RADIO EQUALIZER: Did you get a lot of flak at the time for the Playboy interview? Similar to this? A question I’ve received: “why’s he helping lefty Hollywood types who hate us?”
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Yes, I did. And on other occasions I can’t recall. This is my third Family Guy but first as the star. Seth MacFarlane doesn’t hate me. Or Andrew Breitbart, who he met on Maher’s show and really liked…
Seth was among the FIRST to reach out to me in Hawaii when I had that heart scare. I am not helping the Hollywood Left. His show is going to be on the air regardless what I do.
BUT, the better way to look at this is that they bent for me. I did not bend to them. It’s not as though I endorse or support libs on this show. The other way around. A huge lib character becomes a conservative.
