Following a stint as a ticket salesman for Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals, in the mid-1980s, Limbaugh landed a job as an on-air host at KFBK in Sacramento, California, with the help of a radio executive friend. There, Limbaugh took over Morton Downey Jr.’s slot, and met with success when his ratings surpassed his predecessor’s. Less than a year later, Limbaugh became known as Sacramento’s top radio host.
In 1987, the Federal Communications Commission repealed a long-standing rule known as the Fairness Doctrine, which required both television and radio stations to air for an equal amount of time each side to a political argument. The repeal of the Fairness Doctrine ultimately paved the way for Limbaugh’s now-distinct, politically conservative radio style to take shape. Not long after, the on-air host left KFBK for a position at the ABC Radio Network, bringing his newfound fame with him, as well as a reputation for having strong, right wing ideologies.
The Rush Limbaugh Show, nationally syndicated from New York City by ABC Radio, premiered on August 1, 1988. Known for its heavy political focus and sometimes extreme conservative slant, The Rush Limbaugh Show has been on the air for more than two decades and is credited today as the highest-rated American talk radio program. The show is currently syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, and can be heard on nearly 600 stations nationwide.
In addition to his success on the radio, Limbaugh makes regular appearances as a political commentator on various TV programs, and has authored a number of magazine articles and books, including 1992’s best-selling The Way Things Ought to Be and 1993’s See, I Told You So. “It’s my job, it’s my life, it’s my career, it’s my passion,” Limbaugh once said about his politically charged career as a radio host, commentator and writer. “I’m doing what I love. I think I’m doing what I was born to do. I have no specific goals from this point forward. I never have had specific goals. I’ve always thought, ‘I know generally what I want to do. I want to be in media, I want to be in radio.’ It’s what I love. It’s what I do best. And I’m open to all opportunities that come my way.”
Limbaugh was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993.
John Jacewicz So, he wins a "peace" prize for being a half-white American, and a half un-American kenyan who has done nothing for "peace". He's a promoter of terrorism, both foreign and domestic. Hello, Chicago!?
Carolyn Walls Who cares! Just LEAVE already!😠. Don't remember any other president or his wife ever taking so much media time praising themselves before leaving office! Sad thing is--they won't go away like they should. Will still be in your face like the Clintons! What egos they have! 😠😂
Geneva Edwards Obama is a spineless, back stabbing SNAKE, and a pompous windbag. It doesn't matter how many awards he's won, he's still the worst president in the history of America.
Ray Cziczo Yes, but can you imagine what it would have been like if he did not receive his Nobel Peace Prize? Leo, seriously, still blaming George Bush? First of all the economy tanked because of Fannie and Freddie controlled by Democrats Schumer, Dodd, and Frank. Nine eleven came about because BJ Clinton degraded American intelligence. Bush inherited this mess from BJ. Lastly, Saddam did in fact use WMDs on his own people. Regarding the nukes. Saddam had years to hide them or give them to other Muslims neighbors.
Louis Keys Only PRESIDENT to lose a war we already won.Just grab a handful of medals PRESIDENT OBAMA an don't forget one for JOE an LEAVE!
