Sunday Talks: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin -vs- Fake News Operative Stephanopoulos

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin appears on This Week with democrat swamp guardian George Stephanopoulos.  Once again it takes half the interview to get past the Russia, Russia, Russia narrative to the larger more substantive issues of Trade Policy, Tax Reform, Budgets, Debt and Healthcare.

    I still don’t get the point of validating these garbage fake news peddlers with weekly interviews from the admin. I get occasionally going on but every week and this many? Of course the WH had an amazing trip so they’d thought they’d go and talk about that but of course the coordinated leaks purposely ruined that. They can’t cancel now because it would look bad so they just go on knowing it would all be Russia for the millionth time. Grrr. Crazy. I would love the WH to start doing some live streaming events with q’s from the American people and no reporters or some similar ideas.

      The ‘point’ is: the speakers provided by the administration are there to counter the bullshot spewing from the moderators.
      Should we prefer Senator ‘Shoemore’ grandstanding and crying?

        Since the audience is primarily comprised of hard-core lefties, I don’t see how subjecting our good people to drooling, fire-breathing dragons — so our people can be GRILLED on hot coals weekly — benefits us in anyway.

        They’re going to cry anyways, no matter what. Really all Trump supporters should know this by now. I’m not saying don’t give interviews but give select and fewer ones and give do more to get your messages out and bypass the media, like weekly live q&a’s and other streaming events and ideas.

      There is more than one way Mexico will pay for the wall. #1 not allow any remittances leaving our country, #2 building the wall with solar means Mexican will be buying the energy created, and #3 and by taking invaders/illegals on our soil will no longer be getting Welfare, EBT, WIC or anything else and that, too, will make a huge amounts (something like billions) that will pay for the wall. And these 3 are just a start. MSM are not reporters but cheap shot nuts and just want to follow the shadow state’s persistence in going against Trump and America.

        Believe me, those liberal so called talk show hosts are being paid by someone to keep the stew warm and boiling when necessary. All liberals and dems are being paid by the “fund” to keep up their good work. I believe that the good guys who go on and take the heat are winners and if it makes the audience puke well, so what! They need to hear the truth even if they still don’t believe.

        Look at the “Bible.” Words to live by, wisdom for every situation in life, and yet, millions reject it. Those who reject the Bible cite reason after reason why they don’t need to know and don’t want to know what it says, but it clearly is the greatest book ever written. Seek it out.

    Steffy, is dumber than a rock. Very Fake News! MSM has a lock on providing a circus environment for their clowns! Without taxpayer funding or fees from bundling charges stuck to cable subscribers as well as Soros handouts these nuts will starve to death.
    Do not watch any MSM Fake News as well as pulling the plug on these propaganda question readers all which lack mental ability.

    The interview was actually helpful to the president because Mnuchin was effective at highlighting the G20 accomplishments—in spite of Steph’s insufferable questioning.

    Every time Stephanopoulus appears on television a disclaimer should appear than he was in Bill Clinton’s White House. Same principle for Tapper, Todd, etc. I have no problem with opinion journalism, but presenting these people as unbiased truth seekers is just a fraud. We needed Trump to awaken everyone.

      I agree fully! When ABC initially hired Stephanopoulus to be an on air host who was historically to be unbiased this was the beginning of the MSN openly disregarding this long held tradition. From there it was all down hill to what we have now, fake news.

    Guess the issues don’t mean anything to Stephie – interference in the elections – now, the wall – he has no focus – just talking points that make no sense – go back to school, Stephie – as a reporter, you still have a lot to learn – Secretary Mnuchin gives him the substantiative progress from meetings with world leaders – I get the impression he really does not understand about what Secretary Mnuchin is saying – he does not get direct answers about tax reform (or the answers he wants) – because they are still working on the tax reform plan – next up – healthcare – sounds like he thinks they are getting nowhere – where does he gets his information – from CNN?

