Judd Legum at Think Progress better have earned battle pay for staying home on New Year's Eve to watch the Fox News campaign ad for Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican field.

He even counted the Trump promos for us, so we didn't have to. There were 17. Eric Bolling in particular was so excited to have Trump to count down into 2016. So very excited.

And ultimately, frustrated.

Trump says, “We are going to have a great time next year. It’s going to be a great year.”
“All of America is watching you and your beautiful family,” Guilfoyle says. This is not true. I personally know many people who are not watching.

Bolling asks Trump how he can reach him on New Year’s Eve 2017.


“I really cannot understand you. I cannot hear you… I can hear partially. Every other word, I can hear.” This is the interview we’ve been waiting all night for.

“What has been your favorite thing out on the campaign trail about meeting the people,” Bolling asks.

Trump hears this one. “I love the people,” Trump says.

“Do you have a message for Hillary Clinton?,” Bolling speaking loudly now.

“I didn’t really hear your question.”


That works. Trump says, “I think I’ll be her worst nightmare but we’ll find out.”

The look on Bolling’s face is heartbreaking. It’s three minutes to midnight and this was his moment. He’s now having to relay his questions to Guilfoyle who screams them to Trump.


“We have a very big lead and I intend to keep it. Not because I want the job but because I want to do something great for the country and great for the people,” Trump says.

Guilfoyle asks Trump to reveal his New Year’s resolution.

“My resolution is to make America great again.”

“Good answer,” Kim says.

Bolling’s mic is working again! “How is the party?,” he asks.

“It’s amazing,” Trump says.
