WASHINGTON – Listening to President Trump recently, the question arises: What’s he got against babies?
“I’m not a baby,” Trump felt compelled to assure CBS News’ Lesley Stahl – twice – during his 60 Minutes interview.
First, on the subject of Kim Jong Un, when Stahl described his “cruel kingdom of repression, gulags, starvation,” asking, “This is a guy you love?” Trump: “Sure. I know all these things. I mean – I’m not a baby. I know these things.”
Second, on the question of whether he trusts his own White House staff. “I’m not a baby,” Trump assured Stahl. “It’s a tough business. … This is a vicious place.” Then, on Friday, The New York Times’ Emily Cochrane asked Trump what evidence he had “that these are hardened criminals that are coming to the United States,” Trump shot back, “Oh please. Please. Don’t be a baby. OK?”
