Rush Limbaugh, while denying he is rushing to defend Donald Trump's "Second Amendment people" remark, called the ensuing firestorm a typical political stroke by the left to pit the biased media against "our candidates" on Thursday.

"This reaction from everybody in the media and a lot of Republicans too, 'cause everybody's so tightly wound and is so afraid of what somebody's gonna say, it tells us more about what the media think of gun owners than what gun owners intend to ever do with their guns," he said on "The Rush Limbaugh Show." "Do not misunderstand me here. I imagine some in the drive-by media are gonna say that 'Limbaugh mounted a spirited defense of Trump.' That's not what I'm doing. That's not my purpose.

"I'm talking about how the left goes about taking out our candidates. I'm telling you how the left goes about defeating us. I'm telling you how the left and the Democratic party working together with the media, which is one and the same, do their dirty work."

Limbaugh was referencing Trump's appearance at a North Carolina rally where the Republican presidential nominee made a call to action for gun owners against the Democratic opposition and Hillary Clinton. 

"Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment," Trump said. "By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."

Limbaugh did admit "at worst it was a bad joke" but "the left has no sense of humor."

"Look I probably am the best interpreter of Donald Trump there is, and I know exactly what he meant with that comment," he said. "It was not the advocacy of violence.

"Everybody is so tightly wound about words, that we are letting all kinds of destructive action take place against this country that has to stop. Words aren't hurting anybody. Words are not causing any damage, not expressly and not directly. But we're so focused on the words."
