O'Reilly: Trump Nomination Could Lead to GOP Getting 'Slaughtered' in November
In tonight's Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly addressed whether the Republican Party is headed for crisis.
O'Reilly said that it's becoming clear that many major Republican politicians might not attend the convention in Cleveland this July.
"The party is split over Donald Trump, and he may very well secure the nomination."
He said that Trump's recent complaints about the delegate process being "rigged" shows that if the frontrunner does not get the nomination, "he will not go quietly into the night."
"His point is that votes from human beings should be the deciding factor in the primaries. But that has never been the case."
O'Reilly said that the delegate system now is "chaos" and needs to be reformed, though that won't happen this year.
"However, if Donald Trump is denied the nomination and has more votes than Ted Cruz or John Kasich, the Republican Party will fracture and Hillary Clinton will become the next president of the United States.
"So you can see how desperate the situation is if you don't believe Hillary Clinton is suitable for the presidency."
O'Reilly said that most polling backs up Trump opponents' claims that the frontrunner's support is "thin nationwide."
"So, if he does get the nomination, the Republican Party could very well be slaughtered next November. Not only on the presidential ticket, but also in the House and the Senate."
