Lou Dobbs’s Trump interview is a masterpiece of sycophancy and nonsense

POTUS forgets why his tax plan is good for the middle class.
The last time President Donald Trump sat down with a nonpartisan journalist, he revealed to NBC News’s Lester Holt that his administration had been lying about why he fired FBI Director James Comey. The real reason, Trump revealed, was an effort to stymie the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election. That compelled the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller whose team has caused all sorts of trouble for Trump ever since. Consequently, Trump has spent the past few months sequestered with friendly journalists conducting softball interviews.
Yet precisely because the softball format leads to such easy questions, Trump’s frequent inability to answer them reveals the depths of his ignorance better than any tough grilling possibly could.
