Talk Radio Giant Rush Limbaugh Dead at 70: Trump Praises, Liberals Attack

At the start of his Wednesday show, talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh’s wife announced that he had died of cancer earlier that day. Many praised him, but the left went wild attacking him on the day he passed from this mortal coil.

Both former President Donald Trump and former Vice-President Mike Pence bestowed high praise on Rush in the hours after his death was announced.

The president put out a statement saying that Rush could never be replaced:

The great Rush Limbaugh has passed away to a better place, free from physical pain and hostility. His honor, courage, strength, and loyalty will never be replaced. Rush was a patriot, a defender of Liberty, and someone who believed in all of the greatness our Country stands for. Rush was a friend to myself and millions of Americans—a guiding light with the ability to see the truth and paint vivid pictures over the airwaves. Melania and I express our deepest condolences to his wonderful wife, Kathryn, his family, and all of his dedicated fans. He will be missed greatly.

The president also spoke to Fox News during the day.

“Three or four days ago, I called him,” Trump told Fox. “His fight was very, very courageous and he was very, very sick and, you know, from diagnosis on. It was just something that was not going to be beat, but you wouldn’t know it.”

Trump also said that Limbaugh “told me he was married to an angel.”

“Every time I spoke to him, he would tell me how great she was. She took such great care. He was very brave — I mean he in theory could have been done four months ago, really. He just, he was fighting ’til the very end. He was a fighter,” Trump said of Limbaugh’s wife.

For his part, Pence posted a series of Tweets praising Rush.

Naturally, the hate-filled, disgusting left went wild spitting out their venom and announcing their glee that Limbaugh had died.

Liberals really are terrible, evil people.
