CONSERVATIVE radio icon Rush Limbaugh’s final Facebook post before he died on Wednesday criticized President Joe Biden, even as he was unsure he would survive that day.
Limbaugh, who was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer in February 2020, wrote his last Facebook post on February 2, hours after hosting his last radio show.

In the post, Limbaugh wrote: “Biden canceled ‘a major foreign policy speech,’ folks, over two inches of snow. I kid you not.”
He linked to a story on his website titled, “Biden Sees His Shadow, Cancels Major Speech.”
Limbaugh noted that Biden called off a trip to the State Department to deliver his first major policy speech, citing two inches of snow in Washington, D.C.
“I don’t know, maybe Biden saw his shadow. What is this?” he wrote.

“Two inches of snow is gonna shut down Biden? Biden’s gonna put a lid on it for that?”
At the end of his radio broadcast earlier that day, Limbaugh had admitted he had another host on standby in case he could do or complete his show due to his deteriorating health.
“Well, my friends, that’s it. Yet another excursion into broadcast excellence in the can. Enjoyed being with you today, always do. And look forward to the next time,” Limbaugh said.
“Thanks to Mark Steyn who has been in standby mode all day. Wasn’t sure I was going to be able to go today and then each hour I had to assess. But we made it. Thank you Mr Steyn. See you all next time.”

There was not another radio show or Facebook post for Limbaugh.
On Wednesday, Limbaugh’s wife Kathryn announced his death on his radio show.
“I know that I am most certainly not the Limbaugh that you tuned in to listen to today. I, like you, very much wish Rush was behind this golden microphone right now, welcoming you to another exceptional three hours of broadcasting,” she said.
“It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer.”

Limbaugh’s radio show was nationally syndicated 1988 and he captivated listeners for more than three decades with his unforgivingly conservative views.
After announcing his death, Limbaugh’s family shared a new post on Facebook with two black-and-white images.
One image showed Limbaugh flashing a thumbs up wearing the Medal of Freedom that then-President Donald Trump awarded to him days after he revealed his diagnosis, along with the words, “The greatest of all time.”
The other image was a quote from his wife, stating that Limbaugh “will forever be the greatest of all time, a courageous, brilliant gentle giant and radio pioneer.”
“Our entire family is so thankful to everyone who prayed and cared for Rush, especially the audience he adored,” her statement reads.
“Rush’s love for our country, and for all of you, will live on eternally.”
