Rush Limbaugh charged Tuesday "career Republicans in Washington" are engaged in a "silent coup" – unwilling "to touch Obamacare" or implement any of President Donald Trump's agenda.

On his daily radio show, the conservative host decried "the elite club known as the establishment."

"It is abundantly clear that the career Republicans in Washington don't want to touch Obamacare," he said. "They don't want to repeal it. And they don't want to do tax reform. And they don't want to build a wall. They don't want to do any of the Trump agenda."

"We're in the midst of a silent coup," he declared. "These people are trying to take this president out, and everybody understands that. So, why, in that circumstance, do you think that the same people trying to destroy Donald Trump are gonna help him get rid of Obamacare, are gonna help him reform the tax code?"

Limbaugh complained from the moment Trump was elected, "you could see that the establishment began to circle the wagons, and there was no way this guy was gonna be allowed to triumph on anything."

"It has never been about Trump unifying the Republican Party in order to beat the Democrats, and that's been the mistake," he said, adding: "The fight is Donald Trump and his cadre and you, the Trump base, versus the Washington establishment. It has always been that and nothing more."
