Here are the written responses from that video taken from the transcript provided by CBS:

On Climate Change:

Lesley Stahl: You know, I– I was thinking what if he said, “No, I’ve seen the hurricane situations, I’ve changed my mind. There really is climate change.” And I thought, “Wow, what an impact.”

President Donald Trump: Well– I’m not denying.

Lesley Stahl: What an impact that would make.

President Donald Trump: I’m not denying climate change. But it could very well go back. You know, we’re talkin’ about over a millions

Lesley Stahl: But that’s denying it.

President Donald Trump: –of years. They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael.

Lesley Stahl: Who says that? “They say”?

President Donald Trump: People say. People say that in the–

Lesley Stahl: Yeah, but what about the scientists who say it’s worse than ever?

President Donald Trump: You’d have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda, Lesley.

Lesley Stahl: I can’t bring them in.

President Donald Trump: Look, scientists also have a political agenda.

As a rule, scientists do NOT have a political agenda. They have a scientific agenda. 

On Russian interference in the 2016 election:

Lesley Stahl: –do you believe that the Russians interfered in the 2016 campaign election? Our election-

President Donald Trump: They– they meddled. But I think China meddled too.

Lesley Stahl: But why do you–

President Donald Trump: And I think other countries–

Lesley Stahl: –say China meddled too?

President Donald Trump: And you wanna know something?

Lesley Stahl: Why do you say Chi– why don’t you just say–

President Donald Trump: Well, let me ask you–

Lesley Stahl: –the Russians meddled?

President Donald Trump: Because I think China meddled also. And I think, frankly, China–

Lesley Stahl: This is amazing.

President Donald Trump: –is a bigger problem.

Lesley Stahl: You are diverting the whole Russia thing.

President Donald Trump: I’m not doing anything.

Lesley Stahl: You are, you are

President Donald Trump: I’m saying Russia, but I’m also saying China.

I have never heard any evidence that China substantially interfered in the 2016 election. 

On his ridiculing of Christine Blasey Ford during the Kavanaugh hearings:

President Donald Trump: I– I– I saw Hillary Clinton made a really nasty statement. I don’t think they wanna be healed. I do wanna heal.

Lesley Stahl: I’m n– I’m not talking about Democrat– I’m talking about the country. You go out and you go to Mississippi.

President Donald Trump: The famous Mississippi speech?

President Trump at rally in Mississippi: I had one beer. Well, you think it was, nope! It was one beer. Oh good. How did you get home? I don’t remember. How did you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember. How many years ago was it? I don’t know. I don’t know… I don’t know…

Lesley Stahl: And you mimicked Professor Blasey Ford. You mimicked her.

President Donald Trump: Had I not made that speech, we would not have won. I was just saying she didn’t seem to know anything.

Lesley Stahl: No (UNINTEL)–

President Donald Trump: And you’re trying to destroy a life of a man who has been extraordinary.

Lesley Stahl: Why did you have to make fun of her?

President Donald Trump: I didn’t really make fun of her.

Lesley Stahl: Well, they were laughing.

President Donald Trump: What I said the person that we’re talking about didn’t know the year, the time, the place.

Lesley Stahl: Professor Blasey Ford got before the Senate and– and was asked what’s the worst moment. And she said, “When the two boys laughed at me, at my expense.”

President Donald Trump: Ok, fine.

Lesley Stahl: And then I watched you mimic her and thousands of people were laughing at her.

President Donald Trump: They can do what they– I– I will tell you this. The way now Justice Kavanaugh was treated has become a big factor in the midterms. Have you seen what’s gone on with the polls?

Lesley Stahl: But did you have to–

President Donald Trump: Well, I think she was treated with great respect, I’ll– I’ll–

Lesley Stahl: And– but–

President Donald Trump: be honest with you.

Lesley Stahl: but do you think—you treated her with–

President Donald Trump: There are those that think she shouldn’t have–

Lesley Stahl: Do you think you treated her with respect?

President Donald Trump: I think so, yeah. I did.

Lesley Stahl: But you seem to be saying that she lied.

President Donald Trump: W– you know what? I’m not gonna get into it because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won.

Jesus, I don’t even have a response to this. 

