Trump: I’m Not Thin-Skinned, I’m Fighting False Stories and Liars


PicMonkey Collage - TrumpAs Donald Trump continues his fight with just about everybody in the media, CBS Evening News previewed a question from Scott Pelley‘s interview for 60 Minutes about why he dishes out the heat in public fights, but can’t take any punches without immediately firing back.

“If you did a bad story on me for 60 Minutes, if it were a fair story I wouldn’t be thin-skinned at all,” Trump said.

After some more complaining about how horrible the media is to him, Trump, of course, said that there was a difference between bad stories and lies, and his beef is with the later. “They write lies, they write false stories. They know they’re false. It makes no difference. And frankly I don’t call it thin-skinned, I’m angry.”

While Trump also continued to say that Megyn Kelly‘s questions from the first debate were “unfair” Pelley grilled him about the fact that one night of tough questions led to a week at war with her and all of Fox News.

Naturally, Trump promised that he can handle “fair stories,” but that he’ll fight “harder than anybody” against false stories.

According to Trump, that seems to be happening pretty often these days.
