The Internet Goes Wild Over Trump’s New York Times Interview: ‘A Whole Lot of Nutty’

Thursday evening brought a surprise New York Times interview with President Donald Trump. Times reporter Michael Schmidt was able to speak to the president at Trump’s golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. In an impromptu, free-wheeling, 30-minute conversation following Trump’s latest round of golf, the president insisted numerous times that there was no collusion with Russia while also maintaining that he feels Special Counsel Robert Mueller can be fair to him. With the Times posting excerpts from the transcript of the interview, Media Twitter had a field day posting their favorite bits from the president rambling off-the-cuff. Let’s face it — there are fewer things reporters and journalists love more than unchained Trump. However, a number of folks — many on the left — hit the New York Times for essentially letting Trump talk uninterrupted for a half-hour without much pushback or follow-up.
