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