Never mind that minutes earlier his nominee for Veterans Affairs secretary dropped out, amid a series of allegations of poor professional behavior.

"I picked a very, very special day because it is Melania's birthday. I said, 'Let's do it on Melania's birthday.' Happy birthday, Melania," Trump said on air.
