‘Fascinating things in the bowels of the decision desk’ at Fox News

With no official winner declared in the 2020 presidential race, talk-radio star Rush Limbaugh said President Trump would, in fact, win the election when the final results are accurately sorted out.
“Trump is going to win this,” Limbaugh said confidently on his national broadcast Wednesday. “We did, we have, we’ve reelected Trump. … This doesn’t mean that I’m not livid, and it doesn’t mean that I’m not ticked off and mad like all the rest of you are, because I am.”
“Donald Trump was not repudiated last night. Donald Trump was reelected last night. Time will show us this.”
Limbaugh, a staunch supporter of Trump and fellow resident of Palm Beach, Florida, said, “We were winning big last night. … That’s why they stopped the counting.”
“When they stopped counting, it means they’re looking for Democrat votes. It means they don’t have Democrat votes. It means they gotta go find ’em. We are wise to their ways now.”
“Why is it that every state that is not a swing state run by Democrats can keep their act together on Election Night?” he asked rhetorically.
“The Democrats, I can’t tell you how depressed they are today that Trump was not repudiated,” he continued. “That’s what they really wanted to happen.”
He said the Democratic mantra of “Count every ballot” is not legitimate. Will President Trump win the 2020 election once all is sorted out?
“‘We’re not going to count every ballot. We’re going to count every legitimate vote. It’s a big difference. … We’re gonna win playing by the rules, despite the fact the other side does not.”
Limbaugh also suggested Fox News called the state of Arizona too early and mistakenly for Joe Biden as personal payback by the network after Trump had publicly criticized the network on “Fox and Friends” this week.
“It’s personal. It was absolutely personal. But Trump’s gonna end up winning Arizona. … I think he already has. It’s just a matter of this playing out.”
“That Arizona call, the investigation of that … I think it’s gonna reveal some fascinating things that are going on in the bowels of the decision desk at the Fox News Channel.”
He called the outcome of huge support for the president “a devastating night” for Democrats.
“It was so huge the Democrats never saw it coming,” he noted. “These people are vindictive. They are single-mindedly hateful … They have been waiting, and they have been dreaming, they have been hoping, they have been planning on, they have been counting on you and every other American telling Donald Trump to go to hell yesterday — and that didn’t happen. … They literally thought Trump was going to be sent packing.”
Limbaugh said he talked with White House officials who say anywhere from two-thirds to 70 percent of Arizona votes are coming to the president, meaning that state could be counted in Trump’s favor.
Limbaugh urged his listeners: “The American way of life is going to be preserved. Keep the faith. The best days of our country are still ahead of us.”
“We want love and peace in our lives. We want our lives to be pleasant.”
