Rush Limbaugh celebrated the 30th anniversary of his show this week and got a surprise phone call from President Trump congratulating him. It was a great moment!
Here’s a transcript from Rush Limbaugh’s site:
RUSH: So I have this note on the call screener computer: “On the hotline…” We don’t have a hotline. “On the hotline, you’re receiving a phone call in recognition of your anniversary broadcast. You’ll want to take this immediately.” Okay. So we’re going to the phones and we have a special guest. Who is it?
THE PRESIDENT: So, Rush, I just wanted to congratulate you on 30 years.
THE PRESIDENT: This is your favorite president, and I think you are fantastic.
THE PRESIDENT: I heard about it, and today’s the big day, 30 years. I wanted to call personally and congratulate you.
RUSH: I am floored. I… (laughing) I thought there was nothing anybody could do to surprise me today. I’ve been preparing for anything. Mr. President —
THE PRESIDENT: You’re a very special man, Rush, and you have people that love you. I’m one of them. But you’re a very, very special guy. What you do for this country, people have no idea how important your voice is. So I just wanted to personally make this one and I said, “I’ll even dial the number myself if I have to.”
