The sports story Limbaugh mentioned on his Friday show was about an NBA photographer who was removed from playoff coverage after posting a fake campaign button for the Biden/Harris presidential ticket that reads “Joe and the Hoe.”
The American Spectator story Limbaugh promoted was considerably more to the point, calling Harris a “mattress” and alleging “she slept her way up,” according to the radio pundit. He also noted that the story called the 55-year-old senator an escort.
“Some people read this story ’mattress’ (and wonder), didn’t he mean ‘mistress,’” Limbaugh said. “No. I think they meant ‘mattress’ here.”
Limbaugh repeatedly refers to Harris’ relationship with Brown as “an affair.” Though Brown was technically married when he and Harris dated, the Democratic powerhouse had been separated from his wife for more than a decade at the time, according to fact-checking resource Snopes.
