Milwaukee School Teacher Says ‘It’s Awesome’ Rush Limbaugh Is Dying — Gets Suspended Immediately



A Milwaukee high school teacher was placed on leave Wednesday after expressing his desire that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh die a painful death from cancer.

The Milwaukee High School of the Arts teacher was identified as Travis Sarandos, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

“limbaugh absolutely should have to suffer from cancer. it’s awesome that he’s dying, and hopefully it is as quick as it is painful,” Sarandos wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

Limbaugh announced to his audience on Monday that he has advanced lung cancer and will miss time away from his show for treatment.

Milwaukee Public Schools confirmed in an email to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Sarandos had been placed on leave pending an investigation.

It also said Sarandos was not speaking on behalf of the district or staff when he made the remarks about Limbaugh.

A number of liberal commentators responded to Rush Limbaugh’s announcement that he has advanced lung cancer by calling him a bigot and wishing for his death or worse.

Conservatives on Twitter reacted to Limbaugh’s revelation with an outpouring of support.

President Donald Trump called Limbaugh a “great & fantastic political talent.”

“There is nobody like him,” he said. “Looking for a speedy recovery for our friend!”
