Fox News Hysterically Flubs Their New Year’s Eve Infomercial For Donald Trump

For weeks Fox News heavily promoted their New Year’s Eve special that would feature an appearance by Donald Trump to ring in the new year. This programming strategy is another affirmation that Fox is not even pretending to be fair and balanced anymore. But the real problem for Fox was that the segment was complete dud as both entertainment and advocacy.

Donald Trump Fox News

The hosts, Eric Bolling and Kimberely Guilfoyle, could not have been more annoying and obsequious. And The Donald was barely coherent. Combine that with technical glitches and missed cues and you have a evening of humiliation and unintentional comedy as exemplified in this exchange:

Bolling: The big question is, Donald Trump, New Year’s resolution 2016, campaign related, what are you gonna go for next year?
Trump: Well, we’re gonna have a great time next year. We’re gonna have an amazing year. We’re gonna make America great again. And we’re gonna do everything in our power to make sure that happens.
Guilfoyle: I see my friends there, Donny and Vanessea. It’s great to see the whole family and Ivanka. And Melania looking so gorgeous. I gotta tell ya, she would make an amazing First Lady of America.

Guilfoyle: If we call in 2017 to come ring in New Year’s, are we calling the White House and can we get the call through?
Trump: Well, I hope you’re gonna be calling the White House and I promise you will get through. You’ll always be invited and we’re gonna do something really special. We’re gonna make a lot of amends for the mistakes that have been made over the years.

Presumably he means mistakes like ending two wars, making health care accessible to millions, cutting the deficit by two-thirds, and bringing the economy back from the worst catastrophe since the Great Depression. But what these nitwits failed to realize is that on New Year’s day in 2017 President Obama will still be the president and residing in the White House. It may seem like a small point, but it is emblematic of the inbred ignorance of the Fox News yakkers and their buffonish guest, Donald Trump.

This inane chatter went on for nine minutes and served as little more than an infomercial for Trump. No other candidate was given this prime broadcast time as the calendar flipped a page. And he was in full campaign-mode, asserting that he would be Hillary Clinton’s “worst nightmare” and repeating his campaign branding and slogans ad nauseum. Given another chance to come up with a New Year’s resolution he again said only that he would “make America great again,” to which Guilfoyle’s trained puppy response was “Good choice.” I’m really starting to wonder when Trump will turn his slogan into a jingle and have a tie-in with Pepsi or McDonalds (McDonald Trump? I’m lovin’ it).

To top it off, Bolling and Guilfoyle let the Trump family ramble on for so long that they actually missed the New Year’s countdown. The right side of the screen showed the clock tick to zero while the Trump’s were still hogging the slimelight. Then, to cover their fumbling of the most important part of the evening, they initiated their own fake countdown after the new year had already begun. Seriously, these cretins had just one thing to do right on this broadcast, which was the countdown to the new year and they blew it in order to cater to Donald Trump’s lust for attention. Watch and laugh – and have a happy new year.

  1. If anything, Trump would benefit from less exposure than more. FOX and its panel of inept, quasi journalists, only make him and them look stupid. Thank you, Mr. Ailes! Job well done!

  2. This was done to prove that the Donald can control time.

    • That’s very funny. Thanks for my laugh of the year.

  3. Donald Trump is a coward (RVN), liar and fool who will never be President of the US – guaranteed.

  4. Melania looks like she is really sad to have to be there.

    • She and The Donald couldn’t look any more mismatched — Barbied Beauty and the Orange Beast.

  5. The best part of these pitiful excuses for “fair & balanced” is that people can really see what the candidate is actually like. Makes all the spin going on an unnecessary addition. The truth is the truth, and The Donald is purely a NY real estate magnate, with all the ethics implied by that phrase. Thanks, Faux News.

  6. So it would indeed be ‘amazing’ to have the First Lady of the US a former nude model. Stunning. Let Putin compete with those pictures, huh, Donald? Not to mention his other two wives, whom he cheated on. GOP family values and Christian living on full display. It’s like Hugh Hefner planning to run for office. At least Hugh really did appreciate women, to a certain extent. Donnie just uses them.
    Well, let Fox enable him all they like. As the field is winnowed, Trump will seem even more extreme and nuts. And Hillary will seem more adult and knowledgeable. Even my sort of RW husband has told his nutty family he will be voting Democratic next year. THAT was a Christmas miracle!

  7. That was priceless. Ivanka says they’re going to make America into a well known brand. Apprentice losers in cabinet positions, maybe? Hair Trump didn’t mention his other daughter, and his toothy sons give me hives. Just an all around yucky family he’s got, all of them just as dazzled by his brilliance as he is. Ms. Kimberly sounded like she was hosting a beauty pageant, yelling out those important questions. Bolling sounded like he wanted to date Donald. And here I thought Don Lemon being shitfaced on air would be the best use of a news anchor on NYE. Maybe the best part of this whole thing is the banner declaring this an All American NYE, considering that Mrs. Donald can barely speak English. Jeezus. Can this really be happening?

  8. Seems appropriate to have Ms. Gillfool and Mrs. Drump on the same program, given their prior experience as Victoria Secret’s lingerie models. And given the vacancy on the Kurvy Kouch, I think Mrs. Drump would be a good candidate, at least for the next few months; she’ll certainly help lock up the Transylvanian vote.

  9. I can’t decide who I hate worse, Bolling or Guilfoyle. They are two of the most despicable people on Fox and that is saying something!
