Donald Trump Morning Joe interview

Donald Trump spent more than twenty minutes talking to Joe Scarborough and company on Monday morning.

At the very end of the interview, some guy asks him again about the video, and Trump insists that he saw people in New Jersey celebrating, that it was not somewhere else in the world, and that many people have told him they also saw it in New Jersey.

The rest of the interview is mostly about Muslims. Joe Scarborough keeps asking him, why is it important to keep mentioning that Muslims have celebrated terrorist incidents? The implication from Joe is that the correct thing to do is to hide these incidents from the people, because the people are stupid and will become incited to hate Muslims if they know the truth, and it’s the responsibility of the elites to make sure that doesn’t happen, because hating people on account of them being Muslim is horribly evil. Of course Joe didn’t say any of that, but it’s what I am pretty sure he thinks. It’s what everyone in the MSM thinks.

If Trump really believes that there’s a video, maybe he should offer a very large reward for it? Perhaps, the guy who knows about it is a liberal type who hates Trump (because most people in the MSM fall into that category), but perhaps greed for a hundred-thousand-dollar reward could change his mind.

  1. Crazy theory: Trump already has the video, but is holding it back, to rope-a-dope the media like Obama rope-a-doped him with the birth certificate.

    • “birth certificate”. It was an obvious fraud. In any case, as Lawrence Auster said at the time, Trump’s insistence on seeing the certificate proved the birther’s central claim correct which was that Obama had never before released the long form certificate to the public as leftists and apologists claimed he had for years prior.

  2. If it did happen roughly along the lines Trump says there must be video somewhere. Liveleak?

  3. This is exactly why I can’t support Trump. Every journalist and pundit in this country is currently obsessed with trying to either prove or disprove what was obviously an absurd exaggeration of some minor local incident no one had ever heard of or cared about until now.

    It’s so literally childish. Trump acts like a 12 year old. Next is he going to claim he can “eat a million hotdogs” and force the national media to spend a week investigating the plausibility of that ?

    • Although I think Trump (in general and in this case) is wrong from a strategic point of view does it make sense to admit it now. Is there any type of voter, who isn’t supporting Trump currently, that will be persuaded to do so by his ability to accept he was wrong ?


      December 1, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    • The problem with that line of reasoning is that you assume that there is an alternate candidate worthy of support. There isn’t. The sad reality is that Trump is all we have.

      • I don’t think I can really vote for this giant child-man in the general election. I’ll probably just write in Steve Sailer for president, the dean of American grown-upness.

    • “This is exactly why I can’t support Trump. Every journalist and pundit in this country is currently obsessed with trying to either prove or disprove what was obviously an absurd exaggeration of some minor local incident no one had ever heard of or cared about until now.”

      Who’s fault is that? Trump’s or the media’s? It’s the media that’s gone crazy over this issue. They absolutely didn’t want Trump to mention it at all, because after a week of calling Trump a liar, if you actually pend them down on it, they will admit there were Muslims celebrating 9/11 in New Jersey. Whether it’s a 100 or a 1000, they didn’t want any discussion of the issue at all.

      • It’s the fault of both. Trump is exaggerating. Therefore, he is not telling the truth; and if someone says he’s lying, then they’re not telling the truth, either. No use in trying to Trump doesn’t create some of his own problems. He’s a good politician, though, in that things he says help him more than they hurt him.

  4. Forced integration of different peoples who CAN’T get along is act of cynical hatred.

    It reminds of me when I was kid at an overnight camp and I got into a fight with another kid who was giving me shit. At that night’s campfire huddle, the issue was discussed. I said there would be no problem if the other kid just stayed the hell away from me and didn’t talk to me. To me, this was the obvious and respectable solution.

    The counselors (and the rest) chimed in about how wrong and illogical that was and that we *must* get along and become friends. Of course, this did not work and just caused more misery.

    I sensed then that everyone else’s zest to force us together wasn’t just a dopey kumbaya instinct; it was a malicious and controlling instinct veiled under a “let’s all be friends” veneer.

    It’s simple: you separate/segregate peoples who are different and who categorically can’t get along. To deny this right is an act of hatred and is asking for unending violence.

    • Tell me about it! Almost killed my Tajik today. The guy suddenly goes:
      – ‘They write about Clinton, but why don’t they write anything about Catherine the Great? ‘
      -‘ What’s there to write? ‘, I go.
      -‘ She died having sex with a horse. ‘
      -‘ Says who? ‘
      -‘ Everyone knows. She liked big dicks, until no dick was big enough and then they got her a horse and she died having sex with it. Never heard of it? ‘
      -‘ Never ‘
      -‘It’s one the Internet, I’ll show you ‘.

