Missouri House Passes Bill Honoring Legend by Creating ‘Rush Limbaugh Day’ on January 12th

Radio talk show host and legend Rush Limbaugh tragically passed at age 70 recently. This was after a toughly fought battle with stage four lung cancer.

Then President Donald Trump awarded Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom back when he was in office, cementing Limbaugh’s legacy of conservatism for years to come. Rush was a huge fan and friend of Trump’s.

It is being reported that the State House of Missouri is taking things another step further to keep Americans from forgetting about Limbaugh and his legacy. Candidate for U.S. Senate in South Carolina Tim Swain tweeting out the news recently:

“BREAKING

Missouri House just passed a bill creating “Rush Limbaugh Day” honoring the late conservative radio host every January 12th, his birthday.”

The House in Missouri is majority Republican, of course. The Limbaugh proposal was added as a provision to an existing bill that would recognize “the first full week in September of each year as ‘Fox Trotter Week’ in Missouri.”

The motion to create “Rush Limbaugh Day” on January 12th of every year will now go to the full senate for approval.

“Rush demonstrated courage to speak boldly and encouraged his listeners and viewers to reach for their dreams and to push onward beyond the naysayers and discouragers that we all encounter in life,” state Rep. Sara Walsh (R) told AP.

Democrats in Missouri were not thrilled, probably the same people who were not very friendly about the matter on the day Rush died sadly.

State Rep. Ashley Bland Manlove (D) slammed Limbaugh for his “constant attacks on Black people and other people of color,” the AP reported.

We will standby to see if former President Donald Trump weighs in on the matter in the meantime.
