President Trump first appeared on Fox News via phone earlier today to mourn the passing of Limbaugh. National File reported:
When asked about how he felt Limbaugh supported or did not support his America First agenda, President Trump instead spoke to the character and intellect of the passed radio pioneer.
“Rush is irreplaceable, unique, and he had an audience that was massive, and you know he could do something, he would get up in the show, and would just talk,” said President Trump. “He wouldn’t take phone calls, where everybody would call in every two minutes, and that’s sort of easy to do. He would just talk for two hours, three hours, just talk. And that’s not an easy thing to do. I once asked him, do you study for the show? And he said, actually I study very hard, which a little bit surprised me.”
“He was a fantastic man, a fantastic talent, and people, whether they loved him or not, they respected him. They really did.”
President Trump also released a written statement on the passing of Limbaugh this afternoon.
