Former President Donald Trump broke his silence yesterday during a media blitz to pay tribute to loyal ally Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh’s career speaks for itself but Trump and Rush grew close over the last four years and while Trump was praising Limbaugh he also settled a few scores.
The big one was with Joe Biden. Trump took aim at Biden’s vaccine gaffe at a recent town hall saying: “So he’s either not telling a truth, or he’s mentally gone, one or the other.”
Biden said this at his townhall: “We got into office and found out the supply, there was no backlog. There was nothing in the refrigerator figuratively and literally speaking and there were 1 million doses a day that were available. We’ve upped that, in the first weeks that we were in office to significantly more than that.”

“It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator — how do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm? So you need the paraphernalia. You need the needle, and you need mechanisms to be able to get it in. You have to have people who can inject it into people’s arms,” he said.
Trump responded on Newsmax by saying Biden could have just made a horrible gaffe as he does a lot so he said to “give him the benefit of the doubt” before saying, “could he be joking? Because, frankly, that was a very dumb statement.”
“Well, I saw that he said there was no vaccine when he came into office, and yet he got a shot before he came into office,” Trump said. “It was already in early November when we announced it, but we actually had it substantially before that.”
“We were giving millions of shots and millions of doses. So he’s either not telling a truth, or he’s mentally gone, one or the other,” Trump said.
“Actually, Biden’s being killed on that whole thing because even the haters are saying, ‘you know, this vaccine was announced long before,’” he said, reiterating that he believes he got the shot sometime before Jan. 20.”
“He is getting lit up on that one. Even the bad ones, even the ones that aren’t exactly fans are saying that was a bad statement,” Trump continued.
“I really wanted to be somewhat quiet,” Trump said as to why he has not been front and center, “It hasn’t been that quiet, frankly, but I wanted to be somewhat quiet.”
“I understand on Twitter, it’s become very boring and millions of people are leaving. They’re leaving it because it’s not the same, and I can understand that,” he said of the platform.
