PDT interview with Piers Morgan

THE VIDEO HAS BEEN FOUND: The interview can be viewed via Bing here. We’ll see how long this lasts but at least it is available so you can watch it for yourself. Still not on Youtube. My thanks to Eddystone for picking it up.

And now, updating again, here is the video once again restored to life also discussed at Powerline. But still not findable from the usual sources.

WHY ISN’T THIS THE SCANDAL IT OUGHT TO BE: What the interview showed was how knowledgeable and sensible the President is. It also brought out a warmth you never normally see portrayed. The comments thread at Powerline where the interview was also shown is divided between those who watched the interview as I had, and those who found the video had been removed by Youtube. Here are a couple from the latter group.

This flushing of this video should be a big story, as it clearly demonstrates intention to smother and suppress any story involving Trump that is NOT full-blown accusation. You can find out-of-context quotations from this interview on CNN’s site that follow their narrative. Shocking! I’m SHOCKED!

If Trump came off looking ‘human’ then it’s been relegated to the internet trash can………….never happened.

The video is now unavailable. I can’t find the full version, or transcripts anywhere. I suspect this has been done to prevent anyone from checking on the narrative of his comments that has been/is being spun. Free press, people. An interview with the President is…unavailable.

Wow. They took it down. I watched it just in time. Really impressive interview- Morgan was civil and Trump is just so impressive: both with his grasp of wide-ranging topics and his self-deprecating humor. This video made me like him even more. Could that be why it was taken down?? 🤔

And this is the last of the comments from someone who was able to watch the interview:

What strikes me is how this puts the lie to the idea, universally proclaimed in the mainstream media, that President Trump is an ignorant, uneducated buffoon. Morgan touches in quick succession upon a very wide range of topics, presumably without the President having being informed in advance so that he could have brushed up on those matters, and I don’t detect one time when Trump stumbles. In particular, with regard to an area I have studied extensively, Trump gets the history and details discussed of World War II and Winston Churchill quite correct, such as Churchill’s reaction to Pearl Harbor, which he relates dramatically in his history of World War II. Morgan on the other hand stumbles on a major historical point when he mistakenly says repeatedly that Churchill declared war on Germany from the Cabinet War Rooms where the interview was filmed. It was in fact Neville Chamberlain who declared war on September 3, 1939, and he did so not from the Cabinet War Rooms — which had only just started operating a week before — but via a BBC broadcast from 10 Downing Street. That same day Churchill was appointed First Lord of the Admiralty and did not replace Chamberlain as Prime Minister until May 10 the following year.

The notion that we get anything remotely like a reflection of reality from the media has seldom been more clearly shown. This is what you get instead if it shows the President in a positive light.

Topics covered:

Meghan Markle
Climate change
Winston Churchill
Ronald Reagan
Jeremy Corbyn
Conservative Party leadership
D-Day
Vietnam War
LGBT in the military
Iran
Nuclear weapons
John McCain
2020 election
Guns
Who’s the British Trump?

The video has gone. So this:

And this:

Watching the human side of the President where he explains himself and his policies is apparently not seen as suitable for television. Same problem shown at Powerline where I found the interview in the first place.

    Censored by YouTube – its PDT

    So much for press complaints on restrictions to rights of ‘freedom of the press’, ‘free speech’, ‘the right to know’ over the A.F.P. raids on Annika Smethurst and the A.L.P.B.C. toadies, brown-noses and propagandists’ collective.

    When they hold the reins, the whingeing Leftard press barons at Google, Facebook Twitter, etc., censor only one side of the story so that we can only ever hear the Leftard’s side.

    Maybe if the Government closed down those Leftard brown-nose sites for a month or so until they have “rediscovered” the joys of impartiality and forsaken their totalitarian, bigoted, monocular view of the world, they might see some sense. If nothing else, it would certainly make the bludgers sit up and fart in church.

    What’s going on with the West?
    I watched the whole interview yesterday – 30 minutes. And now they cut down the video to 7 minutes?
    Piers was bragging that the interview is uncut and now they are doing this???
    Man, I feel angry. Why???

  5. Mark M

    Can you imagine 90 minutes of Prince Charles trying to convince you of the failed global warming apocalypse?

    PC: Donald, global warming is here and we only have 11 years and 7 months!

    PDT: Wait. What?

    Didn’t you say we only had 100 months to go back in 2009?

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/theroyalfamily/4952918/Prince-Charles-we-have-100-months-to-save-the-world.html

    PC: Yeah, but this time it’s different.

    PDT. Winning.

  6. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Let’s get this right. POTUS says publicly that he will negotiate trade on the basis of domestic health policy and a few minutes later wholly recants. This is genius? Diplomacy?
    This man is ignorant and remarkably stupid. The TV edits demonstrate it and the interviewer says so himself.
    So we have to ask why Mr Kates – who would indeed forgive Trump if he shot someone in the street – why does he promote this video????

