Rush Limbaugh took to the airways immediately after Rep. Anthony Weiner issued his formal resignation and apology on live TV this afternoon, with the radio talker saying disparagingly, “It was a total tone-deaf apology.”

Rush Limbaugh, Anthony WeinerExplaining why he didn’t feel much sympathy for the former Democratic New York representative, Limbaugh said, “Anthony Weiner was a vicious, mean-spirited man, who lost his temper routinely on the floor of the House of Representatives. He was an intolerant individual.

“This has got to be, for someone with his ego, a profoundly humiliating experience.”

Limbaugh said he felt as if, “We are all in the bathroom in junior high, adding, “It’s time to climb out of the gutter now.

Limbaugh said Weiner’s demeanor and choice of words came across as “a campaign speech for his next stab at elective office, whenever it is that he takes it.

“I’m sure he’s already planning the Anthony Weiner Comeback Kid routine,” Limbaugh said.