Kathy Diehl-Eke This letter is written from a U.S. Serviceman. Mr. President Obama, “For the first time, I can say that I’m proud of my country.” No, these aren’t my words, they’re the words of your wife when you took office in 2009. This set the tone for the kind of President you’d be, and the kind of legacy you left behind. Your speech to your adoring fans screaming “Four more years!” makes for a good sound bite and video clip, but it doesn’t paint the picture of the tens of millions of regular Americans that voted you in twice and gotten stabbed in the back for it. You stood in front of hundreds of veterans and promised that their lives would be better after you took office, that they would get the care that their country owed them. Eight years later, the VA is more broken than ever and my brothers and sisters in arms are committing suicide at an all time high. You ignored the advice of wartime Generals and pulled troops out of an unstable country and gave rise to ISIS, the most evil group of people on the planet. This is your legacy. Our country is twice as much in debt as it was when you took office, to the tune of nearly $20 trillion. That number is so large that is may as well be monopoly money, and the only people that are footing the bill are our children, the ones that you cut off at the knees by taking millions in “donations” from bloated teachers’ unions. You know, the ones who hire teachers who can’t teach and can’t be fired. This is your legacy. You said that America became stronger, but all you did was apologize to corrupt world leaders and made deals with radical Muslims who want us and our allies in Israel to be wiped off the map. You downplayed terrorist attacks as workplace violence, and used national tragedies to trample on the second amendment rights of law abiding citizens. You legitimized the hateful Black Lives Matter movement and gave them the ability to poison the minds of our inner city youth, then stood on the graves on the officers that lost their lives as a result and had the audacity to lecture grieving police officers about race relations. This is your legacy. You said middle America clings to God and guns, while you wage war on both. You tried to pass yourself off as a Christian, while telling radical Muslim nations that practice Sharia Law that you stand with them. This is your legacy. You spoke about Obamacare being a force for good, but don’t have the common sense to realize that holding a gun to the heads of people who work for a living, to pay for the ones that don’t, makes everyone worse off. Making it illegal for people not to have coverage is exactly the kind of socialism that conservatives warned about before you got into office. You dismissed these claims as conspiracy theories, but now we have regular, healthy families having to pay tens of thousands of dollars for the bare minimum of healthcare. This is your legacy. Before you were elected, you made the case that the first black President would be a milestone for this country. Eight years later, you’re standing on the podium, saying “Yes, We Did,” like you’ve accomplished something other than playing a record amount of golf as the country gets ready for its second great recession. This is your legacy. What may come as a surprise to you and the rest of the now farleft pundits that run the media is, the color of your skin never mattered to America. It was the policies that attracted Americans, the decency and unity that you said you’d restore to this nation, and it was the betrayal of these ideas which gave us an actual outsider, and the person that you failed to stop, Donald Trump. Your Presidency was a wakeup call for America. You said that you’re now motivated to chime in about our political system as a citizen, but I’m here to tell you, as someone who loves this country and will fight to the death to protect the Constitution that you referred to as “just a piece of parchment,” that America has awakened to your selfserving ideology and they’ve had enough of you. In ten days, a new President will take up residence in the White House and your eight years of unconstitutional executive orders that sets violent criminals free, disastrous economic policies, and weak foreign policies will be erased. You will be the President that will be remembered by those too young to know any better, not as a champion and protector of our rights and Constitution, but as a celebrity. Everything you’ve done to this country over your eights years will be wiped from the history books, and your legacy, as much as it hurts right now, will be nothing more than a distant memory. I wish you farewell, and I’m hopeful for the future of my country, which just proved that it deserves someone better than you.
Jeff Camp That's what happens when you retreat. If Roosevelt and Truman had run like Obama, WW2 would have lasted until the 50s --- when the Nazis would have perfected and used atomic bombs and we'd be paying allegiance to the swastika today.
Kara Kneubuhler And when Obama said he would end the two wars we were in, what he really meant was that he and Hillary would start a third one in Syria.
Ned Elliott He campaigned on ending it all and ended up making things exponentially worse.
Jim Doyle The first Nobel Prize winner based solely on skin color.
Bradley Shatinsky Being retired from the PA State Police, I can now say he created a racial war in our nation again all police agencies. Believe me, I'm a white Trooper & Criminal investigation Supervisor, but also almost gave my life in 1993 working UC to correct racial bisas... I've been blessed by being friends with many....
Diana Coleman Did he get us into any of those wars. Hypocrites!!! The wars that President Obama had to deal with were started by GOP administrations. The same as the deficit he inherited from bailing out the big banks. Thank you President Bush
Hazel Nolan I consider he was at war every day with the real American people. Otherwise he wouldnt have held us captive by signing so many mandates & bypassing our representative form of government. He wouldnt have apologised for America every time he traveled to another country. He wouldnt have declared us a nonChristian nation while filling the Capitol with Muslims. He divided us by stirring up racism every time he could get on tv for any kind of tragedy. Yes, Obama has been at war with America for 8 years.
Margaret McGoldrick Mucciolo So they awarded President Obama a peace prize 2 months into his term cause they thought he'd bring peace to the world - they "assumed" he would. Complete opposite occurred -just look within the US such unrest. This is y awarding people for a job they haven't yet done is never a good idea. Can we take it back??!
