Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said President Trump advised him to “never apologize” for his comments on Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s sexuality.

Limbaugh said on his Monday show that Trump called him to talk about his comments last week that “America’s still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage.” His remarks sparked outrage from some Democrats and prompted Buttigieg to respond on CNN Sunday that he doesn’t need lectures on family values from Limbaugh.

The article goes on to state the following:

The popular host, who revealed earlier this month he had advanced stage lung cancer, responded to Buttigieg on Monday by saying he “didn’t lecture him on family values” and sharing his conversation with the president on the matter.

Limbaugh said, the president called him and said, ” ‘Rush, I just got to tell you something. Never apologize. Don’t ever apologize.’ ”

Limbaugh said he had “no idea this thing had even bubbled up,” because he was busy “doing the medical thing.”

“I wasn’t even aware of this,” he said, referring to the uproar over his comments.

Limbaugh believes the adverse reaction is due to the fact that he’s raising awareness about Buttigieg’s sexuality.

“I think they think that there’s a lot of people that don’t know he’s gay and that I sort of dropped the dime on it and let people who otherwise didn’t know that Mayor Pete is gay,” he said.
