Mike Cernovich is a writer, blogger, political activist and Trump supporter. He was featured on 60 Minutes this weekend on fake news. Scott Pelley tried to play gotcha with him but it backfired big time.
Cernovich did an outstanding job of pointing out that while the media is constantly trying to disprove everything Trump says, they’re always willing to take a Democrat like Hillary Clinton’s word for anything.
Here’s a key exchange from Mediaite:
Pelley: You don’t think that’s misleading?
Pelley: You believe it’s true today?
Cernovich: Oh, absolutely…She had a seizure and froze up walking into her motorcade that day.
Pelley: Well, she had pneumonia. I mean…
Cernovich: How do you know? Who told you that?
Pelley: Well, the campaign told us that.
Cernovich: Why would you trust the campaign?
Pelley: The point is you didn’t talk to anybody who’d ever examined Hillary Clinton.
Cernovich: I don’t take anything Hillary Clinton is going to say at all as true. I’m not going to take her on her word. The media says we’re not going to take Donald Trump on his word. And that’s why we are in these different universes.
