Last night, social media scratched its collective head as a Donald Trump press conference morphed into an infomercial. In an odd departure from a traditional campaign speech, Trump dropped his stump language and started to run down the list of various food and beverage businesses he has owned—several of which Mitt Romney criticized as failures in an appearance last week.
Trump devoted more than five minutes of national airtime to hawking Trump Wine, Trump Water and Trump Steaks, which he had someone artfully arrange on a giant butcher block.
"Trump steaks, where are the steaks? Do we have the steaks?" Trump said during the speech. "We have Trump steaks. And by the way, you want to take one, we charge you about, what, 50 bucks a steak?"
