President Donald Trump gave his fourth campaign rally of the day in Montoursville, Pennsylvania.

“It is bitter cold here. Attendees are bundled up, some are wrapped in blankets,” White House pool correspondent Gabriella Orr reported.

Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason posted video of the crowd as Trump was taking the stage to the sound of “Proud to be an American” by Lee Greenwood.

“Wow, good crowd,” Trump began his speech. “This is a hell of a crowd.”

After his praise for turning out a crowd during a pandemic, Trump quickly began repeating the same lie-filled attacks on former Vice President Joe Biden that have become part of his routine.

And he praised his supporters who almost ran a Biden bus off the road in Texas.

And he played lots of videos, including one where Joe Biden is trick-or-treating and happens to actually be Kamala Harris in costume.

But he really raised eyebrows when he argued it is his opponents, not himself, that rejects science.
