Rush Limbaugh: Barack Obama 'Got Everything He Wanted' Because He's Black

Claims lawmakers were afraid of being called racist.

Right-wing talk-show host Rush Limbaugh claims any legislative success President Barack Obama enjoyed during his first year in office was because of the color of his skin.

“You have the first African-American president. You have everybody falling all over themselves to acknowledge that, to reward that,” Rush told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” adding: 

“Obama was going to get everything he wanted in the first year because if anybody opposed it, they were going to be accused of being a racist, or a bigot, or who knows what.”

Limbaugh also blamed Democrats for “driving this business that the Russians hacked the election” because “they just can’t accept that they lost.”

See the full interview above. The comments about Obama take place at about 8:25.
