#EndorseThis: Trump Can’t Understand Why Bitherism Would Bother Voters

In an interview with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News Tuesday night, GOP nominee Donald Trump was asked whether he felt his incorrect claims of President Obama being born in Africa have hurt him with black voters. Trump couldn’t seem to understand why that might be the case.

O’Reilly Is Now Challenging Hannity As Trump’s Biggest Fan At Fox News

Bill O’Reilly wanted to reward Trump for his bullying tactics. He wanted to reward Trump’s novel strategy of trying to create conditions for a judge’s recusal by manufacturing a controversy about the judge.

#EndorseThis: O’Reilly On Trump’s Racism: ‘You Don’t Use The ‘R-Word’ Unless You’re David Duke.’
