Conservatives Ponder Sterling Trutherism: Did Magic Set Him Up?
A few conservative pundits on Tuesday furthered a conspiracy theory that someone, possibly Magic Johnson, set up Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist rant in order to buy the team.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on his show on Tuesday had a lengthy discussion with a caller about such a theory. Limbaugh attributed the theory to the caller, but seemed convinced that it was a possibility.
“Whoever set this up is really good. They covered every base. They’ve got the media wrapped around their little finger,” Limbaugh said.
“This is a fascinating theory. And, Neil, I’m glad that you held on through the break so I could dig deep, explore further,” he continued “You know, you got it.”
