Default Rush Limbaugh awarded Medal of Freedom at State of the Union

Good for Limbaugh. If it wasn't for people like him we would have only have left wing media to listen to and because of that the left hates him and makes up all sorts of lies about him.I am sure rabid foam at the mouth liberals are outraged.

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.

Disgusting. He’s a force for evil in this country. I wish him well in his cancer battle, but it is shameful that he is getting this honor.

Yeah, how dare someone that highlights the good in this country and points out the truth that the MSM refuses to do. Evil is the Democrats remaining silent and not even recognizing that Rush is a human going through a very difficult illness and showing compassion out of partisan hatred. Disgusting.

The guy built a career out of hating, ridiculing and lying about people who disagree with his politics. He’s precisely the opposite of the type of person the Medal of Freedom is intended to honor. Something tells me that if Obama had given a medal to someone who famously called one of the Bush twins a dog, you wouldn’t be so charitable.

Rush gets the respect he gives....

Which is virtually zero....

He was a hired hit man for the right for decades, his reputation has been earned and it brands him....

When you say split the country you mean inform people the nonsense that the left is doing and espouse conservative beliefs?

I love how opinions that don’t match those of the right-wing minority are always dismissed as the meaningless opinions of “the Left.” The fact is that a significant majority of this country cannot stand Limbaugh. It’s not just “the Left.”
