Just be fair,” the president said.
https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2020/10/22/60-minutes-accuses-trump-of-unprecedented-breach/ When Stahl asked him about priorities for a second term and Trump talked about having created “the greatest economy in the history of the country,” Stahl immediately broke in.
“You know that’s not true,” she said.
Trump objected and said she wouldn’t address Biden in the same manner.
Stahl — who, like Trump, was hospitalized with COVID-19 but recovered — said she could not believe that after a Rose Garden event that led to several people coming down with the virus that the president was not strongly encouraging people to wear masks at his campaign rallies.
“We tell people to wear masks,” Trump said.
“No, you don’t,” Stahl answered.
She also hit a Trump trigger point by commenting, “you used to have bigger rallies.” The president objected to the characterization and complained Stahl was being negative.
Trump brought up unproven allegations against Biden’s son, Hunter, and his work overseas, saying that “it’s one of the biggest scandals we’ve ever seen and you’re not covering it.”
“Because it can’t be verified,” Stahl said.
She asked Trump about his demeanor on social media and whether he felt responsible for deep divisions between Americans. “It’s just attack, attack, attack, attack, attack,” she said.
“It’s not attack,” Trump said. “It’s defense against attacks.”
When an offscreen voice tried to give the two a five-minute warning for the end of the interview, Trump said “I think we’ve had enough” and walked away. He declined to participate in a brief, planned appearance with Pence.
When she sat down with Pence, Stahl wondered what just happened.
“Lesley, uh, President Trump is a man who speaks his mind,” the vice president said. “I think it’s one of the great strengths he’s had as president of the United States. The American public always knows where they stand, and he’s always ready to make the case for the American people and the case for the progress we’ve made for the past three and a half years.”
