In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly said that Donald Trump's brand of straight talk makes traditional politicians look small and dull, but that might actually be good news for the Democrats.

O'Reilly pointed out that Trump isn't interested in the GOP party line, instead marching to his own beat and seizing on a number of emotional issues that conservatives are furious about.

"The Factor" host said that Trump's rhetoric on immigration and his attack on the 14th Amendment may excite a portion of the Republican base, but it also gives the left ammunition.

He noted a New York Times editorial that demonized the GOP over Trump's immigration plan, which the Times called "despicable."

"The left is hoping to turn defeat into victory by playing the race card, portraying Trump and the entire Republican Party as racist brutalizers," O'Reilly said.

He said if Republicans "out-extreme" their far-left counterparts, they risk losing in 2016.
