‘I’m the Flagship on Fox. We Treated You Fairly’: O’Reilly Faces Off With Trump Over GOP Debate

Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly grilled Republican frontrunner Donald Trump Wednesday evening on his decision to skip the Fox News debate, repeatedly asking the billionaire businessman to reconsider his choice to boycott the event. O’Reilly deployed an array of arguments in his attempt to persuade Trump to cave in and participate in the Thursday debate, contending the real estate mogul would have the “upper hand” at the event. “You have 60 seconds right off the top to tell any of the moderators that you’re a pinhead, your question is unfair and here’s why and here’s what I want to say,” O’Reilly said. “By walking away from it, you lose an opportunity to persuade people that you are a strong leader.” Trump said he understood O’Reilly’s opinion, but would continue with his plans to host an event aimed at benefiting the veterans. “But you can do that any day,” O’Reilly interjected, shaking his head. “Fox is going to make a fortune on this debate,” Trump continued. “Now they’re going to make much less.” The businessman added that he does not like “being used” and was bothered by a snarky statement put out Tuesday afternoon by a Fox News spokesperson. “This also had to do with the attitude of Fox,” Trump said. “I’m the flagship on Fox. We treated you fairly,” O’Reilly shot back. The two continued to quarrel through the second statement when O’Reilly invoked milkshakes he had purchased Trump in the past.
