Rush Limbaugh offered Donald Trump some timely advice once.

On Friday, in response to a caller who asked him is he ever advised Trump, the conservative radio host admitted there was one occasion where he did.

“I have never advised him. Not personally. I take it back. When the (John) McCain thing happened in the campaign last fall, I did get a call from Mr. Trump, just to say hi,” Limbaugh recalled, according to a transcript of his show. “It was about a week after he had said that he doesn’t like military people that get captured. He’d prefer to support military people that don’t get captured, and he was talking about McCain. And he asked me if I thought he should apologize. I said, ‘Not now, it’s a week, no, no, no, don’t.’ That’s it. That’s the only time, Quinn. I’m not an advisor. I’m not a confidant. There are all kinds of other people who are, but I’m not.”

The caller said that “It just feels like” Limbaugh’s “touch” is on the presumptive Republican nominee.

“In my own mind I’ve got a lot in common with him on that,” the host said. “We’ve never talked about it. We’ve never once talked about any of this performance stuff. But in my own career — you know, I told him yesterday, on the air, and last week, too, I said that now that he’s won, for all intents and purposes, the nomination, he’s gonna be under a lot of pressure from people within his own circle to change.”
