Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Bill O’Reilly the day after this week’s big GOP debate. But he didn’t come alone: As Trump beamed himself into the interview via video connection, he brought along his entire campaign rally with him, assembling them in the background of the camera setup so that they were on call to boo at any tough questions from Fox News’ biggest host.
When asked about his complaints about the moderators at the CNN debate, Trump shot back: “Well honestly, I think I get better press from CNN than I do Fox, Bill, if you want to know the truth.”
“Well that’s because we’re the toughest network,” O’Reilly attempted to shoot back, as Trump’s minions roared contemptuously. (Yes, O’Reilly actually said that.)
The Donald dug in: “I don’t know, but I think I get covered better on CNN than I do on Fox.”
“But you want power,” O’Reilly said, “and it’s our job to vet you in the best way we can.
“I don’t mind,” Trump said in a deadpan tone — which sounded hard to believe from the guy who always attacks any media outlet that questions him.
How odd: The cable channel that was virtually the Pravda organ of the last Republican White House, is now locked in a hopeless feud with the new frontrunner for the GOP nomination. Along with the GOP establishment itself, they’re all losing to Trump.
