Rush Limbaugh’s wife Kathryn announced the news of his death on his radio show on Wednesday. He was 70 years old and died in his Palm Beach house.
Kathryn shared the news with profound sadness. She also said that losing a loved person is always terribly difficult, but she knows that Rush will forever be the greatest of all times. She said he was warm and welcoming. He did not have any arrogance despite being one of the most recognized faces. He was always polite and respectful and never let his success change who he was.
His battle with Cancer
Last February, he broke the news of his cancer diagnosis to his listeners. He said he felt like letting everyone down when he was diagnosed but he could not help it. He was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.
His relationship with Donald Trump
Just one day after former President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian award, MR. Trump thanked Limbaugh for his decades of tireless devotion to the nation. The radio host found common grounds with Donald Trump because both of them have a large media presence and diverse comments. He had known Trump even before his Presidency days. Before the 2016 election, Limbaugh treated the former President as a serious contender and used his media presence to amplify his platform to his millions of listeners. He has publicly praised Trump for his bombastic and savvy media strategy and his presence online.
We are sure that the world mourns the loss of a legendary radio celebrity. He was known for his candid comments and his relentless support for Trump despite everything. He was a right-wing radio megastar whose slashing, denigrating Democrats, environmentalists, feminazis, and other liberals marked the rise of Donald J. Trump.
