The news: Thanks to a genius former waitress, Rush Limbaugh indirectly donated to an abortion rights group.
According to a story relayed to the Dallas Morning News, author Merritt Tierce waited on the conservative talk show host twice while working as a server at a high-end steakhouse. Both times, Limbaugh left Tierce massive tips — $2,000 on significantly smaller checks. As fate would have it, Tierce was also serving as the executive director of the TEA Fund, which helps fund abortions for women who can't afford them.
Her brilliant form of protest? Donating a portion of Limbaugh's tips to the organization.
"It felt like laundering the money in a good way," Tierce told the Dallas Morning News. "He's such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he's evil incarnate in some ways."
It's simple but perfect. Limbaugh has a history of misogynistic, hateful comments about both women and abortion rights, so it's the height of irony (and some A+ trolling) that Tierce shuffled his wealth to fund the thing he hates the most.
"That was like blood money to me," she said of the tips.
Hope you enjoy the knowledge that your hard-earned cash went to fund women becoming "abortion machines," Rush.
