Conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh passed away last year, but comedian Dana Gould opined on Thursday that Limbaugh's work "had no value."
"Thinking about Rush Limbaugh and how, now that he’s dead, you never, ever hear about him. No one mentions anything he did. Because what he did had no value. It contributed nothing worthwhile to the culture. Nothing of lasting value," Gould tweeted.
"He just made anger. Every day. Rising, blooming & fading like a fart. Then he died & was instantly replaced by a fleet of little replicas, farting fake fury five days a week. Creating nothing of interest or artistic value to anyone. Seriously, what an awful way to make a living," Gould continued in another tweet.

Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during then-President Trump's State of the Union address in 2020.
"And Rush, in recognition of all that you have done for our nation, the millions of people a day that you speak to and that you inspire, and all of the incredible work that you have done for charity, I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving our country's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom," Trump said.
Kayleigh McEnany and others pushed back against Gould's claims about the late talk radio host.
"This is gross. No matter what state I am in, a mention of Rush gets a huge applause. He inspired a generation of conservatives. Myself included. More importantly, Rush gave untold sums to charity, named one of the most philanthropic celebrities. Sad you devote time to this…" McEnany tweeted.
"Tell me you live in a liberal bubble without telling me," someone else tweeted.
"On the contrary, he is so fondly remembered by millions. How many will remember you @danagould?" someone else tweeted.