David A Long He was also at war against USA citizens and against everything right and good in America every day too. He was at war with our beloved valiant men and women in blue. He was at war with Christians and Christian Churches in the USA and around the world and harassed them with his radical leftist sociology and Muslim agenda. He was at war against men and women and natural sexuality and marriage. He was at war against the Peace in Jerusalem and intentionally aggravated the tension between Jews and Arabs. He was at war against Black and White and worked vigorously to divide our Great Nation. He was at war with human dignity and life and promoted unashamedly the killing of human children in their mothers womb. There is nothing "Nobel" or deserving of "Peace Prize" with anything about President Barak Hussein Obama. Actually his real name is "Barry Soetoro".
Leigh Hawes The war on terror is not a true war by definition... yes we have lost many of our brave young souls... but what other government are we fighting against... terrorism has no government and even if it did, B.O. would apologize to them for anything and everything.
Mike Manginella Now now Rush, Obama, just like all elitist dems knew, and I mean he really knew that he knows more than any of us clingers. It's just that we refused to go along with his plans. How dare we not hoist him upon our shoulders and proclaim him the messiah. If we had only done that then assuredly the rest of the world would have gotten on board and we would now be living in utopia. It's our fault, he tried to show us the way
William Bouchie I lost all confidence in the, "Nobel Peace Prize" since they gave it to Obama just for becoming the president. It ranks right up there with my, "Could Care Less" thoughts of what, "Motor Trends Car of the Year" is, since they nominated Obama's, "Chevy Volt" pick, after it only sold 250 cars nationwide that year...
Jeff Schultz Thank God GW had "mission accomplished" before he left office. Just think what America would be like now if Bush did not get rid of those WMDs and made sure every American had a house whether they could afford it or not.
Juan-Paz Pena President Obama will be considered as one of the greatest of USA presidents and he gave us eight wonderful years. Donald Trump will not last a year before he is impeached, convicted and removed as USA president...
David Fults Below is a transcript of the excerpt that appeared on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley. Steve Kroft:You didn’t change Washington. President Barack Obama: I changed those things that were in direct-- my direct control. I mean, I-- look, I’m proud of the fact that, with two weeks to go, we’re part of the first administration in modern history that hasn’t had a major scandal in the White House. In that sense, we changed some things. I would’ve liked to have gotten that one last Supreme Court justice in there. I’d like the Supreme Court to take a look at--
Jennifer Elsrod Crawford Yeah...but the Left just says it's Bush's fault! Never mind that we had another budding Democracy in the Middle East which Obama threw away. Worst.President.Ever. SO glad he's almost gone.
Joanne Hume The hypocrisy. Obama is leaving with the country more divided, the long blue line regularly attacked, the debt going up by 9 trillion dollars from 10 trillion more than any other president, & we paid for 85 million dollars in vacations. He can't leave too soon.
Marla Haney I would say that's not entirely his fault, but it really is. He could have done so many things differently and saved American lives. And let's not forget to count the lives lost to ISIS, that was created by his inexperience and complete lack of understanding about how war and military might are supposed to work.
Don Hoe Spoken like a true racist let the orange idiot make us look even more pathetic. You don't like Barack Obama because he's Black plain and simple your an embarrassment to humanity.
Billy Shea But it was McCain who handed it over. So he should be forced to either resign or officially change his party affiliation. He is the most powerful Democrat in the Republican party
John Johnson George Soros and the Clinton machine still at work. Hungary is kicking Soros out of their country, its time for America to do the same including the Clintons and Obama !!!!
Becky Turner Whithaus How black & depraved is the heart that comes up with such filth! Shame on the democrats (& republicans) who were involved in this.
Natalie Heflin And McCain was on TV last night and admitted that he gave the fake brief to the FBI in August. So if the Democrats wrote it then MCCAin was working with Hillary to get her elected. McCain is a senor member and has had many briefing you and I both know he knew it was fake.
Marilyn Pennington These people are vile and evil! They don't care one bit about what is best for the country, they put their own hate for Trump above the best interest of the country.
