In the wake of Robin Williams’ death, Rush Limbaugh had a scorching hot take as to why the beloved comedian killed himself. The video is below if you want to subject yourself to it, but the gist of it was that Limbaugh thinks Williams may have taken his own life because of his leftist world views saying, “If you had to attach, not a philosophy, but an attitude to a leftist worldview. It’s one of pessimism, and darkness, sadness. They’re never happy, are they?…He had it all, but he had nothing. Made everybody else laugh, but was miserable inside. It fits a certain picture or a certain image that the left has.”
Lewis Black, a friend of Williams and a very ornery man in general, fired back at Limbaugh. And I’m sure if The Daily Show wasn’t on break this week, he’d have let out his rage on that stage. I actually hope that goes down on Monday. So, Jon Stewart, if you’re reading this — I know you are, you Bro-loving SOB — make it happen.
