CBS Interviews Walker But Only Wants to Talk About Trump

CBS Interviews Walker But Only Wants to Talk About Trump

“Is this appropriate language for a Republican candidate?”

Scott Walker appeared on CBS This Morning Friday to talk about his campaign and how he did in the debate.

Oddly enough, as soon as Walker started talking about Hillary Clinton, Norah O’Donnell wanted to shift the conversation to Donald Trump and obviously wanted Walker to answer for Trump’s words and actions.

Walker handled it well and tried to steer the conversation back to his campaign but O’Donnell persisted. She clearly wanted Walker to comment on Trump.

Partial transcript via NewsBusters:

Rather than accept Walker’s rejection of Trump’s language, the CBS host continued to press the governor over Trump’s comments and demanded that he “denounce” his opponent:

You know that your own party did a full dissection of what happened in the last presidential campaign about how the Republican Party does among women and how they do among minorities. If you have the leading candidate in the Republican Party saying those things about women, when it was the largest gender gap in history in the last presidential election, can you denounce those comments here today, or is it just part of a freewheeling debate?

Here’s the full video:

We’ve seen this scenario played out a thousand times. Anything the media sees as a vulnerability for Republicans is asked about repeatedly and every Republican is forced to comment.

The media never does this with Democrats. No one from the MSM is forcing Democrats to comment on the disgusting Planned Parenthood videos. No one in media forced Hillary Clinton or any other Democrat to comment on Bernie Sanders’ outrageous 1970’s column about rape when it recently surfaced.

It’s an unfair tactic and the media will keep using it against Republicans for as long as it works.

Anything to deprive a Republican candidate of a chance to speak for himself.

That was a masterful Walker response.

The GOP candidates response to this kind of nonsense should be a lengthy monologue on Kill Black Babies/Planned Parenthood and the butchery and sale of baby parts. Since these interviews are live, and since the LSM won’t air the story, this is a three for one: knock Hillary as not caring for black lives; get the story out to the watching LINFOVs; teach the LSM not to feck with GOP candidates. Likely only Cruz and Fiorina will do something like this. The rest will be polite gentlemen who will answer the question and try to kill Trump by LSM.

    Yes. These people are not journalists. They are given a narrative to sell. Take control and fight back with your own narrative. It is a street fight. You must be tougher than the other guy or you lose.

      You have got it. CBS is NOT a news organization. CBS is totally unprofessional.

      We all know the LSM has been in the tank for the ‘rats for decades. They have to be managed, though, somehow.

      Walker answered artfully, showed no hesitation or fear and stayed right on his message. I’d like to see a little more passion. Walker is the type to walk softly and carry a big stick. He’s not a verbal “pissing match”, flashy kind of guy. He is the tortoise in The Tortoise and the Hare allegory. But in such a large field of candidates, I think he should show a bit more fire. He’s genuine and a good man, but I’d like to see a little more of the warmth and passion he shows at his campaign stops show up in his TV interviews. A candidate can’t be a snoozer at this point with such a large field. The governor should spice it up just a bit.

    Yes, absolutely. But not many, if any, R’s have the smarts and balls to do it.

Talk about “appropriate language”… Remember when Hillary denied calling someone a *FJB*? Who believes her denial? I certainly don’t.

The fawning lazy media never fails to disappoint.

The media loves Trump because he fits their narrative of the typical Republican- an old, rich, misogynistic white guy who made his money as a crony capitalist. They want him and not one of the much younger and more dynamic Republican candidates. After all, Trump can hardly claim that Hillary is too old and corrupt to lead the country. He’s from an even older vintage.

    They know that Trump is off-putting to a great many of the independents (and nominal Democrats) who could warm to Walker or Rubio or others in the unusually large and deep GOP field facing a weak Democrat slate.

    They know it’s gold for Dems to have a veritably cult-like devotion surrounding a celebrity of swaggering brashness who pulls attention and support away from the most solid conservative candidates with a chance of getting those necessary independent votes.

      Hillary has several major weaknesses, age, an unpleasant personality, a reputation for corruption, a sleazy family situation and a record of political incompetence. A Trump nomination takes every one of those issues off the table.

      Trump is of an even older vintage, can be even more petulant and made his fortune in perhaps the most corrupt, crony laden business around. Unlike Hillary’s martyr act, which many women identify with, Trump lost his fist wife due to an affair, then married the woman he’s been cheating with. When that didn’t last, he then married a model 24 years his junior. He’s sex life has been on almost as many tabloid covers as Bill. He also has zero experience in government.

      It is hard to imagine a worst candidate to oppose Hillary.

Prior to this year (2012), the largest gender gap in Gallup polling history was 18 points in the 1984 election that saw Republican Ronald Reagan win a second term in office. Majorities of both men and women voted for Reagan in that election, but he won among men by 28 points (64% to 36%) and among women by 10 points (55% to 45%). It is unclear to what extent the presence on the Democratic ticket of Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman to be a major party’s nominee for vice president, had on the vote of women that year.

So Democrats now more than ever play the “war on women” card, which I guess works for the LIV.

Of course Democrats have the same “gender gap”, it just goes the opposite way. Why do they hate men?

