Hour 1: Segment 1 Cenk, Ana, & Alonzo Bodden. 12th year TYT anniversary. Various White House officials were taken off guard and frustrated by President Trump's impromptu Florida interview with The New York Times, according to Friday report from The Washington Post. The Post said that Times reporter Michael Schmidt gained access to the president at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday after club member Christopher Ruddy introduced the president and the reporter. No aides were present during the on-the-record session.
Segment 2 President Donald Trump has already predicted he will win re-election in 2020, and that the news media will cheerlead his path to victory because "they basically have to let me win." Trump gave a wide-ranging and impromptu 30-minute interview with The New York Times' Michael Schmidt at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Thursday, in which he said the media will embrace the president ahead of the 2020 election because it's in their financial interest to do so. "Another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes,” Trump said. President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that "we could use a little bit of that good old global warming" in response to the bitter cold hitting the East Coast this week, but seems to confuse weather with climate.
