President Trump threatened to release an interview he granted “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl ahead of Sunday’s airing, suggesting he would expose how “fake and biased” the sitdown was.
Trump sat down with the veteran journalist at the White House on Tuesday, which is set to air Sunday, Oct. 25, along with interviews with Vice President Mike Pence, Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, and Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris.
The president wants to scoop CBS by sharing his interview before the network does.
“I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME!” Trump posted on Twitter. “This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about.”
The president encouraged his Twitter followers to compare interviews with him to interviews with Biden.
“Everyone should compare this terrible Electoral Intrusion with the recent interviews of Sleepy Joe Biden!” Trump tweeted.
Sources tell Fox News that Stahl was “extremely hostile” and that she began the interview along the lines of “get ready for some tough questions.” Sources say she then “unleashed in a way she would never do to Joe Biden.”
Trump also reportedly cut the interview short and a scheduled joint “walk and talk” with him and Pence was scrapped.
Earlier, Trump called out the “60 Minutes” correspondent for not wearing a mask at the White House, sharing a video of a maskless Stahl speaking with two staffers, both of whom were wearing masks.
“Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes not wearing a mask in the White House after her interview with me. Much more to come,” the president teased after the interview.
The tweet is likely in reference to the ongoing criticism the Trump administration receives from members of the media for not strictly following CDC guidelines that urge mask-wearing and social-distancing.
White House Assistant Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt also called out the veteran journalist, accusing her of hypocrisy.
“This is moments after she criticized me for not wearing a mask while working at my desk,” Leavitt tweeted. “Rules for thee but not for me, Lesley?”
President Trump has ratcheted up his attacks against the media in recent weeks between the lack of coverage the reports regarding Hunter Biden’s emails with Ukrainian business contacts, the controversy surrounding suspended C-SPAN host Steve Scully, who was supposed to moderate the canceled second presidential debate because he admitted to lying about his Twitter account being hacked, and has repeatedly slammed NBC News correspondent and third debate moderator Kristen Welker ahead of Thursday’s political showdown.
From the moment Donald J.Trump announced that he was going to run for the job of President of the United States of America, the Main Stream Media, encouraged by their masters, the Democrat Elite, zeroed in on a mission to destroy him, like a squadron of kamikazes attacking the U.S. Navy in World War II.
Now, with Trump running for reelection, these kamikazes of the MSM, again encouraged by their masters, have rushed to protect a dementia-riddled Democratic Presidential Candidate, Joe Biden, through softball interviews and making sure not to show the nonexistent crowds when he makes speeches in public.
They have even gone as far as completely ignoring the scandal involving him and his son, Hunter, which keeps growing every day.
We have seen these kamikazes become bolder and bolder as the years have progressed to the point that they have no compunction in showing their hatred of Trump and advocacy for Biden in the first two Presidential Debates and interviews with the candidates.
President Trump has every right to have grown tired of putting up with the hatred of the Democratic Puppets in the Main Stream Media.
As he reminds us, he has done more for Americans and America in 48 months than Joe Biden has done in 48 years.
I believe that he needs to go ahead and post the unedited version of the Lesley Stahl Interview before the staff at “60 minutes” gets a chance to creatively edit it to make Ms.Stahl look like a objective reporter and make the President look bad.
If the mighty Main Stream Media can play the role of Campaign Staff for Joe Biden, then President Trump has every right to let the American Voters see and hear his side of the story.
The MSM might think twice about being arrogant toward the subject of their interview…especially when the interviewee is the President of the United States of America.
Until He Comes,
