Rush Limbaugh Suggests Coronavirus Deaths Being Inflated to Hurt Economy
Conservative talk radio host and recent Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree Rush Limbaugh suggested on Thursday that deaths from coronavirus were being inflated so that governments that have implemented social distancing restrictions could further “the policies they have put in place.”
“It’s admittedly speculation, but his point, what if we are recording a bunch of deaths to coronavirus which really should not be chalked up to coronavirus?” Limbaugh wondered aloud. “People die on this planet every day from a wide variety of things.”
“But because the coronavirus is out there, got everybody paranoid, governments are eager, almost, to chalk up as many deaths to coronavirus as they can because then it furthers the policies they have put in place by virtue of their models,” he concluded.
