In the aftermath of Rush Limbaugh's controversial comments regarding Sandra Fluke, on Friday Piers Morgan offered his thoughts on the conservative political commentator:
"Rush Limbaugh has been shocking America for decades with his right-wing rhetoric. He prides himself on being outrageous, and that's fine – it's a free country," said the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "But when that desire to offend strays into calling smart, young, responsible female students 'sluts' and 'prostitutes,' I have a big problem Mr. Limbaugh."
Noting Limbaugh's lost advertisers since the incident, Morgan agreed with President Obama's spokesperson who called the diatribe "reprehensible," but added his own sentiment:
"Limbaugh's disgusting comments are the work of an archaic old dinosaur living in a warped ugly swamp, who thinks it's okay to degrade decent young women, for sport, and ratings."
In the words of Morgan, Only in America: "Shame on you, Rush Limbaugh. You owe Miss Fluke a heartfelt, groveling apology. And I suggest you do it now."
