In this video, compiled by “60 Minutes Overtime,” you’ll hear the back-stories of our favorite walk-offs from the past 40 years. In 2007, French president Nicolas Sarkozy stormed away and left Lesley Stahl asking, “Pourquoi?” Steve Kroft remembers a walk-off performed with “verve” by Russia’s Minister of Atomic Energy and a funny attempted walk-off by Edward Teller, father of the H-bomb, during a Mike Wallace interview.
You’ll also see the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, former presidential candidate Ross Perot, and former Russian president Boris Yeltsin all stomp off in a huff.
