This one is from Keith:
As most of you probably know, Rush Limbaugh died today of lung cancer at the age of 70.
Donald Trump called into Fox News to express his thoughts. Trump spoke to Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer.
“There aren’t too many legends around, but he is a legend,” Trump said.
“He had tremendous insight. He got it, he really got it,” the former president said. “Rush was irreplaceable.”
Trump also released a statement:
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.
I spent many, many hours listening to and learning from Rush. There was simply no one like him on radio. None of the others were ever quite a good. And none as powerful. Rush could set the whole conversation for the rest of the day.
One thing Trump noted was that Rush prepared assiduously for his shows. The great make it look easy, but they work very hard. Trump is another one who works so much harder than others in his field, whether it’s business or politics, though may people don’t know it.
I was so sad when I heard the news today. Rush was a great man. There was a braggadocio but also a supreme humility to him, a respect for his listeners. And always, wisdom and fearlessness in the face of conventional wisdom and political correctness. And a sense of humor.
I will miss listening to him very much. And the country will miss him too, whether they know it or not.
Thank you, Rush.
