(National Sentinel)Â Fake News: POTUS Donald Trump sat down for an interview withÂ CBS News‘ “60 Minutes” for an interview that aired Sunday night in which he made no bones about the double standard the establishment media has adopted with him.
At one point in the interview, the president tripped up correspondent Leslie Stahl with frank talk about how she and others in the media covered his border separation policy versus that of President Obama, whose administration practiced the very same policy.
Stahl didn’t want anything to do with the discussion but POTUS made sure he got his digs in.
President Trump:Â â€œOne thing I really learned, I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it. Iâ€™m not saying that as a soundbite. I never knew how dishonestâ€¦â€
Lesley Stahl:Â â€œIâ€™m going to change the subject again.â€
President Trump:Â When you ask me a question like separation. When I say Obama did it you donâ€™t want to talk about it.
Lesley Stahl:Â No, no, Iâ€™m going to run your answerâ€¦
President Trump:Â Iâ€™m just telling you that you treated me much differently on the subject.
Lesley Stahl:Â I disagree but I donâ€™t want to have that fight with you.
President Trump:Â Itâ€™s OK. Leslie, itâ€™s OK. In the meantime, Iâ€™m President and youâ€™re not.
Stahl can “disagree” all she wants but fair-minded Americans know with certainty that the media treats this president far differently — as in, with far more negativity despite all of the progress he’s made thus far — than they ever did Obama.
In fact, a new study published last week shows that negative media coverage of this president is 92 percent even though the economy is booming, Wall Street continues to set records, unemployment is at historic lows, the administration has renegotiated NAFTA and other trade deals, and POTUS Trump has managed to get North Korea to the negotiating table.