There was a lot more in this interview which included Trump saying he trusts Kim Jong Un, does not necessarily trust his Secretary of Defense James Mattis, denying that he is a baby, and refusing to pledge that he would not shut down the Mueller investigation. 

It is just the latest look inside of the mind of an individual with a vast sea of ignorance and an obvious mental illness whose manic episodes threaten our country and the lives of our fellow citizens.

    “The Republican Club”

    ~IT~ shows a slimmed-down Trump sandwiched between Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon, directly across from Abraham Lincoln. Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and both Bushes are also in the imaginary scene.

    Amateur art critics sneered on social media that the painting was “tacky,” “a travesty,” or “blasphemy.” Some said it looked like the political version of the famous
    “dogs playing poker” painting.

    he said, he found “Trump hard to paint” because of his skin tone and {RICTUS} $mile, but made him the CENTER OF ATTENTION anyway.”

    ” to prove that she does, in fact, have some Native-American ancestry, the hosts of Fox & Friends had a good laugh at her expense.”
    “The analysis was administered by Stanford University geneticist Carlos Bustamante, who happens to be an adviser to the commercial genetic testing services 23andMe and Ancestry.com. “The facts suggest that you absolutely have a Native-American ancestor in your pedigree,” he told Warren after reviewing the results. ”

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-and-friends-isnt-buying-elizabeth-warrens-native-american-dna-test

    “Trump “revived his nickname for her — ‘the fake Pocahontas’ — and told the crowd at a Montana campaign rally that should the two find themselves on a debate stage, he would challenge her to submit to genetic testing to prove that she has Native American ancestors.”

    Trump cared so much that he offered to pay 1 million dollars to Warren’s charity of choice if she provided a DNA test that proved her ancestry.

    At a rally on July 5, “I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.”

    Trump denied this morning that he promised that money and he claims “Who cares” in response to Warren’s DNA test.

    “Who cares? Who cares?” Trump responded to reporters Monday morning, and then denied that he had ever promised to pay any money.

    Q: Will you pay $1 million to charity of Sen Warren’s choice?
    A: “I didn’t say that. I didn’t–You better read it again.”

    Trump is $hitgibbon.

    “Trump said Stahl would have to show him the scientists who believe in human-caused climate change “because they have a very big political agenda.” “I can’t bring them in,” Stahl responded. Trump refused to retract his comments about climate scientists. “Look, scientists also have a political agenda,” the president repeated.”
    “Trump claimed that taking action against climate change could reduce the number of jobs. He said, “I don’t wanna lose millions and millions of dollars. I don’t wanna be put at a disadvantage.”

    In 2017, though, an analysis by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development concluded that the world’s major economies could boost their long-term economic growth by 2.8 percent to 5 percent with policies that lower greenhouse gas emissions and improve resilience to climate change. Failure to act, on the other hand, will result in a loss of jobs and economic output in the long run”

    “the United States would be the second most impacted economically by climate change, behind India. Meaning the U.S. stands to gain a lot economically by tackling greenhouse gas emissions.” < Last month.

    “From Mussolini to Hitler to Erdogan, fascist leaders position themselves as father figures and strong men. As long as he — and yes it’s always a he — remains in POWER,
    everything is possible.” ““Once you divide, it’s easier to control,” he says.

    The next step fascists take is to simply attack the truth — whether it’s in the form of broadsides against the news media or against the scientific consensus on climate change.”
    “No one can agree on what’s true anymore — and fascists love it when that happens.””

    OT? “The worst was a two-day sell-off in the middle of last week, during which the Dow Jones Industrial average dropped 1,377 points.”

    “We’re fucked,” a market analyst friend of mine put it this weekend. “It’s all baked in the cake already.”
    You don’t have to be a financial expert to see the irreconcilability of these three problems:
    1. Fed tightening
    2. Trump’s tax cuts depend on monster growth
    3. Trump’s tariffs

    The 60 long minutes was an important national tv interview for Mr. Muellers case against Donald J Trump. The world witnessed what a disgraceful liar he is. The proven clinical diagnose of Narcissist was confirmed. He is oddly evil. A mental midget. A complete worthless pos. He is a taker and a weak example of man.
