The interview was insane! You can watch the full interview on YouTube:
I echo what you've said, he went in unprepared and thought that the interview would be an easy ride because as you've said, he's surrounded himself with yes men and for that, he didn't have substantial answers. This interview was a losing battle for him.He definitely didn’t do himself any favors. It was standard Chris Wallace, but Trump went in unprepared and it shows. Responses were the usual mish-mash of weasel words and little in the way of specifics. These were all easy questions for anyone who’s worth a damn.
Part of the problem is that Trump has surrounded himself with yes men. Most of the folks who were willing to tell him no resigned or were fired.
The Roman emperor Tiberius referred to the Senate as men “fit to be slaves” with regard to how they wouldn’t stand up for themselves and sought only to curry favor. Quite frankly, the American Senate and the President’s cabinet is not all that different in that regard.
yes, he challenged him, but he let him answer, then challenged the answers. Wallace was challenging Trump while he was still answering the question. But again, we shall look to November to see what people are thinking about all this.You’re right, we don’t share the same reality. Wallace refutes factually false information and you see it as Trump not being able to answer his questions when Wallace is responding to wrong information such as when Trump claimed the United States has the lowest mortality rate. We don’t. It’s not up for debate. Using that as evidence that we’re doing fine in our coronavirus response is bullshit when it’s not true, and Wallace is right to call him out. This isn’t North Korea, when the state lies, you call it out.
Then you bring up Obama for some reason like he never was talked over. Took a whopping moment for me to find an interview that shows otherwise.
And you know what came of that interview? Nothing. O’Reilly challenged Obama as he should, and the world moved on. The difference between the two Presidents is that, agree with him or not, Obama could respond with detailed answers and specifics. Trump is incapable of that. Christ, watching Trump fumble softball questions from Hannity such as “what’s your agenda for your next term as President” where the President starts rambling is infuriating. It’s scary that the guy cannot form a coherent answer and do something as simple as say “in my next term as President, I will eliminate Obamacare for good” or something equivalent.
Irrational hate for Trump? There is some of that, yes. Those left wing psychos who were screeching on inauguration day were annoying. But there is a lot of hate for Trump that is most certainly rational. I think his isolationist policies are shortsighted, 18th century thinking that is out of touch with the modern world. He has diminished American soft power which has allowed for increased Russian and Chinese influence in the world, and we are all worse off for it. His coronavirus response has been absolute shit as evidenced by 130+ thousand dead, his continuing claims that it’s gonna be gone any day now. His reappropriating defense funds for that stupid wall that he claimed Mexico was going to pay for is a waste of resources. I can go on and on.
Are you honestly going to sit here and tell me that Trump was unable to get his answers out?yes, he challenged him, but he let him answer, then challenged the answers. Wallace was challenging Trump while he was still answering the question. But again, we shall look to November to see what people are thinking about all this.
Are you honestly going to deny the difference in tone and professionalism between O'Riely interviewing Obama Vs Wallace interviewing Trump? Or that one interview was not even 10 min, while the other was over 40?Are you honestly going to sit here and tell me that Trump was unable to get his answers out?
Who cares?Are you honestly going to deny the difference in tone and professionalism between O'Riely interviewing Obama Vs Wallace interviewing Trump? Or that one interview was not even 10 min, while the other was over 40?
I like how your post contradicts itself. You don’t trust anybody on anything, but you have determined that the Russian collusion debacle is false. Based on information. From other people.Because I don't trust the information is outright fabricated. I don't trust anybody on anything really, because of the insane amount of hate and backlash. Because of 3 + years of false Russian collusion nonsense. Anything anyone says is automatically suspect.
Oh god, Facebook. I don’t have Facebook because it’s a trash platform, so I have to work around this limitation. Is that truly the reason they are calling it false? Or is that your reason? And does this matter? Seriously asking here.You have Facebook fact checking a meme that says "The only reason the US is the only country with a second wave of Covid is because the US is the only country with a consented effort to oust a leader in a few months"
They are calling that false, because many nations are facing the "possibility" of a second wave of covid. It's weasel words like that that make me trust nobody. Sure, ANYTHING is "possible", but what other nation actually is having a second wave, like we are having a second wave?
Opinions are not inherently free of scrutiny.Plus, it's a damn opinion, it's not true or false, it's an opinion...
They fact that all the institutions are working overtime to do this kind of garbage, has me trusting nothing any of them say.
So that is your point? That Chris Wallace is rude? That’s it? So people are rude to the President, everyone is picking on the President, so you’re going to vote for him in retaliation.And, you ask who cares, but that disparity was my point, and you offered that clip as a counter point. But when you could't defend it, you ask, who cares?
How would you know there was a lack of evidence? That’s second hand information. How can you trust anybody? I mean, that’s your default position, right?No, The lack of evidence, is why I deem it false. If you have the evidence, I'll be glad to hear it. But if Muller couldn't find it after 3 years, good look with that.
I don’t care? No, seriously. I really don’t. I’m not in the business of fighting over stupid Facebook memes. That’s Facebook’s prerogative.
Poor President Trump, everyone’s picking on him.
Here’s what I do care about. Saving American lives. The President is finally onboard with wearing a mask and is setting an example via Twitter. Poorly handled, but it’s better late than never. Only took 130000 dead Americans. Good job Mr. President?
