Scalise: Pelosi Was ‘Disgraceful’ For Not Standing While Limbaugh Was Honored



Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said Rush Limbaugh "inspired millions of people, still does to this day."

In this clip, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) tells Fox News it was disgraceful that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did not stand to acknowledge Rush Limbaugh when he was awarded the Medal of Freedom during Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address.

Scalise said Limbaugh "inspired millions of people, still does to this day ... he speaking truth to power, on both sides by the way."

Limbaugh announced this week that he is seeking treatment for lung cancer, resulting in his invitation to the SOTU, where President Trump presented him with the medal — the country’s highest civilian honor.

His illness notwithstanding, Limbaugh has spent his talk radio career spreading conspiracy theories, demonizing Democrats, and spreading every type of -ism that exists.

No, but Boehner, and Ryan were disrespectful for not standing when Obama was President, and Trump was disrespectful when he mocked a disabled reporter, a Gold Star Family, women in general, military leaders, etc....


He came so close to death...learned nothing! Evil to the core! Have never seen so many Russian Assets except for the GOP party! He claims to be Christian...ha ha ha ha! Rushy is that toxic piece of scum at the bottom of the barrel just like his Orange nemesis. God what a complete horrific POS!


Welcome to Trumplican politics where no one respects anyone of the opposing party. Our new monarch, King Donald the 1st, and his republican following do this all the time, his predecessors in congress were also very skilled at this, Boehner, Ryan and oh, who was it that screamed "liar" to President Obama during his 1st SOTU? I'm sorry, but this lack of respect has Republican origins. It makes this Republican ashamed of my own party. Where Pelosi is concerned, Trump should have taken her hand when offered. Cry baby, cry!
