Limbaugh Tells Fox: Obama Pulled Census Question

Mediaite reports:

Rush Limbaugh he falsely claimed that Barack Obama took citizenship questions of the census when he was president during a Friday morning appearance on Fox & Friends.

In a segment that drew no push-back or fact-checking from the curvy couch, Limbaugh claimed that “somebody in the Obama regime decided to get rid of it,” and Democrats support that because “everything the Left does is political, and they couch it in compassion and concern and not wanting to target or single out anybody.”

Limbaugh seems to be peddling a false talking point which has become popular on the right: that citizenship questions have been part of every census from 1950 until Obama took them off.
