Got "Caught"

On Monday during his radio show, conservative Rush Limbaugh took time to speculate why former President Barack Obama has been spending so much time recently “trashing Trump” on how he has handled the coronavirus pandemic, saying that it is all a "deflection" from the recent Russia collusion revelations.
“All of a sudden” Obama is “trashing Trump on corona,” said Limbaugh. “He’s blaming Trump for coronavirus. … He’s blaming him for the he reaction to the virus. He’s blaming him for the chaotic set of circumstances in the lockdown.”
“Why is Barack Hussein O doing this?” Rush questioned.
According to Limbaugh, the real reason is because the recently released documents relating to the “Russia collusion” hoax show that Obama was well aware that the FBI was framing Mike Flynn.
Check out what Fox News Editor Gregg Re had to say about the recently released documents:
On January 5, 2017, Then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates attended an Oval Office meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, according to the newly declassified documents, including an FD-302 FBI witness report. They were discussing Russian election interference, along with national security adviser Susan Rice and other members of the national security council. After the briefing, Obama asked Yates and Comey to “stay behind,” and said he had “learned of the information about Flynn” and his conversation with Russia’s ambassador about sanctions. Obama “specified that he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”
“[N]one of this Trump-Russia collusion stuff could have happened without Obama knowing about it,” Limbaugh said. “These people that perpetrated it — the FBI and the DOJ, the Comeys, the McCabes, the Clapper’s, the Brennans, none of them could have done it without Obama knowing about it, at bare minimum knowing about it, and at worse directing it.”
The Daily Wire reports:
Citing the “famous Oval Office meeting on January 5th of 2017,” Limbaugh said one could go so far as to describe Obama as having “collaborated to invent the Russian collusion narrative.”
It’s all the negative press surrounding the recent reports on the FBI’s Flynn case, which is working in Trump’s favor, suggested Limbaugh, that has triggered Obama into “trying to focus on Trump and his supposedly horrible, chaotic response to the coronavirus.”
Limbaugh then offered evidence to why he felt that Obama was "discombobulated" about the recent Flynn reports.
While speaking on the reports, Obama said, "The news over the last 24 hours, I think, has been somewhat downplayed about the Justice Department dropping, uhh, charges against Michael Flynn and the fact there is no precedent that anybody can find for, uhh, someone who’s been charged with perjury, uhh, just gettin’ off scot-free. Uhh, that’s the kind of stuff where you, you begin to, uhh, get worried that basic, not just institutional norms, but, uhh, our basic understanding of rule of law, uhh, is, is, uhh is, uhh, is, uhh, is at risk."
“That’s the guy said to be smarter than anybody in the room,” Rush said. “He speaks and nobody can compete. That sounded pretty disjointed.”
