Donald Trump gave his first interview with “60 Minutes” since being elected president, and it made headlines. Lesley Stahl interviewed him, and Trump gave his thoughts on a variety of issues. But what happened during the interview left a lot of Americans angry.
Stahl did not behave as an unbiased journalist during the interview. She frequently spoke down to Trump, and asked misleading questions.

Stahl also implied that Trump supporters are committing hate crimes across the country, and had Trump tell them to stop. She didn’t mention that many of the hate crimes turned out to be hoaxes.
The interview made her look petty, while Trump appeared calm and willing to compromise. But still, it’s no wonder his supporters are angry. They’re tired of being smeared by the media as racist, sexist homophobes, and it’s that exact bias that helped Trump get elected. Have they not learned their lesson?
