Nationally syndicated talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance on Tuesday's edition of Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream. Bream asked Limbaugh to weigh in on the media's coverage of President George H.W. Bush in the wake of his death last week. Limbaugh described their "fawning and talking about how he was so great" as "phony," adding "they never treated him this way when he was President, they were vicious to him, like they are vicious and partisan to every Republican." Limbaugh argued that the media's "sudden respect" for Bush is "just a vehicle for them" to "be able to contrast what they think Trump is versus the way they are telling us Bush was." Limbaugh said that although "what they're saying about him now is true," referring to his "class," "dignity," and "sophistication," "they never reported on him this way when he was President."
