When Oprah speaks people listen.
And you can count on one of those listening being Rush Limbaugh.
As we reported earlier today, when asked about racism affecting President Obama, Lady O told a BBC interviewer that: “there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he is African-American.”
She also gave the example of GOP Congressman Joe Wilson shouting “You lie!” at the president during a Congressional address.
Like we said, Limbaugh was listening and like a hungry dog looking at a fresh piece of meat, he couldn’t resist. He had to go in on Oprah.
“Then how the hell did you become who you were?” Limbaugh said. “Why hasn’t anyone in your audience ever said ‘You lie!’? Because you have.”
