October 24, 2020 - Obama Doubts Trump’s Toughness


While campaigning for Biden, former President Barack Obama mocks  Trump by saying, “When ’60 minutes’ and Lesley Stahl are too tough for you, you ain’t all that tough.” Obama is referring to a recent interview Trump did with ’60 minutes,’ in which he walked out after arguing journalist Lesley Stahl was being unfair. Obama’s criticism of Trump’s toughness challenges Trump’s attempts to portray himself as the most masculine candidate in the presidential contest, suggesting that Trump’s inability to handle criticism is a sign of weakness.
