“As the pandemic spirals out of control and millions of Americans suffer economic losses and hardships, the President of the United States has apparently decided to make his final post: The lady on TV was really mean to me. Yes, all week President Trump cried incessantly about his interview with 60 minutesLesley Stahl, claiming his unfair questions are to blame because he interrupted the interview before it was over.
On Thursday, the president chose to release his first cut of the interview, which Late night host Seth Meyers called “truly one of the most embarrassing, squeaky things I’ve ever seen on video.”
In the clip released by the White House, Stahl asked, “Are you ready for some tough questions?” to which Trump replied, “Be fair,” before moving uncomfortably in his seat, adding, “I’m looking for fairness.” When Stahl said she would be fair, but asked him again if he was ready for tough questions, “the president replied,” No, I’m not. ”
“I’m sorry – it’s your big one I got you? This video? You couldn’t handle this Rhetorical question? It’s like a boxing referee asking if you’re ready for a good, clean fight and answering, ‘No … I’m going to bite his ear … because I’m bad at boxing.’ ”
One of the most revealing exchanges concerned Obamacare, which the Trump administration and the GOP are currently trying to overturn in court – a decision that would leave tens of millions more people with pre-existing conditions uninsured during a pandemic that has killed more than 220,000 Americans. until there.
When Trump was asked what his plan was after he took down Obamacare, he did not have one, replying, “We’ll see what happens.” Stahl pressed Trump on how people with pre-existing conditions would be protected after Obamacare, and he always came up empty, simply saying, “They will be protected” and offering no further explanation as to how.
“He obviously doesn’t have a plan, and he doesn’t intend to come up with one either, because he doesn’t care what happens to people with pre-existing conditions,” Meyers said. “And by the way, there are about 8 million more people with pre-existing conditions now that Trump has let the coronavirus rage out of control. He has no plan for protect people with pre-existing conditions – he has a plan for give people with pre-existing illnesses. “
