"I think it's a moot point now," he said, according to The Blaze.


Limbaugh was confronted by a caller who told him it was time that the "all-knowing, all-seeing Rushbo, the omniscient one" endorse the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

"In the word of a famous and well-known politician: What difference does it make now?"

“He needs your endorsement. It’s that important. And it’s about time you did it," the caller responded.

"There's still anything that can happen out there," he said.

Limbaugh added that his endorsement doesn't matter now. He said he's never endorsed someone in a primary season.

"I don't live under any delusions here that people are going to make up their minds ... just because I happen to tell people who I'm for," Limbaugh said.
