On his radio show on Thursday, Rush Limbaugh slammed the Washington, D.C. establishment for asking President Trump to tone down his rhetoric on North Korea.
Responding on Tuesday to the latest threats from North Korea, Trump warned that any attack on the U.S. "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle warned that Trump's tough talk could exacerbate the situation and trigger a war with North Korea.
"What does this mean?" Limbaugh said. "It means that 'wimpism' has taken over the Washington establishment, that 'wussism' and 'wimpism' and 'pajama boyism' has taken over."

He argued there's no reason to be afraid of North Korea, describing the Kim Jong Un's reclusive kingdom as a "zit on the butt of a pig."
"Would we run around acting afraid of a zit on a pig?" Limbaugh asked.
He said North Korea may have nuclear weapons, but they "can’t hit the side of a barn" with them.
"What are we supposed to do, just sit here and wait until the real one is airborne and hope that being gentle and compassionate and unprovocative will stop this lunatic from doing what he’s doing? Is that what we’re to believe here?" Limbaugh asked.
He said that type of "pajama boy liberalism" is what enabled North Korea and Iran to advance their nuclear programs in the first place.
He pointed out that some leaders - like Hillary Clinton - have said we should respect our enemies and try and get inside their heads, which she dubbed "smart power."
"No, it’s not," Limbaugh said. "It’s called how to lose."
