One of many moments in last night’s masterful American reality show.
Almost every American family knows the pain when a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness.
[Indeed we do Mr. President. Indeed we do.]
Here tonight is a special man, 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. (Applause.)
And, Rush, in recognition of all that you have done for our nation, the millions of people a day that you speak to and that you 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. (Applause.)
I will now ask the First Lady of the United States to present you with the honor. Please. (Applause.)
(The Medal of Freedom is presented.)
Here the Medal of Freedom will never be imposed:
Speaker Pelosi just ripped up:
One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen.
The survival of a child born at 21 weeks.
The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller.
A service member’s reunion with his family.
That’s her legacy.
