Oprah’s gripping interview with disgraced seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong left viewers with one lasting impression of him: arrogant.
Oprah did her homework; she knew that When dealing with a smug narcissist, who thinks he’s smarter than the rest of the world, you allow him no wiggle room.
Oprah got right to the point right off the bat with an interrogation-style series or no” questions aimed at extracting the truth in a no no-nonsense manner. When asked if he doped, Armstrong flatly responded “yes,” without a hint of emotion on his face.
He answered in similar fashion to other questions about using steroids, blood transfusions, human growth hormone, etc, to give him an unfair advantage over his opponents.
Armstrong’s sociopathic tendencies were on full display as he admitted to destroying the lives of other cyclists who accused him of doping. He couldn’t remember how many lawsuits he arrogantly filed against journalists and others who told the truth about his doping.
But the most riveting moment came when Oprah asked him about Betsy Andreu, the wife of a former opponent, whom he targeted for verbal abused over the years after she testified against him in 2006.
Armstrong admitted to calling Andreu “a crazy bitch,” and a “whore,” among other insults. Then, without batting an eye, he said, “but I never called [her] fat.”
