Al Franken: Rush Limbaugh ‘Spewed Lies,’ He Got the Presidential Medal of Freedom Because ‘Without Rush There Is No Trump’

‘He spewed lies’
By Grabien Staff


FRANKEN: "There is a reason that Rush Limbaugh got the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Donald Trump. Without Rush Limbaugh, there is no Donald Trump. I wrote a book called 'Rush Limbaugh Is a Big, Fat Idiot and Other Observations' in 1995. Rush was an incredibly effective broadcaster. He was the first to understand, when the fairness doctrine went away in 1987, how to exploit that. And he had a listenership of 20 million people. He spewed lies. And after him there was Fox, and I wrote a book about that too. And after that the Internet, and Breitbart, Newsmax, and now social media. And because of that, we have two universes of information. One of them targets Trump’s people. And of course Donald Trump will continue for the rest of his days saying he won in a landslide. And we know he didn’t, but there is probably 85% of the Republican Party who believes him, and that is extremely disturbing for the future of our country.”
