First of all, keep in mind that Holt was interviewing the President of the United States. Now you can love or hate Donald Trump, that's your prerogative, but if you are an American citizen you are expected to respect the position that he holds. And treating the office with respect means that when you have a face-to-face with the officeholder you identify him as Mr. President. That's true with any President and has been the case with interviews of the President since the position was created by the Constitution, yet Holt repeatedly refused to live up to that standard. And even more so, he repeatedly interrupted the President in mid-sentence, trying to silence him when he didn't hear the words he was seeking. It was as if Holt thought himself to be a prosecutor going in for the kill, yet Holt can't even uphold the standards of a journalist, someone who by definition seeks the facts. Frankly, I don't care what Holt thinks, but I just want him to live up to his profession and he, and sadly most others who also call themselves journalists today, fail to do so.
Regarding the interruptions, Holt at one point did so to the President nine times in under three minutes. He obviously wanted to get under Trump's skin but it didn't work. Trump refused to yield the floor and continued to make his points. And in the end, Old Lester failed in identifying any smoking guns. He tried to make a big deal of Trump having dinner with Comey and even of his calling Comey. Get this straight, Lester, the President of the United States has the right to talk with any official of the government. And if you think the President in doing so broke any laws, kindly cite the specifics of the charge or just let the man speak. You have nothing and you know it, and your interview techniques show just who you are.
Frankly, I don't know why the President even gives NBC the time of day. We all know that this network and CNN in particular are on opposite poles from Trump and have no desire to give him a fair shake. But he's a fighter and I guess that's why he appeared.
And as an oh, by the way, for those of you so hellbent on creating a crisis where there is none, there is special news. Last night it was learned that both Committee Chairman Grassley and ranking member Feinstein admitted publicly that Comey had told them that the President of the United States was under no personal investigation regarding Russia. End of story, so let's wrap this stuff up. Of course, if you consider the Washington Post and the New York Times your Bible, then you won't believe this. But then again, you probably don't believe the real Bible as well.
Have a great day anyway.
