Here’s How The Loving, Inclusive Left Is Reacting To Rush Limbaugh’s Cancer Announcement

Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh announced earlier this week that he has advanced lung cancer and will miss several days of his iconic talk show to undergo treatment.

“This day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory, for me, because I’ve known this moment was coming,” Limbaugh said in an announcement during the show.

“I’m sure that you all know by now that I really don’t like talking about myself, and I don’t like making things about me. … One thing that I know that has happened over the 31-plus years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that had developed between all of you and me.

“So, I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn’t have to tell you. It’s a struggle for me, because I had to inform my staff earlier today,” Limbaugh continued. “I can’t help but feel that I’m letting everybody down with this. But the upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.”

“Every day I’m not here, I’ll be missing you and thinking about you,” Limbaugh said as he concluded the show. “I thought about not telling anybody… It is what it is. You know me; I’m the mayor of Realville.”

“So this has happened, and my intention is to come here every day I can and to do this program as normally and as competently and as expertly as I do each and every day, because that is the source of my greatest satisfaction professionally, personally,” he continued.

“I told the staff today that I have a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about. But I do, and I have been working that relationship tremendously, which I do regularly anyway, but I’ve been focused on it intensely for the past couple of weeks,” Limbaugh said, noting that he is currently “experiencing zero symptoms.”

Limbaugh’s producer, Bo Snerdley, confirmed the announcement in a tweet:

Although Snerdley’s tweet was met with an avalanche of condolences and kind words toward Limbaugh and his loved ones, the ugly side of Twitter predictably came out as stacks of leftists (blue-checked and otherwise) celebrated the announcement.

You know, because that’s the loving, tolerant thing to do.

I mean, apart from the grace of God keeping you from being hit by a Guinness truck, this applies to all of us, Mr. Tyson.

Garbage. You’ve become garbage.

What a fun obituary.

Well, that was…odd.

Was that an imprecatory psalm or something?

So, an unsavory conservative commentator is on the same level with an abusive murderer? Duly noted.

Other prominent liberals, however, were eager to show their comrades how to act like a decent human being, like ex-Republican author Rick Wilson:

Democratic presidential candidate Tusli Gabbard also extended her condolences to Limbaugh, which earned her the relentless mocking of her liberal followers:
