The President of the United States said this today, ostensibly about Iran, but it clearly applies to anyone who dares cross the Very Stable Genius, as it came less than 24 hours after a loose-knit terrorist cell of his supporters was arrested for plotting to kidnap the governor of Michigan (because she criticized the president) and start a race war, in addition to taking the governor to a secret location for a "trial". The group spied on the governor's vacation home for the last two months and been building explosive devices.

Trump was on Fox News for two hours on Thursday, then followed that up on Friday by doing a lengthy interview with Rush Limbaugh and then another appearance on Tucker Carlson's show. If I didn't know better, I'd think all he does all day is right-wing PR.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) October 9, 2020
Rush Limbaugh begins this "radio rally" by playing Trump's walk-up music and then a tape of crowd noise of people chanting "we love you."— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020

Trump starts by saying he "jumped" on the invite to do this rally because Rush's audience is so large.— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020
Then he falsely claims on COVID-19:
"We have a cure. More than just a therapeutic. We have a cure."
Blames "fake news" for mischaracterizing everything.

"My voice is now perfect," Trump says, explaining his raspy voice in recent interviews.— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020
"It's called a lingering thing."

As Trump goes on about Biden being "in a daze," Rush notes he did make it through the debate -- and sorta blames Trump for helping him!
Rush: "You did kind of bail him out... He couldn't answer and you kept talking at him!"
"I have to beat that off," Trump says of investigations in NY.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) October 9, 2020
Into hour two or media criticism and we have a @maggieNYT name-check, just so we're all aware who continues to live rent-free in the president's head.— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020
Rush concurs, says "there wasn't a word of truth" in any of the stories published the first two years of the Trump presidency.

Trump: "I watch it..." Trump says, going through the Fox anchors -- and making clear, as if his daily schedule didn't already, that he spends most of his day watching TV.— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020
Rush: "You are a TV expert."
Here's the fuller Trump quote:— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020

"My people tend to -- and they're all my people -- but Republicans..." tend to vote in person.— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) October 9, 2020
Rush says Democrats need "a little yellow bus picking 'em up, taking 'em to the polls."
Trump: "Right, right."
Dr. Marc Siegel, the sycophant interviewing Trump in this legendary clip 👇 is the guy doing Trump's live on TV physical evaluation tonight, so I fully expect he'll conclude that Trump is so healthy he could start at running back for the New York Giants this weekend https://t.co/wbovntneT1— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) October 9, 2020
I don't think at this point there is any reason to give face value credence to the White House or president's doctors' pronouncements about either the timeline of his illness or his current status.— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) October 9, 2020
