Arch conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh tried to take his anti-Obama campaign to a new level when he figured out on the air this morning (on KFI 640) that new White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was in fact the brother to Endeavor agent Ari Emanuel.
“The Clintons had the Thomason’s,” Limbaugh bombasted about former President Bill Clinton’s links to Harry and Linda Bloodworth Thomason. “Now the Obamas have access to anyone they want.”
Apart from discussing how “nice, really great guy” Ari was (does he know what he’s saying?) and how Ari invited, nay begged Rush to come out to Hollywood to go to the Oscars, Limbaugh dropped the subject quickly and moved on.
Luckily, Limbaugh wasn’t aware that Ari is the model for Ari Gold on “Entourage,” which no doubt would have led to a Limbaugh diatribe against the show’s producers (Mark Wahlberg, among others) for not inviting him to be a guest star.
How do they say it? That’s Hollywood.
