Rush Limbaugh Makes Fun of Cenk Uygur’s Name

Today Rush Limbaugh, whose name is synonymous with the effect of shooting up drugs, thinks it’s within the bounds to make fun of our local media pioneer, Cenk Uygur with his equally weird name. “I don’t know what a Cenk Uygur is,” Limbaugh said this morning on his radio show. “I don’t know where a Cenk Uygur works.”

The host of The Young Turks, the largest online talk show in the world, and a regular host on MSNBC at 6pm ET for much of 2011, Cenk Uygur (pronounced JAY-nk YOU-ger), has this to say to FishbowlLA: “I know Rush Limbaugh is a little hard of hearing because of his struggles with Oxycontin, so I will help him pronounce the name tonight on my show at 6PM (on MSNBC.) I will also educate him on the fact behind global warming. He might want to turn up the TV real loud.”
