Despite the leftist dog-pile that occurred following conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh’s allegedly controversial comments regarding former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg’s homosexuality, he’s not backing down and certainly not apologizing.

Limbaugh stands accused of a “decades-long record of bigotry” from CNN’s Jake Tapper, who hurled a litany of personal insults at the titan of talk radio after he suggested that “America’s still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage.” Regardless of whether the statement is true, even in part, the left engaged in a hateful campaign against Limbaugh.

But on Monday’s airing of his show, Rush let listeners know that President Trump had personally called him to discuss the comments, which had prompted Buttigieg to say he is “not going to take lectures on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh.”

“Hell, the president even called me about this!” he exclaimed. “He said, ‘Rush, I just got to tell you something. Never apologize. Don’t ever apologize.'”

He also noted that he had no idea that the whole situation had blown up, as he has been more occupied with the treatment for his advanced-stage lung cancer.

“I had no idea this thing had even bubbled up,” he said. “You know, I’m up doing the medical thing that I have to do here, and I wasn’t even aware of this.”

But Limbaugh isn’t sweating the hate. Instead, he’s positing his own theories as to why so many people would be upset by a seemingly benign diagnosis of America’s position on the possibility of a homosexual president.

“I think they think that there’s a lot of people that don’t know he’s gay and that I sort of dropped the dime on it and let people who otherwise didn’t know that Mayor Pete is gay,” he suggested. “I think that’s what they’re really mad about, that I even mentioned it.”

While many might find this a completely bizarre idea, there is at least one recorded instance of a voter asking for her ballot back because she didn’t realize that she was voting for a gay man. In fact, the video is so absurd that it is enough to make one wonder whether it’s real or a setup.
