Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio program, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh discussed Breitbart News’s report exposing racist and antisemitic tweets by New York Times politics editor Tom Wright-Piersanti.

In the wake of blowback from the report, Wright-Piersanti has mass-deleted the racially charged tweets, which targeted Jews, Asians, Indians, and other minority groups, and apologized for their “offensive” content. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham condemned the Times editor’s bigoted comments, telling Breitbart News that she is “disgusted” by the racism displayed. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is Jewish, has called on the journalist to be fired from his post of five years.
