During Trump’s 60 Minutes sit-down,
Lesley Stahl humiliated herself

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 10/27/2020 7:19:32 AM

The CBS 60 Minutes fiasco was all of Lesley Stahl’s doing; she embarrassed herself. She thought that she had the President in her sights and she intended to belittle him. Why not? She and her network have a long history of deceitful editing with the goal of destroying people they loathe. Remember Dan Rather’s “fake but accurate” defense of his phony documents meant to derail George Bush’s re-election. Stahl’s interview was not an interview, it was an ambush. She did not count on him pushing back; that is how dense she is.

Wonderful article, thanks Patricia. The Donald pushed back and Lesley's feelings were hurt. She tried to get Rush to pledge his listeners to a smooth transition. Someone notes that she is Nancy's age. Over the hill and uninformed!

She totally ignored most of President Trump's answers. She told him what he did and did not know. She was debating.

I've intentionally avoided her for decades, but, of course, saw clips of the interview before it aired. OMG! Seeing her still wearing the same hairdo and make-up of her much-younger days startled me. She's straight out of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane"!

She's either uninformed or dishonest, probably both. She should be embarrassed, if even possible.

Sixty Minutes lost their credibility probably 30 years ago with the exploding gas tank fiasco. I have not watched the show again. You can always expect the "hosts" to have an agenda. Why would any politician ever want to do the show?

Excellent article. Spot on analysis! Leslie’s superior and dismissive attitude toward the POTUS was clear indication that she thinks far more highly of herself than she should. Embarrassingly shameful.

To be humiliated, Stahl would have to have some self respect, pride, dignity, honestly, introspection and integrity. It is impossible for Stahl to be humiliated has she nothing in her character to understand humiliation. It is impossible for one to be humiliated while navel gazing in an echo chamber. Simply impossible.

I was hoping Leslie would be fair and professional. Even though I only watched clips of the interview, she seemed to act childish and unprofessional. I'm sure she'll be rewarded in her next paycheck for following the corporate dictates for trying to slam President Trump with her lack of respect and arrogance.

It was clear from the first moments of her hatchet job (clearly wasn't a traditional question/answer interview) that she was out to put him on his heels. Her continual interruptions were nasty and her lack of knowledge of what's actually been printed was an embarrassment towards all supposed journalists. Her absolute lack of understanding of what he had accomplished was beyond belief. It was a DNC interview of a campaign opponent.

This reminds me of all the videos of shallow reporterettes trying to ambush Jordan Peterson. They sit with a truly fascinating person, and all they know how to do is act superior and try silly devices to expose wrong-think. It is, as the author says, pathetic. By the way, McCarthy excoriates NeverTrumpers who have "lost the ability to reason", then lauds Thomas Sowell as one of the patriots who "keep us grounded." I love the guy, but isn't Sowell a NeverTrumper? Maybe he's come around; I hope so.

I watched the two interviews the President posted. I taped 60 Minutes to watch later and see how it compared. After the opening segment of the interview I deleted the recording so I wouldn't waste any more of my time. Stahl was pathetic, hectoring the President and acting like a clueless chucklehead.

“Ernie Pyle”. Now that’s a name I haven’t heard for awhile. It would be a hoot to watch Leslie Stahl debating him. Thank you #22 for that memory nudge. And thank you other posters who delight us by using certain words to describe disreputes we are sometimes exposed to.

“Democrats have been thinking about this for a long time….” Tucker Carlson, November 5, 2020 (snip) last night he laid out convincingly the path ahead by which the left, principally relying on its media an social media dominance, will attempt to install as president a man who needed fraudulent votes to win. The plot, in short, is to have the TV networks, AP, and NYT/WaPo declare the race is decided. At that point the social media censors step in and suppress all efforts – even those of a sitting president -- to uncover the fraud as conspiracy theories and an attack on democracy itself.

A rumor circulated widely that more people voted in Wisconsin than were registered. Although not true, it strikes me as an honest mistake. The originator of the rumor was looking at the registration numbers for 2018. More people did vote in Wisconsin in 2020 than were registered in 2018. The real numbers are almost as incredible. In 2020, an astounding 88 percent of those registered to vote seem to have voted. In Ohio, another battleground state, the turnout was a much more typical 68 percent.
