’60 Minutes’ Was Outmatched by Trump
Variety ^ | OCTOBER 14, 2018 | Daniel Daddario

Posted on 10/14/2018 11:07:46 PM PDT by Trump_vs_Evil_Witch

The President talked over Lesley Stahl in a relentless blast of rhetoric that seemed more rally than interview

......the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief enemy, the media, while airing his own points at ceaseless length.....

Lesley Stahl’s interview with Trump was an undeniable get; he’d been scarce on mainstream media since around the time he appeared on tape with NBC’s Lester Holt and indicated he’d fired former FBI Director James Comey in part due to the Russia investigation.

But the interview seemed governed by two motives, both of which played into the hands of a media-savvy President whose refusal to play by typical rules of engagement has been at the center of his rise.

Never talk in the Enemy’s words or terms.

Instead state your own emotional assertions.

Trump winning.

““President Trump to Lesley Stahl: “Lesley......I’m president–and you’re not.””

“”President Trump was on ’60 Minutes’ tonight and took obnoxious liberal interviewer Leslie Stahl to task over and over again…One of the best retorts from the president was when Stahl said she disagrees with Trump and he shoots back:

President Trump to Lesley Stahl: “Lesley, it’s okay. In the meantime, I’m president–and you’re not.””......100Percentfedup.com

This article was so biased I couldn’t finish reading it. Leslie was a hostile interviewer, throwing out machine gun questioning, not wanting to let him finish his points, and only bringing up negative takes on his policies. Neither Obama nor Hillary would ever have been treated like this. But our President stood his ground, made his points, and beautifully repelled her rude questioning.

He answered all her questions with focus, information, and honesty. Masterful. He told it like it is. Why would he reveal secrets to anyone on national television, let alone to Leslie Stahl! That’s common sense and he said just exactly that. He’s honest and straightforward with interviewers and with the American people. She came off poorly. Maybe she’s afraid of loosing her job if she gave him credit for the great job he is doing. Surely she is not so stupid as to not see the reality that he is doing a great job.

That the President’s vanishingly rare appearance on a nonpartisan news program

THIS is why the 'rats will continue losing. Their compass on objective reality is sorely in need of calibration.

All the pro-Trump comments on this article at Variety are a laugh. There is a Dem commenter begging “where are the moderators!?!” Something tells me it will all be cleaned up in the morning.

So the countless times he's been interviewed on Fox News, the highest rated TV network, doesn't count? Maybe they meant he's been scarcely interviewed on lying leftwing media.

I just watched a few minuted of the interview at the C-BS website, but I had to switch it off. That Lesley Stall was so obnoxious. Did she really just pepper him with questions over and over, talk over him, not let him a complete a sentence? Or did they edit it to appear that way for some reason? Either way, she came off as obnoxious, rude and immature. I tuned in to hear the president answer substantive questions about the direction of the country, not to listen to some shrill harpy pepper him with inane questions about the liberal issues du jour - and then talk over all of his answers so he couldn’t finish his thoughts. Let the President finish a sentence you shrill has-been lib!

Pac-Man Trump was waiting for Leslie’s attempt to take him down before the Midterms....the globalist corporate media failed again

‘60 Minutes’ .....(of left-wing social engineering propaganda)

Why anyone would read any of ‘Daniel Daddario’ articles is beyond me...they’re full of expanded gibberish to say the least, uninteresting and flat out reads like a bad novel nobody wants to read.

If only all the (R)s in power would fully embrace Trumpism we really could do some MAGA.

It's not stupidity. She has a mental illness commonly known as liberalism. She has a sad case.
