Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Has Passed Away at 70

Rush Limbaugh has died.

The conservative radio personality, who was on air for more than 30 years, passed away due to lung cancer, TMZ reported Wednesday (February 17).

He previously announced that he was battling lung cancer last year. He had been missing shows recently, as producers called for prayers.

His The Rush Limbaugh Show has been in national syndication since 1988, he wrote seven books, and he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by former President Donald Trump for achievements in radio during the 2020 State of the Union address. He was also inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame, and his show was named most listened-to in the United States in 2019.

His controversial, often incendiary views on feminism, race, the LGBTQ community, climate change and, most recently, the pandemic were highly criticized and widely polarizing, making him an extremely divisive figure in American pop culture.

Rush Limbaugh was also married four times, and divorced three times. He is survived by his current wife, Kathryn Rogers. The two wed in 2010.

All of these stars passed away in 2021.

Rush Limbaugh Says He Doesn't Believe In The Notion of 'White Privilege'

Rush Limbaugh full heartedly believes that there is nothing true about what white privilege is.

During his interview with Charlamagne tha God on The Breakfast Club, 69-year-old political commentator says that he doesn’t buy into the construct of it.

“I think that’s a liberal, political construct right along the lines of political correctness, it’s designed to intimidate and get people to shut up and admit they’re guilty of doing things they haven’t done,” he shared. “I don’t have any white privilege.”

Charlamagne shot back, “You’re being delusional.”

“I’m not denying that there are certain individuals out there that think they are better than other people. But structurally, institutionally, white supremacy — that’s a construct,” Rush added.

While the two sparred on if white privilege did exist between them, the two did agree that they were both outraged over the death of George Floyd.

“What happened to George Floyd sickened me,” Rush said. “I wanted to reach out and tell you all this. I wanted to make sure you have no doubt, and I’m not the only American who feels that way, the senselessness of it.”

These other celebrities have acknowledged that they do believe white privilege is a real thing and are vowing to do something about it.

Pete Buttigieg Tells Ellen His Thoughts on Rush Limbaugh's Controversial Comments

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is speaking out with his reaction to conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh‘s controversial comments about him.

Pete sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an interview, which is going to air on her Friday (February 21) show. You can watch a preview here!

“How is this going to look? Thirty-seven-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man, Donald Trump,” Rush said while criticizing the idea of a gay man becoming the president.

After letting out a laugh, Pete said, “Look, I guess he just has a different idea of what makes a man than I do. I’m not going to take a lecture on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh or anybody who supports Donald Trump. You know, when I was packing my bags for Afghanistan, Donald Trump was working on season seven of The Celebrity Apprentice.”

“And, since when is strength about the chest pounding of the loud mouth guy at the end of the bar. The strongest people I know are not the loudest people, they’re the ones who have the deepest sense of who they are, and what they value, and what they care about, and one of those people, one of the strongest people I know, is my husband… Brad Pitt,” he jokingly said while pointing to his husband Chasten in the audience.

Political Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Announces 'Advanced Lung Cancer' Diagnosis

Rush Limbaugh has announced he has been diagnosed with “advanced lung cancer.”

The 69-year-old conservative radio talk show host announced his diagnosis during The Rush Limbaugh Show on Monday (February 3).

“This day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory, for me, because I’ve known this moment was coming,” Rush said. “I’m sure that you all know by now that I really don’t like talking about myself and I don’t like making things about me… one thing that I know, that has happened over the 31-plus years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that had developed between all of you and me.”

Rush continued: “So, I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn’t have to tell you. It’s a struggle for me because I had to inform my staff earlier today. I can’t help but feel that I’m letting everybody down. The upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.”

Rush went on to say that the cancer will keep him off the air on certain days as he receives treatment.

“I hope I will be talking about this as little as necessary in the coming days, but we’ve got a great bunch of doctors, a great team assembled, we’re at full speed ahead on this,” Rush said. “It’s just now a matter of implementing what we are going to be told later this week.”

Rush said he “hopes” to be able to return to work on Thursday, before saying, “If not, it’ll be as soon as I can. Every day I’m not here I’ll be thinking of you and missing you.”

Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Brings Controversy By Saying Idris Elba Shouldn't Play James Bond Because He's a 'Black Briton'

Journalist Rush Limbaugh just made some pretty controversial comments about how he believes Idris Elba should not be in contention for the next James Bond he’s “a black Briton.”

“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was,” Rush said on his radio show. “But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”

Idris has mentioned in the past that he has been on the short list for the role and would take it if it was offered.

“I just don’t want to be called the first black James Bond. Do you understand what I’m saying? Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond. So if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond,” Idris said in the past.
