Rush Limbaugh Awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom

Trump's shamefully jingoistic State of the Union address had too many appalling examples of intellectual and philosophically bankrupt hatred to list but surely the moment that should shock every New Zealander was Trump's astonishing decision to hand Right Wing Hate monger, Rush Limbaugh, the fucking Presidential Medal of Freedom! "Beloved by millions of Americans, who just received a stage four advanced cancer diagnosis". This is not good news. "It can't be forgotten he was awarding the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, who has a history of making derogatory comments about African-Americans".

A bearded Limbaugh stood and saluted President Trump as the award was announced.

"He is the greatest fighter and victor that you will ever meet", Trump said on Tuesday night in reference to the cancer diagnosis in a move that received applause from the mainly GOP members in the Capitol building. "I will now ask the first lady of the United States to present you with the honor".

Though the news had of the award broke hours earlier, Limbaugh seemed surprised at the president's words, his mouth agape, tears welling up in his eyes. "Thank you for your decades of devotion to our country".

Missouri Governor Mike Parson tweeted Tuesday night congratulating Limbaugh on receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Addressing listeners on his program Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, he said he will take some days off for further medical tests and to determine treatment. "I wish I didn't have to tell you this and I thought about not telling anybody", he said on his show.

Limbaugh said that he "first realized something was wrong on my birthday weekend", on January 12, and his diagnosis was later confirmed on January 20.
