And this is most likely the tweet actually used for it:

https://twitter.com/maddow/status/1318259930261032961

Same timestamp, same article, same account. A very lazy fake, and well below the standards we've all grown to expect from Tom's fact-checking. Hell, even the /pol/ threads originally spreading this have caught up with it.

Tom must have caught on early because he never bothered to come back to defend it (which is uncharacteristic, to say the least).
Go kicking and screaming, lol, it all means the same on January 21st.

Before this is over I'm betting you eat those landslide words :)

This is, of course, a badge of honor for Lesley Stahl. Not only did Trump walk out of the interview, he was so agitated he broke his agreement and published the interview himself, ahead of the appearance on 60 Minutes.

Kudos, Lesley. I hope you hit Joe fairly on the issues, because if not it would unfortunately prove Trump right.

Biden was being interviewed by someone else.

I forgot that, but the point stands. If Biden's interviewer threw nothing but softballs this gambit may end up being worthwhile for Trump.

It's so beautiful. These ham-fisted attempts to vilify his opponent just aren't working with Biden like they did with Hillary. People have seen the corruption in the Trump administration and are like "and?"

Trump is pulling the old  "Support me or you're fired" bit from every dictator ever.

None of this is surprising. Trump has made no secret of the fact that he expects high-ranking officials to be entirely loyal to him and his own personal interests rather than the country, and to do whatever he wants them to regardless of any legal or ethical concerns. Given the high turnover, the horror stories of working in the Trump Administration, and Trump's habit of furiously attacking former hires, we're going to reach a stage (assuming Trump wins) where nobody reliable or competent will want to be associated with him, and Trump will turn more and more to yes-men with no idea of what they're doing and fringe figures who have no business in national politics to staff his administration, and we'll see even more corruption and mismanagement.

And before anyone says it, or even thinks it, this is not Trump coming into conflict with the deep state as he tries to drain the swamp. These are all people that Trump hired himself while publicly praising them.

I think the twist is that, even as The Deep State, he still can't beat them.

4D chess against himself and he is such a worthy opponent.

The upsetting thing is it’ll probably work.

I think if he wins it will be through the courts halting counts of mail in votes that have been impeded through the corrupt USPS.
