Video: Rush Limbaugh Faces Backlash From Advertisers, Republicans

| by Michael Allen

After repeatedly attacking law school student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh is facing backlash from his advertisers.

Mattress retailer Sleep Train announced on Friday that it would be pulling all advertisements from the program after outrage on Twitter by angry customers.

More of Limbaugh's sponsors such as ProFlowers, eHarmony, and several other companies have also been fielding complaints as well.

Limbaugh is also facing rebuke from fellow Republicans.

GOP House Speaker John Boehner has called the Limbaugh's statements "inappropriate."

Carly Fiorina, the former HP CEO who serves as Vice-Chairwoman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, condemned the radio host on CBS this morning (video below).

Fiorina said: “That language is insulting, in my opinion. It’s incendiary and most of all, it’s a distraction. It’s a distraction from what are very real and important issues."
