What a coincidence that on the same day that Donald Trump clinched enough delegates to secure the Republican presidential nomination, Fox News just happens to have two prime time specials scheduled to promote him.

As Newsweek reported, "'A small number' of unbound Republican delegates told the Associated Press on Thursday that they will support Trump, giving him 1,238 delegates, one more than the 1,237 needed to clinch the nomination."

Fox Nation immediately trumpeted the news by promising a prime time night full of Trump promotions: "Greta ... Megyn ... Trump: 2 Specials, 1 GOP Nominee! Tune in Tonight!"

The first special, on On The Record, promises, "Greta gets a rare inside look at the Trump family - the rise of Donald Trump, an in-depth look at his family, a must-see interview with Trump's wife Melania and a tour of the Trump Tower." Considering how Greta Van Susteren turned her Trump town halls into Trump infomercials, is there any doubt that her hardest-hitting question will be something like, "Melania, tell me all the ways Donald totally respects and admires women?"

As for The Kelly File, it will rerun Megyn Kelly's interview with Trump from last week - which has already been blasted for its softballs.

The O'Reilly Factor has a Watters World special scheduled. The Hannity show has not posted its lineup yet.
