The playbook is starting to come together here. Donald Trump is a victim. He was victimized by Chris Wallace, by Savannah Guthrie, then Lesley Stahl came on the scene. Now he’s going to go to a second debate tonight, and Kristen Welker will be mean to him as well. So, to that end, Trump has just put over 37 minutes of the 60 Minutes interview done at the White House a few days ago on Facebook Watch.
I can’t embed it here for reasons I don’t understand, but hit the link in Trump’s tweet, and you’ll get there.

I think the subtext to this interview and any other interview or debate Trump has ever done where an intelligent woman is involved is: “What’s wrong with you? I’m a man. You’re supposed to show me deference — just because. It doesn’t matter if I’m an idiot. And you’re supposed to be getting your hair done or shopping. Why do you think you belong doing anything else? A man should be asking me these question. Or better, not.” you get the idea.
It’s going to be a lonnng night tonight — unless Trump decides to walk out of the debate. Let’s take a poll: What will happen at tonight’s final, and we mean final, debate?
- Trump berates the moderator as unfair;
- Trump still yells and screams even with the mic off;
- Trump walks out of the debate;
- Trump throws feces;
- All of the above.
12 more days of this — and then it will get stranger still, for another 78.
