O'Reilly Begs Trump To Consider Attending The Fox GOP Debate

Looks like Fox is trying to make amends.

It seems Roger Ailes sent the memo out to the Fox talent that they want Donald J. Trump to take part in their debate slated for tomorrow night in Des Moines, Iowa. During the O'Reilly Factor, Bill-O did his damnedest to convince Trump to reconsider showing up for Thursday's event. Towards the end of the segment,

O'Reilly pointed out that if Trump becomes president, he's going to have to face Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian mullahs, terrorist groups and more.

"The Factor" host asserted that walking away from the debate sends the wrong message, and Trump should focus on the more important goal of getting his message out to the American voters.

"I'm not walking away," Trump said. "I was pushed away."

O'Reilly said he just wants Trump to consider attending the debate.

"Forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks," O'Reilly said. "Just want you to consider it."

It's hard to say what Trump will decide, because either way, it seems he can't lose support. Any capricious thought or deed will be met with spiking poll numbers, there's no rhyme or reason to his candidacy. Personally, I think it's going to be hard for him to miss an opportunity to be in the limelight.
