Rush Limbaugh worries that Amanda Berry’s baby might have gotten welfare

Leave it to a Republican icon to find a new, sordid twist to the Amanda Berry kidnap story.

You see, Rush Limbaugh was watching TV.  And there was a show where a couple kidnapped underage girls, and then used the girls in order to get welfare payments from the government.

Rush-LimbaughSo Limbaugh expressed concern as to whether the kidnappers of Amanda Berry and the other two women got welfare as well.

Limbaugh noted, as part of his concern, that the kidnappers supposedly voted for Obama.

Yes, three women were rescued from human slavery, and Rush Limbaugh is worrying about whether the one woman’s child got welfare while being held captive.

Raw Story has some of the transcript, and you can find the audio below:

“But as it so happens, I happened last night to watch Hawaii Five-0 on CBS,” he explained. “Hawaii Five-O‘s premise last night was kidnapped girls held until they were 18 and then let go or killed — well, always killed — by a couple doing it for the welfare benefits.”

“Now I don’t know what happened in Cleveland, but I couldn’t help but make the connection. I mean, if everybody else in the low-information crowd is going to use what happens on TV for reality, why can’t I?”

Limbaugh added: “Three brothers, but not related the the three women, have been arrested in Cleveland — which voted Obama. Not that that’s got anything to do with anything!”

Welcome to the Republican party. (h/t FreakOutNation)
