Candidate Donald Trump on Sunday Talk Circuit….

♦ In museums, he is allowed to touch the art…
♦ The Holy Grail is looking for him…
♦ He never wears a watch because time is always on his side…
♦ He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels….

Normally a candidate would have to go to the various news show studios for the Sunday Talk interviews. Not Donald Trump. The Sunday interview hosts come to him.

First up NBC Meet The Press (Chuck Todd):

Next ABC This Week (George Stephanopolous):

      Trump has been listening to some very sane people in this subject. But he has failed to counter the classical claims of reduced gun violence with increases in other violence. He also fails to point out the obvious — putting guns in the hands of good people will not turn them into bad people.

    Saying, they are probably copycat murders, places a big portion of the blame at the feet of the media. The leftist media is in a quandry because they want to create hysteria around the incident for ratings and for political purposes, but they have to know the coverage may influence copycat murderers.

      zb, Unless all reports of the perp’s own statements are false, he admitted his was a “copycat” action to give him his “15 minutes of fame” . The Media isn’t going to admit to their complicity in this instance or others where similar motivations were eventually revealed. Nor are the elitists willing to acknowledge many/most of gun crimes are directly attributable to a lack of enforcement of gun laws on the books for decades ! Or, when these laws are enforced gun crime plummets !

      It was also interesting to watch another media dweeb completely at a loss without off-screen prompting unable to “go with the flow” . I give DT high marks for being patient with him.

        Donald Trump would reign supreme here, the whole place is built around golf. I’m hoping he announces he is coming here too – 110,000 republican votes to be had. There’s even a book about it called Leisureville. Jeb’s father spoke here so I’m pretty sure Bush will be coming also. My guess is “scare” them with Rubio and Carson and then bring in Bush to “rescue” them.

    These reporters keep asking him when or what it will take for him to drop out. Is this because Daniel Henninger wrote a whole column about it this week? Why aren’t they asking Jeb Bush these questions, as the guy is hanging in this race by the thread of his massive campaign chest and very little voter support?

      They are all at it – asking this question, so it clearly is co-ordinated. I think the reason is that they are trying to imply that he is not serious about the run and are hoping he answers in a way that they can use to make that point to the voters. To create the narrative, that this is all a bit of a lark, so don’t take him seriously and besides he will drop out at some stage.

      They can’t hurt his poll numbers, so they are trying a different tack, they really are insufferable!

      Toodd keeps looking away during questioning; once to the right and then a couple seconds longer to the left after pausing returns to look at Donald who never ever takes his eyes away from a direct look to the interviewer.

      Young Toodd has no right to be acting as if he is sophisticated or experienced enough to be asking questions of Donald that he does not even have a clue as to what is being said.
      IMHO, Donald is a true intellectual genius with outstanding skills. I am so impressed.

Decades of working phone calls is very evident. He is the best. He can do five interviews in the time it takes another candidate to go to a studio and do one. So smart. So efficient. So effective.

      I read somewhere early on that Trump insisted they come to him for their interviews as we have been observing that just about all of them do. I think it was because he can control the interview better and have his own videos or recordings done of the interview in case they misrepresent or edit what he says. You probably already know this but some here might not be aware.

    I tried listening to the Chuck Todd interview and got so angry with Chuck for playing the adversarial position being argumentative and interrupting, interfering with Trump’s answers, I couldn’t make it through 1/4 of the interview. Trump displays a tremendous amount of patience but last I heard, Chuck Todd wasn’t a candidate so what’s he doing debating Trump?

    Then I tried listening to Stephie’s interview with Trump. It was just as bad as he was debating Trump too….didn’t listen to that one but less than 5 minutes.

    IMHO, they are attacking his positions so vehemently, they are causing him to back off a little and I don’t like that either. I want him to be BIG FOOT and tell them what he thinks about a subject and then tell them to BACK OFF. I don’t think Trump should play polite pc footsy with any of them or allow them to debate him. Besides, they need him more than he needs them and he’s doing okay with his own campaigning as was plain to see in Tenn. yesterday. I guess Trump’s going for the free publicity but they are busy trying to make him look bad and it’s not worth it.

