Donald Trump Jr. weighed in on a Washington Post ad that attempted to showcase the importance of the mainstream media's journalism.

"Instead, the Amazon owner had a last-minute commercial created for his Washington Post, with some all-star narration by Tom Hanks", Page Six reported.

But he pulled the ad after details of his extramarital affair with former television anchor Lauren Sanchez surfaced.

"There was talk that he spent so much money on it because he wanted to be close to her", said the source. It's speculated to have cost between $5 million and $10 million.

Reporter Wesley Lowery tweeted: "Can't lie and pretend it's not exciting to watch us have a commercial tonight". Yes, during one of the most 'Merican events of the year, every US automaker sat out actually broadcasting their expected red-white-and-blue celebrity-cameo truck commercials-only Chrysler even gave it a half-try, with almost a dozen ads it posted to the Internet instead of the TV.

The Anheuser-Busch InBev brand and Wieden & Kennedy used the first long ad to consummate a two-step messaging process that it began in mid January, by announcing that it would break new ground in the beer industry by adding a prominent ingredients label to its outer packaging.
