When Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Fox News host Bill O’Reilly share space on the same television screen one wonders how the entire universe doesn’t implode from so much concentrated stupidity being in the same place at the same time.
The host of “The O’Reilly Factor” asked Trump for his response to President Barack Obama stating Trump is unfit to be president. The bombastic businessman wasted no time attacking Obama, “I think he’s the worst president maybe in the history of our country. He’s been weak. He’s been ineffective. Look at the so-called recovery setting record lows. I guess not since 1949 has there been anything like it. You look at home ownership.” Trump continued, “Look at what happened as an example; he talks about Ukraine. I believe I know more about foreign policy than he knows. Look at Ukraine. He talks about Ukraine, right? How tough he is. How tough he was with Russia. In the meantime, they took over Crimea, and I understood that. And most papers covered what I said accurately. Some didn’t because the press is so dishonest.”
It is always amusing when Trump, the most dishonest politician in American history, calls someone else dishonest. O’Reilly asked Trump another softball question, “This Kahn situation; because the press is running wild with it. In hindsight wouldn’t if have been smarter just for your campaign just to pretty much ignore him?” O’Reilly was referring to when Trump attacked the parents of a dead U.S. soldier who happened to be Muslim. Trump, however, wasn’t ready to back down. He responded, “Well I was watching television and I thought ‘isn’t that nice?’ and then I was viciously attacked at the Democratic National Convention by Mr. Kahn and I responded to that vicious attack. What happened is the press took it and made it a big deal.”
When an individual running for president insults the parents of a soldier, of which the president is the commander, yeah. That’s a big deal.
