President Trump fiercely defended his presidency as a combative Lesley Stahl interrupted and asked one-sided questions during his ’60 Minutes’ interview. As Eric Bolling said, they used “a disingenuous tactic of cutting to Stahl narrating over video. Easy to see they are scrambling to redirect the narrative.”

The President called out the “dishonest media,” defending his relationships with Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, expressing mistrust in unnamed aides and, when Lesley Stahl overstepped, he pointed out that “I’m president and you’re not.”

Stahl tried to pin Trump down with a pledge not to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“I don’t pledge anything,” Trump said. “But I will tell you, I have no intention of doing that. I think it’s a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind.”

“I don’t want to pledge,” he added. “Why should I pledge to you? If I pledge, I’ll pledge. I don’t have to pledge to you. But I have … I have no intention of doing that.”


Stahl, unhappy with his handling of Putin, noted that Moscow is suspected in multiple assassinations of critics. Trump didn’t deny that Putin could be behind such things, but took a “mind our own business” approach.

“Of course they shouldn’t do it,” Trump said, “but it’s not our country.”

Trump acknowledged that Russia meddled in the election.

“They meddled,” he said. “But I think China meddled, too. And I think, frankly, China is a bigger problem.”


Stahl also pressed Trump about his overtures to Kim Jong-un.

“I get along with him really well,” Trump said of Kim. “I have a good energy with him. I have a good chemistry with him. Look at the horrible threats that were made. No more threats. No more threats.”

He explained that saying he “loved” him is just an expression, but the media refuses to understand.


Stahl asked about General Mattis leaving and the President said he may leave and he’s “sort of a Democrat”.

“He may leave,” Trump said of Mattis. “I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That’s Washington.”

When asked if Mattis had to instruct him on NATO, he said it wasn’t true.

“No, it’s not true,” Trump said. “Frankly, I like Gen. Mattis [but] I think I know more about it than he does.”


He was asked about climate change, a Democrat religion currently used to stir hysteria.


Asked what he has learned and what he was most surprised by since becoming president.

“So I always used to say the toughest people are Manhattan real estate guys and blah, blah. Now I say they’re babies,” Trump said.

Trump and Stahl had a testy exchange over his distrust of the media.

“I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it,” Trump said. “I’m not saying that as a soundbite. I never knew how dishonest.”

Stahl sought to stop the attack, saying, “I’m going to change the subject again.” But Trump then directed his criticism at his interviewer.

“Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like, about [family] separation [of illegal immigrants at the border]. When I say, ‘Obama did it,’ you don’t want to talk about it.”

“I disagree, but I don’t want to have that fight with you,” Stahl said.

“Lesley, it’s okay,” Trump replied. “In the meantime, I’m president and you’re not.”

About S. Noble

Welcome from Long Island, New York!We want to present the news that the mainstream tends to ignore from a right-of-center perspective.I’m an ex-liberal and am amazed at all I didn’t know when I was a liberal, like: the Constitution isn’t a “living” document; giving out endless welfare checks is a bad idea; pity for prisoners is better spent on the victims of their crimes; guns aren’t evil but people are; free speech matters more than I knew which is why PC needs to be obliterated ASAP; women can be evil too; big government doesn’t do a good job.Kumbaya, We Are the World, It Takes a Village, and anything even remotely resembling those concepts are now out of my head unless I’m using them to make fun of somebody; war is necessary when under attack; socialism and communism have absolutely no redeeming qualities as systems of government; Carter wasn’t a good president and Reagan was, Green should go back to being a color.Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…We research and are as factual as possible and provide links to sources though commentary is commentary. If we make a mistake, we correct it.I have published educational articles, short stories for children and was a copy editor for This Week Magazine. I have a B.A. in English Literature and masters degrees in Education, Secondary Education and Administration. For 33 years, I worked in education as a teacher of English and later, Special Education, and spent years as an elementary principal, secondary principal and central office administrator.The name Sara Noble is a nom de plume. There are a few reasons for the nom de plume and included in those is the fact that many of my family members are liberals and don’t want their last name out there on a center-right blog. I started out with the pseudonym and just kept it. It’s a family name.Pity me, I’m surrounded by liberals and I live in New York.
