Donald Trump Did Live Fox News Interview Opposite Benghazi Mother’s Convention Speech

Donald Trump tonight called into Fox News for a live interview, but the timing of that interview was fascinating because of who was speaking opposite that interview at the convention.

Trump’s interview with Bill O’Reilly (below) aired at the same time as Patricia Smith spoke about her son, who was killed in Benghazi. Right after she spoke, when Trump was still on Fox, there was a video on Benghazi and two of the heroes of that night spoke.

Which meant that these speeches were not covered live on Fox News––the network that, out of all the three big cable networks, you would assume would have given it the most focus.

Fox’s own Brit Hume called the timing “interesting” when he was on with O’Reilly a little later, and he wasn’t the only one who noticed:
