His love of the United States earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald Trump during the State of the Union Address in 2020, shortly after he received his cancer diagnosis.

Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday morning at the age of 70 following a battle with advanced lung cancer, his wife Kathryn Limbaugh announced at the beginning of his Wednesday radio program.

In his last broadcast of 2020, Limbaugh thanked his listeners for their support as he opened up about his fight with terminal cancer.

First Lady Melania Trump presented him with the honor after her husband lauded Limbaugh as "a special man beloved by millions of Americans" and "the greatest fighter and victor that you will ever meet".

"It's tough to realize that the days where I do not think I'm under a death sentence are over".

After he went off the air on February 2 for treatment, Rudy Giuliani tweeted a "get well" message. He's done it with powerful rational argument and a truly great sense of humor.

The far-right Republican was best known as the host of his radio show "The Rush Limbaugh Show" and is widely recognized as one of the lead voices of the conservative movement in the early 90s. He landed a talk show on KFBK in Sacramento, California, in 1984. It debuted in 1988 on a handful of AM radio stations across the country, reports Fox News.