Mark Procacci Go figure.... I'm not surprised about anything they will do, and the sad thing is folks, it's not going to end! It will be a non stop barrage of lies and corruption from the left.
Katyrose Walker Chapman All roads lead to the Clintons. If they can't be in control they will do everything they can to get their opponent off track. So much for unity.
Brian Duffey I have a feeling that these institutions like Planned Parenthood or the think tanks that come out with this false information. May end up as a target in the cross hair of Trump. So when Planned Parenthood losses funding we will know why. It will be a hard lessons for the left to learn.
Sharon Shelton The entire Democratic Party, as it is right now today, is the most divisive, corrupt, self-promoting, un-American, bigoted, foul-mouthed, filthy, dishonest, lazy, unrepentant, radical, ungodly, baby-killing, bunch of egotistical narcissists that I've ever seen, and I'm so ashamed of you! I'm happy to say, that the only thing we have in common, is the air we breathe!!
Ryan Thomas Good. We know exactly where to strike. These juvenile tricks failed in the election, they will fail now. People have no faith in the media or politicians anymore, any other attempt like this will only further increase the enmity between the people, the MSM, and beltway politicians.
Willa Thompson I honestly didn't realize that the Democrat Party was so filthy and vile. What kind of depraved people dream up these things. It's sickening.
Chris Norman The Democrat party trying to slander a Republican president, what a shocker. They probably took a page from Bill Clinton's wild weekend stories and used it against Trump, I wouldn't put it past them.
Jim Kershner If I were DT I'd sue them into the 'stoned' age, and make sure that Johnny McCocaine was indited as a co-defendant along with all the MSM 'news' outlets that ran with the 'story'.
Vivian Wakefield Hurst I have not read the article. So, the big boo boo was that Mr. Trump had prostitutes pee on a hotel bed in Moscow because the Obamas' slept there? So, does anyone see how stupid this thing is? Was it illegal? Why would anyone think they are getting revenge or whatever by doing this? This sounds like it was written by a 13-year-old with a warped mind. The left is trying to make Mr. Trump look bad, but they are making themselves look like idiots. The real story is how totally stupid the story is.
James Nash Doesn't surprise me at all that this bogus "report" originated with the baby-murderers at Planned Parenthood! McCain...Lindsay Graham...PP...ALL protecting their status quo tax money theft operations! Criminals ALL! Arrest and prosecute them ALL!!! Drain that swamp, President Trump!!!
Peggy Sue Liimatta I love when Trump exposes them for the hateful liars they are.
Lynda Pietka Thank-you for explaining this to us!!! No doubt this low-life behavior will continue for the next 4-8 yrs, but we are still triumphant and happy our new President is Donald J. Trump!
Pat Chambers No doubt in my mind. McCain is a Democrat. ...when you're on he'll's pa yroll, you're a Democrat. What an embarrassment to Arixona.
Bonnie Cliber A lot of the commentators are saying the person should be prosecuted! I hope they are! Set an example finally this bs from Obama at the top down and all his ABC Govt.offices that were never held accountable for anything us over!! They need to start being held accountable for their actions!
Larry Rowe This takes a really deranged mind to thank of this. I am not shocked. I am not stunned. Trump is everything the left hates.
Stacey DeLano Not shocking to me! It just kills me that people continue to do the Clinton's dirty work without question!!
Glen Houston Democrats have officially become the party of disinformation. They believe the ends justify the means. Anything they can do to further their godless agenda is justifiable. They are desperate; out of power and dangerous... Nothing is beneath them.
Cathie McKee I've thought Clinton's have been way to quiet. Likely waiting for this "report" to surface. With their history, much of it dubbed "gate" it would be easy to believe! Remember Travelgate where she wanted the man at WH in charge of travel replaced with friends of hers. She tried to get rid of him by having him charged with fraud. After years of loyal service she put him through hell. She ruined a fine gentleman but courts found him innocent of all charges but the personal damage was done. If she would do this over a travel office position what is capable of over what she felt was due her, POTUS position!
Guy Mouras With each and every one of these bogus attacks on Trump, the left's spiral into irrelevancy tightens. Apparently, they all missed school on the day the "Chicken Little" and "Boy who cried Wolf" fables were discussed ...