    • Don’t worry, Dixie! Politeness by Trump is one of his tactics! Too bad you didn’t watch to the end of the Todd interview. Trump’ revealed his next brilliant move right in broad daylight and Todd didn’t get it. Too funny.
      Mrs. Trump and Ivanka want more attention paid to women’s health, right? And they are going to get on the campaign trail, right? And no matter how many times Todd asked, Trump wouldn’t say when they would go out. Why?
      Why, you ask? When did Biden say he would announce? Right. He didn’t.
      Remember how Trump said several times, “I haven’t hit Biden yet.”
      Now put that all together and you’ll see the next brilliant Trump move. LOLOLOL!

    Noticed in the Meet the Press interview they did tight in headshots of Trump, barely showing his tie much of the time. Can’t help but think they thought it was disadvantageous to him. Also I really dislike Chuck Todd’s eye action. It makes him look weasely and dishonest. Whether this is his style all the time or not, I still think it indicates the age-old connotations and just speaks to his true character.

    Don’t find anything positive about Georgie’s (and co.) part of interview – did they cut answers, editing to their satisfaction? I don’t say they misrepresented Donald’s words, they just didn’t allow his full thoughts to be presented.

    One other thing, did Donald make him interview him in the hallway or lobby? Every time I heard the elevator ding I kinda smiled. No nice room for you Georgie… you gotta earn it!

      Inevitable that they would start the AD attacks as early as possible and also use the millions of dollars they have.

      AD attacks can work to a degree, but I have never been convinced that they are that effective. Yes there can be some killer ones, but a lot tend to be quite poor.

      Also this election cycle is likely different, as there is a lot of unrest and hatred for the establishment to an extent that I don’t think we have seen before. If that is the case, then I think ADs will be even less effective than usual.

      But at some stage, Trump will need to respond with attack ADs of his own, so he does not give the opposition too much control of the airwaves. Although considering he is pretty much on TV 24/7 at the moment, maybe he does not need to bother LOL.

      I tweeted Trump the warning from Sundance about what the media will try with Melania….I know SD is correct…if they can’t get Trump down with direct hits they’ll have no compunctions about trying to use his very glamorous wife. Due to spending a ton of time on conservative sites I am sure that unfortunately some of the media tactics will work.

    Took some more time to watch the Chuck Todd “Meet the Press” interview. Agree that Todd’s style of interruptions and trying to plant words in the mouth of his interviewee are annoying as well as transparent.

    Trump and Todd talked about “not covering” mass shootings. Thought about the recent IKEA killings in Sweden which have gotten very little coverage, possibly because they involve recent immigrants.

    In response, IKEA has pulled their knife displays, but when you are dealing with demented people, you have to try to get ahead of them with “human restrictions”. For example there are some places where a local home health agency has locked up the forks and knives, and the eating spoons are all soft-ish plastic. “Front-line” staff have to confront the difficulties of recognizing and dealing with mental illness in practical ways. However, this work is very low-pay/low-status with high turnover.

    A professional woman with advanced psychology and business degrees recently spoke about her first job, right after achieving an undergraduate psychology degree. Her job involved management of a 300-lb 6’3″ woman with violence issues who had already broken many facial bones of another caretaker during meltdown. All of these front-line staff were paid minimum wage, and some of them acquired substantial injuries and medical bills during the course of their employment. This particular woman moved on after 6 months because the risks of her job far outweighed the benefits.

    We will need to talk about these topics if we tackle mental health issues (and I hope Trump succeeds, and that happens! Chuck Todd appears to have limited “real-life experience”)


    • wondering999 says:

      meant to write “human rights restrictions”
      These are instituted as needed, and should always have term limits, and ending time when the restrictions are reconsidered. But when you are dealing with people who have a history of attacking with knives, forks, pens or whatever else at hand, it’s risky to decide to end the restrictions. I know a couple of people who have incurred many thousands of dollars of surgical repairs while trying to restrain violent, demented clients

    Seems to me Todd and George used the exact same interview outline. (Yes. I tortured myslef and watched both interviews in their entirety).

