Joe Biden’s White House is yet to release an official statement recognizing radio legend Rush Limbaugh after his death.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed she had no idea if the Biden administration would recognize Limbaugh when asked at a press conference. Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, announced that he had died on Wednesday morning, following a battle with lung cancer.
Jen Psaki on Biden’s “I’m not sure if we’ll release a statement from the president … certainly his condolences go out to the family and the friends of Rush Limbaugh who have, of course, lost him today.”

It’s typical for Presidents to release statements mourning the deaths of those who win the Presidential Medal of Freedom after they die. President Trump released statements of mourning for the deaths of left-wing honorees who bitterly opposed him politically, including Georgia Congressman John Lewis. It appears President Biden doesn’t believe figures associated with Middle America are befitting of a Presidential statement at the hour of their deaths.
Limbaugh hosted the most-listened to radio broadcast in the history of the United States for decades. One might think that an American who listened to by tens of millions of people and pioneered the medium might attract the most humble expression of presidential mourning, but apparently politics are everything for the Biden administration.
The flag at the White House also isn’t flying at half staff to mourn the death of Limbaugh, although that practice is more rare and not usually implemented after the death of a Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree.
President Trump already phoned into Fox for an interview commemorating the life of Limbaugh. He’s slated to appear on OANN and Newsmax this evening to discuss his friendship with the radio and broadcasting legend.

POLITICAL HIT? Pro-Trump Portland, Oregon Print Shop Owner Gunned Down in Parking Lot
The shooting of a Portland man is colored with political connotations.
A Portland man who operated a print shop was shot and killed in the parking lot of a nightclub on Saturday, with police thus far unable to apprehend a suspect or establish a motive. 40-year old William Peters was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Acropolis bar, with a friend of his, Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide, also being shot and killed in a double homicide.
Peters was senselessly murdered on his four-year old daughter’s birthday. He also leaves behind a fiancée. Reports sourced from purported friends of Peters indicate that the 503print owner was leaving the club uneventfully when a vehicle pulled up in front of the parking spot his truck was in. After an exchange of words, Peters, and Arrambide were shot.
Big League Politics has learned that Peters previously made himself a target of ANTIFA intimidation for printing pro-Donald Trump banners and imagery at his print shop. The father also personally supported Donald Trump, a bold move in the notoriously left-wing and bigoted Oregon city.
On a Portland Reddit page, left-wing haters celebrated the family man’s death, claiming the shooting was deserved because of Peters’ support for Trump. Other users on the forum confirmed that the small businessman was known as a Trump supporter, potentially making it onto the Stasi-style ‘lists’ that the extremist group has compiled of conservatives in Multnomah County.
Portland ANTIFA has proven more than willing to target businesses that stand in the way of their own political power, especially in the city’s downtown area. In the wake of Peters’ seemingly random homicide, it’s difficult to ignore the political implications of the targeted assassination. Anyone with information on the disturbing double homicide is being asked to step forward and contact Det. Scott Broughton at Scott.Broughton@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-3774 or Det. Eric McDaniel at Eric.McDaniel@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0833.
A GoFundMe raising money for Peters’ funeral expenses has already received more than $8,500 in contributions from mourners.
