Trump Threatens ‘Lamestream Media’ with Retribution if He Wins Presidency, Labeling It a Joke

Donald Trump watched President Joe Biden’s latest ‘60 Minutes’ interview, and he was apparently not impressed with it. He referred to it as a “JOKE” and claimed that the news program led Biden “along like a lost child.”

Joe Biden has made a number of appearances on ‘60 Minutes’ in recent years. Just last year, he made headlines when he appeared on the news program and declared, “The pandemic is over.”

He made another appearance on the show this week.

Much of Biden’s most recent ‘60 Minutes’ interview was spent talking about the current conflict going on in the Middle East.

But he also touched on a variety of other topics while speaking with ‘60 Minutes’ correspondent Scott Pelley.

It seems as though Donald Trump took the time to watch at least part of Biden’s ‘60 Minutes’ interview, and he revealed that he was—not surprisingly—not impressed with what he saw from Biden.

But to a larger degree, he was unhappy with the way in which ‘60 Minutes’ interviewed Biden in the first place, and he let this be known in a post.

They “Should Be Ashamed of Themselves”

For starters, Trump said that ‘60 Minutes’ producers “should be ashamed of themselves.”

He claimed they helped Biden by leading him “along like a lost child.”

And he didn’t stop there.

Trump continued to rip ‘60 Minutes’ for not pushing Biden harder on some of the questions that were asked to him.

In fact, he went as far as to suggest that ‘60 Minutes’ did a disservice to viewers by setting up their questions with the answers baked right into them.

“Each question contained the answer, and was so weakly and apologetically asked that it was a JOKE,” Trump said.

Trump also managed to take things one step further by essentially accusing ‘60 Minutes’ of putting together a puff piece on Biden that was meant to portray him in the best possible light. “[It] should be considered a campaign contribution to the Democrat Party,” Trump said.

Trump kept his criticism going by suggesting that CBS shouldn’t be allowed to air a show like ‘60 Minutes’ if all it’s going to do is put together pieces like the one created for Biden.

“Why should CBS get free public airwaves for this highly partisan ‘show’?” he asked.

And of course, Trump also took a moment to take direct aim at President Biden himself while also ripping ‘60 Minutes’ and CBS in the process.

They are protecting Biden even though he is the most corrupt and incompetent President in the history of the United States,” Trump said.

Trump Targeted Other Media Outlets Recently, Too

Trump is obviously no stranger to criticizing media outlets. He helped popularize the term “fake news” during his 2016 Presidential Election campaign.

But he’s seemingly been going out of his way recently to take shots at different media outlets more than ever before.

Earlier this year, Trump and his team referred to Fox News as “woefully derelict” for the way in which they chose to cover him showing up to help those in Ohio following a toxic train derailment.

He shared an internal report from his team that said, “Traditional outlets like Fox News are woefully derelict in their reporting of what you did, the word is still getting out there in a big way.”

Trump also criticized Comcast, NBC, and MSNBC for their coverage of him and the political scene as a whole just a few weeks ago.

“They are almost all dishonest and corrupt, but Comcast, with its one-side and vicious coverage by NBC NEWS, and in particular MSNBC, often and correctly referred to as MSDNC (Democrat National Committee!), should be investigated for its ‘Country Threatening Treason,’” he said.

When it comes to Comcast, NBC, and MSNBC, Trump even appeared to threaten the three entities with an investigation if he ends up being elected President again.

He said,  “I say up front, openly, and proudly, that when I WIN the Presidency of the United States, they and others of the LameStream Media will be thoroughly scrutinized for their knowingly dishonest and corrupt coverage of people, things, and events,”

Trump Has Been Unhappy With ‘60 Minutes’ Before

As it pertains to ‘60 Minutes,’ this is not the first time Trump has been angry with the news program.

He has agreed to be interviewed on the show on numerous occasions in the past.

But he walked off the set of one of these interviews back in 2020.

While being interviewed by longtime ‘60 Minutes’ correspondent Lesley Stahl in 2020, Trump got up and left in the middle of their discussion.

He accused Stahl and ‘60 Minutes’ of being both “fake” and “biased” at the time. He also refused to participate in a joint interview with Mike Pence on ‘60 Minutes’ that he had previously agreed to.

In the aftermath of Trump’s disastrous 2020 interview with ‘60 Minutes,’ his team announced it would be releasing raw footage of the interview that would show what made him so upset.

Trump seemed to take issue with Stahl asking him if he was “ready for some tough questions,” and he also called Stahl “so negative” at one point during the interview before getting up and leaving.

“That’s enough,” he said. “Let’s go.”
