That wasn't the only surprise in store for them and the nation though, during the State of the Union when President Donald Trump singled out radio host Rush Limbaugh and awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom (full video at the end of this article).

"What an incredible week", said talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh opened his show Friday (Feb. 7), the first time he sat in front of his golden microphone since he shocked broadcasters and fans with the revelation that he has advanced lung cancer.

Those opposed to President Trump awarding Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom immediately began to protest, pointed out the Washington Post.

Trump reportedly intends to give Limbaugh the award some time in the coming days or weeks.

The "sentiments" and "thoughts" that people have shared with him "makes me one of the luckiest people alive", Limbaugh said.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh recently revealed he has advanced lung cancer.


The Medal of Freedom is the U.S.' highest civilian honor and is given to those "who have made exceptional contributions to the security or national interests of America, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors". I can not escape... (the feeling that I'm) letting everybody down with this. Fox News reports Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez felt the metal was unearned. "That is going to resonate with a large number of other people, I ensure you, and the Power-Bys are going to pooh-pooh it", he mentioned.

Limbaugh is widely considered one of the most high-profile conservative media personalities in the country. Really mean. Send a lot of prayers for Rush Limbaugh to counteract this evil, "said filmmaker Robby Starbuck. I first realized something was wrong on my birthday weekend, January 12th", Limbaugh said.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah also called out Limbaugh's history of being "racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and sexist" in a segment on his Comedy Central show while playing a medley of some of Limbaugh's most egregious comments.


"I'm a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, man".

Many Democrats in the House tonight clearly were upset by Trump's decision to honor Limbaugh and chanted "no".
