The American left is "imploding" and becoming "deranged" over Donald Trump's win in the presidential election, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his show Friday.
Limbaugh provided an example in Texas, where two high school students acted out a skit in front of classmates that showed Trump being assassinated.
"I want you to imagine if this had happened eight years ago or four years ago and it was Barack Hussein Obama who had been portrayed as having been assassinated," Limbaugh said.
"Folks, I'm developing a theory, and I don't want to get too deep into it now. The left appears to me to be genuinely imploding, and I mean imploding to the point that low-information people are going to see how wacko they are. I think the nature of this implosion is going to be their marginalization."
Limbaugh added that many liberals have been "brainwashed" into believing that "conservatism equals a bunch of things it doesn't mean, but I don't know that they necessarily equate liberalism with greatness as a contrast."
"In the Obama years this kind of action against Republicans was mainstream, it was applauded, entertainers celebrated it, did this kind of thing, and everybody just accepted it," he continued.
"We now know that millions of people resented it and were offended by it and sent the Democrats and their sponsors packing. But now we're gonna have a different mind-set and a different makeup here attitudinally of the country."
