Tweety McTreason, who has not been seen by White House reporters for four days, held a “radio rally” with Rush Limbaugh on Friday, rambling on for nearly two hours as he answered softball questions and received heaps of praise from the right-wing radio host.
During the call, Trump attacked the Black Lives Matter, claiming it’s “a racist term” and “a very bad term for Blacks.”
In reference to Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump said “The Black community gets it. They don’t dig him.”
Trump also appeared to change his mind about a COVID-19 stimulus bill.
Just on Tuesday, Trump called off talks on another round of COVID-19 relief funding until after the election.
But he pulled a complete 180 on Friday, announcing talks with Democrats were back on.
“I am going on the exact opposite now,” Trump claimed. “I would like to see a bigger stimulus package than either Democrats or Republicans are offering.”
Trump went on to drop an explicit threat against Iran, insisting “if you f–k around with us … we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.”

Trump also claimed that there is a “cure” already available for Covid-19. “We have a cure. More than just a therapeutic, we have a cure.”
There is no cure for the coronavirus.
2 hours Trump spent on Rush Limbaugh’s show…and it ends with music playing over Trump talking.

AFTER TWO FULL HOURS CHATTING W RUSH LIMBAUGH, it is Limbaugh who finally tries to wrap Trump, saying: “I know you’ve got a jam-packed day left on your schedule…”
