Limbaugh Fires Back at Don Lemon, ‘Who Sleeps With Men, Proudly’


Rush Limbaugh did not appreciate being called a “stunt king” by CNN’s Don Lemon. On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh not only went after Lemon’s role as a commentator for CNN but also his sexual orientation.

Like everything else in the news this week, this newfound feud concerns Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, whose racist comments Limbaugh claimed Monday were only causing him problems because he “did not give enough money to Obama.” Lemon picked up on this train of thought later in the day, telling CNN’s Erin Burnett, “If we didn’t know then, that Rush Limbaugh is a stunt king, then we know now.”

“Over at CNN, they interpreted that to mean that I was defending Sterling!” Limbaugh said Tuesday. “How did they get there? I don’t know how they get there. Erin Burnett played the sound bite and then went to Mr. Black Hole himself, Don Lemon (who sleeps with men, proudly) for comment.”

Guessing that CNN got the clip of his joke from Media Matters, Limbaugh tore into the network for not realizing he was making a joke. “These people have no sense of humor, particularly when it comes to Obama,” he said. “They have no sense of humor whatsoever. Everybody listening to this program knew I was making a joke (and a quite good one, by the way, if I say so myself) that if Sterling had just given a little bit more to Obama, everything would be okay.”

From there, Limbaugh began mocking Lemon’s now-infamous question about whether it really is “preposterous” to think the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 plane flew into a black hole. “You have a story like Sterling and all these people go on TV,” Limbaugh said, “and they try to outdo each other being the most offended, the most outraged, the most hurt, the most harmed, the most sensitive, the most in touch and so forth… Crackpots everywhere!”
