Rush Limbaugh couldn't help himself on Thursday after news broke that a Malaysian Airlines jet had crashed in eastern Ukraine.

The radio show host called the disaster "an opportunity" for media outlets to distract viewers from the controversy surrounding President Obama and US border security. He suspected that CNN had already swept the immigration crisis under the rug and retreated back to its "wall-to-wall" coverage of the plane.

Limbaugh called the whole thing "very eery."

"Talk about an opportunity to abandon the bad Obama news at the border," he said. "I'm not suggesting anything other than how the media operates."
