Trump Whines He’s ‘Not Okay’ With ‘Tough Questions’ Prior To Trainwreck ’60 Minutes’ Interview: WATCH


Trump Whines He’s ‘Not Okay’ With ‘Tough Questions’ Prior To Trainwreck ’60 Minutes’ Interview: WATCH

President Trump is seen growing increasingly angry about so-called “tough questions” from CBS News correspondent and “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl before throwing a temper tantrum and walking out in footage of the 60 Minutes interview he published without the network’s permission on Thursday.

Trump abandoned the Tuesday interview after 45 minutes and refused to return for a planned walk-and-talk with Vice President Mike Pence, later slamming it as “fake,” “biased” and “electoral intrusion” in a string of angry tweets.

The footage, which Trump subsequently promised to publish “for the sake of accuracy in reporting,” shows the president angry from the outset.

Before the interview begins, Stahl can be heard asking, “Are you ready for some tough questions?”

“Just be fair,” the president responded.

“But last time [I interviewed you], I remember you saying to me, ‘Bring it on,’” Stahl replied.

“I’m not looking for that, I’m looking for fairness,” he replied.

“You’re going to get fairness,” she said. “But you’re okay with some tough questions?”

“No,” the president replied. “You don’t ask Biden tough questions!”

Trump complained about the framing of the questions throughout the interview which touched on the coronavirus pandemic, the economy and unrest in the United States, before things took a turn for the worst when Stahl brought up campaign rallies Trump has been holding with thousands “jammed together,” many not wearing masks.

“These are the biggest rallies we’ve ever had,” says Trump, which Stahl correctly noted was untrue, prompting the president to respond: “You’re so negative, you’re so negative … You’ve just come in here with that negative attitude.”

After growing increasingly combative, Trump calls it quits.

“Your first statement was, are you ready for tough questions? That’s no way to talk, no way to talk,” said Trump, before turning to someone else in the room and saying: “I think we have enough. Let’s go.”
