Twice-impeached former President Trump appeared on Fox News shortly after the death of conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh—to whom he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year—to continue peddling the lie that he won the 2020 election.

“Rush thought we won, and so do I,” Trump said. “He thought it was over at 10 o’clock, 10:30.” It seems Trump hasn’t turned his back on Fox News after all.

Limbaugh died of lung cancer at age 70.
