Is this lady trying to corner the market on stupid political tweets since Trump is gone?
But, no. I could be wrong, but most of what I've found on the half staff flags is really flown at half mast for private citizens. If there are cases I don't remember that's fine, but it is more the exception than the rule. But even then, the person would have to do something to help their fellow people and live a life that would make them an object of national mourning. Rush Limbaugh did not and was not.
While he certainly had a massive audience and helped shape national politics for decades, it wasn't for the better. He was part of the reason for the current political landscape. A hellscape where things are particularly divisive, insulting the opposition is a matter of course, facts are optional at best and discouraged at worst, where changing your opinion based on facts is a sign of weakness, and where the other side is just evil. He's a main reason for the decline of journalism and rise of opinionated morons on TV and radio who people treat like news. He was a cancer on America, it's fitting cancer took him out.
