The Republican convention is so bad that Donald Trump ignored it and instead called into Fox News to do a live interview with Bill O’Reilly.
While the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith was speaking live at the Republican convention, Donald Trump showed how much he cared by hijacking his own convention by calling into Fox News.

Donald Trump loves to talk about how much he cares about what happened in Benghazi, and Hillary Clinton got four Americans killed, but while the mother of one of the four Americans who was killed in Benghazi, Patrica Smith, spoke to the Republican convention, Donald Trump called Fox News to talk to Bill O’Reilly.
In short, Trump’s name wasn’t being mentioned enough, so he did a phone interview to compete with his own presidential convention.
Here is what each of the three cable news channels looked like:

The main lowlight of Trump’s Fox interview was his lie that Republicans held the convention in Cleveland because he wanted it in Ohio. The truth is that Republicans selected Cleveland as the location of the convention in 2014, which was a year before Trump announced that he was running for president.
The Benghazi Truthers that Trump has trotted out on stage have been a sad collection of broken people whose speaking slots reeked of cynical exploitation. Donald Trump openly competed for airtime with his convention, because his ego is so large that he can’t handle not being the center of attention.
Trump convention Monday has been a blatant attempt to scare people into voting for him. It has also been so boring and bad that even Donald Trump isn’t watching.
