Rush Limbaugh announced on Monday that President Obama won’t be impeached over recent controversies and that “Benghazi is not going to touch” him. And no, it’s not because the talking points “scandal” wasn’t really, you know, scandalous, or that the Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus told impeachment-happy members of Congress to cool it until they have evidence to support their claims or any other reasons that are based in reality.

It’s because Obama is black, and “the American people are not going to tolerate the first black president being removed from office,” according to Limbaugh.
