(JustPatriots.com)- Popular Fox News anchor Sean Hannity paid tribute to the late Rush Limbaugh last week, marking one year since he passed away. Limbaugh, the most popular conservative radio host in the country, died on February 17, 2021.
“I can’t believe it’s been a year,” Hannity told Fox News Digital.
He added that Rush had a “great gift” and always offered a unique take on the issues of the day.
“I can’t tell you how many times he would say something and I’d be like, ‘why wouldn’t I think like that?’” he added.
Hannity also referred to Limbaugh as the “GOAT” – which means ‘greatest of all time.”
Limbaugh revealed in January of 2020 that he had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. He admitted that his chances didn’t look good but continued to fight until the bitter end, going through several rounds of cancer treatment in hope of beating the disease.
Days after Limbaugh revealed his diagnosis he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump during his State of the Union address, a decision that angered Democrats.
Hannity noted that Rush’s bucket list “was to do what he did every day” and to be behind the microphone and talking to his audience.
That’s why he went through the treatments, Hannity said, arguing that Limbaugh hoped to spend as much time as he could on the air talking to his listeners in between treatments.
Barely more than a year after receiving the award from President Trump, Limbaugh lost his battle with cancer and was memorialized by every conservative news station and media outlet in the country…and of course, some sick Democrats celebrated.
