Breaking with State of the Union tradition, President Trump on Tuesday paused his annual address to Congress to recognize conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh in the gallery and allow first lady Melania Trump to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

What did Ellen DeGeneres ever do to deserve the medal besides coming out of the closet, gifting her audience members or worrying about elephants?

I don't know but it's a sure bet she didn't spread hatred for her fellow man like Lint Ball.

Limbaugh has done more to help people in his spare time that you have ever done in your life. Perhaps instead of embracing your deranged hatred of all things you disagree with, you should educate yourself about people with whom you disagree.

It won't happen. The loony left has been spreading lies about Limbaugh for decades. They falsely accuse him of being a bigot, sexist and other nonsense.

Well since Rush is on the radio, you should have some audio of him saying racist, sexist things.

Here are some of the racist, sexist, and otherwise awful things Limbaugh has said over the years:
•He argued that white people shouldn't be blamed for slavery. "It's preposterous that Caucasians are blamed for slavery when they've done more to end it than any other race," he said in 2013, adding that "if any race of people should not have guilt about slavery, it's Caucasians."
•He called the Georgetown Law student Susan Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" in 2012 when she argued before Congress for contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act. The comments earned a direct rebuke from President Barack Obama, who said that "all decent folks can agree" that the remarks "don't have any place in the public discourse."
•He was forced to resign from ESPN in 2003 after he said the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb got undeserved praise because "the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well."
•He mocked the actor Michael J. Fox, who has Parkinson's disease, in 2006. Commenting on a video Fox appeared in, Limbaugh said, "Either he didn't take his medication, or he's acting."
•The Obamas were a favorite target. In 2008, Limbaugh infamously compared Barack Obama to a cartoon monkey, and he regularly commented on Michelle Obama's body, referring to her as "Moochelle Obama" and "Michelle, my butt."
•In 1988 he called Amy Carter "the most unattractive presidential daughter in the history of the country," and in the early 1990s he called Chelsea Clinton the "White House dog."
•He's repeatedly joked that Hillary Clinton castrates men and has a "testicle lockbox" and said in 2009 that she didn't become a US Marine because "they didn't have uniforms or boots big enough to fit that butt and those ankles."


Which one would you like to debate? #1. why should only white people be blamed for slavery? That is not a racist thing to say. Black people in Africa rounded them up and put them up for sale. And who abolished slavery? white people.

# 2. That's not sexist, it's true. Susan Fluke, said she had so much sex that she need tax payers to pay for her birth control.

# 3. It's not racist to say that the media is desirous of a black quarterback doing well. They are! and so am I. I like seeing black people do well.

Now calling Chelsea the whitehouse dog, is something I never heard him say, But it's not nearly as bad as the things the media has said about Trump and his family.
