In his first major interview since P***ygate, Donald Trump ran to Bill O’Reilly a guy who has been twice accused of being a sexual predator. But even Trump’s milkshake BFF knew he had become unhinged as Trump meandered from attacking Senator John McCain and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for not supporting him, to claiming he didn’t care, then insiting they’d support him if he became president, then circling back to ranting against them again for not supporting him.
Trump’s visit to The O’Reilly Factor was after a Twitter tirade against McCain and Ryan. They have each withdrawn their support of Trump (though Ryan has not unendorsed him) in the wake of the release of a vile video that shows Trump bragging, among other crude remarks about women, “Grab them by the p***y.”
Trump has apologized for his comments but now he seems to think he's the one who deserves an apology.
On Twitter, he complained that “Disloyal R’s are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary;” that “[I]t is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!” and that McCain “dropped me over locker room remarks!”
Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win - I will teach them!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Trump sounded even more petulant and unglued as he continued this tirade on The Factor:
TRUMP: I’m just tired of non-support and I don’t really want [Ryan’s] support. …I don’t care about his support.
[McCain] was desperate to get my endorsement. I gave him the endorsement ‘cause he needed it for the primary and frankly he ran against a very, very good woman. I feel very badly I gave him the endorsement. But that’s OK.
[…] He easily wins his primary and then all of a sudden, you know, he does the unendorsement thing.
O’Reilly pointed out that McCain unendorsed because he “didn’t like the tape thing.”
Trump didn’t sound like a guy who was repentant for what he had said and done.
TRUMP: Oh, give me a break. He’s never heard salty language before. You know, John McCain, who has probably the dirtiest mouth in all of the Senate, has never heard – you know, you talk about lewd, it’s lewd which he’s never heard that before.
O’Reilly suggested it might not be a good idea to attack McCain and Ryan because if elected president, “You’re gonna need these guys.”
Trump seems to think they’ll come running.
TRUMP: They’ll be there. I would think that Ryan maybe wouldn’t be there. Maybe he’ll be in a different position. But McCain will be there, they’ll all be there.
But will they cooperate, O’Reilly asked, “after you’re trashing them?”
Trump’s answer gives an insight into his warped, self-serving, self-centered outlook.
TRUMP: To be honest with you, Bill, I get along with people and I think you know that maybe better than anybody. I’ll get along with them.
O’Reilly obviously wasn’t buying it. “I don’t know what good it does to trash people,” he admonished.
TRUMP: He was begging for my endorsement. People are calling, his friends are calling. And then the first sign of a little bit of difficulty, he unendorses. I wouldn’t want to be in a foxhole with a lot of these people. That I can tell you.
I’ll bet the feeling’s mutual, Birther Boy.
Watch Trump go bonkers below, from the October 11, 2016 The O’Reilly Factor.
That’s okay, Drumpf. I’m betting McCain wouldn’t want to be in a locker room with you.
Kinda sad, though — I mean, think of it: if Drumpf were in a foxhole with McCain, he might have a better chance of actually EARNING a Purple Heart, without waiting for someone to hand it to him . . .
Then again, there’s that large batch of blind idiots who don’t care about anything Trump says or does—they blindly follow along in agreement.
ANYONE else—much less someone running for the “R” nomination as President—who dared to minimize the service of ANY veteran would have been turned to toast before the end of the news cycle. And ANYONE else who dared impugn a Gold Star Family’s actions—even a Family supporting the “opposition”—would likewise have been turned to toast before the end of the news cycle.
It just proves there’s nothing that Trump can say or do that will burn his bridges with his batch of deplorable supporters. I actually believe he could rape a ninety year-old wheelchair-bound Alzheimer’s-afflicted grandmother in the middle of Times Square and then machine gun everyone who tried to stop him and still not lose a single one of his followers.
The “foxhole” remark was made when Trump was talking about McCain. Yes, it was generalized to Republicans but McCain, as George D. pointed out, is a Republican. In my opinion Trump specifically targeted the remark to McCain but at the very least it’s indisputable he included him in the attack. And this is not the first time Trump has deliberately denigrated McCain’s military service.
Donald Trump did not say, by name as the article states, that he would not want to be in a Fox Hole with John McCain. He made a general statement that he would not want to be in a Fox Hole with Republicans who are now not supporting him or unendorsing him and sayng bad things about him due to the video.
I believe that if the Trump opposition is to have any credibility, at the very least report accurately what the man says.
Your rubber room has been prepared for you.”
“WHEN YOU’RE OUT OF BUD, TOUGH SCHLITZ!”
That is the UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE DECADE!
Oh yeah, Donald, which is explains why Daily Kos gives Hillary a 95% chance of winning the Electoral College. Nate Silver 83.5%. Which also explains why the GOP is in full panic down ballot. Dems have a good shot at a 50/50 Senate (with Kaine tie breaker) and there’s even some wild chatter of Dems taking the House.
“Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll)…” – Hair Hitler
Every poll? Online polls on Stormfront? Fox Nation? Hannity.com? I won’t even go into your “landslide” bulls—t that even fast talking Kellyanne Conway couldn’t defend.
Trump’s a liar on such a scale it’s comical. No wonder why establishment con Bill O’Reilly is choking on The Donald’s smokescreen.
Trump supporters are going to flock to the polls, don’t be caught out.
Trumpster in huge trouble now! Grandpa Hannocchio can defend this large gem!
Women come forward against Trump!
