Rush Limbaugh defends RG III
In a somewhat surprise move Rush Limbaugh recently defended RGIII because of media attacks on the Washington Redskins quarterback. Rush Limbaugh who was fired from ESPN years ago after controversial remarks about Donovan McNabb actually defended Robert Griffin 3.
Limbaugh had this to say according to Profootballtalk.com. “RGIII, the quarterback — don’t know for how long — of the Washington Redskins, came into the league amidst great fanfare,” Limbaugh said, via CBS DC. “First-round draft choice. Daniel Snyder, the owner of the Redskins, traded up to get RGIII, and he’s had some injuries and he just hasn’t maxed his potential. Well, some people think he’s bombed. And the media, it’s kind of strange, because here we have an African-American quarterback and yet the media has been kind of mean to RGIII. And one of the reasons is that it’s suspected that RGIII is a Republican.”
I was surprised that Limbaugh would defend RG III but it got his name in the news again and tried to show he isn’t racist. I kind of think that RG III gets most of his criticism for not living up to his potential myself.
