Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh Tuesday cheered Donald Trump's attacks on the media at a news conference about the $5.6 million he said he raised for veterans' groups, asking "how many years have people been begging for a Republican to just once take on the media the way Trump did?"

"He took 'em all on," Limbaugh said, according to a transcript of his afternoon talk show. "How it is that Trump is succeeding in getting a bunch of people that literally hate him to help him out?  It's fascinating."

At the news conference at Trump Tower in New York, the presumptive Republican nominee accused the media of failing to give him credit for raising the funds at an event in January in Iowa.

Limbaugh excoriated the media, saying that it "totally wants Hillary Clinton to win, but they're so conflicted.

"The cable networks, since this thing ended, have been devoted to the press conference and how Trump was mean to them and how Trump insulted them and how Trump criticized them.

"If Trump were any other Republican, they would have practically destroyed him by now and they'd be worried about rehabbing Hillary's image and building her up," Limbaugh later said. "But she's so unexciting, she's so dull, she's so scandal-ridden, they've got nothing to work with.

"All they can do is try to destroy Trump, but they don't know how," he added. "Because they didn't make Trump, they can't destroy Trump."

The core problem is that the press, including the conservative media, is "making the big mistake of trying to plug Trump into the age-old political handbook. Trump's not part of that.

"You don't deal with Trump in the standard, political-handbook way on policy and issues and things like that," Limbaugh said. "That's not the way to separate Trump supporters from Trump.

"It isn't gonna work."
