Bill-O has met his match when it comes to loud mouthed bloviators. You know you're over the top when even Bill O'Reilly starts to sound mildly sane in comparison. Apparently The Donald promised O'Reilly the first interview after his big announcement this Tuesday, and it was everything we've come to expect from Trump.
Here's more on The O'Reilly Factor interview from Fox's blog: Trump Slams GOP Field: 'I Don't Have a Lot of Respect for Many of Them':
Trump sat down with Bill O'Reilly for his first post-announcement interview and discussed a variety of topics, including how he would defeat ISIS.
"I would find our proper general. I would find the Patton or the MacArthur," Trump said. "I would hit them so hard your head would spin."
Trump also weighed in on the Iran nuclear talks and asserted that the biggest problem the world faces right now is maniacs controlling nuclear weapons.
"Obama wants to play golf instead of deal with people," Trump said. "Part of being a leader is to get everybody in line."
What would you do about Vladimir Putin? O'Reilly asked.
"I would be willing to bet I would have a great relationship with Putin," Trump said, adding that the Russian president has no respect for Obama. "You can't have everybody hating you. The whole world hates us."
O'Reilly noted that during his announcement, Trump promised to build a wall along the southern border and make Mexico pay for it. "The Factor" host stated that there's no way that they will pay for it.
"You have to let me handle that," Trump said. "They will pay for the wall, and the wall will go up. And Mexico will start behaving. Mexico is not our friend."
As for his fellow GOP presidential candidates, Trump said, "I don't have a lot of respect for many of them."
"They're all talk. They're no action. And they're totally controlled by their donors and by the lobbyists ... If we have another politician, this country's going down."
O'Reilly actually challenged Trump on most of his ridiculous over the top assertions and how he was going to make good on his promises, and Trump's answers generally amounted to him insisting that everyone and their grandmother was going to bend to his will.
Trump's going to force Putin to be friends with him. He's taking all that oil from Iraq no matter what anyone else thinks. China and Mexico are going to listen to him or else, and our Congress is going to take their marching orders from him as well. Yeah, good luck with that pal. Not that it matters what he says, since everyone knows this blowhard doesn't actually want to be president even if the public were insane enough to vote for him.
O'Reilly wrapped things up by asking him if he was going to "slash and burn" the other candidates if he gets into the debates and it seems we got our answer. Yes. That's exactly what he's going to do.
Pass the popcorn folks. He's going to cause a lot of heartburn until he drops out again, which we all know is coming sooner or later. He's going to inflict some real damage unless they can figure out a way to keep him out of these debates, and even if they keep him out of the debates, they can't keep him off of the TV for more interviews like this one. This guy's a one man wrecking crew with absolutely no filter.