  31. R-C says:

    First off, Chuck Todd comes off as a TOTAL idiot, a rock with lips.

    Todd kept short-cutting Trump’s statements to make a colossal LEAP to an improper conclusion, and Trump kept dragging him back to reality.

    Over and over again, Todd butted his head against the wall, confessing to be “unable to understand” rather simple concepts. One wonders what it might take to “get through” to him.

    Like ALL liberals, he’s stuck in STATIC analysis; he has NO idea how baseline premises change based upon DYNAMIC policies. He did it on the economy: “I don’t know how you plan to “pay” for all the tax cuts.” He can’t see that decreased regulation, government waste, and tax rates change the baselines–the “old reality” no longer applies…except to numb skulls like Todd.

    The “new baselines” lead to fare MORE tax revenue being collected against a much lower cost structure–Voila! tax cuts “paid for” by increased revenues, resulting in the deficit going down. Too easy, really–you just have to actually DO it and follow through with discipline (ie, create a surplus and pay down the debt, as we all do in with our own finances).

    Todd did it again on “transportation and infrastructure”: “So far, you’ve proposed about 4 trillion in spending on roads and bridges. Where will that money come from?” Trump’s answer was brilliant. He called Todd out on his numbers, stating they are not correct–exactly right–and then he patiently tried to school Todd on how things get done in the real world.

    But, Todd just can’t wrap his static mind around a dynamic concept. The liberal media came up this price tag based upon their incorrect static thinking–not dynamic reality. “Oh, X has ALWAYS cost this much, so it will definitely cost at least this much in the future.” WRONG.

    And, Todd’s locked-down static mind-set also doesn’t take into account how Trump, the businessman’s businessman, will stock his cabinet with DOERS like him–execs who KNOW how to manage a department with an eye on the bottom line, etc. That act alone–of putting proven executives in place instead of political cronies–will pay untold dividends as they each wade into the “fat” stuffed away in their departments, snipping as they go. They will also KNOW how to let a contract that isn’t all fat and waste. Voila, MORE automatic savings, just based on “how Trump does business”. A Trump government will produce an actual budget based upon REAL numbers, not wasteful “baseline budgeting”.

    One more point: liberals like Todd think there is a finite pile of wealth in the world, and that’s it. It’s a matter of how it gets spread around. To them, Bill Gates’ and Steve Jobs’ wealth came from someone else’s pile of money–NOT from “thin air” as is actually the case. Those two geniuses produced a new and exciting product, the “personal computer”; the product of their intellect, that took the world by a storm and earned them BILLIONS in new wealth in the process. (Yes, Mr. Obama–they DID build that!)

    In regards to Chuck Todd, Trump might as well have been talking to an anvil.

    I don’t even acknowledge that other pipsqueak from ABC, so there is no way I will listen to that interview. I’m sure Trump also schooled the little Clintonoid, though.

    I loved the part when Stephanopolous wanted to embarrass Trump about his middle class tax cuts by mentioning that he made $250 million last year. Now, any politician would back track and try to downplay his wealth and look like an idiot doing so. HOWEVER, Trump completely turned the tables on Steph and CORRECTED him and said is was actually $605 MILLION DOLLARS. The reaction from Steph was priceless!!! A second there, he thought he got his opportunity to put Trump on the spot, but in fact he embarrassed himself with having the incorrect facts on Trump’s financial disclosure. Talk about in your face! Steph should have know Trump is not embarrassed about his wealth, he was probably offended that Steph under-reported his income.

    The benefit of telling the truth is that you don’t need to remember what you said the last time. I guess the correct number is $605 million. LOL!!!!
