Another day, another beef. This time, the contenders are Rush Limbaugh and Don Lemon.
The feud between the talk show hosts is one of many stemming from Donald Sterling’s racist comments. While addressing the Sterling situation on Monday, Limbaugh mentioned how the things said by the LA Clippers’ owner were causing him problems in light of the fact that he “did not give enough money to Obama.”
From there, it was on as Lemon reacted to Limbaugh by telling his fellow CNN commentator Erin Burnett, “If we didn’t know then, that Rush Limbaugh is a stunt king, then we know now.”
The back and forth continued Tuesday as Limbaugh weighed in while firing a shot at CNN and Lemon’s sexuality.
“Over at CNN, they interpreted that to mean that I was defending Sterling!” the conservative firebrand said. “How did they get there? I don’t know how they get there. Erin Burnett played the sound bite and then went to Mr. Black Hole himself, Don Lemon (who sleeps with men, proudly) for comment.”
Lemon wasn’t the only one to catch it from Limbaugh, who blasted media watchdog Media Matters for not picking up on the fact that he was making a joke.
“These people have no sense of humor, particularly when it comes to Obama,” Limbaugh stated while giving his theory on why Sterling has landed on a lot of people’s bad side. “They have no sense of humor whatsoever. Everybody listening to this program knew I was making a joke (and a quite good one, by the way, if I say so myself) that if Sterling had just given a little bit more to Obama, everything would be okay.”
Limbaugh then shifted back to Lemon as he started mocking the CNN commentator’s infamous question about whether it really is “preposterous” to think the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 plane flew into a black hole.
“You have a story like Sterling and all these people go on TV,” Limbaugh said, “and they try to out do each other being the most offended, the most outraged, the most hurt, the most harmed, the most sensitive, the most in touch and so forth… Crackpots everywhere!”
