Rush Limbaugh is no fan of Pope Francis, so it was expected he'd have something to say about the Pope's recent remarks on Donald Trump's Christian faith, or lack thereof.

He did not disappoint.

"The Pope says that Donald Trump is not a Christian, because Christians do not build walls, they build bridges. Never mind that the Vatican is surrounded by a wall and we won't even talk about who built that wall. But that's what the pope said," Limbaugh ranted.

He added a slam on Bernie Sanders when he said, "Given the pope's political leanings I'm surprised he isn't on the campaign trail for Bernie Sanders. But maybe Bernie Sanders is too far to the right for the pope."

I'm pretty sure Pope Francis would make the same indictment of Rush Limbaugh that he did of Donald Trump, if anyone asked him. This would surely hurt El Rushbo's feelings even more, since Limbaugh considers himself the sole reason Pope Francis was named Person of the Year in 2013.

Not only is Rush furious over the Pope's denunciation of Donald Trump, he's also apoplectic over the Pope's agreement that birth control should be used to control the Zika virus.

Awww. Poor Rush. I hope for his sake the Pope doesn't say much more, or his blood pressure will be in the danger zone. Code red.
