12:33 — Here’s the clip of Trump’s last interaction with Stahl before walking out.

Has anyone tried to step inside Trump’s addled mind and figure out why he’d leak a damaging interview where he looks like a whiny weakling on the morning of the last debate?— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) October 22, 2020
Meanwhile, why does this creep me out?

12:22 — It was, I shit you not: MAGA2020.
Trump's Twitter account hacked after Dutch researcher guessed password https://t.co/WoMur1ptoG— Alex Needham (@alexneedham74) October 22, 2020
The same guy hacked the President’s Twitter account in 2016, too, when the password was “yourefired.”
12:00 — I think with 12 days to go, we should stop calling them Trumpdates. It’s not all about Trump. There’s another guy in this race, too. His name is Joe Biden. He’s a good guy. Here he is visiting Parkland survivors:

Speaking of Biden, he’s crushing it in Virginia right now, which will help those down-ballot candidates, too. Meanwhile, here’s Biden on 60 Minutes trying to play politics by not playing politics with the Supreme Court, which I don’t hate. In theory, I am against court-packing. In practice, pack. the. fucking. court. It’s the only way to compensate for the court packing engaged in by the Republicans, as well as the 8 years they stole from us in the Electoral College.
Joe Biden sounds so Fucking smart compared to Donald Trump. Also he DIDN’T storm out of the interview and then harass the journalist for the next four days.— Molly Jong-Fast🏡 (@MollyJongFast) October 22, 2020
Meanwhile, here’s Donald Trump on his 60 Minutes appearance, set to air this Sunday.
I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted “takeout” interview of me by Lesley Stahl of @60Minutes. Watch her constant interruptions & anger. Compare my full, flowing and “magnificently brilliant” answers to their “Q’s”. https://t.co/L3szccGamP— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2020
Trump stormed out of his interview yesterday after 45 minutes and did not return. He did release the unedited footage this morning. This is how it began:
How the raw 60 Minutes tape posted by Trump begins:— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 22, 2020
Stahl: You ready for tough questions?
Trump: Just be fair.
Stahl: Last time you were like bring it on.
Trump: "No, I'm not looking for that."
Stahl: "…But you're OK with some tough questions?"
Trump: "No, I'm not."
Having watched some of the interview now, it appears that Trump was mostly mad about the fact that Stahl was asking him “tough questions” and he didn’t want to be asked tough questions, because Biden wasn’t asked tough questions, so it’s not fair! “He’s never been asked a question that’s hard,” Trump whined. “You started with me, and the first thing you asked was, ‘Are you ready for tough questions’? That’s no way to talk. That’s no way to talk?”
He then ended the interview. He walked out because Stahl told him she would ask tough questions, and then she asked tough questions, and he’s upset that Biden gets “softball after softball.”
The final debate is tonight, and ahead of it, Trump has been attacking the moderator Kristen Welker all week. Mics will be cut off during the two-minute answer sessions, so we might actually get to hear some uninterrupted answers.
Finally, here’s Rudy this morning — in a now-deleted tweet — referring to Borat as a real person.
You can delete this all you want but I still have a screenshot of you talking about Borat like he’s real pic.twitter.com/EyUwrh6dWY— broti gupta (@BrotiGupta) October 22, 2020
I saw the movie. I saw what Giuliani did. Like a corpse fondling itself. It kept me awake last night. Haunted by the image. *shudders*