    The law of diminishing returns for MSM.
    imo
    MSM yammering on bout muh Russia…

    Those at the edge of their seats are looking for blood (figuratively)… They (MSM) said there would be blood (figuratively)… but, alas, there isn’t anything new.
    They watch again, and again and again ..and yep, nothing new bout muh Russia. Dang!!

    The expectation of hearing anything new fades, but they have to watch (I mean, come on…its MSM don’t ya know)
    So what they “do” hear (Eventually) (hopefully) that’s new, and piques their interest, rings a bell, hits close to home…(Eventually)… IS
    MAGA 🇺🇸
    The efforts (and patience) of President Trumps unparalleled administration and staff, against the Pavlovian nitwits, are loss leaders.

    Something our Presdent, and others, may be familiar with.
    imho.

    I believe that if Russia hacked anything regarding the election, it would have been Hillary and her team/cabal computers/cellphones which would further underline why phones were destroyed and a server “bleached” (but no matter bleach or not, it is out there!) so that Hillary, et al were stupid thinking they were the untouchables. Sorry, but the new modern “Ness” is taking you down. By the way, the Ukrainians are super great at computers and hacking. Probably will find those 30K+ missing emails out there in more than one place. Being a narcissist like Obama, Hillary thought she would win and was ignorant and careless and as the DNC itself was hacked, I think that Hillary electronics were also hacked.

      Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which there is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others’ feelings.People affected by it often spend a lot of time thinking about achieving power or success, or about their appearance. They often take advantage of the people around them. The behavior typically begins by early adulthood, and occurs across a variety of situations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_personality_disorder

    Treasury Secretary Mnuchin “gets” it, the real issues – financial system regulations and reciprocal trade

    “Properly structuring regulation of the U.S. financial system is critical to achieve the administration’s goal of sustained economic growth and to create opportunities for all Americans to benefit from a stronger economy. We are focused on encouraging a market environment where consumers have more choices, access to capital and safe loan products – while ensuring taxpayer-funded bailouts are truly a thing of the past.” ..Mnuchin.

    I think SM did a fabulous job handling little stephie! Too bad he couldn’t have been on with Chris Wallace as well. [Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think it went particularly well for Chris Wallace when he had SM on. Perhaps SM hasn’t been and won’t be invited back?]

    Trump and his cabinet are in a totally different league than the MSM cave dwellers. It must be so frustrating for them to listen to this stupid garbage every week as the move about MAGA…and answer these parochial questions. I give Trump and his cabinet a lot of credit for not treating them like the insects that they are.

    Evil is a description I do not use lightly. However Mr. HRC campaign donator and supporter righteously deserves this honor. He is evil through the core. Despicable and a True Deplorable (Hitlery’s own title) It is laughable to think they thought they could ignore all of this evil because she would become president. I hope she rots in prison along with her buddy enablers!

    Healthcare is priority before tax reform, but George leaves about 30 seconds on it at the end. Did George ever drill Obamas team like that? I think not.

    When @ the 7:57 mark, as Steph went into his 5th grade, nyah nyah routine about Mexico not paying for the wall, it would have been great if Mnuchin tersely replied with a classic Sundancism:

    “George, President Trump does not bluff”.

    Constant muh russia from the water carrying msm globalists is needed to JUSTIFY a Special Prosecutor and his army of paid minions investigating what has ALREADY BEEN INVESTIGATED.

    Besides, now that we have a nationalist President, the fact that Putin is also a nationalist is seen as threatening to the NWO potential ogliarchy. Oh, how they hate to be reminded that Obama and George W. Bush sought good relations with Russia. Yeah, no worries about Russia as long as OUR Presidents were globalist butt kissers!

    Georgie STAPHLOCOCCUS makes me curse like a sailor — Mnuchin should have shut him down, rather than answering the insanely repetitious leading “question.” Our guys need to perfect the art of swiveling the spotlight onto the ENEMY, and spotlighting what THEY ARE DOING and HOW.

    If you let an invalidator bully you into introverting and defending yourself, you will lose every time. Keep the focus on them and their rotten ways and their lies, and you win.
