On Tuesday, following reports that President Donald Trump stormed out of a “60 Minutes” interview with Lesley Stahl for an unknown reason, the president tweeted that he is considering releasing footage ahead of CBS, to prevent reporters from spinning the “FAKE and BIASED” interview.
Commenters on social media laughed at the president for telegraphing his apparent fear over the content of the exchange.
Lay off the drugs man.

Trump is decompensating
He’s long possessed a sociopathic disregard for others but he’s now hurting himself:
Walking out of interviews, canceling a debate, attacking Fauci & Stahl
He’s in a v. bad place—if he loses on 11/3, he cld act out in ways NONE OF US can come back from

no one forces him to interview. He is spiraling and spiraling down the drain.

Just to recap:
Chris Wallace was so mean!
Savannah Guthrie was so mean!
Kristen Welker will be so mean!
Leslie Stahl was so mean!

If Trump hates the media as much as he claims, it’s strange that he gives them so many exclusive interviews. It’s almost as if he came from that world himself.
