The conservative radio host said Americans elected President Trump, not "bunch of health experts that we don't know."

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged people on Friday to trust President Donald Trump instead of “a bunch of health experts that we don’t know,” according to Media Matters, even as the coronavirus continues to spread across the U.S.

Limbaugh expressed his confidence in the U.S. overcoming the coronavirus with “somebody like Donald Trump,” who he claimed “has a history of solving problems” and would “actually lead the country through this.”

“You know, we've talked about the ‘Deep State’ all these years since Trump was elected — the Trump-Russia collusion, the FBI — well, the Deep State extends very deeply,” Limbaugh said. “And the American people did not elect a bunch of health experts that we don't know. We didn't elect a president to defer to a bunch of health experts that we don't know.”

“And how do we know they’re even health experts?” he asked. “Has there been any job assessment for them? They're just assumed to be the best because they're in government. But, these are all kinds of things that I've been questioning.”

Limbaugh, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during Trump’s State of the Union address this year, previously downplayed the seriousness of COVID-19, commenting that “the fatality rate is just 1% from this disease! So who cares if it’s 10 times more lethal than the flu?”

Most frightening is all the people who trust Rush. Rush reasoning appeals to who? What are the motives of people who promote this kind of thinking?

I wonder if he's willing to put his health where his mouth is. He looks to be in one of the higher risk groups....

Hopefully he’ll get it - and do a quick flip like Boris Johnson. Regardless, with stage 4 lung cancer he’s basically done and will was thankfully leave this mortal coil sooner than later.

HE said tRump was elected, "not a bunch of health experts that nobody knows." REALLY??? Like I'm gonna take any kind of medical advice from this pos. Speaking of, how's the lung cancer? For someone that sick and in the age bracket he's sure taking a chance milking that!🙄 But hey. His funeral. Can't say I'll be sorry. Anybody still listening to him in crazy!
