Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany remembered Rush Limbaugh, who passed away Wednesday, as someone who “exhibited unrelenting boldness to share the truth,” saying the United States is “better because of him.”

“He exhibited unrelenting boldness to share the truth, and our country is better because of him,” she said. “We lost our giant, but the movement he inspired will continue for generations to come.”

“I was – as they say – a ‘Rush Baby.’ As a high schooler,” she recalled, “I would drive my friends to school and force them all to listen to Rush!”
