Hey, Lesley Stahl, What Are You Doing in the White House Without Wearing a Mask?
CBS News is firing back after President Trump posted video that showed 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl not wearing a face mask inside the White House.
“Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes not wearing a mask in the White House after her interview with me. Much more to come,” the president wrote on Twitter.
The New York Times reports that “Ms. Stahl had worn a mask at the White House up until the start of her taping with Mr. Trump, including when she first greeted the president.”

The video posted by Mr. Trump showed Ms. Stahl immediately after the interview ended, as she conferred with two CBS producers, both wearing masks, the newspaper reported.
The CBS crew was tested for the coronavirus before entering the White House on Tuesday, an unnamed source told the newspaper.
The president was reportedly irate over the way Ms. Stahl behaved during the interview — no doubt hostile. He threatened to release the video prior to Sunday’s broadcast.
“This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about,” the president wrote.
I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME! This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 20, 2020