  7. None

    Haha brilliant. I was at a couple of meetings in Melbourne yesterday and for some bizarre reason people just had to make some quips about Trump and so I decided I’d make a career destroying move and mentioned that actually I didn’t mind Trump. Oh my god reaction.

  8. Tim Neilson

    This man is ignorant and remarkably stupid. The TV edits demonstrate it and the interviewer says so himself.

    No comment necessary.

  9. J.H.

    No, Elderly White Man From Skipton, you miss the point. It’s not whether you agree or disagree with President Donald Trump, that is not the argument that Steve Kates is making. He is saying, why was the interview censored and removed from Youtube?

    You seem to be adamant that it showed President Donald Trump in a bad light…. Then why wouldn’t you want the video to remain available if it shows people, in your opinion, how inept the President is?

    Kates is talking about Censorship and the abuse of power that social media monopolies are displaying overtly in politics now…. It’s not healthy for democracy. Agree or disagree?

  10. Dr Fred Lenin

    Imagine having to put up with that inbred German charlie battenberg ,God what a pain in the ass that idiot would be ,drove Diana Spencer mad he did . This article has never done a productive days work in his life ,imagine throwing him into the New York real estate world they would eat him alive ,I hope the estblishment decides he is unsuitble to be king like eddie eight and his yank missus . No charlie three we want willie five , at least he is half English and has been of some use in his chopper, and his missus is English so the kids are three quarters English .

  11. mizaris

    It’s been removed from EVERY platform, including the corsair’s cove. Can’t have anyone seeing that Trump isn’t actually a child eating, womanising, bed wetting, ogre.

  12. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    JH: If you honestly believe that POTUS is being censored you have serious health issues.

    JH: If you honestly believe that POTUS is being censored you have serious health issues.

    you sir, are an idiot.

    This is a 7minute clip from a much longer interview.

  14. rickw

    Is there seriously no full and unedited version of the interview still available?

  15. Mother Lode

    Skipton,

    Have you seen the full interview or just the 7 minute gelded version?

    Let’s get this right. POTUS says publicly that he will negotiate trade on the basis of domestic health policy and a few minutes later wholly recants. This is genius? Diplomacy?
    This man is ignorant and remarkably stupid. The TV edits demonstrate it and the interviewer says so himself.
    So we have to ask why Mr Kates – who would indeed forgive Trump if he shot someone in the street – why does he promote this video????

    If I understand your edited comments above it would seem you are fixating on Piers and his appraisal of policy formation.

    You really should try sticking to the point. Is your elderliness beginning to make it difficult to maintain concentration? Have you forgotten to take medication that stops you forgetting things?

    First, he’s a damn sight better than the alternative.

    Secondly. I am sick of debating the fact of President Donald Trump’s existence and position with my friends who “can’t bear him”.

    I now cut them off and direct them to his speeches on YouTube and ask them to come back to me after they have viewed at least two speeches by this great man.

  19. Mother Lode

    Tinfoil hats all round!

    You made an ass of yourself and your best defence is to say other people must be crazy?

    It tells us all we need to know about you.

  20. Entropy

    Is it censorship or a copyright issue?

  21. Tim Neilson

    Is it censorship or a copyright issue?

    Good question, but if it were only a copyright issue you’d expect it still to be available on the copyright holder’s own platform (even if behind a paywall).
    So I’d say keep an open mind but be suspicious until and unless a valid explanation turns up.

  22. Enoch Root

    Hello,

    How long was it originally? Is this the full thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8dzpol5D0Q ?

  23. Enoch Root

    no it’s not….

  24. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Eddystone has broken the wall of silence! Trump oppression is over! The world is saved!
    Thank God for the tinfoil troopers!

    Available on Bing. Not available on Google. Quelle surprise!

  26. Dr Fred Lenin

    Now why would you censor that interview? Is interesting but not controversial ,perhaps it makes Trump look intelligent and we cant have that comrades , cant have him making obama ,who was mute wuthout a teleprompter or hilarity who sounded like she had skipped her medication .okiing indequate .
    The left are a bunch of geriatric teenagers inventing stories to make themslves look good . Trump was the soul of discretion and speaking off the cuff ,he even praised the German charlie battenberg being nice bcause of the Queen I suppose . Answered random questions extremely well ,even nice to the crazy iranians .

    This man is ignorant and remarkably stupid.

    Yet ‘this remarkably stupid and ignorant man’ is a billionaire property developer in the toughest market in the World and became president at first go against overwhelming odds.
    Not to mention best selling books etc.
    And you……well….you’re just an old man from Skipton wanking off to your own smartarse comments.

