He elaborated on those remarks today on his radio show, explaining that the heated presser was “effective in rallying his voters, effective in rallying his supporters, ’cause they needed it.”

“Trump supporters, Trump voters have been watching this past month go by with these incessant, endless allegations of incompetence,” Limbaugh said, “and Trump had been tweeting and reacting to it.
