Even though Limbaugh is not hosting his show today because of his ongoing cancer treatments, he gave a brief recorded message to his dittoheads that the rally would be taking place tomorrow.
“I’m thrilled to announce that our commander in chief, President Donald Trump will be right here tomorrow hosting the largest virtual rally in radio history. Be sure to tune in you don’t want to miss this. It will be special and I am really looking forward to it,” he said.
“So be thinking of things you might ask him today, and then get ready for the largest virtual rally in radio history tomorrow,” Limbaugh added. He noted that more details about the virtual rally would be put on his website later in the day.
Big League Politics has reported on Limbaugh’s diagnosis and how he is recovering from stage IV lung cancer:
Longtime conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh had a positive update to give his listeners on the treatment of his stage IV lung cancer on Friday, stating that his chemotherapy program is yielding positive results.
Rush was diagnosed with cancer in January. He returned to the airwaves Friday after taking several days off to focus on his medical treatment. He recounted his experience with experimental chemo treatment, stating that he had been prescribed drugs used for a clinical trial involving patients with his rare form of lung cancer.
Limbaugh stated that four weeks of the treatment regimen are going “great,” and that the experimental chemo program “is working.”
Rush is taking a temporary break from the clinical medication regimen, describing taking steroids to recover from the regimen’s side effects.
“I guess it got bad enough last Monday or whatever that we had to pull the treatment. We had to pull the treatment, and it was going to be just temporary for a week or two to see what would happen. I’m now taking drugs, steroids, to reverse the effects of the chemo drug.”
By no means do Rush’s comments infer that he will have an easy path to recovery, but certainly even the most measured of good news will come as a relief to the radio icon’s listeners.
