    She is a horrible interviewer..interupts every 5 seconds...and when he says I think Russia meddled it is not good enough for her so she lies then badgers him. What a useless annoying twit. I stopped watching 60 Minutes years ago because they stink and always have a liberal agenda.

    Liberal media is going down. FAST. They are in the tank for liberal democRATS in epic proportions. People are wakening up and turning them off. Truth has no value to them,only sensationalism. The BRETT KAVANAUGH HEARINGS proved that. Come to RhodeIsland and see what liberalism can do to a (once great) state.

    Very evident she dislikes him...but then again she works in a whole building that hates Trump..can you expect anything differently..funny how she releases this video ...just a showboat ...bashing him once he’s not around to defend himself... he will respond to this video when he’s asked about it, and then he’ll get slammed for sticking up for himself...

    60 Minutes is a joke. If you want to see how trust worthy 60 Minutes is, rent Michael Mann's The Insider. This isn't news reporting. Ford is a liar and should be indicted for perjury. Trump gets it right every time. CBS is Fake News!

    I've endured many years of communist propaganda when I was in China. You, Leslie, is pretty much on the same level.

  • C O
    C O 8 months ago +1

    "Why are you saying China meddled, too?" You are really a poor interviewer. If you want to pin him on Russia, the next question will be: "so you said, too, does that mean you admit that Russia meddled in the election?" Instead, you say: "This is amazing, you are diverting the whole Russia thing."
    What does that reveal? That reveals that you have no interest in getting an answer, or finding about truth. You are only interested in pushing your narrative. You are so pathetic.
    This coming from a Chinese immigrant.

  • nozrati

    His followers want to see interviews with softball questions. They don't want to see him get worked because it exposes how truly unfit he is to be in the oval office. They suffer from cognitive dissonance and therefore they label any information that makes Trump look bad as fake news. Belonging to a political party is very much like Stockholm Syndrom.

    . Where is the FULL INTERVIEW ?
    You guys seem to be showing ONLY select edits of the interview. As if you people at 60 minutes
    are just trying to push a narrative.
    ..........But I'm SURE that's not what you're doing because that would just make you a propaganda network
    instead of an objective news reporting outlet. My mistake, just up-load the ENTIRE UN-CUT interview whenever
    you get around to it, you know, like after the news cycle talking about this interview is past. That way your liberal audience is less likely to ever see it but you can still call people on the right liers AFTER the fact, for pointing out the media tricks that the MSM uses to manipulate the masses while claiming to be an "un-biased news source".

    I truly fail to comprehend why most commenters love Trump. It's so obvious that, regardless of the interviewer's agenda and behaviour, Trump does not answer the questions he is asked. About Muller, Russia, and there's no excuse for that.
    It's as simple as that for me.

    When all the smoke clears in four years or so we will find that the extent of foreign meddling in our election is just "news" stories posted by Russian, Chinese, Israeli, Canadian, Japanese, British, Mexican and the EU stalwarts on unedited social media outlets. As well the use of social media quizzes and polls to gather detailed information to be sold to all candidates and the two parties. IOW, what has happened for decades and, as to the old powers like Britain, Spain and France, for over two centuries.
    If foreign money was used and foreign princes navigating inside campaigns, then we have as much or more evidence of that for Ms Clinton as Mr Trump. Heck even the big TV movie studios News outlets like CBS, Fox, NBC, Disney/ABC, TW are heavily owned by foreign investors, which used to be illegal, but has been fine for decades now.
    If Russia was late to the game, then the true outrage might be from the long playing meddlers like Britain, Israel and the Netherlands Antilles. Or, of course, Russia's big commercial and military rival China.

    The left can’t see why Trump won the election. They still have no idea. They still live in the liberal fantasy bubble. That their way of government is best, control, regulation, appeasement, small military, abortion promotion, anti free speech, forced equality, high taxes, anti religion, anti business, anti patriotism, loss of individual rights, anti oil, fake news...on and on and on...that some how republicans (the majority of Americans should think like they do! It’s amazing actually fun to watch them double down. The leftist ship is sinking and they are still pouring champagne. Trump is the antithesis of leftist ideology. He’s anti PC which is the same thing as anti leftist. And they hate him for exposing who they are, leftists
