Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said Friday that he would order flags to fly at half-staff in honor of conservative talk radio star Rush Limbaugh, who died this week at the age of 70 after being diagnosed with lung cancer.
“I know they’re still figuring out arrangements. But what we do when there’s things of this magnitude, once the date of internment for Rush is announced, we’re going to be lowering the flags to half-staff,” DeSantis said during a political event in Palm Beach County, where Limbaugh lived.
The governor made the announcement during an event to announce election reforms he would support. He kicked off the event by honoring Limbaugh.
Media Matters put together a clip of some of Limbaugh’s lies and attacks.
And some thoughts from some other folks.
