Rush Limbaugh says Trump will be re-elected because Americans are 'tired of watching their cities burn'

RUSH Limbaugh reckons the pundits will be proved wrong – and Trump will win because voters are "fed up of lies" in the media.

The veteran radio host – a long-time friend of the President's – also said people are tired of "watching their cities burn" during BLM protests.

Limbaugh, 69 – who has terminal cancer –  gave his Election Day verdict on Fox & Friends today.

He believes early voters could be eager to reelect Trump and are fed up with what they see as biased media coverage of the administration.

He said: “I look at the conventional wisdom and I make it a point never to follow it.

“Everybody thinks it is a bunch of Democrats that hate Trump showing up because they hate the guy and they can’t wait to vote against this and that’s what the media has been telling us.

“They are fed up with the way he has been lied about, they are fed up with this Russian conspiracy hoax and this impeachment hoax, they are fed up with the attempts to destroy this country via Antifa and Black Lives Matter and they are tired of watching the cities burn.”

'MEDIA BIAS'

Limbaugh claimed the media had “made up” the narrative that “enthusiasm is on the Democrats' side.”

He added: “They’re tired of watching Democratic governors and mayors shut down their cities and states.

"What's to say this early voting isn’t a bunch of Republicans and Trump supporters showing up to get it out of their system?”

“I think there is a whole different way of looking at this.

"I welcome everybody to join me in my way of looking at this because my way is victory, my way is Trump winning and preserving the American way of life."

More than 100million Americans had cast their votes before polling stations opened this morning.

Some pundits say these record numbers favor Democrat candidate Joe Biden, who is ahead in almost all opinion polls.

But the Trump camp are hoping a late surge in support will propel him to another upset like in 2016.

The President was in bullish mood shortly before polls closed, tweeting: "We are looking really good all over the country. Thank you!"

His team is ready for a legal fight that could drag out results for days or even weeks.

Limbaugh's syndicated radio show is rated as the most listened-to program in the country with a weekly audience of more than 15million.

The conservative commentator has been friends with Trump for years and in February was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Last month he revealed his advanced lung cancer is a "death sentence".
