Monday, Rush Limbaugh gave an emotional open to his show, informing the audience that his lung cancer has progressed and is now terminal. “It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh said.
Fans and industry peers alike responded with thoughts and prayers for the ailing icon, but not radio hack Michael Savage, who instead tweeted his disapproval of Limbaugh’s approach:
“Limbaugh’s crying about his cancer on air! Worst 15 minutes in radio history! Spilled a large coffee all over counter and floor. I PROMISE MY AUDIENCE THIS- I WILL NOT DRAG YOU DOWN WITH ME! Best wishes RUSH, but stop and leave the stage with dignity.
Twitter is often toxic and filled with low-level cancel culture participants. But every once in a while, it offers us something good. Such was the case when users came together and eviscerated Savage’s savagery.
No one dunked on him harder than Megyn Kelly.

Kelly’s latest Jon Snow-slaying follows her recent takedown of Mark Cuban, Will Cain’s annihilation of Dan Wolken, and Candace Owens’ first-round knockout of LeBron James. All are great and worth revisiting.
We at OutKick send our thoughts and prayers to Rush Limbaugh and his family.
We’re also glad to hear that Michael Savage is still around. We’d forgotten all about him.
