Nationally syndicated conservative talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, captured the fury of conservatives who watched Republicans kill efforts to repeal Obamacare, accusing the GOP of colluding with Democrats in trying to ‘take out’ President Trump.
After the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) fell through on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pressed for a straight repeal bill. That also fell through.
Three GOP senators refused to support repeal without replacement. This, despite the fact that the Senate – including two of the three Senators who are now opposed – passed a straight repeal bill in 2015.
Limbaugh shredded Republican lawmakers as being part of the “Washington establishment” that is plotting a “silent coup” to take out President Trump.

The radio host even went as far as to say that the election of Trump “has never been about” the president “unifying the Republican party in order to beat the Democrats.”
“That’s been the mistake,” Limbaugh said. “That’s not the fight here. The fight is Donald Trump and his cadre and you, the Trump base, versus the Washington establishment. It has always been that and nothing more.”
Later during the airing, Limbaugh doubled down on remarks that something nefarious is afoot within the “Washington establishment.”
“We’re in the midst of a silent coup,” he said. “These people are trying to take this president out. And everybody understands that.

“Why … do you think that the same people trying to destroy Donald Trump are going to help him get rid of Obamacare?” Limbaugh asked.
He added that they won’t help him achieve other legislative victories either, such as tax reform or the border wall.
“They are going to have to be defeated, not worked with,” Limbaugh implored. “There isn’t any cooperation.”
