Citation From the February 13, 2020, episode of CNN's New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman

JOHN BERMAN (CO-ANCHOR): You know, Charlie, I do wonder what this feels like now that he has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom before the entire Congress, to hear comments like this from Rush Limbaugh.

CHARLIE BLACK (FORMER GOP PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN ADVISER): Well, it's too bad. I wish he had not said that. Unfortunately, we don't have a code of conduct or speech for former winners of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but as I said about President Trump and Roger Stone, Rush is not helping the president by making these kinds of totally tasteless comments.

DAVID AXELROD (CNN SENIOR POLITICAL COMMENTATOR): It does make you wonder what they think about Mayor Pete as an opponent because, you know, you can read it as, well, he's on their radar screen. And they're going after him. So, you know, that's, if I'm sitting over in Pete's headquarters, I'm sort of thinking, well, we're getting their attention.
