The hour-long special, hosted by Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, featured multiple montages of Trump delivering his signature pro-business stump lines, a tour of the Trumps’ Fifth Avenue penthouse, and a walk-through of the newest Trump property blocks from the White House.

  1. Well, that may not be “news”, but it is truly “special” (in the church-lady sense).

    To mold a new reality

    Yeah. Not on Chump’s watch.


  5. “How terrible!” say a bunch of people who will probably vote for Trump.
