Donald Trump said he was in “not great shape” after he was diagnosed with COVID-19, the president said in a rambling appearance on Rush Limbaugh’s conservative radio show.

In the fawning interview, which is still going, Trump said he was “cured” by an antibody cocktail, an experimental therapeutic for treating patients with Covid-19 that is still undergoing testing and is not FDA approved.

“I recovered immediately, almost immediately,” he said, adding that he is no longer taking anything. “I’m not taking anything. I’m off any regimen that they gave me.”

Trump said he believed Democrats were rushing to pass this legislation in case Joe Biden wins the election, so they could remove him and install his running mate, Kamala Harris.

CSPAN says that Steve Scully, the next debate moderator, “believes his account has been hacked” and didn’t send this tweet to @Scaramucci

Since Steve Scully claims he was hacked, will he allow Twitter to show all logins to his account?

If he was hacked that could be a serious attempt of a foreign election intervention. If he won’t, did he an the commission lie to the American people?
