|Fox 11 News anchorman Jeff Michael skillfully set-up Carmen Trutanich|
for an excoriating ambush attacking Trutanich's record of deceptive practices.
Trutanich must have been promised a 'soft interview' to rehabilitate his deceitful record and fell into an apparently well-planned trap.
|Trutanich's smug smile was not destined not to last long as the potential puff piece|
swiftly turned into an excoriating condemnation of his lie-leaden campaign.
|Trutanich could not conceal his shock at the realization that instead of being given a softball|
he was having to field a rain of blows that laid bare his deceptive practices. Karma's bitch.
|Trutanich's worried expression continued as he tried to give an explanation|
for his failure to honor his 'Pledge to Serve' not run for higher political office.
|Trutanich must have been praying for the earth to open up and swallow him|
as he tried to explain his record of failure, deceit and deception.
The promised puff-piece had swiftly and skillfully descended into an excruciatingly painful condemnation of Trutanich's highly questionable tactics, and it was clear that Trutanich could not wait for the interrogation to end.
|Trutanich rises to leave before Jeff Michael had finished speaking, |
perhaps indicating Trutanich's inability to be confronted with his woeful record.
As Fox 11 News anchorman Jeff Michael started to bring Trutanich's misery to an end, the wannabe DA indicated that he had 'had enough' and the ambushed trickster suddenly got up to leave while Michael promised to have him back for another interview. "Next time let's talk about the issues!" was all Trutanich could say as he rose to leave, scarcely able to contain himself from losing his composure completely.
Unfortunately, as we go to press, Fox 11 News has not provided a videocast of the interview, so all we have at present are these screenshots of Trutanich getting a taste of his own medicine. Hopefully, Fox 11 News will soon videocast the interview to allow those who missed Trutanich being confronted with his record an opportunity to see Trutanich for what his is; a liar.
Having seen Trutanich squirm at being thoroughly laid bare, it is no wonder that he steadfastly refuses to debate his challengers. As District Attorney candidate Alan Jackson's campaign manager John Thomas said of Trutanich's declining to debate at PORAC's Public Safety Forum, Trutanich "has something in common with convicted murderer Phil Spector; he does not want to be cross-examined by Alan Jackson." Now we can see why.
