President Trump, in a Saturday night rally stumping for Republican candidate Rick Saccone, disparaged everyone from “low IQ” Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., to NBC’s “sleepy” Chuck Todd.
Saccone is locked in a tough race against Democrat Conor Lamb in a Pennsylvania district Mr. Trump won by 20 points in 2016. The president’s speech came just days before the special congressional election Tuesday.
Republicans are doing all they can to keep that district red, so Mr. Trump came to rally. On Saturday afternoon, people lined up in the 18th District long before doors opened for the president’s 7 p.m. speech.
Saccone has been struggling to gain enthusiasm in Trump country.
