Basically, Rush Limbaugh singlehandedly created conservative talk radio. He was a giant in the world of conservative politics for more than three decades, speaking to an audience of millions on a weekly basis.
While he was known for his conservative politics, he was also an entertainer and just like most entertainers, he’d cross the line on occasion.
Limbaugh was an extremely polarizing figure. He was Fox News before Fox News. People either tend to really love him or really hate him and celebrities seemed to really hate him, especially Bette Midler.
Limbaugh died last week and of course, people came out with some unbelievably disgusting and vile responses to his death. Midler chimed in was a particularly awful comment following Rush’s death.
