Limbaugh spearheaded the rumor on his popular radio show saying that there was little to no chance Reid’s injuries resulted from a wayward elastic workout band. The conservative host even thinks he knows who done it..
Limbaugh said, “I don’t believe for a minute that whatever happened to Harry Reid has anything to do with an exercise machine unless somebody repeatedly threw him into it.” I don’t know by who, although I might now. Bottom line is, I might now know who did it.
Reid’s injuries included multiple broken bones around his right eye, damage to the right eye, severe facial bruising, broken ribs, and a concussion, which has left many asking, could all that really be the result of losing his balance while working out with an elastic exercise band?
Reid responded to Limbaugh’s conspiracy theory this way,
“It shows the credibility of Rush Limbaugh, he’s the guy that got all this started,” Reid replied. “Why in the world would I come up with a story that I got hurt in my own bathroom with my wife standing there? How could anyone say anything like that? And I think a lot of people, as I read, they kind of don’t like me as a person and I think that’s unfortunate.”
