Fox & Friends brutally mocked for complaining 60 Minutes interviewer ‘peppered’ Trump with questions

Published

on

Fox News Monday morning did its usual propaganda pitch for President Trump, defending the lying leader’s responses during his rare “60 Minutes” interview which aired Sunday night.

Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt told viewers, “people — many Republicans thought it was disrespectful and obnoxious,” referring to “60 Minutes” veteran journalist Leslie Stahl asking actually questions of the President of the United States, and expecting actual answers.

“Many people thought it made him look better because he did answer everything correctly,” she claimed, albeit falsely. “But she gave a tough interview, and when you’re a journalist, you want to ask tough, fair questions. Many people had a problem, though, with the fact that she was interrupting him a good bit.”

Stahl interrupted Trump when he lied. Good journalists are supposed to do that (cc: Chuck Todd, who should take notes.)

“Hats off to President Trump, who will go up against any journalist, even the ones who aren’t in favor of him, and answer all the questions,” Earhardt said, falsely.

Trump, since he admitted to NBC News’ Lester Holt that he fired Comey to end the Russia investigation, has all but never given an interview to any outlet that is not pro-Trump.

“It’s been a while since we’ve seen Trump’s rhetoric challenged in any significant way in a television interview,” The Washington Post’s Philip Bump said in an analysis of some of the questions asked and answers Trump gave during the interview.

Earhardt doubled down on Twitter, where there are actual people with reality-based opinion, unlike her fellow Fox News sycophants.

She tweeted that Trump was “peppered endlessly” with questions from Lesley Stahl during the “60 Minutes” interview.

Earhardt apparently was surprised – and dismayed – when the internet did not fall in line with her spin.

She deleted the tweet after being mocked – take a look at some of the responses:

In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.

According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.

"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."
