Radio host Michael Savage is in hot water after making despicable comments about Rush Limbaugh. Savage stooped to new lows when he made fun of Limbaugh sharing a somber update regarding his battle with lung cancer. While most decent human beings have offered words of support and encouragement to Limbaugh regardless if they agree with his views Savage decided to fire off some nasty tweets.
In a since-deleted tweet, Michael Savage wrote, “Limbaugh’s crying about his cancer on air! Worst 15 minutes in radio history!” Savage wrote on Twitter. “Spilled a large coffee all over counter and floor. I PROMISE MY AUDIENCE THIS- I WILL NOT DRAG YOU DOWN WITH ME! Best wishes RUSH, but stop and leave the stage with dignity. Compare this to Lou Gehrig in Yankee Stadium,” he continued.
In a report for Fox News:
Limbaugh announced in February that he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.
On Monday, he provided his listeners with a somber update on his condition after recent scans showed “some progression of cancer,” which he said was “not dramatic” but still a step in the wrong direction.
“From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, OK, that’s it, life’s over, you just don’t know when,” Limbaugh said. “So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure a happy life against whatever medication it takes.”
“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” he continued.
“The Rush Limbaugh Show” has been on the air since 1988 and has amassed millions of followers. It’s tough to say if Savage is insane or just heartless for the disgusting comments he made against Limbaugh.
