"Good evening. Are you having fun?" That was Tuesday night's greeting from the new GOP nominee, patched in via video from Trump Tower "through the medium that cemented the former star of The Apprentice as a household name more than a decade ago," Politico notes. "Today has been a very, very special day, watching my children put me over the top earlier. ... What we did getting the party's nomination ... I'll never forget it, it's something I will never, ever forget."

Although it's not typical for the party nominee to make appearances every night of the convention, Trump is so far two for two—and that enthusiasm showed in not only his showing, but in his final words on the monitor. "And by the way we are going to win the state of Ohio. And also of course, we are going to win the presidency and bring real change and leadership back to Washington. This is going to be in leadership, by the way, that puts the American people first." (More Republican National Convention stories.)
