View more storiesDonald Trump’s Presidential campaign will deliver its first tease of a potential Trump TV network on Monday with the launch of Trump Tower Live, a web-only video series aired on Facebook Live that promises to deliver “nightly campaign coverage from Trump Tower.”
The show’s first episode will be co-hosted by official Trump campaign advisers Boris Epshteyn and Cliff Sims as well as TheBlaze political commentator Tomi Lahren.
According to a report from Wired, Trump Tower Live‘s premiere episode will include interviews with Trump campaign manager KellyAnne Conway and another campaign adviser, along with live footage of Trump’s Monday night speech in Tampa, Florida.
Chances are that Conway’s interview on Trump Tower Live will have a different tenor and tone than the interview she conducted with NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
In her Sunday interview, she admitted that the Trump campaign is “behind” and was asked repeated questions on why Trump mentioned suing his accusers during a campaign stump speech on Saturday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
The launch of a daily web show that will apparently revolve around hosts and guests officially connected to the Trump campaign follows the Republican candidate’s repeated complaints about slanted and biased campaign coverage. Last week, Trump ramped up his accusations of bias by claiming “the election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary.”
As the aforementioned Wired report points out, Clinton’s campaign has also been connected to web-streamed video content created by a political organization in her favor: Studio 2016, a show co-produced by the Democratic National Convention Committee and Clinton’s own campaign. Neither the DNC nor Clinton’s campaign has developed or aired any such party-controlled video content since that show aired during the DNC in July.
