Source: Frustration in White House over ABC interview


Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump chastised his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney for coughing during the taping of a TV interview, ordering the aide out of the Oval Office while he was in the middle of an answer.

Trump, during an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that aired Sunday, was in the middle of telling the journalist about releasing a financial statement when Mulvaney sounded off a cough that can be heard during the President's remark.

"Let's do that over. He's coughing in the middle of my answer," Trump said, pointing toward Mulvaney.
"Yeah. OK," Stephanopoulos said.

"I don't like that, you know, I don't like that," Trump said, as Stephanopoulos notes that the cough is from "your chief of staff."

"If you're going to cough, please leave the room. You just can't, you just can't cough," Trump said, shaking his head. "Boy, oh boy."......................

Mick's boss is not concerned about his health--only that he is interrupting the interview.

1. Was Mulvaney coughing as a way of trying to signal Trump

to stop saying the stupid thing he was apparently about to say?

Trump: "Well, of course I would have been happy to meet with Putin himself if he had dirt on Hillary...."

Mulvaney: *cough*

Trump: "Stop coughing in the middle of my answer, Mulvaney! I was about to explain how meeting with Putin to get dirt on Hillary, for which I'd offer him a penthouse in the Trump Moscow hotel, wouldn't be collusion..."

Mulvaney: *cough, cough*

Trump: "Get out of here, Mulvaney. You're interrupting my interview."

3. To tell you the truth

I think this is silly. I think he should leave also. It's just common courtesy. This seems like such a non-news story. I don't like Trump but why did they even report on this.

5. Did they edit out the scene

When his praetorian guard stormed in later carrying the severed head of Mulvaney?

6. I'd like to cough on him but that means I would have to get close to rump, and there is ...

no way in heck that I would ever ever want to get near this piece of garbage...

Perhaps every time he enters a room or something, everyone should start coughing? That would be great...

7. Reminds me of the Warden from ATLA's episode "Imprisoned"

"What kind of guest dishonors his host by interrupting him?! Take him below!"
