(Tea Party 247) – The Joe Biden White House has yet to issue a statement on the death of radio legend Rush Limbaugh, a move which is unprecedented for a figure of Rush’s magnitude.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki gave a borderline sarcastic reply when asked by the press if such a statement could be expected from President Joe Biden.
Typically, when any major public figure dies, the President of the United States issues a statement offering condolences and commenting on the individual’s mark on our country.
President Donald Trump was always quick to offer respectful and heartfelt condolences, even when some of his top political opponents passed away, such as Georgia Congressman John Lewis and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Jen Psaki on Biden’s “I’m not sure if we’ll release a statement from the president … certainly his condolences go out to the family and the friends of Rush Limbaugh who have, of course, lost him today.”

Limbaugh, Big League Politics notes, is the most-listened to radio host in the United States. He’s a hall of famer and a record-breaker.
Certainly, President Biden will have disagreed with Limbaugh, as President Trump disagreed with Lewis.
But only the most bitter and low-class of leaders would refuse to issue a statement when such a well-loved, pioneering, great, and patriot American loses his battle with advanced cancer.
