O'Reilly: 'Extremely Hostile' U.S. Press Doing Anything to Marginalize Trump
Donald Trump is falling behind Hillary Clinton in the polls because he refuses to tone down his explosive rhetoric and because an "extremely hostile American press" is doing anything they can to marginalize the Republican nominee, Bill O'Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo tonight.
"There is no question that Donald Trump is hurting himself by using the same kind of rhetoric that helped him win the primaries," O'Reilly said. "Very ironic. Trump's shoot-from-the-hip, seek-and-destroy speech-making vaulted him over all his Republican challengers. But now when he makes a flamboyant statement, it's rammed down his throat by a hostile press."
O'Reilly said that the Trump campaign is "in some trouble" because he has consistently aided the press' attempts at marginalizing him.
O'Reilly said that Trump can still win the presidency, but he has to discipline himself rhetorically, start spending money in swing states to counter negative ads and generally present himself in a "less personal" way.
"Trump has a chance, but right now Hillary Clinton is definitely ahead."
