(CNS News) – During a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona, on Monday, President Donald Trump criticized CNN for constantly running fearmongering stories about COVID-19 to try scare people into not voting in-person, saying that “people aren’t buying it, CNN, you dumb bastards.”   

“Your state is doing great,” President Trump told the large crowd.  “You have a great governor, as you know, and your state is doing great -- with a pandemic.”

“Pandemic,” he repeated.  “They’re getting tired of the pandemic aren’t they?”

“You turn on CNN, that’s all they cover,” said Trump. “Covid, covid, pandemic, covid, covid, covid, covid, huhwahuh.”

“You know why?” he asked. “They’re trying to talk everyone out of voting.”

“People aren’t buying it, CNN, you dumb bastards,” said the president.  “They are not buying it. That’s all they talk about.” 

The crowd, estimated at 40,000 people (including overflow), cheered wildly at the president’s statement.
