The feud between Fox News and Donald Trump heated up this week when the GOP frontrunner announced he would no longer be appearing on tonight’s debate due to the fact that Megyn Kelly has been hired to moderate it.
Last night, Trump appeared on The O’Reilly Factor, where host Bill O’Reilly spent a full 15 minutes begging his friend to appear on tonight’s debate. Unfortunately for the Fox host, however, his efforts failed miserably.
“Forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks,” O’Reilly told him at about the 4:35 mark. “Just want you to consider it. You owe me milkshakes. I’ll take them off the ledger if you consider it.”
“Even though you and I had an agreement that you wouldn’t ask me that, which we did, I will therefore forget that you asked me that,” a livid Trump replied, according to Bizpac Review. “But it’s up to Fox, it’s not up to me, Bill.”
O’Reilly had to admit that an agreement had indeed been made, calling Trump an “honest man,” but he added, “I’m not going to listen to any political person tell me don’t ask me anything.”
In the end, the Fox host praised Trump for being brave enough to appear on his show, and the Donald in turn used the appearance to promote his event for veterans that will compete for ratings for tonight’s debate. There’s no question that Trump ended up on top in this situation once again!
