Limbaugh to ESPN: “If You Wanna Put Politics Into Sports You Need Professionals LIKE ME!”

RUSH: There was a shareholders meeting — you know, ABC owns Disney, and Iger got up there and there were some shareholders asking about the politicization of ESPN, and Iger denied it. No, you’re crazy, there’s none of that going on. I don’t know why you would ask that. Denied it.

I think you’ve got a bunch of rank amateur sportswriters trying to do politics that don’t know what they’re talking about. Like I said, ESPN, if you want to put politics into sports you need professionals like me to be able to do it and do it the right way. You guys are throwing politics here into every discussion and half the time, if not more, it’s irrelevant to the event, to the players, whatever you’re talking about. Once it starts becoming gratuitously anti-Trump or anti-Republican, you’re not helping yourself here.

And in many instances these left-wing sports anchor reporters, broadcasters, whatever are pretend political thinkers. They’re hacks just trying to get along with whatever they think the majority of their business thinks. You need seasoned professionals. And I of course am the trailblazer here. I got blown out of ESPN for being accused of doing what ESPN is now promising and trying to do. You talk about trailblazer, you talk about pioneers taking the arrows, I did. And it wasn’t even that political. It was cultural. It never got conservative-Republican, Democrat-liberal, any of that. It was pure cultural. For two days nobody noticed. Then they did and all hell broke loose. He-he-he-he-he-he-he. If you want to know how to do it, ESPN, give me a call.
