I counted 6 lies or overstatements by the 1:30 mark.

I was just trying to guess Mickey's answer. I think some would argue that the whole hemisphere (basically) is part of one capitalist system, though.

This is still true for Texas, where people hire whomever is best for their bottom line and then act like they're scum for existing. Its a pretty incredible load of bullshit.

Apparently, he's been trashing Kristen Welker all week, so it'll be fun to see Biden smile on as Trump gets in argument after argument with the moderator.

Trump just preempted CBS by releasing the 60 Minutes interview that will be airing on Sunday.

facebook mirror, not sure how long it'll be available

Direct link to Trump's original facebook video(you don't have to be logged in)

It's the recording done by the White House that was stated to be filmed only for archival purposes (can't immediately find the news article I read this from NY Times).

The video is interesting because you really get the interviewer's perspective.
It has Trump's mic feed but not Lesley Stahl's. Stahl is kind of being picked up by a room mic or Trump's mic, not her own.
And the camera is fixed on Trump the entire time.

It's what it would feel like to interview Trump.

Stahl even comments on what it's like
@ 28:47
Stahl: I've been listening to you I don't know how long we've been here.. And it's just attack, attack, attack, attack attack
Trump: I don' think so
Trump: It's not attack
Stahl: It is
Trump: It's Defense against attacks
Stahl: No you've been attacking
Trump: It's defense against attacks
Stahl: You're very impressive
Trump: I don't think so-- I mean I don't view it that way. I'm defending myself and I'm defending the institution of the presidency.

Then Stahl starts to speak the first word of her next question and Trump cuts her off and goes back to what he's been hammering on throughout the interview, how he gets unfair questions Biden would never get.

Stahl: Wow you won't get off it.

Ha, when he got onto the Hunter Biden thing, and she said she can't verify that.
"It's been totally verified, just go down and get the papers."

:lol:

B gets to the heart of it.

Basically, elevating the Giuliani/laptop rabbit hole was the primary benefit of this interview to the White House. Stahl told him 60 Minutes wouldn’t be elevating claims they couldn’t verify.

Putting the interview out there himself guarantees that those claims make it into the conversation, which he thinks helps him more than any negative reaction the rest of the tape might produce.

I hope he shows up tonight with that gravelly, smoker's voice. It's both sexy and proof that he's not over COVID.

I fast forwarded to the final few minutes. My god he's a fucking joke.

"Your first question to me, no quiet, listen, your first question to me was "are you ready for tough questions?", thats no way to talk. When we first got this interview you said it would bea nice little chat"

God he's a pathetic human being.
