Limbaugh: Scott Walker Should Say He Quit College Because He ‘Didn’t Want To Be Accused Of Rape’

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh offered some unsolicited advice on Thursday to fellow college dropout Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R).

Limbaugh said during his show that if Walker, a potential presidential contender, were to be asked about why he left college, he should respond this way: “I left college because I didn’t want to be accused of rape someday.”

“Now he can’t say that, of course,” Limbaugh continued. “But, I mean, just ram it right down their throats. They’re trying to create this ‘rape culture’ on the campus.”

“It seems like any man that goes to college could randomly be accused of committing rape!” he added.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
