Talk-radio superstar Rush Limbaugh says the front-runner for the 2020 Democratic Party nomination for president “as we sit here today” is Bernie Sanders.
And his opponent for that nomination will be Michelle Obama.
“You disagree with me or you don’t believe it? Well, believe it, because the Democrat Party is no more the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is the party of American communism,” he said on his radio program Monday.
“And if you look at what Bernie Sanders stands for, where did Bernie Sanders honeymoon? Moscow. Bernie Sanders sidles up to the traditional enemies of this country. And Bernie Sanders is the most popular right now Democratic presidential candidate in the Democrat Party. It isn’t Joe Bite Me, and it isn’t Al Franken. And it isn’t Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren, and it’s not Kamala Harris. It is Bernie Sanders. And it’s not even close. Bernie Sanders, hands down.”

Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party nomination in 2016 in a race in which Democratic officials admitted they were working on behalf of Clinton during the primary.
Former Democratic National Committee chairman Donna Brazile, said Limbaugh, now is “trying to sweep the Clintons off the stage to pave the way for Michelle Obama.”
That sentiment represents the part of the party that has “just totally not gone over to full-fledged communism,” he said.
“I think they believe that somebody like Michelle (My Belle) Obama is the only person that can stop Bernie Sanders.”

Limbaugh told his audience he can hear the comments, though.
“‘Bernie Sanders, Rush, are you losing it? You’re crazy.’ I’m not. When I ran across the stuff that made me realize this, I had the same reaction you’re having. Bernie Sanders, isn’t it over? Isn’t it been there, done that? No. I’ll give you an example. Don’t flinch at this, either,” he said.
“Susan Sarandon. I know, Hollywood actress, brain-dead, all the other. Have you heard what she has been saying lately? She has been denigrating Hillary Clinton like we do. That it would have been a disaster if Hillary Clinton had been elected. We would be at war, and she went on to just trash Hillary and the Clintons and all this other stuff. Well, she voted for Jill Stein. She wasn’t a big fan of Barack Obama. But I think she would be part of the crowd that might say gravitate toward Michelle Obama,” he explained.
“Believe me, there is a segment — I don’t know how big it is, but it’s not small in the Democrat Party that wants an Obama back in, and they’re not … particularly fond of Hillary, and they don’t want Bernie Sanders,” he said.
The image presented by the media is “an image and picture of the Democrat Party as solid, as unified, purposeful, not in any trouble whatsoever. They are on the cusp of getting rid of Trump, they’re on the cusp of winning in 2018, the House and the Senate. They’re gonna take Congress back. Then they’re gonna win the White House in 2020,” he said.
He explained the media story line is that “the Democrats are back and the Democrats are loaded for bear, and the American people want the Democrats back, and the American people feel bad they didn’t elect the Democrats in 2016.”
“They’re in heap big doo-doo. And they remain in heap big doo-doo because the Democrat Party is actively positioned in such a way that you’re not out of bounds if you characterize much of what they’re doing and many of them as anti or untraditional American.”