Michele James Winkler The Democratic Party is a sick and vile entity of our government!!! They have been tainted by corruption and greed!!! The American people have rejected you!!!
Rush Limbaugh added a new photo.January 16th, 2017 at 6:45am
Michael Sowards Thank you Mr. Rush Limbaugh for all the years of education of our political system and how important it is to vote. Happy Birthday to the Master
Doug Bess Rush, I wish you a Happy Birthday. It was on this day in 1980 that my wife, Marcelle, and I were married and are to this day and for years to come. Little did we know then that our anniversary would coincide with the birthday of the master of conservative talk radio! I pray that God will give you many more years of broadcasting excellence.
Joan Molnar Happy Birthday to a great patriot!!! I've been listening since early 1990, and you have been the voice I turn to for sanity, when the country has been under assault by the worst of the worst. Thank you for all you do for our country. God bless you, and God bless America!🇺🇸🎂🎉❤
Gloria Haefner Happy Birthday Rush! You are a gift to this country, and more and more people recognize your love for America and your desire to explain the craziness going on in this country! Thank you for all you do and may God bless and keep you safe always!
Connie Cathcart You have calmed me during the crazy storms of the last 8 years. You have taught me so much and I appreciate the history books for kids you have written. I listen to you to educate myself and clarify events. I do this whenever possible. Thank you so much! Happy Birthday from a fellow January baby!
Jacqueline Mack Happy Birthday Mr. Limbaugh. Until 1998, when I began listening to you, I was a liberal. You helped educate and and inform me and I believe, helped to assist me in becoming a better person by understanding how the world works and the impact fake liberalism has on the all of us. You are one of my heroes. Thank you and know you make a difference.
Andrew Goodwin Happy birthday Rush! May god bless you with many more years of teaching at the "institute for advanced conservative studies".
Gloria Galofre-Ross Happy birthday, Rush; you have been teaching me since early 90's, when I discovered you. May our Lord Jesus Christ protect you, and your family always!
Daniel Senger Happy Birthday sir. I have listened to you on the radio for years. I used to watch your television show years ago when I was still in single digits age wise. Every morning I would sit there with my father as he had his morning coffee and we would watch Rush Limbaugh. Of course I had no idea what politics was at the time, but I do love the memory.
Don Haussler Have a great birthday!!! Stay strong and keep up the good work of keeping American public on track with the major issues of our day
Laura Ann Brown HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Rushy!! You're the best -- please keep doing what you're doing! My husband and I have been listening to your radio program for 20 years and we're big fans!
Kristen Bellinger Happy Birthday, Rush! I've been listening to you since I was in school. My mom was a school teacher and we'd listen in the house together when we were on Christmas or Summer breaks. When I became an adult I'd listen to you every day at work, and when I came home to parent my kids, at home! My son even started parroting the "It's Open Line Friday" intro at the age of two. Thanks for being a steady part of my family's life, and helping us to not freak out when stuff is going on that seems worth freaking out over :-)
Beverly Browning Happy B-day Rush! No one on the Radio or Tv who knows what you know! Your the best entertainment with knowledge there is! Listening for 26 years! Hope it's 26 more!
Melissa Shillinglaw Aww, today is my son's birthday too! He is 2 years old 🎉👶🏼 I sure hope he follows in Rush's footsteps- a critical thinker and a great Patriot!
A'Lucia L. Harper Happy Birthday to one of my favorite radio personalities,, honest, trustworthy. dedicated to America . and even if I am an old (86) I still think you are sexy>!!
Harry Towns Happy Birthday Rush have listened since 88 or sometime in there. My Birthday today also and it is amazing how you and I have like thoughts. I think I've had them always but my wife thinks you think for me. I'm by no means as learnef as you but I am older I'm 69 today.
Maryann Gerber Happy birthday! Rush. I've been a loyal listener since you've been on the radio and enjoy listening to you 5 days a week. I depend on you, like others to report the truth in your daily news. Have a great! Birthday
Jerry McFarland Great stuff over the years. No doubt you are the leader who brought us to this point in our history: real folks are hard working, country loving and know how to fight back when things get way out of line. Your ideas matter. Thank you!
