Rush Limbaugh has said some truly harsh things in the past, but his rants over Caitlyn Jenner have been beyond brutal.
It’s hard to keep Rush Limbaugh’s jabs at the Olympian straight from one talk show to the next, but one rant may have gone too far.
This week, Rush Limbaugh held nothing back when he questioned how Caitlyn Jenner can become a woman if she hasn’t had her penis removed yet.
Needless to say, the nation is torn over Caitlyn Jenner’s reveal this week, but for the most part, the 65-year-old has received overwhelming support since debuting her look as a woman on June 1.
However, Rush Limbaugh is among the haters who can’t seem to help themselves in saying hurtful things.

As reported by Hollywood Life, Rush Limbaugh really laid into Caitlyn Jenner with specific questions about the surgeries she has had and whether or not she has had her male genitalia removed.
In the segment, Rush Limbaugh refers to a Nancy Grace interview with experts on the subject and the fact that no one knows for sure whether Caitlyn Jenner has had the complete gender reassignment surgery, or as he refers to it, her “bottom surgery.”
“How can you become a woman if you haven’t had the chopadickoffamy?!”

When one of Nancy Grace’s experts explains that a transgender man or woman is supposed to wait a full year before having the genital sugary done, he makes a mockery of the surgery.
“Why is it mandatory to live for a year before you have the ‘bottom surgery? Why would you have to wait a year? Is there some sort of psychological hormonal thing that you have to do to adjust? Or is it a commitment thing? You show people you’re really dead serious about this, so you have to do that for a year. What happens, by the way, if nine months in you fail? Maybe that’s why they wait. That would be point of no return. Maybe they wait to see if somebody’s really serious about this.”

Also this week, Rush Limbaugh quoted an unidentified professor from Johns Hopkins, who said that transgender people have a “mental illness,” as reported by The Blaze.
“We should not be celebrating this, we should not be lionizing this, we should not be encouraging this. These people have a very serious problem, and they need treatment. They need help, not encouragement.”
