Rush Limbaugh says the media is treating former President George H.W. Bush nicer in death than it did in life.
Limbaugh made his comments on "Fox News @ Night."
"They never treated him this way when he was president," he said. "They were vicious to him like they are vicious and partisan to every Republican. I think its just a vehicle for them to be able to contrast what they think [President Donald] Trump is versus the way they are telling us Bush was.
'Since the current objective is to get rid of Donald Trump, however they can do it – driving down public opinion . . . Anything they can do to contrast Trump with what they say was the greatness and the way it ought to be.
"They celebrate Bush because [they say] he was bipartisan, he went against his own party. That's what made him a good guy. It's just phony."