Perhaps the “War on Men” could be a point for Republicans? When two drunk coeds have sex, why does the male wake up as a rapist and the female is automatically the victim, even if she led him to her room? War on Men.

    It occurred to me, Walker could have responded to the gender gap thing:

    Yes, what are you Democrats going to do about your gender gap problem, Norah? Why don’t you appeal to real men?

    NC Mountain Girl in reply to Midwest Rhino. | August 9, 2015 at 3:04 pm

    Older women are a far more reliable voting block than the young men who have suffered the most under Democrat policies. Their registration rate is low and they don’t always show up to vote.

    The candidate that an increading number of pundits compare Trump to, Jesse Ventura, greatly benefited from Minnesota’s liberal voting laws on election day registration.

NC Mountain Girl | August 9, 2015 at 2:55 pm

Hillary has several major weaknesses, age, an unpleasant personality, a reputation for corruption, a sleazy family situation and a record of political incompetence.

And those are her good points. She only goes downhill from there.

On the Trump thing, Levin has been saying Megyn was way off base, and these were planned attacks from above. That may be, and they may want to get rid of Trump and push Bush as the “adult” since Bush got more questions than Walker, and more time.

But Levin was defending Trump’s statements as innocent, and I don’t think they were, especially not the “on her knees” thing. It was said innocently by the girl (probably, unless it was all scripted), and Trump played it up the other way, as seems clear from the VH1 description.

“Excuse me, you DROPPED to your knees?”, Trump directs towards Brande.

“Yes,” Brande responds.

It’s at this point that you can see the wheels of Trump’s dirty mind turning, verrrrrrry slowly yet very surely. A full six seconds, which is an ETERNITY of time in the rapid-paced world of reality television editing, expire before Trump responds, “It must be a pretty picture. You dropping to your knees.”

Trump could have let it pass as innocent, but “he went there”. Not only does he sound like another Clinton style dirty old man, but he was not afraid to push that image on this young woman on national TV.

    here’s the link, and a little more. This was written in March 2013, not last week.

    The camera cuts to Brande, who gives a pissed-off smirk to Donald, before cutting over to the reliably slimy Piers Morgan, who sycophantically chuckles at his mentor’s unforgivably horrible sexist comment. The camera then cuts back to Trump, who looks at Morgan approvingly and gives him a knowing nod, the kind he’s likely given thousands of times to his cronies in the oak-lined locker rooms of the private clubs he frequents.

    It’s horrible enough that we have to put up with Trump’s status as the world’s most obnoxious Birther, but do any of his viewers —let alone contestants— really have to put up with boorish behavior like this? We think not. There’s nary an office place in the world where a comment like this would pass without some sort of reprimand. In the words of Best Week Ever, that’ll be enough, Donald Trump. That’ll be enough.

      Apparently you miss the fact that it is a freaking TV show, and trump is one of the actors.

        Midwest Rhino in reply to Barry. | August 9, 2015 at 11:04 pm

        Are you talking about the old man telling the young woman how much he’d like to see her on her knees, or the debate performance and his whole campaign?

          “It was said innocently by the girl (probably, unless it was all scripted), and Trump played it up the other way, as seems clear from the VH1 description.”

          Your comment, “(probably, unless it was all scripted)” might be a clue. TV show. Hmm, are TV shows scripted, planned? Do they often have provocative wording, views to entice the viewers and get the ratings up?

          You trump haters are so full of red blood in your eyes and wherever that you are unable to see the truth about anything.

          Midwest Rhino in reply to Midwest Rhino. | August 10, 2015 at 1:32 pm

          it should have been a hint to you that I understand it’s a TV show, it MIGHT have been scripted, which doesn’t make it any better. It was certainly approved by the Donald to “go there”.

          Same with the blood in her eyes … that expression stands alone, but he added “where ever”. He says he’s so smart … then claims he meant “nose”. yeah right, he’s so smart, but he couldn’t think of nose … blood coming out of her nose …

          I’m glad Trump used Coulter’s info to put the open border problem in the spotlight. Now he can fade away, since he plans to make a very quick route to bring the 11 million back quickly as citizens.

          They “go there” in just about every tv show/movie.

          I am glad that you, along with the whole left wing party are able to discern what trump meant by “wherever”. The truth is you have no idea, some lefty had to tell you.

Donald expands his constituency!
That that, Bernie

Hard to believe that so many people buy into the “facts” and “truth” that the MSM puts in front of them.

Then they go on to say that a scripted, reality TV show, where when bad things are said about someone to get audience reaction (and ratings!) they accept those things to be true as well! Even when it’s obvious to a blind man that this scripted, exciting, huge-rating TV show was all fake and phony, from the opening to the close. I never knew that people had such faith!

I’m not referring to the Celebrity Apprentice- I’m talking about that dispicable hit-job, the ambush attack, that was supposed to be a “debate.” Usually moderators don’t have venom dripping from their lovely fangs, in actual debates.

I guess lawyers are just too used to arguing either side of a case. It’s disappointing, but not unexpected; so let’s get back to whether Tweedledum is preferable to Tweedledee. They’re both bought and paid for, so life will go on as usual whichever gets elected. Too bad about the country, but at least no one will have their feelings hurt!