      He searched the Internet for half and hour and found nothing. Then he shut up. He was a little shaken by how visibly mad I was. I’m not a monarchist, but this bastard is insulting Russia! I hope Trump will get rid of these degenerates ASAP and ship them back to where they came from!

      • Catherine the Great didn’t have sex with animals, but she did become a cougar later in her life.


        December 2, 2015 at 1:23 am

      • your Tajik is correct about this perhaps scurrilous rumor

      • What matters is her conquest of the Crimea and not her personal life. Look, this is a perfect example of incompatible cultures. My Tajik tells me that in his village they aill have sex with donkeys, so now he imagines that an empress needed a real stud. They are animals, who project their bestiary on others. America doesn’t need them.


        December 2, 2015 at 9:02 am

      • I don’t know how much you’re just playing up a persona but everything you’ve ever written here indicates that you’re incompatible with this country (except for your Joe the Plumber style delusions about becoming a millionaire that’s unfortunately very American)

        I do troll a little, but just a little. You are right, I’m not a perfect fit for this country, but nor am I a perfect fit anywhere else. It’s just the way it is. Nothing can be done about it. I wouldn’t go so far as to say incompatible, though.

      • @Lion

        Actually, I think I’m much more than that, but I don’t want to really get into it. Generally, when criticised or dised, I try to look at myself from the critic’s viewpoint assuming that there can’t be smoke without fire. I take Loyd’s comments in this spirit. There is some truth in what he is saying, but not a whole lot. What he calls ‘unfortunate American delusion’ is the greatness of American spirit and in my eyes is an admirable trait. Not to see it is to be pretty disconnected from the core essence of America, it doesn’t make him incompatible with this country, though, but it makes one wonder….


        December 2, 2015 at 6:12 pm

      • Lion, I seem to recall a bunch of comments where Yakov says he doesn’t feel obligated to pay taxes. I don’t consider him an honest citizen contributing to society.

        Yakov – I agree it is important. Society needs many different types, optimists and pessimists but especially realists. And optimists shouldn’t be manipulated into accepting policies that benefit their hypothetical future rich selves at the expense of their present selves and other poeple in their position.

      • Lloyd, yep true about taxes. I feel ambivalent about it, but avoid them like death, whenever I can. But then again, doesn’t the commenters here keep saying that the money is better left in people’s hands then given to the government? Isn’t it especially true when those are rough, brused, cut, dirty prole hands that actually had earned that money?


        December 2, 2015 at 7:37 pm

      • Yakov does enough good just by his in this very thread.


        December 2, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    • Also, you mates are supposed to be HBDers and as such to understand that outstanding individuals like Catherine The Great, Albert Einstein, George Washington or Napoleon have an extremely high energy level and as the result heightened sexual drive. This comes with the territory, so to speak. It’s their achievement that’s important. Instead, you start defending my Tajik, who is just an animal.

  5. I seem to remember reports of people celebrating on the rooftops in NJ, but I can’t remeber if I actually saw film of it.

    In the Middle-East this never happened either.
    Shortly after the event CNN and the other networks stopped showing this footage.

    I do remember the footage of the Palestinians throwing pieces of candy to the children in the street.
    I wonder if Trump isn’t conflating some of this with his NJ memories

    • The clueless reporter is asking: ‘what are we to make of it?’ He doesn’t know. Nobody knows. I hope Trump knows. This is very simple. They celebrate the death of thousands of Americans? Fine. For every American you kill 10 of their’s and give them something more to celebrate. You do it every time. Always. Let’s see them dancing and waving victory signs. I hope Trump understands this. Oh, and of course you discontinue all financial aid. And you do it immediately.

  7. I remember an anchor saying on the night of, or day after 9/11, that there was a huge candlelit vigil in sympathy in Tehran. Did that happen?

  8. Well Trump is vindicated with a CBS news broadcast that has surfaced from the time showing reporting on the celebrations in New Jersey.

    CBS did not release their own archives as they lied about what happened.

    Media trust in America registers at 40%. It sickens me that media trust should even be in the double digits.

    I derive some relief from the fact that news media is regarded as a positive for the country by only 25% of Americans, lowest of ten nongovernmental institutions rated.
