The White House is firing back against Rush Limbaugh's Haiti comments. The radio host advised listeners not to donate to a Haiti relief fund set up by the White House. Limbaugh suggested that people don't need to donate because they already have through income taxes, and that the money probably wouldn't go to help the people of Haiti any way. The most that would happen, he suggested, is that donators would end up on an Obama campaign mailing list.
Today, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is responding, saying Limbaugh's comments are "really stupid."
Limbaugh insists that people should still donate, but go through private channels like the Red Cross.
For his part, Gibbs says it's unfortunate Limbaugh would convince people, through whatever means, not to donate to people in need.
