Greta Van Susteren’s “Meet the Trumps” special was just as awful as I predicted. The only saving grace was some of the hilariously snarky criticism.
Media Matters did a roundup so I didn’t have to. Some of my favorite reactions:
Van Susteren's brief introduction to each member of the family told you all you need to know. For example, when she introduced ex-model Melania Trump, Van Susteren gushed, "Take a look at her!" Of course, there was no mention of the raunchy photo of Melania posing in a thong and pointing a gun that has recently resurfaced on the internet. There was also "big shot in the Trump organization" Donald Trump, Jr. as well as "business mogul" Ivanka Trump "and get this: She's a mother, too!"
You can watch the nauseating spectacle below, from the May 26 On The Record. It's very brief so you'll probably be able to keep your lunch down.
Ever witness “Rumsfeld at War”? Inspired, no doubt, by Bret’s twin loves of anything Republican and Leni Riefenstahl films.
Bret also did some Dubya spotlight specials that were like viewing a dyed-in-the-wool fanboy chatting with a hero or star he’s loved and admired since childhood. Too bad Bret begging for Dubya’s autograph occurred during a commercial break.
She was starstruck and it was nauseatingly obvious.
