“How about some of the rappers that talk about their bitches and their hoes [and] have performed such lyrics in the White House?” Limbaugh asked. “But she doesn’t know men who talk about and sing about sexual assault? It’s been all over hip-hop lyrics and has been for a while.”

Limbaugh said the Obamas had also welcomed rappers who condone violence against police.

“So is assault on the police a feature of some hip-hop lyrics, and it’s been performed at the White House,” he said. "But she doesn’t know men who talk that way. She doesn’t know decent guys who talk that way."

“No. She’s only invited them to the White House to perform and then bestowed great honors on them,” the radio host added.

Limbaugh's comments came after the first lady on Thursday ripped Trump for a tape in which he was caught discussing groping and kissing women without their consent.

“[This] has shaken me to my core in a way I couldn’t have predicted,” she said of Trump’s lewd remarks. “This is not normal, this is not politics as usual."

"I can’t believe I’m saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women."

Her speech also comes as Trump faces a growing number of accusations from women that he made unwanted sexual advances.

Limbaugh said critics were taking past remarks about women out of context.

“If you go back to this audio tape, he said, ‘When you’re a celebrity, they let you do anything,’” Limbaugh said.

“How can there be assault if somebody’s granting permission? How can it be assault if they let you do anything? But that’s a fine point."
