Rush Limbaugh said that Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin — and by extension, Hillary Clinton — has ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood on his radio show today.
“Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, Mrs. Huma Weiner, she is Hillary Clinton’s number one aide,” Limbaugh said. “And Huma’s mother is best friends with the new First Lady of Egypt, the wife of the new Muslim Brotherhood guy, Morsi. That’s really all you need to know. But there’s much more to know.”
That’s why Hillary is out celebrating the brotherhood. That’s why Hillary is joining Obama in telling the military to give it up for the Brotherhood guy. Because Huma’s mom, there’s actually a group, the Muslim Sisterhood, essentially, that is an offshoot of the Brotherhood. And Huma’s mom is best friends with the new so-called First Lady of Egypt, who is also a member of the Sisterhood. Folks, it’s Peyton place. It’s too much to keep up with.
Limbaugh was discussing articles that have appeared in the conservative blogosphere saying that Abedin’s mother, a professor named Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is a member of the female version of the Muslim Brotherhood, which recently took power in Egypt.
