    “The Breakfast Club” co-host Charlamagne Tha God said his recent discussion with Rush Limbaugh was a waste of time because it felt like a “performance” by the conservative talk radio legend. “What really bothered me about that conversation was, after I left that conversation I felt like it wasn’t productive. I have no problem talking to people from the other side but I just have to feel like that’s really your truth. I don’t know if I got that from Rush, it felt like more of a performance,” Charlamagne said Wednesday on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” during a...

    Did you hear Rush's first 20 minutes today? Rush gave an update on his health and treatments. He was vague and cryptic and it sounded to me like he's setting us up for his eventual demise. But that's just my take on it. God Bless Rush and Catherine. I hope and pray that he pulls through but a stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis is almost always a death sentence. But I'm holding out hope that he does beat this. After all I had expected Alex Trebek to be gone by now after his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Ive known...

    A man accused of setting a fire that destroyed an Islamic center in southeast Missouri has been charged with a federal hate crime, the U.S. Attorney’s office in St. Louis said Tuesday. A federal grand jury indicted 42-year-old Nicholas J. Proffitt in the April fire that destroyed the Cape Girardeau Islamic Center, the office said in a statement. Proffitt is charged with damaging religious property because of the property’s religious character, using fire to commit a federal felony, and damaging a building used in interstate commerce through use of fire. […] A Muslim advocacy group, which had called for a...

    Is anyone else having problems downloading podcasts from Rush Limbaugh's app for the iPhone? I am a subscriber to Rush's program, but his app does not download the daily podcasts onto my iPhone 6 Plus. software version 12.4.5 I can download Howie Carr, Car Talk, and any other podcast on another 3rd party app called Podcasts. Premier Radio Service is the worst customer service I have ever encountered. They don't respond for days. One guy sent me an email with his phone number but he is never at his desk to take my calls.

    RUSH: Now, there are other things still related to this that we didn’t get into in the first hour. And, you know, Trump’s banning travel from Europe. Democrats not happy about this, folks. They do not like losing their precious travel from their precious European Union even for a day. Some people have asked, “What did you think of president’s speech last night? You didn’t say.” I thought he gave the right speech at the right time. Look, I know some people get frustrated. “My gosh, couldn’t they do something with the sound? You could hear the president breathing.” You...

    RUSH: Thank you again to the Vice President Mike Pence. We have known that the vice president was going to be a guest on the program for a few days, but we had to keep it quiet for security reasons. WeÂ’re more than happy to do that. But heÂ’s just such a genuine person, nice guy. Very serious. I just was looking here. I wish I had a chance to run this by him, but heÂ’s already off to his meeting with Governor DeSantis. But apparently, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was being questioned by a member of Congress, Ted...

    Health officials in the United States warned Tuesday that the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country appears inevitable, marking a significant change in tone as global travel disruptions continued to worsen, South Korea neared 1,000 cases and Iran reported at least 15 deaths. China and South Korea announced new cases of the coronavirus, raising concerns in both nations about how long it could take for normal life to return. South Korea confirmed 144 more cases, bringing its total to 977, the most outside China. President Moon Jae-in visited the city of Daegu, where more than half of the...

    Most cases are not life-threatening, which is also what makes the virus a historic challenge to contain (big snip) The Harvard epidemiology professor Marc Lipsitch is exacting in his diction, even for an epidemiologist. Twice in our conversation he started to say something, then paused and said, “Actually, let me start again.” So it’s striking when one of the points he wanted to get exactly right was this: “I think the likely outcome is that it will ultimately not be containable.” …Lipsitch predicts that, within the coming year, some 40 to 70 percent of people around the world will be...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper highlighted conservative talker Rush Limbaugh’s number of marriages when discussing Limbaugh’s comments about openly gay 2020 presidential candidate former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Tapper said, “Just days after being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has a decade’s long record of bigotry against blacks, woman and the LGBTQ community, attacked Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg because Buttigieg is gay.”

    Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday suggested former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg wouldn't look masculine standing next to "Mr. Man" President Trump on a presidential debate stage because he is an openly gay married man. Democrats are “sitting there, and they’re looking at Mayor Pete, a 37-year-old gay guy ... loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage,” Limbaugh told his radio show listeners while discussing what he perceives as a weak Democratic field. “And they’re saying, 'OK, how’s this gonna look, a 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband onstage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What’s gonna happen...

    Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice-President Joe Biden denounced President Trump for awarding the Medal of Freedom to talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh, calling it “a travesty and stain on American history. I don’t think he understands the American code of decency and honor.” “President Obama awarded me with this medal in 2017,” Biden remembered. “Compared to me, what has Limbaugh done to advance the cause of freedom? For more than 30 years he has been loudly on the wrong side of every social, political, and economic issue. He believes that people ought to work to support themselves, that babies shouldn’t...

    When President Donald Trump bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on ailing right-wing, talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh at the State of the Union, it wasn’t just a feel-good moment for his conservative base. It was also a gesture of thanks to a (fellow) media personality who helped set the stage for Trump’s astonishing political success. Limbaugh’s brash and boorish persona, and his belief that white, male cultural centrality is, to quote the title of Limbaugh's first book, “the way things ought to be," paved the way for the political rise of the bombastic media performer currently sitting in the...

    The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor a president can bestow on a civilian. Obama awarded the most such medals of any president, giving out 123. Many of Obama's recipients arguably deserved the award, including Bill and Melinda Gates, John Glenn, Stephen Hawking, Sandra Day O'Connor, and Sidney Poitier. Obama also gave the award to Republicans like former President George H.W. Bush. Yet a surprisingly large number of Obama's Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients turned out to be campaign donors for both Obama and his hand-picked successor, Hillary Clinton. At least 17 of his donors received the honor, including...

    Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee pushed back Wednesday on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for downplaying President Trump's honoring of conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh at Tuesday's State of the Union address. “First of all, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is an extraordinarily sacred award," Ocasio-Cortez said. "We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks, for example, in terms of their contributions to American progress. Rush Limbaugh is a virulent racist.” “For her to complain about a person with State IV cancer who for longer than she has been alive has actually saved AM radio...
