Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh made a rare live appearance on FOX News Tuesday morning, appearing in a segment on Fox & Friends as many Americans head to the polls to vote in the 2020 presidential election.

Limbaugh joined hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade to encourage people to go vote, as well as to talk about the election, Limbaugh’s outlook for America if Joe Biden wins and the Democrats take control of the House and Senate, and Limbaugh’s friendship with President Donald Trump.

“This is the day we are going to determine what kind of country we have going forward,” Limbaugh said of Election Day 2020. “I don’t want there to be any doubt about this.”

When asked what a victory for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and congressional Democrats would mean for the nation, Limbaugh painted a grim picture.

“We’ve reached a point in America wehre the American left doesn’t like this country, they haven’t liked it for a long time,” he said. “If they have the chance, they’ll rip the constitution to shreds as best they can and rewrite it. They’ll make government and government power the centerpiece of American life, and the American people are not going to know what hit them.”

Limbaugh was asked about his friendship with the president, and Limbaugh talked about how nice President Trump is, saying that he was the kind of guy you’d love to sit down and have a beer with “Even though he doesn’t drink.”

Limbaugh also talked about his battle with Stage 4 cancer, which he recently revealed on his radio show had spread.

“I have had a very, very good fortune with the course of treatment that I’ve had, and I’m just thrilled to be here,” he said. “I wake up every day and just thank God.”

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN in October; now, over a month later, the cable news channel is asking a judge in Florida to toss the case (h/t The Hill).

Trump filed the lawsuit against CNN because he accuses the network of defaming his character during the 2020 Presidential Election. Trump’s attorneys argued CNN “has sought to use its massive influence — purportedly as a ‘trusted’ news source.”

Additionally, Trump’s lawyer says that CNN attempted “to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for ‘[getting] Trump out’ in the 2020 presidential election.”

CNN lawyers have pushed back against Trump’s claims saying that the former president “seeks to silence any criticism of Plaintiff’s debunked claim that the 2020 presidential election was ‘stolen.’”

“Any alleged association resulting therefrom are also ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ and ‘pure opinion’ under well-established principles of defamation law,” CNN’s lawyers added.

Rumors have swirled over Fox and News Corp. possibly merging into one entity, but Irenic Capital, which owns about 2% of News Corp., has taken issue with its potential merger.

A merger would produce a more complicated company and turn off investors rather than increase the company’s lagging stock price, Irenic Capital stated in a letter to the News Corp. board.

“And even if such synergies do exist today, they would principally benefit Fox and reside in the News Media segment of News Corp,” Irenic Capital said (h/t Deadline). “For example, Fox Business may benefit from greater integration with The Wall Street Journal and some of Dow Jones’ other properties, but it is highly debatable whether the benefits from such an association flow both ways.

“Combining News Corp with Fox will result in a combined company that is obviously more complex than both companies left separate.” 

Irenic believes a unification would aid Fox far better than News Corp. and cautioned that the board has a fiduciary responsibility to investigate all possible routes to develop value beyond the one suggested by its primary shareholder.

Fox News held its annual All-American Tree Lighting at FOX Square in New York, New York Monday during “The Five.” The event was hosted by Greg Gutfeld, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Dana Perino, Jessica Tarlov and Jesse Watters

In a release, the network said it partnered with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to host a toy drive benefiting New York City’s youth. The network also honored first responders by selecting representatives of the FDNY and NYPD to light this year’s tree.

Guests included FOX News personalities and their families along with first responders from the NYPD and FDNY, including members of NYPD Precinct 32, who lost Wilbert Mora and Jason Rivera this year, and members of EMS Station 49, who lost EMS captain Alison Russo earlier this year.

FOX’s All-American Christmas tree stands at 50 feet tall and is adorned by 12,000 ornaments and 340,000 lights. The tree has 500 branches, a star topper that is over six feet tall and more than four miles of cord wrapped throughout.  Made in America, the tree features a patriotic theme of red, white, and blue decorations.

“After a busy year in America, it’s nice to, let’s just take a step back and celebrate traditions like this and remember how important it is to come together and focus on what truly matters,” said co-host Dana Perino. “This tree is not just for us to enjoy. We want you watching at home to be able to come here and make Christmas memories with your family and friends and of course, your pets, too, of course, as you can imagine.”