Camile Barnes Hey big guy!!! Congratulations . . . another year and now that the Dem's are out of the White House life's getting better every day!
Maria Burham Happy Birthday Rush!! Have been listening to you since I came to this beautiful country, 23 years ago! I have learned so much from you, not just about the history and politics of this country, but about morals, ethics and respect. Thank you for your hard work and dedication, and Happy Birthday!!
Familia Byram Happy birthday Rush! I'm so grateful for your hard work and for being the main conservative voice is this country. I have learn so much from you and love listening to show. So glad you are back from your vacation, we really missed you. We love you Rush 😘
Linda Butera Happy birthday Rush, thank you for holding fast to your conservative worldviews and making a difference in our country. Looking forward to January 20 and our new President, Donald Trump and our new First Lady and first family, so excited to see America great again!God Bless You Rush!
Cathy McKenzie Thank you Rush , my husband and i have listened throughout our 25 years of marriage. You have gotten us thru!! Your humor and ability to illustrate the absurd by being absurd😂😂😂 God bless you on your next trip around the sun❤
Carol Blanar-Lader Happy Birthday to a man who has the full attention of my honey bun for 3 hours each day.....a miracle to say the least; it does take me a bit longer to get his attention - but I love him nonetheless. Happiness to you Rush.
Patricia J. Ewers Happy Birthday Rush..Thanks for all you do to enlighten your listeners. You provided a lot of calm during this past election..You are amazing..So thankful for you.
Buddy Peyton Trump has a rich history of hitting back when one decides to swing first... only Trump hits bone... The game has changed in Washington, and Trump is the shot caller... Love this guy.
Andrea Linda They just don't understand The Deporables. We were already here. We were already pissed. We just had someone start saying what we are too small to be heard saying. They can't turn us.
Paul Dickson While waiting to be seen at the VA in Hammond. ....on TV. ..Fox news was getting ready to broadcast president elect Trump's press conference. ....one of the employees. ...a transport van driver. ...came in and turned it to another station. ....stating that he had been told to do so.. "because it's too controverrsal"....the Commander in chief of the Armed Forces is too controversal for the VA. ....I am not a huge fan of Trump's......but he will be our president. ...and certainly should be recognized as such.
Eek Loussia We need to stop using the lefts new word "fake news" and call it what it's been called "propaganda." You can change a word, that doesn't change the meaning of it.
Lisa Ariaso Hair Dear Libtards, we the Deplorables will always support Trump no matter what. So give it up. You lost, we won! And Donald Trump is the new President 😅
Lois Jones Howell I enjoyed watching Pres. Elect Trump's press conference. I should clarify. He was not my first choice for President... nor second, but the more I hear him speak, he is reflecting the sentiments of many of us. I'm so tired of yellow journalism, partisan politics and political correctness. Trump looks at them and says, "You're a liar, you should be ashamed of yourself." and we cheer.
Vivian Wakefield Hurst Even with the lies exposed and the real truth told, there are Democrats who refuse to believe that their source of News did anything wrong. You are right Mr Limbaugh, there is nothing we can say or post on FB that will change their minds.
Irene Tower Barney I don't think Washington has ever dealt with someone like Trump. He isn't intimidated by them and calls a thing what it is. He isn't planning on making gov't his career and he doesn't need their money or approval. I love this guy more and more as time goes on. He will be a great President!!
Wendy Hute How about calling it what it is: LIES. I love that Buzzfeed sent this out with NO authorization the day after BO's goodbye boohoo speech. I'm sure he's fuming that this is the top news story today. LOL!!
Jackie Amell Parsons Let's hope that before they self destruct that someone with some brains just makes them honest. Opinions have a place in any news organizations but political agendas that call for distortion and lying do not.
Tom Jue Sounds like it's time to clean house in the intelligence community. If someone would leak political information for one side or the other then they would just as easily sell info to foreign countries. Traitors in waiting so to speak. Can't have that in our intelligence agencies. Too dangerous for all Americans. Make the agencies leak proof or roll some heads. Sooner the better.
