Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh died early Wednesday morning after a year long battle with lung cancer; this was announced by his wife Kathryn Limbaugh at the beginning of his Wednesday program.
“It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer, Rush will forever be the greatest of all time.”
- Kathryn Limbaugh
Limbaugh hosted The Rush Limbaugh Show for 32 years and had fought against Stage 4 lung cancer since January of 2020. Limbaugh was a voice for conservative Americans, and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump. He stood for the many traditional values that helped to build the country.
Limbaugh lived past his prognosis and was expected to die months before he did. Conservatives across Washington poured out support for the Limbaugh family in the wake of his passing. The Rush Limbaugh Show will be a staple in political entertainment forever, and Rush’s legacy will be continued by value-based Americans.
