Hey, liberals, you want some fake new? Here is some fake news for you. Kurt Eichenwald, employed at Newsweek as a
liar faux journalist. He is also a Trump-hating liberal douche nozzle, an MSNBC contributor (go figure), and a certified moron.
In the following interview, Tucker Carlson asks Eichenwald a simple yes or no question, was Donald Trump institutionalized in a mental hospital in 1990, as Eichenwald alleges.
Watch as Eichenwald obfuscates and dodges the question, demanding that he be allowed to answer the question that he refuses to answer. It is a very simple yes or no question, Kurt. You can answer it in a single word.
Carlson laughs in Eichenwald’s ridiculous face as the liberal assclown attempts to play verbal hamster wheel.
Kurt Eichenwald is the sort of sickening creep that passes for serious journalism at Newsweek and MSNBC. Sad! Following is an abbreviated transcript and video of the interview, followed by a video of the full interview.
TUCKER CARLSON: (On) September 12 of this year, you said, this is a tweet, “I tweet so many attacks on the bad, lazy work of the press, I doubt I’ll ever be voted to win a journalism award again,” which is also a humble brag by the way.
But the next day you say, quite ironically, and I’m quoting, “I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records.”
Do you see a little irony that on one day you’re criticizing the press for being lazy and inaccurate, and the next day you yourself are being lazy and inaccurate?
KURT EICHENWALD (after laughing at the question): Let me give you what the question is that a journalist would ask.
EICHENWALD: A journalist would ask the question, “Why did you send that tweet?” I will answer it for you now.
I’ve been covering Donald Trump. I started writing about him in the mid- to late-1980s. At that time, I obtained his medical records, from his real doctor, not from this guy he sent (this year) with a medical report then (Question: Wasn’t getting someone else’s medical records illegal even back in the 1980s? — Ed.).
It showed that in 1982, he was given a very heavy prescription for an amphetamine derivative, and he remained on that prescription for many years. I knew from people inside the Trump organization that they were deeply concerned about his condition, that he was getting reckless, that he was getting impulsive, that he wasn’t sleeping, that he was speaking with these sort of great variations of grandeur that he could do anything.
And in 1990, because he did so many deals that were so reckless, his whole empire was going into bankruptcy. And he was going through a divorce, and I was told that there was an — now, let me say, I’m talking about reporting process. So I’m saying here is what I was told.
CARLSON: Was he in a mental hospital or not in 1990? You allege that he was. Was he or wasn’t he? He wasn’t, was he?
EICHENWALD: Can I, Can I, I mean, Tucker, if you don’t want me to answer the question, tell me so —
CARLSON: I’m asking you the question. Was he in a mental hospital in 1990 or not?
EICHENWALD: — and then we can move on. But I would like to answer the question. You’ve made an accusation. Let me answer it.
CARLSON: No, I read your tweet.
EICHENWALD: So in 1990, I was told that there was, essentially a breakdown — I’m giving reporting process here, okay? — Clearly I didn’t print it. I also thought Trump was a private individual, and that it didn’t matter, you know.
CARLSON: Well, you said it right here.
EICHENWALD: And this was as a result of the, uh, amphetamine derivatives (note that “derivatives” is now plural — Ed.) that he was taking.
Many many years passed, and we have now the election. Now up until that point —
CARLSON: This is a very long story. You said he was in a mental hospital in 1990. Was he or wasn’t he?
EICHENWALD: Can I finish, Tucker? If you don’t like the answer —
CARLSON: It’s a really simple question. I’m asking you to please answer the question.
EICHENWALD: If you don’t like the answer, don’t have guests.
