O'Reilly: 'It's Not Racist to Support a Wall on the Border'
In tonight's Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly discussed the state of the presidential race in the wake of last night's Wisconsin primaries.
He said that both Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders got a momentum boost after big wins.
But, he said, Sanders will not overtake Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.
"Senator Sanders is waging a spirited campaign, but the fix is in," O'Reilly said. "The super-delegates who can vote for anyone they want are largely for Hillary. End of story."
On the Republican side, O'Reilly said that Trump should have a strong performance in New York, which may re-charge his campaign.
But he chastised the GOP frontrunner for calling Cruz names after losing last night.
"Not presidential, not a smart move," O'Reilly said.
But he came to the billionaire businessman's defense on the race issue, saying that it's not racist for Trump to make a rhetorical mistake or favor building a wall on the Mexican border or vet Muslims trying to enter the country from conflict zones.
He said that he hoped Trump would come back for an interview, "because the more tough questions Mr. Trump faces directly, the more voters may be persuaded to back him."
