Rush Limbaugh revived the ridiculous attack that President Obama “doesn’t have time” and is “too busy” to attend his daily intelligence briefings, claiming that “other priorities,” like his re-election campaign and fundraising, are taking precedence over national security. In doing so, he also took a shot at actress Sarah Jessica Parker, an Obama supporter, for her appearance.
As we wrote on Thursday, and as Limbaugh himself noted, Obama receives national security briefings in other ways throughout his day, including reading the daily briefs and meeting with members of his Cabinet and national security experts.
While discussing the issue with a caller, Limbaugh purported to list the many fundraisers Obama is attending, including “Jay-Z fundraisers” and Vogue editor “Anna Wintour fundraisers” and “what’s her face, Sarah Jessica Parker.” He then interjected: “Sarah, eat something, will you?” before mentioning actor/director George Clooney.
Limbaugh has been heavily criticized for his decades-long misogynistic attacks on women. If you’ll recall, it is his personal attacks on Sandra Fluke that resulted in mass advertiser exodus and millions of dollars in lost revenue.
