It seems normalization is in full swing as Fox News gives the President-elect the MTV "Cribs"-treatment

This Friday, Nov. 18, Fox News will air "OBJECTified: Donald Trump," wherein the president-elect "showcases objects in his home and offers the stories behind each memento" to host and TMZ founder Harvey Levin:

While the rest of the world is worrying about the foreign and domestic policy of a man who has no real transition team plan in place (other than raining on Chris Christie's dreams) — a man who is accused of exploiting the working class for decades — Fox News wants viewers to ogle at his Fabergé eggs or whatever.

"OBJECTified" ought to pacify anyone whining Trump's interview with "60 minutes" on Sunday wasn't cushy enough.

To recap: since becoming President-elect, the only media members Trump has spoken at reasonable length with have been CBS's Lesley Stahl, TMZ's Harvey Levin (forthcoming), and InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who recapped for fans his five-minute phone conversation with Trump last week.

Trump's tendency to cozy up exclusively to media allies is unsurprising. Fox News non-journalist Sean Hannity gave then-candidate Trump $35 million in free coverage during his nearly 18-month-long campaign, according to MediaMatters.

From what's gleanable from the 15-second promo for his episode of "OBJECTified," it appears Trump shows Levin a gold-framed picture of himself as a child, his high school yearbook, and a leather chair in his Trump Tower office in Midtown Manhattan.

Watch the promo for "OBJECTified" below:
