Remember, Trump presented Rush with the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his achievements in radio — but Florida Governor Ron DeSantis got some pushback when he ordered flags lowered to honor Limbaugh after his death last month of lung cancer.
We know what you’re thinking — Rush probably had a big fan in the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office who put that title on the death certificate.
However, his wife, Kathryn Limbaugh, is listed as the person providing the info for the document, so it’s most likely her handiwork.
“The Rush Limbaugh Show” was nationally syndicated, starting in 1988, and made him one of the premier voices in the conservative ranks, as well as one of the most listened to radio personalities.
However, his success in radio came with a lot of controversies … his views on race, feminism, sexual consent, climate change and LGBTQ+ issues — just to name a few — were widely criticized and made him one of America’s most polarizing figures.
