Rush Limbaugh, during the Wednesday broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, tamped down reports that President Donald Trump referred to the White House as a “real dump,” and claimed that he’d seen the opposite with his own eyes.
Limbaugh claimed that Trump personally gave him a tour in March, and claimed that the president considered the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue residence more than suitable.
“Now, on this White-House-is-a-dump business, I’ve never been to Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey,” Limbaugh began. “The story is at TheHill.com, where they report members at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club that the White House is ‘a real dump.’”
He continued, “I just can tell you this. I was at the White House, Kathryn and I were at the White House on March 23rd for about five hours … Before we sat down and had dinner, Trump gave us a tour of the White House and the residence. I had been there before, and I didn’t quite know how to handle that.”
