    Default Trump gets pressured by real journalist and runs away.

    NPR pressed Donald Trump on some of his more ridiculous lies about his election defeat. It did not go well.
    As is true in so many ways, however, Donald Trump has blazed a unique trail since losing his bid for a second term. Unlike most modern former presidents, the failed Republican can't seem to stop talking.
    That said, he's selective about his interactions. Trump likes to issue written statements, for example, in which he need not worry about confronting those who'll challenge him. He likes political rallies, where he can bask in the support of his followers. He likes to sit down for interviews with conservative media personalities, in which he can, well, bask in the support of his followers.
    What the former president does not like to do is subject himself to real questions from journalists who have no interest in advancing his agenda. It's why it came as a pleasant surprise when Trump agreed to talk to NPR's Steve Inskeep yesterday for 15 minutes.
    Alas, the interview didn't quite last that long.
    The host, naturally, did what conservative media personalities would not: Inskeep pressed Trump to back up his ridiculous election conspiracy theories. It quickly became obvious that the former president could not. When pressed, it was excuse after excuse it was "too early" to claim fraud, his attorney was no good, things just seem suspicious. But it all comes back to the same place: He has no evidence of widespread fraud that caused him to lose the election.
    It wasn't long before the Republican, rather than defend obvious lies, decided to cut his losses. "Steve, thank you very much, I appreciate it," Trump said before hanging up on the NPR host.
    It was abrupt, but it was not a surprise. The former president isn't accustomed to experiencing this much reality all at once, and it clearly made Trump uncomfortable.
    Trump then hurried off the phone as he was starting to be asked about the attack on the Capitol, inspired by election lies.

    boy, that sounds like any other politician including joe biden who's probably the least transparent modern president.

    the guy didn't even go on cable news to sell his social spending bill, much less take any questions about it or anything else related to his failings for that matter.

    you're a hack.

    The guy who said he would run into a school with an active shooter could not last 10 minutes with NPR.

    Hillary testified for 11 hours before a congressional committee because she did nothing wrong.

    Trump couldn't last 11 minutes with NPR.

    This was Trump's first attempt talking to a non-conservative media outlet. Epic Disaster. Epic Snowflake.

    After walking out on NPR, the first question is, how little of Trump's mind is left?

    Hostile media outlet? All the NPR reporter did was ask him for his evidence that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

    He hung up the phone.