  28. Speedbox

    Great interview. Very entertaining although Morgan does ‘cut across’ Trump a little too much. Nevertheless, worth watching.

  31. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Ah, Humbug. Has Trump sold you a harbour bridge yet? Remind me, which was the last President who refused to release his tax returns? This none is making megabucks out of tinfoil!

  32. Mark M

    “So we have to ask why Mr Kates –who would indeed forgive Trump if he shot someone in the street …”

    President Trump, using well aimed bullet words of wit and humour has left streets full of green bodies with exoploded heads, from catallaxy to Cambridge.

    Winning.

  33. rickw

    That is an absolutely magnificent interview!!

    DJT is all class!!

  34. Zatara

    Remind me, which was the last President who refused to release his tax returns?

    How about you show us where there is some requirement that he do so?

    And then I’ll list the other 36 US Presidents who didn’t release their tax returns.

    Just as a reminder of course.

  35. Colonel Crispin Berka

    What the interview showed was how knowledgeable and sensible the President is.

    President Trump: And then the big moment was Pearl Harbour. In fact I spoke to Prime Minister Abe the other night. I said “You know Pearl Harbour actually got us into the war indirectly, and we helped Britain, that’s when we came in.”

    An official meeting with the Prime Minister of Japan. And Trump decides to mention Pearl Harbour. At all.
    And further assumes the Japanese Prime Minister doesn’t know this critical moment in his own nation’s history already.

    Sensible? Pull the other one, Kates.

  36. YHWHS Clay

    Would this have anything to do with the fact the full interview is not being shown by ITV until Thursday evening?

  37. rickw

    An official meeting with the Prime Minister of Japan. And Trump decides to mention Pearl Harbour. At all.
    And further assumes the Japanese Prime Minister doesn’t know this critical moment in his own nation’s history already.

    You can’t talk to the prime minister of a country about the countries past mistakes?

    Why wouldn’t the prime minister of Japan be interested in an outsiders perspective on Pearl Harbour? Particularly when the comments related to the war in Europe, which was quite peripheral to Japan’s interest and focus at that time.

  38. Amadeus

    While no great fan of The Donald, what people seem to forget so readily is that he is….like it or not….the POTUS. For that alone, the office he holds deserves respect.
    As for the “free press”, they really must be joking, surely? For they are, indeed, a joke. Free from reporting facts more likely. The ABC stopped reporting facts long ago and simply collect and broadcast opinions they prefer.
    As a former Australian Diplomat myself, I find it utterly refreshing that The Donald is direct and doesn’t beat around the bush in talks with other heads of states. There is nothing more frustrating and excruciating than to spend hours, days and years playing with words and producing (mostly) useless MOUs, agreements or communiques which have no real policy direction and (more often than not) produce bugger all outcomes.
    Like a competent CEO, The Donald cuts through the BS and his people can get on getting things done with purposeful outcomes. The antipathy the Democrats and their allied bureaucratic swamp have towards the current White House is classic power play when the incompetent representatives and their apparatchik mandarins are sidelined or ignored.
    Diplomacy has its place but it’s greatly over-rated and tends to be embraced by useless, interfering bureaucrats pumping up their tyres or prolonging their tenures. I called it quits when I just simply had enough of all the BS with no meaningful outcomes or results. I’ve now spent the last 30 years in the real world of enterprise.

  39. Entropy

    If I was an American president and I was meeting with the Japanese I would mention it every single time.
    It puts them on the defensive in negotiations.
    Of course, no doubt the Japanese would counter with “but Kyoto and Nagasaki!” At which point an American president would lean back, stroke his chin and say “and that is the consequences, and don’t you forget it!”

  40. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Zatara, I think you know it’s been a long time since a President refused to show his tax returns. This President refuses to do so. In doing that he might well bring on a requirement to do so. But the fact is that many others have been untroubled by the practice. Many of us think the reason he refuses is that he is not at all the businessman he claims to be. (I might add that while some like Trump think paying no tax via “losses” is clever, in my investment banking days a low tax rate was a red flag for fake profit reporting.)

  41. Tailgunner

    The God Emperors tax returns?
    Lol!
    Back to yelling at the clouds over Skipton, “former investment bankster”(Rothschild plant).
    As a “former investment banker” what is your opinion on investing in Trump2020 @2/1 odds?
    Trump2020, bitch!
    😀

  42. Tom

    Hey, Skippy. We at the Cat have a name for Trump Derangement. We call it Trump Derangement. The fact that you have a psychotic aversion to pugnacious alphamale billionaires since one ran for the White House and succeeded is now actually its own field of clinical study.

    It’s very entertaining of you to become the squillionth visitor to make a spectacle of himself here for that reason. Hang around — you might learn something. Or probably not considering how far gone you are.
