Donald Trump leaked his own whiny, petulant, lie-filled ’60 Minutes’ interview

The saga of Donald Trump’s 60 Minutes interview has been entertaining me all week. On Thursday, I had another day like the “Trump tested positive for coronavirus” day, where I kept laughing at every new revelation. So, to recap: earlier this week, Lesley Stahl went to the White House to record an interview with Trump for Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes. The episode was supposed to feature interviews with Trump, Mother’s Husband, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Trump walked out of the interview at some point in a huff. Also, at some point, Kayleigh McEnany presented Stahl with a thick binder full of what they said would be all of Trump’s healthcare accomplishments. The pages were blank.

Throughout all of the whining Trump did this week, it was clear that he really felt like Stahl “wronged” him in some way, possibly by being a woman, possibly by simply asking him follow-up questions, possibly by telling him he was lying when he was lying. And so Trump felt so persecuted, he claimed he was going to release the full 60 Minutes interview himself before it aired on CBS. And then he did just that. He leaked the full video – how did he get access to it?? – on Facebook, because he thought it would make him look good, or it would make Stahl look bad. I watched about a dozen clips and… Donald Trump basically leaked a video of himself looking like a gigantic, petulant, lying child, just whining from start to finish and lying about crazy sh-t and then being nasty to Stahl whenever she tried to fact check him. Here are some clips.

TRUMP: "No, I'm not."

STAHL: "You're not okay with tough questions?"

Trump thinks this looks *good* for him!!!

I’m already laughing. Here he is lying about masks AND crowd size.

His little baby fists can barely clutch the water.

And here he is, actually telling the truth about one thing: that he hopes the ACA is struck down so that millions of people will lose their health care during a pandemic.

And finally, here’s Trump whining some more and then leaving in a huff because he thinks Lesley Stahl asked him such hard, brutal questions.
