Radio icon Rush Limbaugh got teary-eyed when First Lady Melania Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of President Trump at the State of the Union address. The medal is the nation’s highest civilian honor.

Limbaugh, 69, is suffering from advanced lung cancer. While awarding him the medal, President Trump said:

“Almost every American family knows the pain when a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness. Here tonight is a special man, someone beloved by millions of Americans, who just received a Stage 4 advanced cancer diagnosis. This is not good news, but what is good news is that he is the greatest fighter and winner that you will ever meet.

Rush Limbaugh, thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country.

Rush, in recognition of all that you have done for our nation, the millions of people a day that you speak to and inspire, and all of the incredible work that you have done for charity, I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving our country’s highest civilian honor — the Presidential Medal of Freedom.”

Limbaugh — who arrived at the Capitol in a wheelchair — wiped tears from his eyes while Melania placed the medal around his neck.

Despite his grave illness, Rush stood to his feet numerous times during Trump’s SOTU speech to clap.

Limbaugh received a raucous standing ovation at the ceremony. One person shouted “Thank you, Rush!” from the House floor.

During the extended standing ovation, Limbaugh looked over to President Trump, who nodded from the lectern and gave him an enthusiastic thumbs-up.

Limbaugh’s longtime producer, Bo Snerdley, proudly posted a Twitter photo of Rush receiving the Presidential Medal. The picture needed no caption, because the powerful photo said it all.

Snerdley also reacted to the left-wing media’s smears of his longtime friend and colleague by tweeting: “I just saw the footage from CNN’s Jim Acosta saying Rush has a “history” of saying disparaging things about African-Americans. I have been in the studio with Rush for 30 years. I would like to formally challenge CNN and Acosta to provide the list.”

Predictably, leftists like Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Limbaugh, saying: “Rush Limbaugh is a virulent racist.”

AOC also said it was “nauseating” to watch the conservative titan be honored.

In September 2019, Limbaugh warned that the Left’s rabid hatred of President Trump will ultimately be their undoing when he wins reelection in a landslide. Why? Because hate blinds you and makes you do dumb, self-destructive things (like the sham impeachment).

Limbaugh said leftists are so triggered because they’ve never encountered someone like President Trump, who refuses to back down in the face of their mob bullying and calls them out on their BS.

“Hatred’s a poison, folks. It is a poison,” Rush said. “They’re not thinking about blowback. Their psychology is so destroyed, so messed up.”

Dismissing and mocking Trump is how the Left ended up losing to him in 2016 — and they’re repeating the same mistake this year. “Trump put a giant minefield in their effort to socialize the United States,” Limbaugh said.

At the State of the Union address, Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a big show of ripping up Trump’s speech after the address ended.

However, President Trump got last laugh when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tore up the sham articles of impeachment after the Senate acquitted Trump.
