Throughout the Democrat primary, candidate Hillary Clinton has been hammered by opponent Bernie Sanders for taking large sums of money for speeches at institutions on Wall Street. The issue has caused her much grief during her campaign, with her consistently proclaiming she will be tough on the “big banks.”
To talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh, however, this issue may not just be a minor annoyance for Hillary Clinton; it could be key to keeping her out of the White House.
During his Monday radio broadcast, Limbaugh said Sanders supporters passionately hate Wall Street financial institutions, and they view Clinton as a sellout for taking their money. The potential consequences for this, Limbaugh said, can be seen in the recent poll that shows, “something like 20 percent of Bernie voters claim they’re gonna vote for Trump” if Sanders is not the Democrat nominee.

Limbaugh begin his monologue saying that while the “drive-by” media is not currently talking about this issue, soon they will have no choice.
“Do you realize that this woman, in the last two years, has made $21 million delivering speeches, mostly to banks? Twenty-one mil! I don’t think there’s a speech for less than $225,000 on the list, and they’re all listed. Some of them are as high as $400,000, but it’s generally in that range of 225, 250, up to $400,000. It’s every bank you’ve ever heard of and then some, and every hedge fund that you’ve ever heard of and then some. Every investment house that you’ve ever heard of. It’s $21 million in two years, speeches alone,” he said.
Limbaugh added, “So what’s the big deal? Well, most of these speeches are delivered before Wall Street firms. Read: Banks. Who do Bernie Sanders supporters despise? Banks. Corporate America. Hillary Clinton is owned by corporate America.”

According to Limbaugh, as far as Sanders’ supporters are concerned, “Hillary Clinton’s presidency, if it ever happens, has already been bought by corporate America, and who knows what the foreign donors are and how many there are. But that’s a $100 million that has been given to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.”
“The Clinton presidency has already been bought — meaning policies, initiatives, what have you, have already been bought — by foreign governments, foreign entities, and United States corporate entities and banks. And this is the kind of thing that your average left-wing Democrat voter is going to learn,” Limbaugh said.
