Rush Limbaugh Resting in Honolulu Hospital After Chest Pains


rush-limbaughThe following follows‘s first report here last night:  Rush Limbaugh, the conservative U.S. talk radio host, is “resting comfortably” in a Honolulu hospital after suffering chest pains, his program said in a statement.Limbaugh, whose show is heard on about 600 radio stations, was admitted to the hospital yesterday, as first reported here on He “appreciates your prayers and well wishes,” it said.

Paramedics took Limbaugh, 58, to Queen’s Medical Center after responding to a 2:41 p.m. call at the Kahala Hotel and Resort, the Honolulu-based television station KITV said on its Web site. He was sitting in a chair in his ninth-floor hotel room when emergency crews arrived and told them he was taking medication for a back problem, the station said.

A hospital spokeswoman declined to comment. Rachel Nelson, a spokeswoman for Clear Channel Communications Inc.’s Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates Limbaugh’s show, didn’t immediately respond to telephone and e-mailed requests for comment after business hours.

Limbaugh is visiting Honolulu during the holidays and was seen golfing at a country club next to the hotel earlier this week, according to the report. President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, are also staying in Hawaii, said.

Limbaugh received a cochlear implant in 2001 after losing his hearing due to autoimmune inner ear disease, according to the report.

In 2003, he checked into a treatment program, telling listeners he became addicted to pain medication after spinal surgery.

  1. Is Rush Limbaugh actually an oheiv Yisrael? Can anyone quote anything specifically he has said that shows that he loves Yidden? In my experience not liking blacks and not liking Hispanics also goes with not liking any other minorities – like us Jews, for instance. So I wonder.

    Can anyone supply actual quotes of positive things Rush Limbaugh has said about Jews – Orthodox or otherwise?

  2. Rush CONSTANTLY is defending Israel on his program. Nochom Segal took Rush on a VIP tour to Israel over 15 years ago (he was pro-Israel even before that), and Rush remains very good friends with Segal.

    Anyone who listened to Rush’s program for any decent length of time will know he is very friendly with Orthodox Judaism and speaks very favorably of it.

  3. To #11 I listen to RUSH. During the entire Bernie Madoff scandal, unlike any other talk show host, Rush did not once mention even in a agavdiker way tha Bernie was a Jew.
    On the contrary he defended
    the Yidden and said that he stole the most from his own… Additionally he is a tenatious staunch supporter of the Yidden in Eretz Yisroel. He does more for us, when over 20,000,000 people a week hear this guy defend the Yidden over and over again. Rush is our friend and I as a Yeshiva man pray for his speedy recovery. Get well friend!
