President Donald Trump made his final campaign stop on the eve of the midterm elections in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Missouri is home to a number of contentious state and national races, and the President chose to stop in the hometown of one of Missouris most famous native sons: radio talk show legend Rush Limbaugh.
The packed Show Me Center had lines out the door as thousands stood in the rain waiting to see the president. Limbaugh, who was personally on hand to introduce the Commander in Chief, received a thunderous welcome from his own hometown crowd.

Limbaugh, in classic fashion, went scorched earth on a favorite target: Hillary Clinton. “The Democrats havent even accepted that they lost the election in 2016. Thats what this was all about,” Rush said.
Rush continued by attacking the Russian collusion investigation, “Every day, every newspaper, New York Times, Washington Post, anonymous intelligence sources confirming that Trump colluded with Putin. Theres no evidence for it. Zilch, zero, nada! It didnt happen! It was made up. Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia. Hillary Clinton rigged that election.”
Rush complimented the huge rallies, calling them “the envy of official Washington.”
“These rallies, I have to tell you, they are the envy of official Washington, you realize there isnt a single elected official in either party who can do what this is tonight.” The audience roared.

“Other than Donald Trump. There is nobody,” Rush continued, “No one. And they are jealous. They are envious. This isnt supposed to happen.”
Rush concluded, saying that 2020 hopeful Joe Biden “cant fill a phone booth” on the campaign trail.
