Sure Donald Trump is behind with upwards of 40 million votes having already been cast, but he’s got a killer closing narrative: preemptively attacking a 60 Minutes host to draw attention to what was evidently a disastrous interview even by Trump standards:
President Trump abruptly cut off an interview with the “60 Minutes” star Lesley Stahl at the White House on Tuesday and then taunted her on Twitter, posting a short behind-the-scenes video of her at the taping and noting that she had not been wearing a mask in the clip.
Mr. Trump then threatened to post his interview with Ms. Stahl ahead of its intended broadcast time on Sunday evening, calling it “FAKE and BIASED.”
The spectacle of a president, two weeks from Election Day, picking a fight with the nation’s most popular television news program began on Tuesday after Mr. Trump grew irritated with Ms. Stahl’s questions, according to two people familiar with the circumstances of the taping.
One person briefed on what took place said that Mr. Trump had spent more than 45 minutes filming with Ms. Stahl and her CBS News crew, and that the taping had not wrapped up when the president’s aides had expected it to.
Combined with the BOMBSHELL revelation that he showed compassion toward his drug-addicted son I frankly don’t see how Biden recovers from this.
