Trump Abruptly Walks Out of 60 Minutes Interview

Mish

Trump, Vice-President Pence, Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris agreed to 60 Minutes Interviews. Trump walked out.

Moments ago Trump ‘Abruptly Ended’ ‘60 Minutes’ Interview With Lesley Stahl

Trump sat down with host Lesley Stahl for about 45 minutes on Tuesday before he abruptly ended the interview and told the network he believed they had enough material to use, according to two sources.

His truncated taping on "60 Minutes," which was followed by a cryptic tweet accusing Stahl of not wearing a mask at the White House, seemed an extension of what has been Trump's visible irritation as he enters the campaign's final days.

Trump and Pence were scheduled to appear on camera together, like they did four years ago, for a walk and talk session. But Trump did not return for the appearance with Pence, sources said.

Tump Notes Lesley Stahl Not Wearing a Mask

No mention of why he walked out but "much more to come".

Running Angry, Not Scared

"I'm not running scared," Trump told reporters. "I think I'm running angry." 

 'You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.' He said that," Stahl said.

Stahl was hospitalized for covid in the spring. She, like Trump, according to Trump is "immune" to covid.

He's a big effin whiner and baby.

This is exactly why seniors/electorate are turning on him, he is not doing himself any favors.

This type of erratic behavior is beginning to worry people as this is what would one expect from a toddler/child, imagine how easy it is for a natural amoral manipulator like Putin/Meadows/Kushner to mess with this guy.

Considering Trump' well-known short attention span, I suspect that after 40 minutes with the 60 minutes team he was distracted and went for a burger...then moved on to other things on his agenda. Nice to see that 60 minutes gets the time of day from Trump, considering that 90% of his television interview are with FOX

Let's see what kind of attacks Leslie Stahl directed against Trump in her questions.

Maybe she did the "do you denounce white supremacists?" bit for the 100th time.

Wallace asked that 4 times and the first 3 times that Trump answered "SURE" was not enough for Wallace so he asked for 4th time and Joe Biden yelled out "Proud Boys" and Trump told them to "stand down and stand by" and to let Police handle Antifa riots.

Media manufactured "Trump did NOT denounce white supremacists" news cycle out of that answer despite Proud Boys being led by a BLACK man and having black, latino, asian and white members.

Two salient thoughts come to mind, first Trump didn't like the direction of the interview and second Trump is increasingly frustrated. These kanipshin fits are now a daily occurrence. Feels like Trump is cracking

I really don't get it. I see the obvious appeal of doing 60 minutes but if Trump wanted a safe place he should have done more Hannity So Trump pulls Eric Cartman

The question isn't how the interview went, it's how the interview will be presented. Stahl could, for instance, edit it to show softballs, then Trump getting up and leaving with the quote in voice-over. Bailing wasn't an option if Trump still believes 60 Minutes can get him air time with anyone persuadable. But, 60 Minute viewers will see what they see.

Just exercised my right to suffrage. No wait.

Once again, the choice was between the crook and the idiot, as Molly Ivins used to say.

I voted for the idiot.

Maybe this is his super-secret-aquirrel stategy whereby if he doesn't storm out of the debate, he'll declare he's the winner because he restrained his enormous outrage at being pressed for details.....

Nothing new. About 30 years ago Illinois Power Company of Decatur Illinois sued 60 Minutes and won after 60 Minutes sliced and diced editing of recorded interviews of Illinois Power Company managers of a nuclear power plant in Clinton, IL. Illinois Power Company won in court because they had recorded the interviews in their entirety, unbeknownst to 60 Minutes.

About time for you to go on 60 minutes, Mish. You can discuss your Pizza Hut indicator of the economy.

On a side note it looks like Rudy turned over a hard drive containing underaged girls on Hunters computer. Not that I believe it but can we get just one direct question from the media about this and the meeting? Seems relevant.

Americans accidentally picked a 5-year old toddler as their President in 2016. Today they just find out that the President actually is now 4-year old!

Giuliani talking about what he found on Hunter Biden's laptop:

1.
Hunter Biden smoking crack while naked in the presence of 14-year old girl and Hunter's sister-in-law getting worried and forbidding her from visiting Hunter because Hunter created an unsafe environment.
So this is Beau Biden's daughter and the sister-in-law is Beau Biden's widow who was banging/dating Hunter Biden after Beau Biden died.
This info was from a message Hunter Biden sent to Joe Biden.

