Democrats are suffering so badly from Trump Derangement Syndrome that the top figure in their broken party is making fun of someone days after it was announced he had cancer.

Last Monday, legendary conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh announced that he has advanced-stage lung cancer.

Limbaugh attended President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address last Tuesday night and grew visibly emotional when the president honored him during the speech with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

In response, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez disgustingly accused Limbaugh of faking his reaction and mocked him for acting surprised.

“Rush Limbaugh is a virulent racist,” she said in an Instagram video.

“But even just on top of that, to do it in the middle of the State of the Union and not even dignify it with its own ceremony as it has, there are all sorts of norms that are being violated and not just for people’s humanity but also it truly just cheapens the value of it,” she added.

“Also, him pretending to be surprised was such a joke,” she continued.

“This has been news all day, there have been multiple reports from multiple outlets, saying that Rush Limbaugh was going to receive the Medal of Freedom, and then Trump announced it and he had to pretend like this was some kind of Oprah moment,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

The tweet below shows One America News host Jack Posobiec sharing a video clip of AOC mocking Limbaugh for being deaf and claiming he “did not know” he was receiving the award.

The top comment to Posobiec’s tweet is also worth noting, which shows how former President Barack Obama gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a slew of Hollywood left-wingers who did nothing to earn it.

Consider how sickening Ocasio-Cortez’s comments are.

First, she mocked Limbaugh, who has stage 4 lung cancer.

Then, she falsely claimed his reaction to being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom was “disingenuous.”

She then disgustingly said that Limbaugh, while having cancer, was a “joke,” needed an “Opera moment,” and said it was “nauseating” to see him get the medal.

As noted by the Washington Times, Limbaugh is practically deaf.

Back in 2014, Limbaugh told listeners that he recently underwent surgery for a cochlear implant.

Limbaugh explained that he needed the implant for hearing loss in his right ear. He already had one in his left ear, which he got 13 years ago and was advised to leave his right ear alone at the time.

“I’m not able to identify where a sound is coming from,” the radio host said Thursday, according to a transcript of the show. “If I’m in the studio alone and an alarm goes off, I have no idea what it is… Maybe that’ll be helped by this.”

Rush wasn’t “acting surprised,” he was trying to make sure he heard the president correctly that he was about to receive the Medal during an address with tens of millions of people watching on television.

And sadly, no one in the media will call on AOC to apologize for her sickening comments about Rush.
