Rush Limbaugh's most infamous act was calling a young grad student a slut for testifying in favor of contraceptive coverage. A terrible diagnosis does not erase a lifetime of racism, homophobia and misogyny. A sick man deserves healthcare; a bigot does not a medal of honor. #SOTU
Oh FFS Rush Limbaugh getting the Medal of Honor is a low I sure wasn’t expecting.
A convenient list of racist comments by Rush Limbaugh for reporters on deadline writing about Trump awarding him the Presidential Medal of Honor. https://t.co/Fhcu7bUGRA
For spreading racism, misogyny, xenophobia, conspiracy theories & pure evil Trump awards Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Honor.
This is so disrespectful to the former worthy recipients of this award. Unbelievable!!! #StateOfTheUnion #SOTU
Sergeant Henry Johnson, Medal of Honor for May 4, 1918, Argonne, France. While on watch, attacked by 24 German raiders. Fought them off with grenades & hand-to-hand combat using rifle butt, knife, & fists, killing many & receiving 21 wounds. Rescued fellow soldier from capture. https://t.co/TOE0GTAhyy
Trump honors Rush Limbaugh with a Presidential Medal of Honor.
Sporadic shouts of "No" on the Dem side as he does it.
Nancy is everyone who isn't buying this "State of the Union REALITY SHOW".. What an absolute joke this administration is!
Nancy should get a Medal of Honor for waiting till the very end before ripping it up. Such restraint!
Go Nancy !
Giving Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal Of Honor is like giving Jeffrey Dahmer the Humanitarian Award and a set of steak knives
Trump invites Rush Limbaugh to State of the Union following cancer diagnosis https://t.co/xittYCn5E6
*** RT if you think our POTUS is the most caring President *** He is going to give a medal of honor to Rush, so bittersweet ***
They just gave the Medal of Honor to a man who laughed & joked about Eric Garner not being able to breathe, ridiculed & mocked Michael J. Fox, for having Parkinson’s and laughed about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s cancer. A great example of the character and Integrity in the Whitehouse
Hey is @FLOTUS
really giving a congressional medal of honor to Rush Limbaugh for his dedicated service AFTER a Tuskegee Airman...no...calling an ambulance, we are clearly both having some sort of shared delusion...WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS GOING ON? We need that Inception kick NOW!
My favorite Medal of Honor citation of all time: Col. Don Ballard.
Like so many Medal of Honor recipients in Vietnam, he won it for smothering a grenade with his body, trading his life for those of his comrades. Only in his case...
He gave a Medal of Honor to a man who would call me a prostitute for wanting birth control. I have no space for his defenders tonight.
The Klan received a congressional medal of honor tonight
Not a Tuskegee Airman who was also at the #SOTU
Not John Lewis who is battling pancreatic cancer
Not Ms. Flint who is still asking people for clean water
No it was the Klan known as Rush Limbaugh
Trump honors Rush Limbaugh with the Medal of Honor! Which means the Medal of Honor has been reduced to a ribbon sold at Piggly Wiggly 🤷🏽♀️ https://t.co/5OIu0XOR1W
In the year of our Lord of 2020 in Black History month, the two racist birthers known as trump and melania awarded a bigoted radio show host, Rush Limbaugh, a congressional medal of honor

The rest of the world seeing the American President present a Medal of Honor to a racist asshole talk radio host: https://t.co/G4GT2k78KY
Medal of Honor?
“ I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years bc it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back;it had its merits.....the streets were safer after dark.” - Rush Limbaugh

’s brave gesture...tonight King Donald awarded a Medal of Honor to a man who responded gleefully, on air, when RBG was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2018, that they would soon be filling another SCOTUS seat 🤬
Fantastic! Medal of honor from the Bone Spur to the Butt Cyst! What fucked up parallel world is this? https://t.co/m8HUUkxTZp
Medal of Honor on National History:
To Rush Limbaugh...
Seen, things before... However, not certain anyone has anything so disgusting in American history.
America is falling.
I have been tweeting one forgotten African American Medal of Honor winner per day this month, but Doris certainly rates the MoH & I'll be be sharing his story on the 29th.
If you’re upset that Trump gave Rush Limbaugh a Medal of Honor for getting lung cancer just wait until Alex Jones gets syphilis.
Rush Limbaugh got a Medal of Freedom?😡WTH! THE AUDACITY to honor a man that said the man that killed MLK needed a medal of honor & that the streets were safe after dark during slavery in the same room w/ “honorably mentioned” Tuskegee airmen Charles McGee #HappyBlackHistoryMonth https://t.co/gtwqdD0eMc
This week in America: Our national anthem was shit on by an impeached, (but excused), POTUS and the medal of honor has been reduced to a meaningless chunk of crap by being awarded to our #1 racist simply because he's dying.
Good times in this dimension...how's your week going?
