President Trump’s Famous 1980 Rona Barrett Interview

Rona Barrett has been mentioned a lot recently by Dr. Jan Halper-Hayes and specifically her famous 1980 interview of President Trump.

I had seen the interview before and even covered it here before, but I thought it was a good time to revisit it.

And perhaps it will be new to many of you.

Rona Barrett was “THE” celebrity interviewer in the early 1980s.

Think an early Barbara Walters.

And she scores an interview with an already very successful, 34 year old, Donald Trump.

Think of it….Trump at age 34.

In some ways, he looks and sounds almost indistinguishable from now…

In other ways, you can see the history and evolution of this man.

It’s really fascinating to watch!

But there are a couple key points…

She keeps asking him if he’d run for President and he keeps telling her no.

She asks why and he says “because I think it’s a very mean life…”

Wow, how prophetic.

The rest of it is equally chilling.

He even talks about how he might be interested in being part of a “team” — you think the Q folks watched this interview and knew of it and that initially put him on their radar?

I do.

I think this whole thing goes back decades….

It did not just start in 2015, no way.

Anyway, it’s only about 4 minutes long but absolutely fascinating.

Watch here:

This one actually has a few additional clips in it:

If you enjoyed that and want a little longer walk down memory lane, I’ve got you covered….

RARE VIDEO: David Letterman LOVED Donald Trump!

You’re going to love this.

So I have to admit something…

I was a huge David Letterman fan.

Always thought he was hilarious.

Genuinely funny and I loved how he would interview and joke with guests.

If Leno was your polished, plain vanilla comedy, Letterman had all the jagged edges….and the edges were hilarious.

But then something happened.

As he got older, he got more political and started going far left.

And with that move the comedy started to disappear.

Because comedy can’t exist when you’re too full of anger and political ideology.

So I want to you try and forget about the David Letterman of today and I want to take you back to the David Letterman of the 1980s.

When Letterman was in his prime….and when David Letterman LOVED Donald Trump.

Those are not my words, that comes straight from Letterman himself in this clip.

Watch and enjoy:
