RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): So let me ask you a couple of questions. If this was a real, real health care threat, why would there be so much false testing and reporting? Because there clearly is now. Three-hundred COVID test sites in Florida report 100% positivity. Who knows the data in other states.

I’m not saying that there’s not a virus out there, I’m not saying it’s not getting people. But we’re not being told factual information about it. Why?

Why would there be so much false testing and reporting? Why all of the false causes on death certificates? Why the staged overrunning of hospitals? Hospitals are not being overrun, like you’re being told. Why the blaming of reopening states, instead of the riots? You know, the riots get no blame whatsoever. Now we got the CDC saying, “Wait a minute, it may've been Northerners moving south on vacation over Memorial Day that led to the spike in the South.”

My only point is, if we really did have the serious threatening virus they are telling us, no one would have to make anything up. Nobody would have to fudge anything. The evidence would be abundantly clear.

That’s just it, there isn’t any clear evidence. That’s why there’re so many people that doubt it, there’s so many different explanations about it.
