The incredibly influential conservative icon, Rush Limbaugh, has passed away at the age of 70.

Rush Limbaugh had been fighting stage four lung cancer for several months.

He first made the announcement that he had lung cancer in January of 2020.

Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump in the State of the Union address after his announcement.

“Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” President Trump said during the State of the Union Address.

The First lady then proceeded to present Limbaugh with the highest honor a civilian can be gifted.

Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn Limbaugh, made the announcement of his death on Wednesday during his radio show.

Limbaugh is one of the most famous political influencers and has been doing his radio show for quite some time.

Fox News called him the “most polarizing person in American media.”

Limbaugh’s show began 33 years ago on only 56 radio stations.

The show grew to more than 600 stations.



Rush Limbaugh garnered 27 million people to tune into his show weekly.

Limbaugh called his loyal fanbase “Dittoheads.”

During Limbaugh’s final show, he made several emotional statements.

“I wasn’t expected to be alive today … I wasn’t expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I’m feeling pretty good today.”

Limbaugh’s fans were even sometimes notable.

Ronald Reagan wrote a letter to Limbaugh that said, “Thanks for all you’re doing to promote Republican and conservative principles. Now that I’ve retired from active politics, I don’t mind that you have become the Number One voice for conservatism in our country.”

“I know the liberals call you ‘the most dangerous man in America,’ but don’t worry about it; they used to say the same thing about me. Keep up the good work. America needs to hear the way things ought to be,” Reagan went on to say.

Limbaugh is survived by his wife and many loyal fans who he inspired daily.
