Rush Limbaugh announced on his radio program today that he has been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. The radio show host expects that he will miss some shows because he will be either undergoing chemotherapy treatment or recovering.

Limbaugh is 69 years old. In 2003, he was investigated for illegally obtaining the prescription drugs oxycodone and hydrocodone. In 2006, he claimed that Michael J. Fox had “shamelessly” exaggerated the effects of Parkinson’s disease. In 2012, he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute” for advocating that insurance companies cover the costs of contraception. Politifact has rated 84% of his statements to be untrue or mostly untrue.

In years’ past, Rush Limbaugh has suggested that Michelle Obama is “uppity,” that she should get over slavery, that she should be thankful if someone whistles at her, and that she is “fat.” He lambasted Michelle Obama for suggesting that Donald Trump admitted to sexual assault on the Hollywood Access tape.

“If you go back to this audiotape, he said, ‘When you’re a celebrity, they let you do anything,’” Limbaugh said. “How can there can be assault if somebody’s granting permission? How can it be assault if they let you do anything?”

Limbaugh also once applauded Newt Gingrich for asking his wife — who had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis — for permission to cheat on her before he did so with his current wife, Calista.

Rush Limbaugh has no children. He is currently married to his fourth wife. Michael J. Fox has four children and has been married to the same woman, Tracy Pollan, since 1988.

This is how Twitter reacted to the news of Limbaugh’s diagnosis:
