besides “ohmigod the ratings,” that is
The only redeeming thing about this interview is that he destroyed his own legal defense coz "I made the decisions, it was me."
You nailed it with: "The overstuffed trash bag of personality defects that is Donald Trump burst open and every fetid pathology came spilling out." I can't imagine WHY we can't get more airtime for the guy who is actually getting sh*t done, the REAL President./s
And we thought Chuck Todd was bad. Do better, indeed, NBC. I refuse even to watch the clips.
It is time for a national boycott of ALL MEDIA that not only allow him to spew his unspeakable shit
but those news shows and online papers, etc. that won't quit their non-stop coverage of him.
They ought to offer him a Diet Coke laced with quick-acting diarrhea-inducing agents and acid. Not that anyone would be able to tell, but it’d make for a nice chapter in someone’s memoirs.
The only good things that came from that god-awful interview, if one can call it that, is Orange Fucknut implicated himself and admitted crimes that can be used against him in court.
It's 2016 all over again. tRump 24/7 with no attention being paid to any other candidate unless it's some long winded analysis of their campaign.
I'm getting sick of it, frankly.
Jeff, as always, you nailed it!! I truly hoped Welker would do a better job. Boy was I wrong!!! My husband got it right when he said it would be same ole shit different “interviewer”. All I kept thinking was here we go again. Have Welker et al learned nothing over the last 7 years watching this 🍊💩 spew nothing but bullshit or is it just all about the 💰💰💰? I’m guessing the 🍊💩 would never agree to an interview with anyone who he couldn’t steamroll, i.e., Mehdi Hasan.
I don't even want to hear from him in prison. Just lock him up.
He's a gameshow host, so make it a gameshow, with a buzzer that buzzes when he lies, a gavel that bangs when he's out of order, fabulous prizes for audience members who see through his bullshit, a point-board that adds up his petty grievances, and sequined 20-something he can grope. And heeeeeere's your host, Howard Stern!!!
That's all we've got left. Oh yeah... unless he should ever be interviewed by a real journalist who can to toe-to-bone-spurred-toe with this lie-spewer and expose the 'mister president' who has no clothes.
So true Jeff. Why interview this fucktard in the first place? The media which is trying to be so ‘balanced’ is fucking up big-time. TRUMP SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUT AWAY UNDER THE 25TH AMENDMENT! HE’S FUCKING NUTS. THIS INTERVIEW IS FURTHER PROOF OF HIS PATHOLOGY. HE SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO RUN FOR OFFICE NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE 14TH AMENDMENT, BUT THE 25TH ALSO!
I was so excited to learn Chuck Todd was leaving. I was so excited to learn Kristen Welker was taking over the seat. And, again, I was so disappointed in her first interview. Why does MSM keep giving airtime without, at the moment the lie is spoken, a stop and fact check? Don’t they realize yet that the viewers’ attention span only lasts for that moment? An after party fact check does nothing to erase what they heard in that moment. Also, an in-depth article means nothing after a headline is read. The public believes the headline. The public believes President Biden has accomplished nothing because the headlines don’t speak of accomplishments. The headlines keep up with the “he is too old” and the public comes to accept that as truth and sees nothing else. If MSM thinks they are accomplishing reverse psychology by saying trump and Biden are polling in a tie, they are wrong. What they are grooming is an apathetic voter base that will stay home.
I don’t want to see another “interview” of Donald Trump unless it’s from a fucking prison cell.”
My thoughts in a nutshell.
I couldn’t even continue to watch the clips of this dipshit. The news media will be responsible if this despot gets re-elected. It’s so gross!
Personally I haven't watched US television news except in a crisis of immediacy, and you're reminding me of why this is. I could not bear to sit through such an interview. Of course, now that I don't have to sit in huge-insultingly-waste-of-time work "meetings" under bosses who make the words "dumb" and "incompetent" stand-ins for "overachieving," I just don't have the time for listening to idiots. We can blame this whole dystopian nightmare in part on the Oligarchs owning our mainstream media, in part on the bots of disinformation that Trumps' favorite countries love to spread here--including Iran, who is doing a lot better under Biden today than under Trump, and in part because too many American people think that thinking is for egg-heads and not for participating in a democracy. I am still struck by reading the posting of Jessica Craven of the Chop Wood and Carry Water Substack yesterday, where she talked about doing some political calling and talking to a waitress who made $2 an hour (I assume plus tips), and did not have health insurance or use it or try for medicaid because she has been brainwashed to think she does not deserve a handout.
This is what these billionaires, and the Reagan/Trump club did to a lot of people, and I don't know how one undoes 40 years of sheeplike conditioning of not very deep thinking people so that they rethink what a government should be like. I am in Germany right now, the land of self-righteous demands of government. There are a lot of problems here too, but expecting too little of the government is not one of them. In the USA, there needs to be a little more of this. How can one help these people to realize that their country should serve them too, not just the obscenely wealthy.
KRISTEN WELKER MADE A FOOL OF HERSELF, WHAT A WASTE WATCHING MTP HAS BECOME.
