Donald Trump: So are we doing a radio show?
Meghan McCain: No, this is an interview for The Daily Beast.
Donald: Oh, OK, good. I like you. I see you a lot on television. I like you and I like your father, I’ll tell you. And I like your mother. I like your whole family. Hey look, I supported your family, right?
Effective immediately, in light of your latest foolish attempt at seeming important, we [at Newsweek & The The Daily Beast] will ignore you and your hot air for the foreseeable future—or, at the very least, until after the Nov. 6 election.

|Meghan:||Have you hired any advisers yet?|
|Donald:||I’m thinking about it. Tell me, who do you like? Do you like Tony Fabrizio?|
|Donald:||How do you like McLaughlin? You know, the McLaughlin brothers?|
|Meghan:||I’d say stay away from Steve Schmidt, who ran my father’s campaign.|
|Donald:||So you like McLaughlin better than Fabrizio, between you and I?|
This. Right here. Is your. Donald Trump.
Many years ago, I attended a social event at Donald Trump’s Mad King Ludwig digs, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach. (Trump rents it out to anyone with enough cash.) Donald wasn’t there (I think this was during the Ivana divorce, so he was a bit distracted). But he was there in … oils. Right off the main bar, there’s a huge portrait of Trump. Thought you’d get a kick out of seeing how he sees himself. I swear I am not making this up.
[I]n 2008 alone, Bloomberg’s charitable contributions totaled $235 million. In 2009, Ellison gave his medical foundation stock worth $73.2 million, according to IRS records. Newhouse’s foundation reported making donations totaling $11.8 million on its 2009 IRS return. And a tax return filed last year revealed that the late entertainer Johnny Carson even left his charitable foundation $156 million.
Compare: In the past two decades, the Trump foundation’s total charitable contributions have totaled $6.7 million.