Scott LaPlante Credibility of the MSM has received a mortal blow. The election cycle blitz, the polling they conducted and reported, and now the ongoing nonsense in the post-election period have all contributed to this. They have been weighed and measured, and found wanting. Mr Trump will continually keep them on the defensive, and their position will not improve until they choose to improve.
Susan Engler You are so right! Slander, outright lies, twisted so-called logic, praise of killary and falsely drummed up polls, blaming city riots on disgruntled anti- trumpers (who happened to be paid protestors not even knowing what they were protesting), none of this bogus reporting worked!
Pat Gauldin Matthews I don't believe a word the news people say, the current federal government, any of the Democratic Party, nor half of the Republican Party. I am sure there are a lot of people who feel the same way I do. They could tell me Trump had dinner and I would not believe them, just because they were the ones doing the telling.
Thomas Beardslee The Establishment, including news media, politicians, Entertainment liberals and now Intelligence rogues are seeing the end of life as they know it, and Trump is the reason. They will continue to try to destroy him and stop him from helping this country recover. We the People need to be prepared to help when needed. MAKE SOME NOISE!
Chris Norman CNN had it coming, and to all the outraged liberals out there, where was your outrage when Obama did basically the same thing to Fox News? Turnabout is fair play!
Tony Prangner CNN is longer a news organization, it is part of the DNC. The FCC should pull their license.
Charles Poole Trump calls out The Lying Tongue of Satan as Fake News! Why would any conservative, constitutionalist, libertarian, member of the tea party or member of the moral majority even waste their time or give these demons the time of day?
Julie Roe It is so sad to hear the "news" and not be able to take it as gospel. It is so hard to understand what is truth and what is propaganda! How do we as Americans sort out truth from fiction?
Susie McFadden Never been someone like President Trump...He does not owe the Establishment anything. He is so unique no one knows what he is going to do next or say. Close his Twitter account? You only hurt yourself! Hang on "FOLKS" it's not going to be a smooth ride, keep your seatbelts on!
Ted Lansberry Keep it up lefties. At LEAST 8 more years of GOP. Not that the current GOP is all that great.... but it' a hell of a lot better than what the idiotic (and increasingly greater everyday) democrats have to offer.
Ken Irvin should pass a law that says if you are a news or media outlet and you broadcast news that is phony or un-sourced, they can be sued for libel or defamation.............that includes these so-called "opinion" pinheads. The way these op-ed and MSM people feel is that opinions are like orgasms........My having one is important, and I don't care if you have one.
Harold J-r Zenitsky CNN and MSNBC have been so blatantly biased, deceptive and dishonest for many, many years. Unfortunately, they have been allowed to successfully brainwash and convert the weak minded, naive and gullible people in this country into completely misguided, disrespectful and delusional thinking liberals. Then the Trump man said, "Nevermore." : )
Danny J. Farley It's because we can read right through there bull. Someone should just shut down CNN and any other left wing media outlets. There sure not News Worthy
Urszula Wudarczyk No matter how much we want to believe that popular press is an expression of freedom, it is actually heavily censored. There is so much propaganda that it covers all the truly horrific things that have been happening the last 8 years, hiding what we should be informed about. For example, the public was fed these crazy stories to divide the nation. The media also loves spreading fear to distract everyone, in most instances it was so that the President could pass executive orders. All the corruption has been censored out and the nonsense sugarcoated, and small good deeds amplified to paint a false picture of bliss and happiness. I have been very careful about what I read these days. Between what is written about in the press versus what I see outside are two different worlds. I have to be the judge of which one to believe.
Curtis Werbecky I was never a Trump supporter but i am now on the Trump train. What he did today exposed the media hate and racism towards the american people. CNN and some others should be banned from press conferences until they apologize to the american people for being leftist and one sided.
Sharon Powers Geyer Great press conference. Great President-Elect. Great words "You are fake news" to the rude CNN reporter!!
John Knoll Finally someone who will talk back to the media. It's one of the main reasons Trump won..
Melania Babu Teja The liberal press are in total meltdown!!! Love it! Best thing all day.GO Donald J. Trump.
Larry Settle It's about time a Republican pushed back against media bias and it's a beautiful thing.