2.
Hunter Biden emailing her own daughter that Joe Biden takes 50% of the money Hunter Biden "earns" and has done this for 30 years so Hunter Biden has been Joe Biden's bag man for 30 years so Joe Biden has been CORRUPT as hell for 30 years.

3.
Hunter Biden and Devon Archer had a Morgan Stanley brokerage account through which about 800 million dollars flowed and they used this account for money laundering and got some millions in compensation for this laundering of money.

4.
So far Bidens seem to have earned tens and tens of millions from this corruption where Joe Biden sold his position and Hunter Biden collected the money.

5.
The hard-drive copy has been turned over to Delaware State Police by Giuliani because of the topless and suggestive pose pictures of the 14 year old girl.

6.
Giuliani has looked at just half of the harddrive.

7.
FBI had the harddrive since December 2019 so FBI had this while Trump was being impeached so FBI leadership HID proof of Joe Biden's corruption and has done NOTHING.
FBI needs to be CLOSED and REPLACED with a new agency or the whole FBI needs to be reformed starting with FIRING all in the FBI leadership positions.

8.
Out of 10 million dollar yearly deal Biden's had with China Hunter Biden got 20% and Hunter kept 10% for the "big guy" and this is Joe Biden and Bidens had an office paid by the chinese and asked for keys for Joe Biden.

9.
Hunter Biden's signature and name is on the form leaving the Macbook to be repaired for water damage with the computer shop and Hunter Biden's lawyer asked for the laptop back long after the 90 day limit to pay the bill had expired and ownership transferred to the Computer repair shop.

Lots more in the video:

Joe Biden is TOTALLY DONE.
There is NO way Joe Biden gets elected IF media reports the FACTS.

If USA was a working DEMOCRACY Joe Biden and Hunter Biden would be ARRESTED by FBI tomorrow and actually they would have been arrested already in December 2019.

It is likely Joe Biden ran for president to avoid arrest and his only option to avoid a long prison sentence is to be elected president.

Last time in 2016 the IBD/TIPP poll was the closest to the actual election result from national polls.
And this has been the case in 2012, 2008 and 2004 too

Right now and just when the Hunter Biden emails/laptop story dropped the poll shows:

"The latest IBD/TIPP Trump vs. Biden poll update shows the Democratic challenger leading the Republican incumbent by 2.3 points, 48.1%-45.8%, in a four-way presidential poll of likely voters."

So Biden lead is 2.3% now and there are plenty of emails left to reveal from the Hunter Biden laptop.

Hillary Clinton won Trump by 2% nationally but Trump still won the presidency in electoral college.
Joe Biden is away until the Thursday debate "prepping" for a 4 day "lid" on the campaign and Trump is going around and doing 2-4 rallies a day

Maybe he stipulated the order the interview topics were discussed in advance and decided to leave before the more difficult ones came up? Also 60 minutes would have less footage to edit so would feel compelled to include most of what was taped and not edit out so much. If so it wasn’t a very good plan. 60 minutes should just rename his episode 45 minutes.

Scoot:
The 60 minutes in question will have Biden, Pence and Harris too so if VP candidates get 15 minutes each then Trump and Biden get 15 minutes too and if VP Candidates get 10 minutes each then Trump and Biden get 20 minutes each.

Maybe 60 minutes can cut 15-20 minute segment from the 45 minutes of interview Trump gave them?

The only conclusion I can guarantee is that Trump has now made 60 minutes must watch TV. Everyone now wants to know what set Trump off, not that it takes much these days. Trump is easily unhinged but its been almost non-stop since getting out of Walter Reed. If Trump does get re-elected he's apt to burn the white house down. We already know he intends to dismantle the FBI.

This sounds about right...

According to a person with knowledge of what happened during the interview, Trump was unhappy that Stahl asked him tough questions regarding his rhetoric about Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, and his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the size of the crowds at his rallies and his disputes with Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious-disease expert. She also told him during the interview that allegations about Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, were not verified and that the Obama administration did not spy on the Trump campaign. Many of the questions were about the coronavirus pandemic and his handling of it, the person said.

Lesley Stahl is a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), along with other propagandists for the "liberal world order" including Jake Tapper, Mika Brzezinski, Fareed Zakaria, etc. See lists at the CFR website.

I watched Trump's video dump and posted it in the user area. Stahl was fair. Trump came with a chip on his shoulder. It's clear he lives in a solipsism fed by yes men and sycophants. Stahl was having none of it. She was polite but asked Trump questions he didn't want asked. And after 45 minutes he storms off. Ironically by releasing it today he's given Biden debate ammunition. Trump said he wants to end Obamacare and admitted he has no replacement
