“Let me answer the questions without challenge or you’ll never get another interview and I’ll talk to your boss, all right?”
Obama gave an interview to a local reporter in Texas (via NiceDeb). The interview struck me as fairly ordinary, although the reporter gently tested Obama on a couple of the answers. There was nothing in the interview which struck me as disrespectful or anything other than what a reporter should be doing.
The revealing moment came at the end, when Obama was taking off his microphone and commented to the reporter:
“Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?”
Here is the screen shot (video is here).
