No one has done more to divide this nation in the last thirty years..

...than Rush Limbaugh.

He is the icon of right-wing talk radio.

He has propagated hate and division since the days of George H.W. Bush.

He mocked and made fun of everyone, from dumpster divers to women libbers to black leaders and anyone that was vulnerable in our society. He did not hesitate to promote racism.

Then Donald Trump, at last night's SOTU, on the floor of Congress, gave Rush Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom.

I have seen it all...

1. Did he actually receive the award last night?

I did not watch, but was Limbaugh there?

(And I whole heartedly agree on your comments - he is the architect of hate radio.)

2. Yes he did

Melania put it on him during the speech.

I had wondered about this myself but sure as hell, it played out in real time.

4. Oy, I'm glad I didn't watch.



That is too much. Nothing but a prime time MAGA rally on the taxpayer's dime.

12. Indeed it was, and to the entire country

Awarding anything at a SOTU address is inappropriate, let alone to a hate mongering racist homophobic pig like Rush Limbaugh.

I weep for this county today.

3. You are correct.

His words over the last three decades almost singlehandedly created the Republican Party as it is today. We didn’t realize exactly what was happening until it was too late.

There’s an amazing documentary a you can purchase on YouTube called “The Brainwashing of my Dad” that basically goes in depth on the impact Rush Limbaugh has had in America since his radio show started.

Soon to be pushing up daisies, I hope.

10. My prediction:

This is an award that will be corrected by history. After all these old guys are long gone and the nation comes to its senses.
