Conservative talk-show icon Rush Limbaugh might not be for everybody, but everyone would agree that his terminal lung cancer prognosis is a fate wished upon nobody. Right? ,

Limbaugh, 69, delivered an emotional update to his audience Monday, sharing that his stage 4 lung cancer has been progressing in recent scans. He said he prays every morning that he will wake up the next day.

It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh said. “We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.”

Nobody could have anything but empathy for that, right? Hold my beer, fellow radio host Michael Savage said as the 78-year-old signed on to his Twitter account with 210,000 followers.

“Limbaugh’s crying about his cancer on air!” Savage tweeted. “Worst 15 minutes in radio history! Spilled a large coffee all over counter and floor. I PROMISE MY AUDIENCE THIS–I WILL NOT DRAG YOU DOWN WITH ME! Best wishes RUSH, but stop and leave the stage with dignity.”

Oh well, best wishes do make it all better.

Savage was taken down by Twitter savages for his cold-hearted take on Limbaugh, who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in February.

“Were you hacked or are you just awful?” tweeted Rita Panahi, a columnist for the Herald Sun in Melbourne, Australia.

Just awful, it seems.
