Jon Stewart donned a hazmat suit on Monday to protect himself from the bile that Rush Limbaugh has been spewing lately. “What is even going through Rush Limbaugh’s fevered mind?” Stewart asked.
For the uninitiated, the right-wing radio host recently called Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke — who testified before a House contraception hearing — a “slut” and a “prostitute.” Limbagh received widespread condemnation from politicians and political candidates, and more than a dozen companies have dropped their advertisements from the show. Rush on Saturday apologized to Fluke.
“Personally, I don’t get too worked up about the things Rush Limbaugh says,” Stewart said. “He is and has been for many years been a terrible person.”
