In June of 2015 Donald Trump delivered this infamous speech at his Trump Tower in New York City. 

When he delivered it, he was mocked not only for what he said, but also for the very notion that he was running for President. But right about now he's not really a joke anymore ... he claimed victory in South Carolina on Saturday night. 

We talk about how Trump went from being a candidate few took seriously to being the front runner with Mike Ananny, an Assistant Professor of Communication & Journalism at USC, and Ron Elving, NPR News' Senior Washington Editor.