William Ball This was the best of the BEST as far as a press conference goes. Trump put this FOOL from cn in a place that they hopeful won't CRAWL out of. What I loved was he did NOT MINCE words, he called it like it ( IS ). Beautifuly done.
Robin Wingard Stephens A work of art. Rush, you know how to eloquently bottom-line things. You never fail to hit the spot. Good for you! LOVED the opening hour as you chuckled at Trump's responses to the press. Priceless, both of you!
Lori Gallivan Anderson I watched the press conference and it was the first one of Trumps pressers I've seen. I voted for him as my conscience wouldn't allow me to abstain from voting (my only other choice). I like how Mr. Trump handled things.
Cheryll Garcia Trump spanked CNN and Buzzfeed so hard , I heard it in Hawaii.
Charles Gould Great Conference especially the CNN Fake news reporter.
Rhonda Adkins Barry never called on anyone he thought would ask him a legit question. He had a list in front of him from which he called out the name. Probably because he already knew what the friendly, biased medias next question was in advance. We know the Dems play that game because of Hillary and the debates.
Cheri Russell Sorry - I just can't stop laughing at the miserableness of the faux news. President -Elect Trump slamming the faux media! Priceless!
Gary Baker That CNN reporter kept trying to talk over top of Trump trying to get his question out and Trump Keep telling him to sit down your fake news sit down your fake news it was great it was wonderful well done President TRUMP.... we love you...
Jason Griffiths The press is finally getting what it deserves. Give em hell President Trump.
Rebecca Edwards Iken It. Was. Hilarious. I love how he trolls the libs SO HARD!
Ryan Thomas You have to love how panicked and whiny the media is now that they no longer have an accomplice in Obama or Clinton and a target who won't fight back like previous Republican administrations. Trump will always swing harder, and Rush is right, they have no idea what to do.
Mark Ickes To all and to everywhere. The United States, my United States in 9 days will have a real man as her president. Folks the nightmare of the Islamic president are almost over. Thank you God6.
Joan Blakemore The more I hear our President elect Donald Trump talk the more I LOVE HIM!!! To call out that fake news was priceless!!!!
Paul Dickson While waiting to be seen at the VA in Hammond. ....on TV. ..Fox news was getting ready to broadcast president elect Trump's press conference. ....one of the employees. ...a transport van driver. ...came in and turned it to another station. ....stating that he had been told to do so.. "because it's too contraversal"....the Commander in chief of the Armed Forces is too contraversal for the VA. ....I am not a huge fan of Trump's......but he will be our president. ...and certainly should be recognized as such.
Jennifer Kunath-Bowling It was brilliant and the best thing I have ever seen! And nothing like I have ever seen in my life! He says what we cannot say!
TerriAnn Clidence Arrington The CIA and the FBI are at fault for all hacks, we should be unhackable. Hilary Clinton called for free pizza with her unsecured servers. That's why she left (had to leave). The press is Crazy! I've never seen anything like this before. I'd keep twitting if I was Trump. Who needs the press or Hollywood. We sure don't. Can't wait for Trump to fire homeland security!
Chad Myrick Trump put CNN over his knee and wore them out with a two inch leather belt during his press conference. An unbiased media is critical as a check on elected officials...key word being unbiased. The American media sold its soul slobbering over Obama...even if, as a whole, it's always been liberal. They spent 8 years up Obama's rectum and NOW want to be taken seriously as a check on Trump. And they NEED to be an unbiased check on whoever is president...but they abandoned that responsibility in exchange for trying to advance their own personal agendas, political and otherwise...especially in the past eight years. It's a long road for the mainstream media to recoup all the credibility they've lost with the American people.
Mike Rippl there was a time when the media would sit there quietly and wait to be called upon. I find this disgusting. he's the President elect. show some respect
John Vinet The guy is a master of throwing it back at the media & in typical liberal fashion, they can't handle it when they get a dose of their playbook.
Bill Kersey He has the liberal marxist propaganda bureau so confounded by him calling them liars and completely disrespecting the disrespectful so called American mainstream media !! This is going to completely change the way these maggots have decieved the people !! I think even a large portion of the liberal left will see a change in America that will benifit them into converting to pro American logical thinking !!!
