Trump Releases Full 60 Minutes Interview, Reveals Media Bias

Before its scheduled air date, Trump released his full 60 Minutes interview that shows him walking out after biased questions.
On Thursday, President Trump posted his full interview with “60 Minutes” ahead of its scheduled air time to show journalist Lesley Stahl’s bias during the interview that he walked out of.

The president posted the nearly 40-minute sit-down to his Facebook page with the caption: “Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS.”

“Tonight’s anchor, Kristen Welker, is far worse!” Trump added, referencing the NBC News anchor and moderator of the second presidential debate.

During the interview, he bemoans that Stahl opened the interview by asking if he was ready for “tough questions,” calling it “no way to talk.” He complains repeatedly that Stahl did not ask tough questions to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, to which Stahl responds that she did not interview Biden. Trump corrects himself to say “the interview” with Biden.

“I think we have enough. We have enough,” Trump says in the clip, moving to end the interview. “I think we’re ready for the vice president now,” a production assistant says off camera.  “OK, that’s enough. Let’s go,” Trump says.

CBS News said earlier this week that the White House agreed that they would tape the interview “for archival purposes only.”

CBS News said in a statement after Trump posted the interview, “The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 MINUTES from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades.”

“60 MINUTES, the most-watched news program on television, is widely respected for bringing its hallmark fairness, deep reporting and informative context to viewers each week. Few journalists have the presidential interview experience Lesley Stahl has delivered over her decades as one of the premier correspondents in America and we look forward to audiences seeing her third interview with President Trump and subsequent interview with Vice President Pence this weekend,” the statement read.

The interview will air Sunday alongside another with Biden, who was interviewed by correspondent Norah O’Donnell earlier this week.

The interview is combative throughout, with Stahl often interjecting to point out basic facts and question Trump on some of his claims and rhetoric.

Trump at multiple points claims that Stahl has “discredited herself” by not covering allegations in the New York Post about Hunter Biden’s business dealings after Stahl said “60 Minutes” could not verify them.

At the beginning of the interview, Stahl focuses on the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus and the rising cases in the United States, asking him to acknowledge the increase.  “I think we have done a great job with COVID,” Trump says. “Sir, excuse me. Cases are up in about 40 states,” Stahl replies. “Because we do so much testing, the fake news media loves to say, cases are up. The fact is we have done a very good job,” Trump replies.

“We have turned the corner. We understand the disease. We understand the elderly and we are taking care of them,” Trump continued.

At one point, Trump grows agitated with Stahl’s characterization of his recent plea to suburban women to “please like me” at a campaign rally.

“You said the other day to suburban women, ‘Will you please like me?’” Stahl says in a pleading voice.

“Oh I didn’t say that. You know, that is so misleading the way you said it. I say jokingly, suburban women you should love me because I’m giving you security and I got rid of the worst regulation,” Trump says.

“See, the way you said that is why people think of you and everyone else as fake news,” Trump continues. “I said that in a joking way. The way you have it is like I’m begging.”

    POTUS is right…stahl couldn’t hide her expressions of pompous, phony righteousness. When an interviewer goes FROM: ‘there are some who may disagree with you…TO: ‘you know that isn’t true’….THAT is bias. She’s only one of many, and 60 minutes is an arm of the DNC.

    Patriots sounds like in this article that you are defending 60 minutes. Everybody knows that 60 minutes is a tree hugging screaming liberal outlet. Senator Lindsey Graham said on Fox “I don’t know why the President agreed to talk to 60 minutes.” Stahl’s last interview with the President was contentious at best so to me that would have signified the end of any future interviews with any of the big 3.

    Lesly Stahl is a Jewish, staunch, Democrat, and it definitely showed in her interview ! I , frankly, do not understand why ANY Jewish person would vote Democrat, when the entire party is filled with Racist, and Anti Semitic people, who will do NOTHING to ever help Jewish people, or the State of Israel !

    Oh MY GOSH!!! She is/was tedious!!!! No wonder he got tired of her nonsense! She gave ME a headache, and I wasn’t the one being interviewed! She came with preconceived ideas, and NOT willing to learn a thing. She had it stuck in her head ANYTHING he might say HAD to be a lie, and called him a liar on numerous occasions. RUDE would be an understatement, and kind assessment of her performance.
