Trump, Pence floated as possible replacements for Rush Limbaugh

Let’s get one thing out of the way – Rush Limbaugh is irreplaceable. But someone will have to try.

And many people think that either former President Trump or former vice president Mike Pence might be the perfect replacement for Rush. 

The Washington Times reports:

More than one media analyst has wondered if former President Donald Trump could replace the late Rush Limbaugh on talk radio.

….Another analyst also wonders about the situation — including the possibility that former Vice President Mike Pence could be in the running.

“To be fair, no one can truly replace Rush Limbaugh, can they?” wrote Tom Jones, a senior writer for the Poynter Institute, a media think tank and academic source based in Florida. “He was beloved by his listeners. Not just anyone can be thrown into that spot and have the same following, loyalty and — what matters most — ratings as Limbaugh. The first name to jump out is a strong conservative who is beloved by the right and is currently out of work: Donald Trump.

“While Trump‘s name might be fun for the rumor mill, it seems highly unlikely that Trump would want that gig,” Mr. Jones wrote.

Trump himself appeared to pour cold water on the idea, according to Breitbart, saying that Rush was “irreplaceable.”

A more natural choice would be former vice-president Mike Pence, who is a former radio host. But Pence is on the outs with many Trump fans and it’s hard to see him getting the position.

So who else could do the job? Let me know your ideas in the comments.

    1. Levine is already doing a 3-hour daily show. I think another Mark, Steyn should be given the chance. Unless, of course, Kathryn Limba, on Monday, knocks our socks off!

    2. That’s a great idea. Mark Levine is not only extremely intelligent, but he has a phenomenal personality to fill that time slot.

  1. I have always liked Michael Savage equally to Levin and Steyn, maybe more because he broadcasts from San Francisco. Pretty brave, right? Anyway, don’t count out any of the best hosts following Rush. I believe we’ll be happy with the final selection, unless we’re not!

  2. I would say Mark Levin, Mark Steyn or James Golden (AKA Bo Snerdley and based on FOX interview…great speaker and who better to carry on Rush philosophy?)

  3. “The Rush Man” will be one hard ticket to replace, but my vote goes for Mark Steyn, then Todd Herman and just had’t thought about Bo Snerdley( AKA James Golden) but what better person to sit in, for Rush than his counterpart ” Bo” Mr. Golden behind the” Golden EIV Mike”.

  4. Not Pence he’s the one that gave the election to King Biden. He is the exact opposite of Rush. And like everyone says Rush is someone who can’t be replaced. If anyone should have the gig I think it should be Greg Kelly of Newsmax.

  5. Pence is out. He’s a traitor.
    I don’t know who should sit in Rush’s chair. I’m still trying to cope with losing him.
    I’d love to see Trump take over but I don’t believe he’d want to do it. Mark Levin is an option along with those who substituted for him.

  6. let BO Snerdly build a team of the guest host that have filled in over the years Mark Stien,Ken Mathews ect.ect. ect……………… including Mark Levine Bo knows who MA HA Rushie would approve to get behind the Golden EIB Microphone for sure!!!!

  7. I have a couple of thoughts on that. Mark Levin , Ken Matthews, Sean Hannity, Mark Stein, Jessie Watters or Tucker Carlson.
