Only days after receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor, from President Donald Trump, controversial talk radio host Rush Limbaugh launched an attack on Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.
While discussing the results of the New Hampshire primary — where Buttigieg came in second — Limbaugh said that Trump would “have fun” with the former South Bend Mayor, who “loves kissing his husband on debate stages.” The host concluded that Americans are not ready to elect an openly gay candidate, sparking intense backlash. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is now slamming Limbaugh, according to The Hill.
