Rick Wilson suggested Trump wanted to, “Slap Judge Jeanine (Pirro) in a pink kimono and have her scream at the TV every night.”
“You don’t get that from Nicolle Wallace!” Mike Lupica joked in response.
“This is real,” Wallace noted. “He wants what Kim Jong-un has.”
“He loves all the things that authoritarians have,” Wilson suggested. “He would love to have missile parades every week for his own ego-aggrandizement.”
“Serious question though, how does Fox News not fill all of those needs?” Wallace asked.
“There is no bottom for this guy, the black hole of ego-need for Donald Trump will absorb all the material in the universe — Fox can’t feed it fast enough,” Wilson answered.
“Fox News doesn’t give him enough political porn?” Lupica asked.
