Rush Awarded Medal of Freedom

Friday, 07 Feb, 2020

Shortly after President Trump began his State of the Union remarks Tuesday night, the White House announced conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh would be in attendance.

He announced Monday he is battling advanced lung cancer.

In truth, Limbaugh's invectives towards black National Football League gamers greased the skids no longer just for Trump's broadsides towards black athletes however for the ascent of Trump himself.

While the move drew applause from Republicans, it drew the ire of some Democrats and advocates for marginalized groups and issues. "Rush to his Oxy dealer tomorrow", actor Patton Oswalt said.

Limbaugh expressed shock and wiped away tears when he was told of his receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor.

President Donald Trump arrives for his State of the Union address at the Capitol in Washington on February 4, 2020. Trump said he signed a bill a few weeks ago promoting McGee to brigadier general and pinned the star on McGee earlier Tuesday.

Limbaugh is widely considered one of the most high-profile conservative media personalities in the country.

"To give it to Rush Limbaugh when there were enough people in that audience who have made a positive contribution to the structure of American society, much more honestly than he is", she continued.

The timing couldn't have been better. Kroft: People have called you a sexist.Limbaugh: Right.Kroft: People have called you a homophobe.Limbaugh: Right.Kroft: Are you?Limbaugh: Of course not.

Limbaugh's first national radio show launched from NY in 1988 and he's had national prominence since.

"If any race of people should not have guilt about slavery, it's Caucasians".

"I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn't have to tell you", Limbaugh, 69, said to listeners Monday, according to the Associated Press. He was surprised on Feb 4, 2020, when he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
