Last night, we all watched in pretty much real-time as Donald Trump’s disastrous 60 Minutes interview with correspondent Leslie Stahl unfolded. While we have yet to see the actual interview or get word on what happened to set the petulant President off, CNN’s White House correspondent Katie Collins reported that the interview was cut short, with Trump allegedly storming out and not even returning to film his scheduled walk and talk with Vice President Mike Pence.
It didn’t take long at all for the President to rush to his Twitter account with a dramatic post, threatening to release footage of the interview before airtime and shouting from the rooftop about the perceived media bias against him, not short of his customary jab at his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
Not to mention, after the theatrics over the interview, Trump was seen looking a sullen, pouty mess as he departed the White House en route to his Pennsylvania MAGA rally last night.
But, in what’s we’ve learned to be true Trump fashion, Donald still simply can’t get over it, according to a new report from the Washington Post.
The Post reports that, after abruptly ending the 60 Minutes interview at around 45 minutes in, Trump spent “hours” complaining about Stahl and the interview as a whole.
One senior White House official, speaking with the publication, said, “Trump had told aides he wanted to go after Stahl and brainstormed ideas after the session with a group of aides in the Oval Office.”
To make matters all the more perplexing, another White House official tells WaPo that they don’t even know why Trump is so inconsolably vexed, as the interview apparently didn’t even contain any “bombshell revelations.”
Speaking with the Post, a White House Staffer said, “The interview was not that bad. It wasn’t a bad interview. She just had a tone he didn’t like.”
Whaddya know? Once again, it seems that the President of this nation has made a complete and utter ass out of himself simply because he didn’t like the “tone” a woman was taking with him.
