HUGH HEWITT (HOST): Joe Biden at a CNN town hall, cut number 19, calling Rush racist. Cut number 19:
JOE BIDEN: Rush Limbaugh spent his entire time on the air dividing people, belittling people, talking about how — talking about Blacks in ways, African-Americans in ways that — anyway, I do feel badly, and I mean it sincerely, that he's suffering from a terminal illness. So he has my empathy and sympathy no matter what his background is. But the idea that he is, at State of the Union, receives a medal that is of the highest honor that can be committed, given to a civilian, I find, quite frankly, driven more by trying to maintain your right-wing political credentials than it is anything else. I mean, if you read some of the things that Rush has said, about people, their backgrounds, their ethnicity, how he speaks to them, I don't think he speaks — I don't think he understands the American code, decency and honor. I just really — but look, this is Donald Trump.
HEWITT: I have to say, that's slanderous.
Rush Limbaugh has zero racism in him. And to attribute it to him is slander.
