Bill O’Reilly ended his interview with Donald Trump tonight by basically going “I told you so.” A day before the Fox News debate Trump skipped, O’Reilly confronted The Donald about ditching and practically begged him to reconsider. It didn’t work, Trump avoided the debate to raise money for veterans, and he came in second in Iowa. Well, tonight O’Reilly followed up and said he was right, asking Trump, “You want to confirm that?” Trump refused to say he was right, repeatedly pointing to the veterans’ event he held. O’Reilly dismissively said he could have held that on any day of the week. He told Trump that he was right all along and he should have participated in the debate, because not doing so may have cost him a victory. Watch above, via Fox News.

Donald Trump is holding a rally in Florence, South Carolina tonight ahead of the New Hampshire primary next week. Trump had a busy schedule planned for today with multiple rallies set for New Hampshire, but he had to call them off due to the snow. Watch live above:
Barbara Bush sat down for an interview with CNN, alongside her son Jeb Bush, and had quite a bit to say about Donald Trump. She said, “He doesn’t give many answers to how he would solve problems. He sort of makes faces and says insulting things.” Bush expressed her disdain with the “terrible” things Trump has said about women. “I’m a woman,” she said, “I’m not crazy about what he says about women.” When asked what she thinks about Trump, Bush said, “I don’t think about him at all… I’m sick of him.” Watch above, via CNN.

A “white advocate” appeared on CNN this afternoon to defend his group making New Hampshire robocalls to get people to support Donald Trump, and he had a lot to say about Muslims. Jared Taylor is one of the voices on a pro-Trump robocall that declares “We don’t need Muslims.” CNN’s Drew Griffin spoke to Taylor about his views, and as far as he’s concerned, many Americans are alarmed by “an immigration policy that is making the United States majority non-white.” And that’s only the tip of the iceberg:
“Why would we want more Muslims? Muslims have been a terrible problem for Europe, and here they want to pray five times a day, stop the assembly line, they want foot baths before they go to prayer, they want women-only swimming pool hours, and some of them want to kill us! Why should anyone want more Muslims?”
Here’s some good news for you going into the weekend: Donald Trump told Steve Marzberg today that he will definitely be attending the next debate moderated by his foe, Megyn Kelly. Looks like she called it! Appearing on Malzberg’s show on Newsmax, he insisted, “No, I’ll be there. I have no objection to being there.” He went on to say that he didn’t skip the last debate because of Kelly, anyway. He said he didn’t attend the debate because of the sarcastic statement made by Fox News after he polled his Twitter followers on whether or not he should skip the debate… because of Kelly. He then reminded Malzberg that he hosted an event to coincide with the debate and his event raised $6 million for veterans, which is a group of people he really Continue reading "Trump on Next Debate Moderated by Kelly: ‘I’ll Be There’"
It’s getting harder and harder to shock people, but Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is still trying, probably without trying. At a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire Thursday night, Trump was hitting on a familiar theme when he added a little something extra: a weirdly-whispered f-bomb in the middle of a screed that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. While doing his trademark riff on bringing U.S. companies back from Mexico, Trump told the crowd that the goal of enticing corporations to return to New Hampshire from Mexico was to allow New Hampshire residents the chance to express their, um, appreciation. The expletive is clear enough from Trump’s lip movements, but I’ve goosed the audio as well so you can hear the whispered attempt at self-censorship:
We’re gonna bring businesses back. We’re gonna have businesses that used to be in New Hampshire, that are now in Mexico, Continue reading "Donald Trump Drops F-Bomb at New Hampshire Rally"
Fox News host Megyn Kelly appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America Friday, telling host George Stephanopoulos that she expected Donald Trump to show up for the next Fox News Republican debate. Trump skipped the last debate in protest of the fact that Kelly, who had asked him a difficult question about his treatment of women in the first Fox debate, was going to be a moderator. A few days later, Trump’s lead in Iowa slipped and he finished in second. Kelly, who will also moderate the March debate, told Stephanopoulos that Trump was not committed to the debate yet, but she expected him to be there. “I think he will be. He hasn’t committed but he will show up at that one, which is great because Brett, Chris and I will be moderating it– Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and myself.” “We will just move our Trump questions from Continue reading "Megyn Kelly: I Don’t Think Trump’s Going to Skip Next Fox Debate"
