President Donald Trump’s contentious interview with 60 Minutes anchor Leslie Stahl was posted to the President’s Facebook page Thursday morning, after he promised he would take a stand against who he said was a biased news anchor.
Stahl appeared to spend the majority of the interview attempting to gaslight Trump. She did so on both the recent revelations of possible criminal and unethical behavior in the personal laptop of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden and the FBI’s malfeasance in its Russia hoax investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The interview was fiery and Trump didn’t back down, despite Stahl’s condescending attitude with the President as he attempted to answer her questions.
“Leslie, let me ask you this, do you think it’s ok for the (former) mayor of Moscow’s wife to give the former Vice President’s son $3.5 million dollars? Do you think that’s Ok…Do you think it’s ok for Hunter Biden to say we’re giving the ‘Big Guy’ ten percent of this massive amount of money they’re taking in, do you think it’s ok?” asked Trump, after being told by Stahl repeatedly that there is no evidence to prove the Biden’s did anything wrong.
She said this, despite the mountains of evidence being published daily. First and foremost, the expose by the New York Post on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Trump continued, “where China has given them a billion and half dollars, where he’s supposed to negotiate? Let me tell you this, it’s the second biggest scandal – the biggest scandal was when they spied on my campaign…they spied on my campaign?
Stahl then says “there’s no evidence of that.”
Trump responds “Of course there is.”
Yes, of course there is and I’ve been writing about it and breaking stories on it for more than four years. It’s just that the mainstream media didn’t want to let you know the truth. It doesn’t fit into their elitist ideals of what they believe is right for America.
As for Hunter Biden’s emails, why won’t, and more importantly, why didn’t 60 Minutes try to verify any of it before the interviews?
The news show didn’t, in my opinion, because they appear to be in the tank for Biden.
Just saying it’s not true is good enough for them since the majority of mainstream media is on Biden’s side.

New York City Dems Push Law to Allow 800,000 Non-Citizens to Vote in Municipal Elections
The New York City Council will vote on December 9 on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections
New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.
“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.
“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.
Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.
Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.
Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”
The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
