While hosting a live radio rally on Rush Limbaugh’s national radio show, President Donald Trump took time to harshly criticize congressional Republicans for failing to secure a COVID-19 stimulus package, Attorney General Bill Barr for failing to prosecute the criminal Democrats responsible for the Russia hoax, and Fox News for abandoning their conservative values.
President Trump, while confined to the White House due to his positive COVID-19 test results, agreed to host a campaign rally via Rush Limbaugh’s widely popular conservative radio show. Unlike his typical rallies, President Trump was urged by Limbaugh to criticize fellow Republicans on a series of issues that have frustrated the Republican base.
On the Russia hoax, President Trump blasted Barr and Republicans saying “they don’t play the tough game” and the current state of the justice system “is a disgrace.”
“I would like to see a bigger stimulus package than Republicans or Democrats are offering,” said President Trump “I would like to see a bigger package, I would like to see more money going to people.”
“It was not their fault,” said President Trump. “It was not their fault that China sent them the plague.”
After Limbaugh read from an Axios report suggesting Barr and Durham will not have a completed report ready before the election, President Trump said “If Bill Barr actually made that statement I would be very disappointed in him.”
On Fox News, President Trump said the network is maybe half of what it was four years ago, and cited the departure of prominent Fox News executives and hire of Paul Ryan.
“Fox is a whole different ball game,” said President Trump. “It’s a problem. Fox is a problem. I think it’s influenced by Paul Ryan. He’s on the board.”
When speaking of Black Lives Matter, the president invoked the famous viral footage of activists shouting “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” referring to police officers.
“What is Black Lives Matter? Pigs in a blank fry ’em like bacon,” said President Trump. “It’s a very racist term… It’s a very bad thing for blacks.”
“Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon, who were they referring to? New York police,” said President Trump.
