Trump’s ABC Interview Was Dumb

Despite being a solid Trump supporter on most issues, I must admit he’s not infallible. One example of that shortcoming was agreeing to a George Stephanopoulos interview last week. It was an unforced error for certain.

President Trump has called the media “the enemy of the people” a thousand times. And he was right a thousand times. Which begs these questions: why in God’s name did Trump (or his media team) allow a snake like Stephanopoulos within a mile of the White House? What value or upside could possibly result from granting such an interview? What in the world was Trump thinking?

The American media are driven by the notion of defeating and undermining the President in every way possible. They get up each morning thinking about ripping him to shreds in every way possible. The media go to bed each night and dream of crippling Trump, his family, and his Administration in every way possible.

Why, then, would Trump agree to crawl into a den of hissing and spitting vipers led by the likes of that “little wise guy” from ABC? The media work hard at crafting questions designed to make Trump say something they can use against him; Stephanopoulos is the King Cobra of firing such loaded questions at Republicans.

Truth be told: Trump has never been all that great at being swift on his feet and articulating clean, clear responses when responding to loaded questions in real time. He doesn’t seem to recognize a loaded question when he hears one and just blurts out something – anything – for the sake of responding instantly without thinking. And that’s what the media depends on and loves. It’s the exact same reason why Rudy Giuliani ALWAYS gets in trouble when being interviewed.

Stephanopoulos has never said anything positive or uplifting about Trump for the past four years. NEVER. Why would Trump give such a viper an exclusive interview in the Oval Office and a ride in the President’s limo? What good can come of it?

The answer: nothing good can come of it. Trump has been on his heels for the past week defending, clarifying, backsliding, and explaining his remarks about not calling the FBI when presented with oppo research by a foreign entity.

Giving media types a gold-plated opportunity to pepper you with loaded questions designed, with malice of forethought, to undermine you is exactly like a condemned man buying guns and ammunition for the firing squad assigned to execute him.

Not very smart.

While I agree with you it seems Trump always comes out ahead as people see, as you do, what a snake Democrat leftists like Stephanopoulos and the leftists media are.

The media is making the most they can of this, yet in the end, their beloved Mueller investigation and the entire "Russia Collusion" mantra they STILL keep harping on is based on what?  Yes, a dossier created by a FOREIGN AGENT.

The hypocrisy will not be lost on everyone. While I agree it was not one of Trump's finest bits, the potential is for more harm to the demoncraps than to Trump.

I see no point into giving your enemy ammunition.

As Rush was explaining about his time as a disc jockey, he was taught that playing a so-so or bad record could hurt you.  Whereas, whatever you did NOT play could not hurt you.

I think the analogy works in this case.  DON'T do it.

And, when Barr, Durham and Horowitz finish their reports how will this all look then? I'm starting to wonder if Trump might not have said this less 'off the cuff' and more as a calculated move? Honestly, this could end up hurting the Dems far far more than Trump.
