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.
