Trump now claims MSNBC edited abortion tape
Rather than take responsibility for his mistakes, Donald Trump has once again put blame elsewhere for his misstep.
“You really ought to hear the whole thing,” Trump told guest host Eric Bolling. “This is a long convoluted question. This was a long discussion, and they just cut it out. And, frankly, it was extremely — it was really convoluted.”
“It could be that I misspoke,” he continued. “But this was a long, convoluted subject. We talked about Catholicism and his religion, and [Chris Matthews] went back and forth about that. This was a very long, convoluted discussion which, frankly, they don’t want on television because it was too long.”
But in a statement to TVNewser, MSNBC strongly denied they had edited the interview. “The town hall interview with Donald Trump was taped in advance and then aired in its entirety. Absolutely no part of the exchange between Trump and Chris Matthews was edited out,” they responded.
