"The Boston Globe is choking," Carr said excitedly, as he helped Trump rattle off some good poll numbers for the Republican standard bearer.
The first question for Trump was why didn't he go after Clinton even more in the first debate.
"I did hold back," Trump said, arguing that the debates are for policy matters, not personal attacks.
"I didn't like getting into the gutter," Trump explained, saying those forums should be a "high level."
"You kept it at a minute twenty," Carr said of Trump's first answer.
Trump made sure to bring up a number of different issues like trade, the economy, Clinton's foreign policy credentials ("Do we have 24 hours to talk about failures?") and more.
But Trump also emphasized this late addition to his campaign schedule had nothing to do with anything else.
"This has nothing to do with Sunday," as Trump then lobbed a few barbs at his opponent over the debate.
"Do you really think that Hillary Clinton is debate prepping for 3 or 4 days?"
Hillary Clinton is resting," Trump said to a few chuckles.
As Carr wrapped up the questions, he couldn't resist one last item about an issue of great local interest.
Sunday's debate starts at 9 pm ET.
