Here’s another righteous thread by @AG_Conservative, who is, by the way, not a Trump apologist by any stretch — but the mainstream media make it awfully difficult not to side with the guy when they pull stuff like this.

As everyone knows, President Trump was a guest on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” Sunday night, where he was interviewed — and interrupted — by veteran journalist Lesley Stahl.

CBS News, of course, had to post some tweets the following day, and of course, they were framed to make Trump look as insensitive as possible. Sure, no one in the media batted an eye when Barack Obama declared, “I won,” but how could Trump be so callous as to say it didn’t matter how Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was treated, because in the end, “we won.”

Let’s zoom in a bit; so the exchange goes:

* * *

Lesley Stahl: Do you think you treated her with respect?

President Donald Trump: I think so, yeah. I did.

Lesley Stahl: But you seem to be saying that she lied.

President Donald Trump: W– you know what? I’m not gonna get into it because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won.

* * *

In other words, it sure looks like Trump was doing his best not to call Ford a liar and just move on.

When it comes right down to it, one of them had to be lying. But honestly, a lot of people have done a lot of tip-toeing around the question out of respect for the accuser. But Stahl really seemed to want to get Trump saying, “Yes, I believe Ford was lying” on national TV. And think about it: there’s no way that comes out sounding good for the president, no matter what. At least they got something to work with.

Honestly, journalists, that’s all we’ve been asking for: the who, what, why, where, when, and how. That’s it.

If she “proved” her Native American heritage. But that’s another story.
