Rush Limbaugh Taken To Hospital With Chest Pains

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh is “resting comfortably” after being admitted to a Honolulu hospital today.

ALERT (sent from to media after 1 a.m. EST): Rush was admitted to a Honolulu hospital today and is resting comfortably after suffering chest pains. Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes. He will keep you updated via and on Thursday’s radio program.

Limbaugh was admitted to a Queens Medical Center Wednesday afternoon in “serious” condition. CNN’s Ed Henry reported from Honolulu that Limbaugh, who was admitted with chest pains, was expected to remain in the hospital overnight.

Queens Medical Center is the hospital where President Obama was born.

Mother Jones Washington Editor David Corn reacted to Henry’s play-by-play of news regarding Limbaugh, writing, “Any other tweets coming in on Rush other than those from Ed Henry?” At another point, he appeared to be tweaking the CNN White House corresponent, asking,”Where’s Ed Henry? It’s been 15 minutes since he’s Twittered.”

Speak of the devil. In chimed Henry with another Limbaugh report.

Corn closed the evening off with this: “Signing off for the evening. Good luck, Ed Henry. Rush, you’ve slimed me in the past. But, I suppose, good luck to you, too.”

Read the story as reported on Honolulu’s ABC affiliate, KITV.
