Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh says GOP primary front-runner Donald Trump is doing a “great service” by taking on the media and political correctness in his presidential campaign.

“Donald Trump is, I think, doing a great service,” Limbaugh said on “Fox News Sunday.” “He is showing that you do not have to fear attacks from media.”

“He’s showing you do not have to fear being politically correct or violating political correctness,” Limbaugh added.

The radio host also weighed in on other 2016 candidates. He said Ben Carson is “one of the most decent human beings in the country” but not equipped to be president “at this stage.”

“But any of these Republicans running would be better than Hillary [Clinton] or what we’ve got now,” Limbaugh said. “So based on that comparison, yes, I’d vote for him if it were up to him and Hillary.”

He praised Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as “brilliant” and “conservative through and through.”

“Trustworthy, strong, confident, leader and somebody in whom you can totally depend,” he added of the Texas senator.

Limbaugh said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign lacks passion and energy.

“I don’t think he really wants to do this,” he said. “I’m watching, and I just don’t see the passion, I don’t see fire, it’s as though people in his campaign want him to do it because they want to get back in power.”

“I just don’t see Jeb with all that energy that says I need this, the country needs me, I can’t wait to do this. I just don’t see any of that,” he added.
