Rush Limbaugh’s longtime producer said that it “burns” his soul that people have spread “falsehoods” about the late talk show host’s life and career in the days following Limbaugh’s death.
The conservative icon had been battling advanced lung cancer for more than a year and died Wednesday at the age of 70.
Producer James Golden, known by the pseudonym Bo Snerdly, gave an emotional message about his friend and coworker on “Hannity” Thursday night.
“It burns me to my soul when people sully his reputation with falsehoods, calling him a racist,” Snerdly said.
“This man was just an incredible phenomenon — and we love you, Rush.”
