OMFG- Trump posted the 60 mins: Its nuts - Updating as more comes in - the 2 handed glass is back. [View all]

How the 60 Minutes tape posted by Trump begins:

Stahl: You ready for tough questions?
Trump: Just be fair.
Stahl: Last time you were like bring it on.
Trump: "No, I'm not looking for that."
Stahl: "...But you're OK with some tough questions?"
Trump: "No, I'm not."

Dementia Drinking is back and it looks even worse.

In the '60 Minutes' interview Trump posted, Trump says he hopes the Supreme Court ends the Affordable Care Act.

In the '60 Minutes' interview Trump posted, a great deal of the discussion is devoted to Trump complaining that Stahl hasn't gone after Joe Biden enough. Stahl eventually asks: "Why are you asking me about going after Biden? You've asked me 5 times."

In the '60 Minutes' Trump posted, Stahl asks Trump about the health care plan he has never released. He says he has one, but won't release it yet. He then changes: "We will come up with a plan." He then changes again: "We have large sections of it already done."

The only way I can explain
releasing this entire video is:

1. He insisted on it over the objections of his comms team.

2. His comms team is either so incompetent or so deluded that they agreed that releasing this video was a good idea.


Its even better than we wished, he's batshit in it.
