Matt Rourke/AP/Shutterstock Limbaugh’s comments come after President Trump awarded him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom during his State of the Union address on Feb. 4. A wave of criticism came shortly after news broke that Trump would give the radio host, who has a long history of controversial speech, the award – widely regarded as the highest civilian honor. “First of all, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is an extraordinarily sacred award. We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks, for example, in terms of their contributions to American progress,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Instagram after Trump paused his State of the Union speech to give Limbaugh the award. “Rush Limbaugh is a virulent racist.” Last week on The View , Buttigieg was asked how he would respond an Iowa voter who said in a viral video that she changed her mind about voting for him during the Iowa Caucus after she learned he was gay. “Well, what I want her to know is that I’m running to be her president, too,” he said, as the audience applauded his response. “Of course, I wish she was able to see that my love is the same as her love for those that she cares about, that my marriage means as much to me as hers, if she’s married.” By Read more: People

No matter one’s politics or regardless of whether or not they vote for Pete, such comments and homophobia don’t belong in political discourse. Address the policies, don’t attack the person. Take that medal away from that racist!! So what. Rush Limbaugh is a POS. I still can’t believe he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Very disappointing

Like is cancer not enough for that dude? It's easier on the eye than seeing this on Rush. But 'America IS ready to elect a guy boning a porn star while watching Shark Week while his wife is home with their baby son.'

Can Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar keep up their primary success in South Carolina, Nevada?'It's hard to win here if you don't have sizable support within the African American community.
