Bonehead Quote of the Week: Rush Limbaugh on Robin Williams

August 15, 2014


Of course Rush would be the guy to make even a beloved entertainer’s apparent suicide political.

After the tragic and sudden passing of Robin Williams, conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh spouted off on his show that Williams’ death, and the media coverage that followed, is a reflection of a “leftist worldview,” which he characterized as being “one of pessimism and darkness, sadness.”

“He had it all but he had nothing, made everybody else laugh but was miserable inside,” Limbaugh says of Williams. “It fits a certain picture or a certain image that the left has…low expectations, general unhappiness.”

What’s worse, Limbaugh also perpetuated a claim–made by an unnamed source in none other than a Fox News story–that Williams had “survivor’s guilt” after losing friends and fellow actors Christopher Reeves, John Belushi, and Andy Kaufman.

“He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn’t, ” Limbaugh presumes. “Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country.”

In response to Limbaugh, comedian Lewis Black says it best:

    Limbaugh’s words: “He had it all but he had nothing, made everybody else laugh but was
    miserable inside,” I suppose Limbaugh has forgotten his past problems with drugs. His own words applies to him except “made everybody else laugh”. In Limbaugh’s case, we laugh at his ignorance and stupidity, his self-serving agenda, and his own miserable life as an extreme right wing idiot. I won’t use Lewis Black’s words, but I will say I think the caption reading “Bonehead Quote of the Week: Rush Limbaugh on Robin Williams”, should read: Dickhead instead of Bonehead. He may think he’s a macho man, but he’s nothing but a limp dick!
