Waitress Allegedly Donates Rush Limbaugh’s $2,000 Tip to Abortion Charity

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity.

Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

Both times she waited on Limbaugh and his friend, sportscaster Al Michaels, he left $1,000 in tips on modest bills, but the cash felt “like blood money to me,” Tierce said. So she dumped the money in her charity. “It felt like laundering the money in a good way,” she says. “He’s such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he’s evil incarnate in some ways.”

If you have absolutely no idea what Rush Limbaugh does, needless to say, he’s not a fan of abortions or contraceptives.
