Ashleigh Banfield to Rush Limbaugh: ‘Shut Your Cake Hole!’

On  CNN’s “Early Start” this morning, Ashleigh Banfield had some words for Rush Limbaugh: “Shut your cake hole!”

“You can agree or disagree on contraception. That’s not the issue. You cannot call women you disagree with sluts or prostitutes. I was called a slut by Michael Savage, a conservative radio talk show host,” said Banfield.

Banfield is referring to a 2003 incident when she was an MSNBC anchor and Savage hosted a short-lived MSNBC weekend show. On his radio show, Savage called Banfield, “The mind slut with a big pair of glasses that they sent to Afghanistan.”

“Michael Savage didn’t like giving the voice to some of the Arab instigators in the Middle East,” said Banfield this morning. “That made me a slut.”

Nine years later, Banfield asks, “What does it take? What year is this, Limbaugh? It ends now. Cut it out!”
