Greta Van Susteren oohed and aahed her way through a Fox News infomercial for Donald Trump’s new hotel. But back in the studio, Andrea Tantaros found her own, special reason to gush.
The segment was a new high or low (depending on your perspective) for Fox’s blind love for Trump. Never mind that he repeatedly promoted – on Fox News, no less – an utterly baseless and bogus attack on President Obama’s birth certificate. Never mind that the only proof really kept under wraps are the findings of the private investigators Trump claimed to have sent to Hawaii to dig up the truth about Obama’s birth. And never mind that he keeps pretending – on Fox News – that he’s going to run for president. That only seems to endear him all the more to the “fair and balanced” network.
So yesterday, On The Record spent more than four minutes on what FoxNews.com called a “special behind the scenes tour” of Trump’s Washington, D.C. hotel. Or as Fox called it, “America’s next great hotel.”
We got to follow Trump and Van Susteren as he showed us “the most incredible marble you have ever seen,” a “room that’s incredible,” and a room that’s “just spectacular.” Coming right up, he assured us, “we’re building a magnificent court.” Also, “We have magnificent chandeliers coming.” In a month, Trump promised, “We start renovating the top."
It begs the question, how is Trump going to run for president and complete this masterpiece? Of course, we know Trump will never run. But just four days ago, he claimed to Bill O'Reilly he’s in the game.
Van Susteren didn’t seem to think of it. Maybe she was just too busy being super awestruck. “This actually is a perfect location!” and “Look at the top of the pillars!” were some of her comments.
Van Susteren played along with Trump’s 2016 snow job. Noting that the hotel faces the IRS, she asked, “If you’re president, what’s going to be going on at that building?”
Trump dodged the question like a politician. “I love that building,” he said. “I think it’s a beautiful building.”
Van Susteren also admired Trump’s business acumen. “I think this is a good deal,” she said. “It seems like a smart business deal.”
“It’s true,” Trump added.
Then he said, “If you love this country, this is the center of the world, right? And we love this country.”
Sure you do, birther boy. Almost as much as you love yourself. Because what says “I love my country” more than a sham birther stunt, designed to delegitimize our democratically elected president, and/or repeated make-believe presidential runs?
When our special tour was over, it was time for substitute host Tantaros, back in the studio. “You can get a room that faces the IRS. You can make faces at them, or gestures! Think about that! How cool!” she exclaimed.
Watch the patriotism, from the April 3 On The Record, below.
This from the same woman who advised listeners to “do me a favor and punch an Obama supporter in the face.”
Tarantulos’ chronological age may be 36, but I’m convinced her mental maturity age is still around 9 or ten . . .

I almost puked it up!!
