Trump, Upset About '60 Minutes' Questions: 'I'm President And You're Not'

Trump, Upset About '60 Minutes' Questions: 'I'm President And You're Not'

"In the corporate world Trump could say 'I hired these people, they do what I say", Carafano said. "I have no intention of doing that".

"I like General Mattis". Trump's interview was more or less par for the course, but that hasn't stopped cable news networks from picking it apart piece by piece. That the President's vanishingly rare appearance on a nonpartisan news program had resulted in a spectacle in which randomly assorted questions were bulldozed by a man eager to speak, and in which the interviewer generally left the viewers to decide what those answers meant without the benefit of meaningful follow-up, made the point clear.

Earlier on "Fox & Friends", former NYPD officer Dan Bongino said that Stahl's interviews are consistently "designed to advance a liberal narrative". "People leave. That's Washington".

Trump acknowledged that Russian Federation likely meddled in the election, but dismissed Moscow's actual influence in his presidential race against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. But it felt like a missed opportunity that both so many ardent Trump fans and so many in the hazy middle tuned into an interview with the President and found so much of what was put to him phrased in loose, conversational terms.

The answer that Stahl wants-and, one presumes, that most Trump critics want-is an unequivocal statement that the president will pull out of virtually all contact with the Saudis. She said, "Melania has said that there are still people in the White House that she doesn't trust, and that you shouldn't trust either". "I think I know more about it than he does", Trump said.

Stahl, interrupted, "I'm going to change the subject again". "Why should I pledge to you?" Scarborough echoed that sentiment, saying that Trump looked like "a big baby", and after a weird back and forth where they said the word "baby" like six times, Brzezinski added that the president looked "really, really ill-equipped and unfit to lead this country".

Stahl has interviewed Trump as a candidate, as president elect and now as president.

"There are some people that I'm not happy with".

TRUMP: - a very good relationship with him. "But I don't know that it's man-made". "When I say, 'Obama did it, ' you don't want to talk about it".

Lesley Stahl: No, it's like an embrace.

"Lesley, it's okay. In the meantime, I'm president-and you're not."
When he then offered, "They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than ..." Let it be whatever it is to get the job done.

I was part of a discussion Sunday on CNN's "Reliable Sources" about this major shift in Trump's media strategy.
