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.
